Question about Seagate Barracuda 7200.7 ST380011A 80 GB Hard Drive

Barracuda hard drive issue

PC won't boot up in any mode. Acts like it's trying but then goes to blue screen. I bought a hard drive enclosure to grab pictures and music from hard drive before putting it into recovery. It spins up in the enclosure but then 1 of 2 things happens. When I try to look at it on my laptop (running Vista Home) it either doesn't show up at all as a listed drive OR when it does and I go to access its' contents I get "disk unreadable/ corrupted". SO now what? Is this particular Barracuda 7200.7 officially dead? I'm seriously frustrated... Thank you for any consideration.

Ok..just check all the cable and then attach the new hard disk..after that if u r getting d same probs thenjust check his hard disk in another system and if its OK then its means that BIOS is not supporting or either the fault is on your power supply.

I have a toshiba satelite L655-s5117 laptop and it won't boot up even when i try and boot from windows 7 disk it won't


Probably a faulty hard drive. go into the setup screen and verify the HD setting is correct. save your settings and reboot. if this doesn't solve it, then take out battery and disconnect power, remove hard drive and reconnect. try reboot. if none of that works, then replace hard drive and reinstall OS.

Motherboard won't boot past cmos


you are pretty much right it may be a corrupt bios, however before we come to a conclusion try isolating both Seagate Barracuda 7200 rpm 80gig ide hard drive and optical drive only and then see if it at least goes past the bios screen, if yes then the bios is ok and just needs to be resetted to defaults. dont expect it to load windows even if it goes past bios check as hard disk which helps to boot to windows would be removed. also in case if you are using 2 ram slots try connecting only 1 ram chip in 1 slot and then see if it goes past the bios test screen. do reply with results. Good luck.

What type of hard disk enclosure wll work for a 40 gig Seagate Barracuda ata IV drive?


I assume you want an external enclosure for this drive. Hard drives are built to standard dimensions and have the same power and data connectors, so any enclosure designed for a 3.5-inch IDE drive would work. Here's one I've bought several of for myself and others, and it's been reliable. There are many more available from many vendors. Just be sure you get one designed for IDE drives or that will take both IDE and SATA. If you get one meant for SATA only, the connectors inside won't fit your drive. Which enclosure you finally choose will depend on which you think is best (based on price, appearance, reviews, or whatever you look for), but any one will work.

Seagate Barracuda 7200.9 SATA driver problem


If the laptop is also XP, the drive should be recognized without problems. Sometimes this may not happen if the disk is unusually partitioned (could happen if you manually dual-booted it with Linux, for example). Verify the enclosure is working properly and has enough power supplied to, and that it appears in Device Manager. If all this applies, the enclosure must be considered working and the problem might be in the partitioning or disk access.

In XP Pro, do Start > Run Command > DISKMGMT.MSC and press OK. See whether the disk appears (if it doesn't, it's the enclosure, or its drivers - or the disk was dying and is now dead, but that's not very likely), select the NTFS or FAT32 partition - ignore any others - right click and mount the unit as drive, say, G.

If it doesn't work but the partition is found, you may need a more powerful tool such as Paragon Partition Manager.
