Well right now, I'm thinking the hard drive was damaged. You can still take the drive to experts to recover the data off it, but it's rather expensive. This is assuming the drive is only mechanically damaged.
Does it many any unusual sounds when it's in use? If there's any clicking noises, it's definitely damaged.
