    Sounds like you did sometime to get the hard drive working again. It'll likely die again soon and may not respond to kicking. If there's anything on there worth saving, you should put it onto an external drive.

    Intense mechanical agitation is prescribed in the department of energy operator fundamentals, so it may work just fine in your situation too.

    I would be fragile with the iMac G3's because the internal plastics are really brittle in them due to heat/ age... just a heads up.
