It may be dead, check the power cable and data connections.

Does it show up in Windows disk management? Unfortunately, it also sounds like you have had it long enough to be out of warranty.

If that is the case, and it is not working, I would take the hard drive out and see if it works by attaching it to a computer by its sata connector -- perhaps what died is not the hard drive, but the case power supply that it is in.
