I'm in parted magic on the bad computer, was able to access and back up all my data from the c: drive.  At this point I suppose I could just buy a new sea gate hard drive but was curious if I could possibly somehow fix this bad drive using parted magic?  I tried running TestDisk but when I select analyze it says Partition: Read error.   When selecting quick search it says No partition found or selected for recovery.

 

Anything else I can do, or is it completely fried?

Using Parted Magic click on DiskHealth or Gsmartcontrol depending on your iso version. Run the short and long test if you can. If Gsmartcontrol cannot access the disk then I would have to assume the disk has failed.
