Question about Computers & Internet
There's a hardware issue with the drive. I'd recommend having a local computer store check the drive out (so long as they provide free diagnostics) It should only take them a few minutes to determine if the drive is good or not.
If you need files recovered from the drive, feel free to write me back, I can help ;)

Tips for a great answer:
To attempt recovery put it an an open external enclosure and have another one hooked up to recover the data to.
Gently tap the hard drive with an open hand and see if you can get it to spin up one last time.
Of course it can be sent to a data recovey company if you really have to get the data off.

There are no user serviceable parts inside the drive.
Opening it will just negate any chance of recovery.
You're not going to fix it by disassembling the drive.
The click's and beeps indicate the drive it damaged; there is a good chance (98%) that you have lost all of your data.
Note: By removing the cover from this drive the any remaining warranty will be void and all data will be considered lost.
Now if you still want to take it apart just to look inside, there will be one or two screws that are under the manufacturer's label that will have to be removed.
Pressing firmly, run you finger across the top of the drive until you can feel the depression where the screw head is.
Using you screw driver puncture the label and remove the screw.
Then you can pry the top cover off.
hope this helps
