My mom and brother has the LG Neon for free after a 2 year contract, not that great IMO. The touchscreen seems pretty pointless. I decided to pay an extra $20 to get the Samsung Strive instead.

You could always try the freezer trick. You'd need to get the most important data off first because if it does work, it won't work for long.

If it's VERY important data that must be saved, you'd need to look into replacing parts in the drive IF that is what is causing the problem.

This is all hear-say. I've been around long enough to have heard both of the above a few times but never heard any success rates. Haha.

They normally say for about 30-45 minutes. The idea is to contract the metal inside the drive so that the platters/actuator will stop clicking (hitting) the drive casing.
