And try a different SATA cable also. Be sure the cable hasn't been badly bent.
The system is acting the way a IDE drive would if data cable was on backwards, but this shouldn't be possible with SATA. Nor is any drive software going to fix this, since the system shuts down when drive is installed.
Here's Seagate's page on this drive - nothing jumping out there.http://www.seagate.com/www/en-us/products/desktops/barracuda_hard_drives/barracuda_7200.12
If the drive is mounted, un-mount it and let it stand free near system to test it.
