If it's salvageable, what would I do to salvage it?

Start with smartmontools: use smartctl to look at the drive stats and error log, and to run a long self-test and see the result.

If the drive is old enough that it doesn't support S.M.A.R.T. you
probably want to replace it anyway.

If not, any recommendations on where to get a good HD these days?

Anywhere in Akihabara.
