I have an issue where my external hard drive does no open any more on any laptop nor does is show up as a device I can open. What can I do to get it open?

Guess it's dead, then. If it still spins up it might be repairable, but expensive either way. Could try these steps

Can you see it in Device Manager?
(Windows Key plus 'X', choose Device Manager, Disk drives.
If so, it should appear in Disk Manager
Windows key plus 'X' choose Disk Management
Rt click on it and Initialise
