How can I recover data from an external hard drive that was dropped and is no longer recognized in Windows?

Someone dropped my Seagate external hard drive. Not sure which model exactly at the moment, as I do not have it with me.

It was off when it was dropped. It switches on, sounds normal, doesn’t tick, click, buzz, beep, nothing! Laptop and desktop can’t recognise it, even when the HDD was removed from the casing and connected directly to the motherboard – nothing.

I seriously doubt I could even find a company that does data recovery in Zimbabwe, so any tips on how I can at least try to get all my stuff off it would be awesome.
