Hi guys and gals,
Long time browser, first time poster!
I wonder if you could help me with a problem with my 2.5" hdd...
Suddenly stopped working after my daughter (who is noisy in the video, sorry!) stood on the laptop right above the laptop compartment, presumably putting pressure on the hdd.
I freed the read arm from the platter but now it is as you see it in the video. Any ideas what I could try?

Many thanks,
Womble

Whoa that's a horrible sound.

 

I am sorry to say that the HDD is gone. Those clicks are the click of death.

Any idea what's causing it? The arm is operational so surely it must be possible to do something?

Oh dear. :( lol
