Hard drive failure

By guliver99 ·
My hard drive died. BIOS does not recognize. and when connected, you can hear "Knock, Knock, Knock..."sounds.
Is there something I can do exept paying hundreds of dollars for data recovery?

Try putting your hard drive in the freezer for a few hours. Sounds crazy, but it has saved data for me before on a failing hard drive. Nothing to lose..... Good luck

Samsung 80GB. Not sure I understand what you mean by "Check the PCB if anything is burnt".
