I have had a Gazelle value for one and a half years now. Recently there was a water-spill on it, and then it stopped working - it wouldn't just turn on! I have taken the hard drive out and connected it to another laptop running ubuntu, but there are two problems:
1. The hard drive starts a ticking sound right from when the power is turned on.
2. The other computer does not recognize the drive.
Can the data be recovered? How?? The hard drive is a Hitachi Travelstar (HTS721080G9AT00).
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
