External Hard Drive Issues


I'm not sure if this is a fixable problem, but today I came home to find my external hard drive not working. Its a 1 TB Goflex Segate model.

It was working fine last night, however, after booting up the computer, it was not recognized. I tried to unplug/replug, connect to another computer but still I got nothing.

I don't hear any sounds. It doesn't feel like it's on, but there is just a blue light on to the far left.

Anyway, is it damaged beyond repair?

If so, are there any option for data recovery?

Thanks in advance.
