    It looks like your hard disk has crashed.

    If you ever get a chance to see the data, use the TestDisk software to recover the data.
    It is always advisable to have a backup copy of your data.

    Send the drive for RMA if it is still under warranty. You can't do much here.

    if noise is coming it's a sure case of mechanical faliure.

    Send it to RMA asap.

    ^^ mate if windows is not detecting the HDD, then how can OP apply any of those recovery softs.

    @OP, mate i think RMA is your only options left, if in-case you HDD gets detected in windows, then you can try those recovery softs.

    All the best with it.

    ^I have suggested the software for data recovery.
    if HDD is not detected in windows OS then OP can try Linux for detection
