Windows 7: computer went from fine, to horrible in minutes

HDDs are highly complex, precision electronic devices. Even skilled technicians can't truly "repair" a drive, most of the time what HDD data recovery technicians do is transplant the disk platters (the thing that physically holds the data) into a working HDD so the data can be recovered onto a new HDD.

So in short, no, there's nothing you can do to repair the HDD yourself unfortunately. The best you can do is to backup any important data if you haven't already and then replace the dying HDD with a new one.
