If the disk isn't making noise when it has power going to it, it's safe to assume that it's dead. If you need the data recovered from it, you'll have to go to a data recovery specialist like CBL that costs a pretty good amount of money (hundreds, sometimes thousands of dollars, sadly).

Disk space is cheap these days. Always back up data that you can't afford to lose. 1tb drives are under $100 these days.

Sorry to hear about the drop. I've lost data before, and replacing it is a major pain.

My portable toshiba 500GB HD drive cant be detected by the computer. You hear the click sound my times like its trying to access it but nothing shows. Also the light is blinking.

That's the click of death - the actual hard disk inside the drive is damaged. The disk is dead, unfixable. Either just buy a complete new unit or dismantle it and replace the actual hard disk with a new one.

The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable

You unplugged it when data was still written on it so it was corrupted. Some files are still recoverable so use

It fall on the floor then i connected it to my pc

Sorry, the hard disk was damaged and this is unfixable, junk it. Try to open the case and extract it, maybe if you connect it directly it will work long enough to recover some of the data you stored on it.
