External disk fatal hardware error


I am trying to get access to my external hard drive and hopefully the  data on it. However, my disk is not being recognized by the computer. I  have tried opening Windows disk manager and it immediately gives me the  pop-up window, that I have to Initialize the disk with ( MBR or GPT  tables) if I want to use the disk, but when I click ok, it gives me the  error: '''The request failed due to a fatal device hardware error''',  in disk part, it is being recognized but with the size of 0 bytes. I  had used TestDisk program but the disk is not being recognized.

Are there any other steps I can try for recovering data?

Should I try to tear it apart and then what to do?
