    Hard drives don't make noise when wiped by a magnet. Your point is invalid.
    Buy a new hard drive.

    As above, buy a new HDD.

    If you dropped it when it was spinning, either the header got damaged or it's off it's axil. If you dropped it while it was off, then the axil is most likely broken.
