  1. 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.
  2. You can buy an 80 gig drive probably for about $10.
  3. I have my important data on that, i know that price, hardware & price are not the matter, Just Because of my data dear.

    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.
