I have a Western Digital 40Gig Hard-drive (WD400) that was in a dell. The computer was never damaged, the HD just kinda went bad. Sounded like the bearings were locking up, so i was going to try and go in and manually spin the disk to see if i could get it moving just enough to copy some files out of it. I removed the cover and turn the PC on. The needle on the disk keeps slamming into the center piece (part that spins the disk), and it makes a rubbing sound. I don't see any visible scratches on the disk. Is there anyways to make adjustments to get it working for about 10 minutes?
