    I am not sure I am following your post.

    Are you saying that your Mac won't boot up?

    Opening the 2010 MBP and taking the drive out is pretty easy, you can follow instructions on iFixit. Maybe you can use a USB adapter or external enclosure and see if you can get it working externally.

    While you have your MBP open, throw a SSD in there, it will be a huge improvement.

    The hard drive may have failed
    The ribbon cable that connects the drive to the motherboard may be going bad on you.

    I'd try replacing the hard drive first.
    It's cheap and easy to do.
    Go to ifixit.com to see how to do it.
    Takes about 15 minutes.
    You'll need a Phillips #00 driver and a TORX T-6 driver (cheap and easy to find).

    Get a USB3/SATA dongle to access the old drive:

    Is there some virus and block the hdd? I don't know still I didn't solve the problem. I ll order usb cable for hdd and try connect to other pc if I can rescue my file then I ll erase the whole hdd. If I can't connect probably i need new drive. I think time for ssd.

    If you have no back up then you may have lost your data, or you can pay for professional data recovery, it’s not cheap.

    Do replace with an ssd it makes a massive difference.
