My harddisk doesn't turn on...

Hello: I have a big problem with this device. On past tuesday I was playing with hdparm settings, I was working on debian etch O.S. Then I turned off Pc and I didn't notice nothing unusual. When I turned on pc again (an hours later) the harddisk didn't turn on and the bios didn't recognize it correctly. It's like the harddrive haven't power. I also checked the connectors and these are ok. I don't know what happened, but somebody said to me with a low-level formatting I could fix the problem. Is it true??? Here is the harddisk specifications: Manufacturer: Hitachi Type: Deskstar model: HDS722580VLAT20 Cap.: 80gb Thanks in advance Pd: Excuse me by my english but I`m from chile and I`m studying english. Thanks Thanks in advance

    Hello:
    I've cleared BIOS (With the jumpers in the motherboard. But I didn't try with the battery) and this didn't work, but there's something strange. When the system starts and tries to recognize the drives, appears the serial number: V320A63A instead of HDS722580VLAT20.
    Thanks in advance

Then again you could try to re-set the bios to default factory settings and re-boot. pull cmos battery for about 1 minute re-install battery and re-boot. then discuss catastrophic failure.:-)

We call them in the industry Death Stars! I have had several just die on me! If the drive does not show in the BIOS then you can't do a low level format! All the ones that have died on me have burnt out components on there circuit boards. Way to small for me to solder! So they were thrown away!

Do extensive diagnostic tests:

1. Set BIOS to default settings and do not use overclock settings, check.
2. Memory test, download ISO image, burn it onto cd and boot from it.
If memory fails after several hours testing: Replace memory
3. Flash the latest (original)[beta] BIOS version.
4. Connect just one (1) harddisk and test for longer time. *
5. Add second harddisk and test for longer time. *
6. Add third harddisk and test for longer time. *

* If connecting or adding harddisk leads to freezes, exchange that harddisk and retest.

I am trying to download the netflix app on the nintendo wii from the wii shop channel online and I keep getting the error code:204965


There may be a problem with your connection on the Wii. I would try erasing the connection on the Wii and starting over. If that still doesn't work, when is the last time you updated?
The Wii may not be able to use the wireless it has because of the broadcast channel from the router. You would need to go into the routers settings and change the channel to either 1 or 11. The default is usually 6 but that tends to be weak. Retry the connection.

Harddisk not detected in disk management but recognized in bios


Does it show in the devices? If it is, check and see if it is disabled. If not, check the jumper settings on both drives, and check your bios settings.

Hello, My Harddisk is 6months old seagate.It was working fine b4 4-5hrs and now i turned on my computer it says No Bootable Device Detected -- Insert boot disk Press any key.My HDD is also not...


Seems like the harddisk is broken, and it's not really fixable... The good news, however, is that after 6 months the warranty should still be acxtive, so you can send it back to Seagate and get a new one. I hope this answers your question, Yannick.
