Hard Disk seems dead. It's not responding anymore. You hear
a few "biz biz" when
you're trying to boot from it and then it stops and you can't
You try everything, and I mean everything because I know you...
You even knock it, you even rock it because you remember having
read that it might help. And that's true, the damned thing is
just stucked in there. You well may succeed, but maybe not. You
lost everything, and a hard disk.
Stop crying. The thing is dead, so why don't you
open it ? You have nothing to loose. Get a screwdriver and have
a peek inside. Don't touch the plates, don't touch anything. Plug
it. Try to boot, from it or from another one or from a floppy,
Observe. As you start up, the arm moves a bit (biz biz) but then
it stops. Push on it a bit. The head will now go all the way to
the inner part of the plates. That's the " biz biz biz
biz biz biz biz biz biz biz biz " you're familiar with.
If not, cut the power off and put it back on ; try something,
you'll get lucky.
Save your data on another disk.
At the next restart, maybe you'll have to help it again, maybe
not. It depends on how lucky you are.
