If it contains private info do not bin it unless you have put it beyond use completely. ie it it wiv a ammer.I suppose a Techie would be able to fit a new drive in for you. The screws are meant to keep you out.
I am not worried about loosing any data, but for some reason when i turn it on, theres a weird sound, like a marble dropping, then theres bleeping for 360 seconds and then the pc picks it up. But it never lets me format, and the light on the hard drive goes off when i try.
