Data recovery from an inop laptop hard drive

Likes # 0

I have a hitachi hard drive that I removed from my HP laptop that died. I put it into a USB 2.0 SATA enclosure to recover my data and files to my new PC laptop and external backup. After connecting it to my laptop with, the power light illuminates on the hard drive, but there is no sound of the hard drive running, nor does my new PC laptop see the connected hard drive. (It does see the backup external drive).

Is there existing software that will help me recover all of my data from this damaged hard drive?
