New wd blue stopped working

I bought a laptop and after 5 months of use. the 1TB WD Blue stopped working. My laptop BIOS does not recognize it. The USD1.000 laptop useless, all my work gone. A very bad experience. I’ve seen in various forums that this disk is failing. I dont think i will recover my data. It’s impossible to start the laptop. Does anybody know how can i do to recover my data ?

I am having a similiar issue with a Scorpio Blue drive that was not in a laptop but a desktop, I brought the hard drive to a local computer tech and they diagnosed it as a motor issue.  I am now trying to replace the motor on the hard drive, I have just emailed support and am waiting to see what they suggest.  I will update.
