It depends on how "failed" the disk is.

Search online for a professional "data recovery service".
For much money, these companies can repair a disk-drive,
just long-enough to make one attempt to copy all the files
onto a new disk-drive.

SMART stands for 'Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology' and a bad status means that your drive has errors and is likely to fail soon. There is generally very little if anything you can do to repair such drives.
I recommend backing up any important data on the drive as soon as you can and replacing the drive.
Most computer repair shops will be able to retrieve data from a failing drive and supply and fit a new one for you, charges for these parts/services will vary depending on where you go.

Hard Drive Crash - wants to re-install how to retrieve data to laptop computer

If the HDD has failed you can't retrieve the data off the failed drive. You can send the HDD into a data recovery company and they will read the disk in the drive and put the info on DVD and sent it to you, but that is the only way. The service is quite expensive. Just do a google search for failed hard drive data recovery.

There is not much you can do except try some other data recovery companies.
If your data is very important, in future you should consider doing data backups on a daily basis and/or build a fail safe computer or server system using RAID hard drives configured as a mirrored hard drives or a RAID 5 system with hot swappable hard drives. Also consider installing a UPS (uninterruptable power supply) to prevent a computer and server shutting down from power outages as this can will corrupt your data.
I hope you will take this advice seriously.

Well take the back cover off the laptop itself and retrieve the hard drive- then simply connect that to another computer and take files from there on to a external hard drive :)

D610 DST Short Status Test Fail

It appears your hard disk has died and it may not be possible for you to retrieve your data.
Remove your hard drive from the laptop and insert it into an USB harddrive adapter, (they are not expensive and you can use it later as a external hard drive). Then plug it into the USB port of a working computer. The computer should/may see it as an external drive, if you are lucky you will be able to copy your data, if not, you are out of luck.
There are companies that can recover data from faulty hard drives, but it will cost you an arm and a leg for their service.

I am getting an error code HD521-2W that won't allow me to reload


That error message means is your hard drive is failing or has completely failed.

I doubt you will be able to boot to it, but you can try pressing function key F8 just before Windows starts trying to load and select Safe mode or you can also try from the same menu, Last Known Good.

If you can not get that far and you have valuable data you need to recover, save the old drive and install (or have installed) a replacement drive and install the O/S on the new drive. Once that is working, add the old drive back in as a slave and with a little luck, you may be able to back up some of your data.

If your data is extremely valuable (meaning you are willing to pay to get it back) there are services available that will retrieve all the data from your drive.

Let me know if you need more help or advice.
