the above link will take you to the best support. Personally I might acquire the same model and swap out the hard drive but Seagate offers a wide variety of data recovery as well. Some drives came with warrantied data recovery

If you have "good hands" and a technical orientation, you can manage it by yourself (board and heating element). In any case, before buying a new heating element, check element's resistance with a multi-meter, maybe there is no problem with it. Be aware that before starting work on the machine, you should unplug its power cable !!!! In case you will need for an heating element, you can contact any washing machine spare parts store and by giving them your machine's details you will get it. Good luck!

SOURCE: harddrive is not detecting bios

get a hard drive kit that will connect it via usb or get a PCI card that will allow you to install the PCI card into a PCI slot and then attach the hard drive to the PCI card ( ensuring you select the correct PCI card ) ie if its a sata drive then get a sata PCI controller card and if its IDE then get an IDE PCI controller card.
Also check for motherboard updates for your computers motherboard and also check in the bios to ensure LBA is enabled and that its detecting the hard drive.

SOURCE: not make instal xp

It seems you are saying that the board will not see the new hd.
You need the instructions for the hard drive and the mother board to install the SATA drive.
Some motherboards may need to have the bios upgraded, if it can.
Others are too old.

SOURCE: seagate st3500320as firmware sd15 not recognize by bios

You need to access the drive controller and reset it using an RS232 to CMOS convertor and hyperterminal. The problem is caused by the firmware on the controller software going into an infinite loop.
If bios is not seeing it then none of the software tools available will allow access.
Once the hard drive is reset, the disk is fully useable again. A firmware upgrade is possible at this point, but usually we just image the disk and load it onto a more reliable replacement as most customers do not want to experience that sort of fright again.
I have fixed a few of these and have the equipment to do it, but it is not really a task for the amateur.

My 120 Gb seagate Sata harddisk got fired due to high voltage shock. What can i do. Is there any way i can reapair it. Is there any way i can replace the logic board of it with 80 Gb board and try.


I understand the value of the files that resides on the disk:) Yes! It is possible that harddisk may back to life by replacing the logic board but of the same model or part number. If it is not possible by replacing logic board due to other defects such as head crash and spindle drive motor opened/shorted, there still a big chance to recover depending how you value the data on it by contacting international Seagate Data Recovery support service with considerable service fee. Hope this helps.

I burned out my external hard drives PCB board and I am unable to find a new one


The Printed Circuit Board ON THE Harddrive inside the Seagate FreeAgent, or the small PCB inside the Seagate FreeAgent's external enclosure? (Case)

If you are referring to the small PCB that the Harddrive connects to, and has the USB cable coming from it, just buy an external enclosure, and install the Harddrive into it.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0HZ-wTdscgc

If your Seagate is like the one in the link above, it has a laptop size Harddrive in it, and it is a SATA unit.

2.5 inches across in width. (2 and a half inches)

This is an example of a 2.5 SATA external enclosure,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3195233&CatId=2783

IF you are referring to the PCB on the Harddrive itself, good luck.

One method would be to buy another harddrive like the one in the Seagate FreeAgent, and use it's PCB so that you can retrieve your information.

Then reinstall the PCB on the new harddrive.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Regards,
joecoolvette

PC does not see the hard drive


Your hard drive is bad, seagate is known to have this faulty promblem, there are many user out there who face the same situation that you have. The only solution to this, is to replace a new external harddrive, or buy a hard disk and insalled it inside the harddrive enclosure. You might be able to still recover any data that was stored in your harddisk if you take it to bestbuy, office depot or a place that willing to do a disk file recovery. It is costyl however.

Hi, My Seagate 80GB IDE HDD is not detected in BIOS. But the drive is spinning. Is there any way I can recover my data?


If data in your hard drive is really important to you, try to look for a similar model hard drive. Then swap the logic board of the good hard drive with the defective hard drive. If the cause of problem is the logic board, then your hard drive should work by now. If you are not that technical, you can ask a technician to do this for you. You can buy a second hand hard disk for a few bucks at ebay.

Hard disk failure... unable to start


FIRST PART OF PROBLEM, YES THE DATA MIGHT BE ABLE TO BE RECOVERED, BUT IT WILL TAKE SPECIAL SOFTWARE TO DO IT. YOU NEED TO FIND A REPAIR OUTLET THAT CAN RECOVER DATA ON A DAMAGED DRIVE. THEY CAN HANDLE THINGS LIKE THIS.

THE SECOND PART IS HARD TO READ BUT I WOULD SAY IF YOU ARE MIXING VOLTAGES ETC. YOU PROBABLY HAVE FRIED NUMEROUS THINGS. THIS IS NOT GOOD. FINDING A SECOND HAND BOARD IS VERY CHANCEY! YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU ARE GETTING.THE DRIVE IS PROBABLY RUINED ALSO. YOU ARE LOOKING AT A MAJOR REPAIR, REBUILD. YOU NEED TO START TO GET EVERYTHING COMPATIBLE, SAME VOLTAGE ETC. DO NOT PLUG HARD DRIVES IN WITH POWER ON OR UNPLUG THEM WITH POWER ON. THAT WILL DESTROY THEM. THE DATA MIGHT BE RECOVEABLE ON THE ONE DRIVE, BUT IT WILL MIGHT HAVE TO BE SENT TO A SPECIAL LOCATION TO RECOVER THE DATA. THIS IS ALSO USUALLY FAIRLY EXPENSIVE SO BE PREPARED. HOPE THIS HELPS.

Hard drive not spinning up


Hi you would have to buy a replacement drive that works that is the same as the one you zapped and change over the board to see if you did any other damage to the drive motor or send it to a recovery person which would probably be cheaper in the long run.
