Thank you for your reply.
I have solved the problem with local help.
Printed installation manual of Seagate 500 GB eSATA external hard drive has not properly mentioned how to use power on/off switch once connected to mains. I could get local help, who has already used the device. On/Off switch to be pressed for few seconds after mains connected, sometimes it comes automatically once power is on and USB cable pluged to the USB port of PC if power supply is ok. There is no indicator for the power supply (before device glows) after connected to the mains. I was in confusion whether power supply is ok or not.
Finally, It was found that the problem was with mains power supply and I have changed the power socket and adapter.

I just called Lantek at 4122798700 to ask about soldering on my board. They're going to call me when they find something out.

This is a SATA drive. SATA drives do not have a master/slave setting.
This is simpler than you think!
Install your SATA drive and reboot into the BIOS setup
Go to the Boot drive sequence window
Make any other drive the boot drive
At this point, you can select the SATA drive as the next boot drive, or set the sequence to "No other boot drives"
Re-bhoot .... SATA drive is now the D drive unless you change the drive letter in the disk manager

You will have to send it to a data recovery company in order to retrive the data sounds like the circuit board failed therefore the drive is not receiving power.Usually if this board is good you would hear the drive spin up.
