BIOS stopped recognising my data-only hard drive

Maxtor 6Y080L0131013 (2003) Started making clicking noises--reader head flicking back and forth. At first, the BIOS still saw it, but not now. There are 2 partitions, I don't mind losing the first one but I would dearly like to salvage the second. Is there any software that can sort it? I believe the drive has lost it's "primary format?" I have reasonable computer knowledge but I'm no brainbox!! thanks in anticipation of anything that may help
