Its got amazingly small magnetic parts in hard drives, thats why they mess up so easily if you install them with a magnetic screwdriver (even accidently, like i did once)
The hard drive int his machine is about to die, so don't feel bad.

Try this. and I AM NOT JOKING.

Put the hard drive in a freezer for an hour. Then take it out and try backing up ur data on perhaps and external hard drive. It will die out again in a little while. Repeat the procedure until u've backed up all ur data.
