It is very weird all data should be deleted unless you have formatted or deleted the hard drive completely for some reason. I wouldn't trust the repair guys completely, at least I would try booting in something like Puppy linux (from live CD) to see if it can detect anything on the hard drive. I would also check for faulty sectors on the hard drive. (Ubuntu and Fedora have a feature that does this, and all free). I rather think there's something wrong with start up registry, failing file system or something like that.

Another option is to stick the hard drive in another laptop to see if anything is detected. What the repair guys do is to reinstall Vista from scratch anyhow, and check for hard drive errors. If you have the Vista installation CD, with a bit of luck all you need to do is boot up in a live CD that can read the hard drive (like puppy linux or knoppix), from there you can send the data you need to a external memory unit and reinstall Vista.
