Long story short, my kids spilled my wife's sweet tea onto the PC tower, and it has vents in front which allowed the tea to soak the hard drive.
It's a Dell Dimension E521, and the hard drive is located at the bottom of the tower, directly under these vent holes, and the hard drive is installed upside down, at least in my opinion, which allowed the tea to gain access to the internal parts of the hard drive.
My tech friend and I cleaned it as best as we could, but the hard drive will not make that sound telling you that it is working. No movement inside.
I was wondering if I could be instructed or directed to instructions on how to successfully open this hard drive an attempt to de-tea the parts. i understand it's very expensive to retrieve the info from the hard drive through the manufacturer (Samsung) so if I would be able to salvage this hard drive i could use it for storage, since i have already replaced the drive.
help me bleeping computer techs...you're my only hope.
What is thy bidding? My Master?
