Unless you have industrial-grade clean rooms, opening a drive case will permanently destroy it.

The PCB or formatting are where most faults are; the heads are very hard to damage electronically. Physical damage to the heads will have destroyed the platters.

You can buy an 80 gig drive probably for about $10.

Opening the case is not the way to save your data.

Take the drive to a recovery firm, who will almost certainly save your data, in exchange for cash.
