Seagate Freeagent go hard drive - 320gb...

Specs: Windows Vista
I have a Seagate 320gb Free Agent Go portable hd that has been ran over and has a slight indentation along the top. while it appears to have only slight damage, all I hear is a continuous beep and no movement or vibration. Nor will my laptop or desktop read it (Vista, XP). My whole life has been saved to this device with no backup. is there any hope for me to recover these files? I've tried to open it up using the videos on youtube but halfway thru, before removing screws, I became overwhelmed and put it back together. I know this voids the warranty( which has already expired), but I am desperate for a solution. I am willing to accept any tips on repairing it or taking it somewhere it can be repaired. Thank you in advance.

I think the only hope for your data is a commercial data recovery service. Cost of this would be high, usually $1000 (US) and up. It is good you didn't complete the disassembly. Without proper instruction and experience your chances of doing this successfully would be very small.
