Okay looked closer.

It goes through the first checks. Recognizes the drive.

It goes into Windows Opening screen. I hear the drive power up and something starts to spin.

Then it sounds like something is moving, and its 'flicking' over something metal. The drive stops spinning. It starts again, then something moves and the 'flick' is heard again. It distinctly sounds like metal being 'flicked'

Isn't there any way for me to just send it to the company or something and have them fix the little broken part?

Normally not, even if so, it would be terribly expensive. Data recovery depends on the hard drive size.

There's probably about... 60 gigs of stuff, but there's only two folders I need in particular.
