Recover Data from a hard drive (ext3)

Had a strange problem the other day....a 250 gig hard drive during a shutdown froze...and I did a cold reboot (the power switch) and when it rebooted the data on the 250 gig drive was gone, the hard drive was empty. It was originally formatted as a ext3 partition, and was mapped to some other computers via samba. Anywas I know that drive has not been reformatted since the data loss/disappearance, but I have written other data onto it. What I am wondering is if its possible to recover the data that existed prior to that freeze on shutdown. When I run fsck /dev/hdb1 it reads out :
fsck /dev/hdb1
fsck 1.35 (28-Feb-2004)
e2fsck 1.35 (28-Feb-2004)
/dev/hdb1: clean, 526/30539776 files, 7841572/61049000 blocks
