I have a hard drive that failed and I need to know if there is a utility that will recover the data from the HD.

Try Norton Utilities.
If the hard drive will not spin up, you will have to use a proffesional service.

since you may have nothing to lose, try this:
put your hard drive in the freezer for several hours. when you take it out of the freezer, rap it slightly on the bench/table then plug it in quickly and be ready to start transferring files.
i don't know exactly why this works, but often it does, especially if it won't spin up any other way.
warning: only try this as a last resort, of course.
