I may move, but is it alive...
Can you try to remove the drive from the laptop and then reinstall it? There is a small possibility that it has been displaced and lost its connection. By the way, will the drive open if you press the catch button as the system starts to POST?
Do not be too optimistic about this drive and the future, but if you remove it, you can note its specifications for a replacement.
