I have a Fujitsu MHV2060ah hard drive out of an old laptop. When powered up it doesn't have any abnormal noises or smells. When I connect it to my PC, autoplay pops up saying there are errors on drive D and asks if I want to fix them. When I look at the devices and drives on my machine, it lists "Backup (D)" and shows how much free space and such is on the drive, and "Local Disk (E)" but lists no information. Both of these exist on the old hard drive. I can access drive D and see all of it's contents, but if I try to access E, look at disk management, or right click to view properties, my machine just kinda stops working until I unplug the hard drive. I'm running Windows 11, not sure what version of Windows is on the hard drive.

It doesn't matter what version of Windows is on the Fujitsu HDD, if you are just trying to access data.
You have Bad Sectors on drive E: , Backup any data you can access that you want to keep to another drive. Did you run Check Disk like the Error pop up suggested? (ie) open a Command Prompt as Admin and type chkdsk /R, then type a Y for Yes to Unmount the drive. This will take a long time and may very well fail and you will not be able to access the data, but it might fix it enough to copy the data off.
You can also download DiskGenius in my signature. Select the disk go up to the toolbar to Disk/View Or Repair Bad Sectors/Start Verify. This will takes a long time and it will give you a map of all of the Bad Sectors on the drive. If there are more then a couple you do not need to complete the test, the drive needs to be replaced, it cannot be fixed and the data can only be recovered by Data Recovery Specialists
