What steps did you take to initialize this hard disk drive?

went to computer management and tried to initilize it that way as it didnt recognise the drive on my laptop. i've since discovered that there is a clicking noise which means the disk is corrupted and it will cost more money to recover the files than the original drive cost. Its just a pain. unless you have any other ideas i would greatly appreciate it as had lots of stuff on my drive.
