last night hard drive was working fine, turned the computer on this morning bios doesn't recognize hard drive and will not spin, seems to not get power. other SATA devices work fine just not hard drive. please help I have a lot of torrents saved, don't want to loose files.
I've already tried that, my friend that built the computer for me hooked it up to his computer and it's still not recognizing the drive. For some reason it's just not getting power, we've tried different cables and sata ports, still nothing. He is planning on removing the controller and swapping it out to see if that is the problem, I hope it is because I don't want to lose any of the data that I have on the drive.
I had the same hard drive. Apparently those drives have some firmware issue and you have to send it to Seagate so they can update your firmware or some ridiculous *** like that. I bought a western digital and now this one is going bad too . man are there any good hard drives these days?
