  6. why do you want to kill the hard drive? i once killed an old hard drive i had laying around for fun (an old 2gig ibm) i powered it up and it still worked but was full of bad sectors so the destruction was fast and painless (for me atleast) *took the hard drive, disconnected it or in your case, take it out of the comp *bring it to a room with carpet floors so that the drive's case wont look damaged *lift high in the air *throw with all your might and make sure it hits the side or corner of the drive *repeat as many times as you like *when all is completed, go reinstall it and listen to the pretty sounds it makes now hehehe
