Hi, your query, "is there a way to fix it?" if you intend to use if again normally, afraid no way; if you want to recover/retrieve important data/files, probably: 1. seal the drive in a sandwhich ziplock plastic bag, leave it in your freezer overnight, install as a secondary master in another PC, autodetect in CMOS, if detected, boot to your OS, copy whatever you can real quick, soon as it reaches ambient temp chances are it will no longer be readable again; or 2. assuming it is an electronic problem, using a torx driver remove the pcb, get hold of another hd of same brand & model, borrow the good PCB and tempo use it, again install as secondary master in another PC. if no available 2nd HD at hand, install and while in CMOS autodetect HD, feel around the PCB components and determine which heats up faster than the others, spray it with a contact cleaner, if detected continue to your OS to back it up, continue spraying to maintain lower temp; 3. assuming mechanical problem (though highly unlikely) lightly tap with a small rubber mallet (rubber coated handle of a side cutter will do) bottom of drive and install; 4. assuming an electrical connection problem, reheat the 4 power terminals at the bottom (+, gnd, gnd & +) and/or remove the pcb and check/clean contacts at the back of the PCB and its mate, 2 sets; 5. assuming you can do component level soldering and can use a VOM, check surface mounted fuses on PCB near power connector. All of the above are last resort and are not guaranteed to revive your HD. Most require that you run your unit open with possible risk to electrical shock. If you are not comfortable, it would probably be to your advantage to seek the services of a qualified service professional. Sometimes it work, sometimes not, hope it be of some help to you. Pls post again how things turn up. Good luck and kind regards.

My new Seagate Barracuda 7200 does not

Hi Simlei.
If its a modern, fairly new drive, it should have built-in firmware, without a need for extra drivers.
If you OS is old the OS itself may not be recognizing the drive's 'language', especially if the bus-width differs, ie 16/32/64bit.
As 1 TB is quite recent on SSD's, I guess its new.
My 1 TB Toshiba just plugs into USB and Win Explorer detects it as a storage drive.
Regards, Clive.

Seagate Barracuda 7200.7 ST380011A 80 GB stop working, it would not work properly, keeps freeze up

During the boot process you will see on the screen to press delete to enter setup
Press and hold delete during the boot up process to enter BIOS you can load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults ,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart then
once you have your computer running try uninstalling a few unnecessary programs then click start run type cmd then type chkdsk/r/f which will scan for and attempt to fix any bad sectors and automatically fix any corrupt files on your hard drive then defragment your hard drive
hope this helps
