    I would say yes the drive is dead and if so no you can not recover your files.

    Happened to me once and it is a tough one to chew, knowing everything is gone.

    How the hell did your internal drive get dropped lol.

    Set it to Master, see what happens.

    If it's failing in BIOS, yeah, you're pretty much out of luck. :(

    Need to take it to a data recovery specialist, where prices are above $200USD.
