If your hard drive or a computer is beeping, it may have heads stuck on a platter. Just take it apart and move heads off the platter. Drive will work again and you can recover your precious stuff from it FOR FREE! Carefully turn the Disk platters in the normal spin direction and move heads carefully out and into park position. No clean room necessary, no special tools.
