Samsung MP0804H laptop disk
The Laptop began to boot very slowly and act funny. I did eventually get the blue screen of death. I figured it had a virus. I tried to boot it several times and it didn't bring the OS up. I replaced the drive with another one. Yesterday (two weeks after crash) I attached it to an external USB device and tried to copy the photos to my new drive, but it hung and started making "click, click, click--beep, click, click, click--Beep" noises. I stopped trying to copy, and put the drive in a static bag for you guys. Drive was never opened. I don't know if any specific event caused this to happen. The laptop does see quite a bit of abuse.
How to Remove a Hard Drive from Desktop Computer
How to remove a hard drive from generic desktop PC case
Typically, the only tool required for this procedure is a screwdriver.
The process of removing a failed hard drive from a desktop computer varies slightly depending on the type of case you have. While some computers may look slightly different from the one shown below in the illustrations, the steps to follow are the same for all cases.
1. Open the computer case.
To access the hard drive, you will need to remove just one left side cover of the case. Remove the two screws on the back of the case, slide the cover to the rear, and remove it.
2. Visually locate the hard drive  inside the case.
3. Disconnect the power supply and signal cables from the drive.
4. Remove the Hard Drive  from the bracket .
If the drive is attached to the bracket with 4 screws (2 on both sides), you have to remove a right side cover too. Or you may need to remove the whole bracket of the case, and then remove a drive from the bracket.
Below is picture of a hard drive with threaded wholes for four screws (to attach to bracket).
After you are done with the hard drive removal you may proceed to placing the data recovery order.
