    Buy an external casing, put the HDD in there and see if you can read it through the USB port. Ask the shop for assistance with the casing, they may be willing to help you.

    Recommend to attempt recovery in Knoppix or Linux before engaging any data recovery services. Using dd or dd_rescue under Knoppix can recover large portions of failing hard drives.

    Mostly likely the circuit board on the hard disk died.
    Just find another similar hard disk, swap the board and you will be able to recover your data.
    BTW ... what is the model of your hard disk?
