With your MacBook Pro you can try accessing the hard drive of the MacBook you were given via target firewire mode. Link the two MacBook Pro's with a firewire 800 cable. If you don't have one they can be bought cheaply on eBay. Power on your MacBook Pro. Power on the faulty MacBook Pro while holding down the character T. If the suspect hard drive is accessible it will mount on your MacBook Pro. Run disk utility on your MacBook Pro to see if it see's the hard drive in the faulty MBP.
