Hello everyone, this is my first post here.

Well, my computer's power supply failed and as result it also made my hard disk to fail. The hard disk is a Seagate Barracuda 1000GB Model ST1000DM003. This happened right when I booted the computer for the first time in the day a few days ago. Later I tried plugging it as the only HDD to an older PC. What I got was being stuck in a black screen with non-stop beeping and an intermittent hyphen, right after the manufacturer screen ended. Then, I tried plugging this hard disk to a dock station but it didn't get detected. When I turned the dock station on, the hard drive would produce some mild "working" sound, no estridencies, but after some seconds, I heard some click and this "working" sound would end. Here's a video of it btw (excuse the watermark, just noticed it covers some of my comments):

Well, what's your veredict of the situation? I mainly would like to know if I can test something that could potentially fix it (maybe firmware-related?) before having to leave it in professional hands.

Yes, your HDD is broken, if you have to recovery the data, then pay the price for the data/files, keep in mind, it does not come cheap. Otherwise forget about it, buy the new HDD, and move on. You need to back up your data regularly, I did have the same situation before so that I did back up my important data/files into two drives.
