    Do you have AppleCare? If yes, then you'll want to call Apple and ask what to do.

    If not, you could take a huge chance at the wrap-it-in-a-towel-and-smack-it-on-the-table method (once, flat against it). Have done that before with success, although you risk damaging the drive even further. If under AppleCare of course don't do it.

    IMO you should call Apple first, though and walk through what could be the cause of the problem.
