    OK, you have two problems.

    For the keyboard, either the cable that plugs into the main board is not seated properly, or uou need a new keyboard. Since you did not supply the make and model of the laptop, I can't help you with a part number or price for a replacement. What is the computer make and model, and what country are you in?

    For the hard drive, what do you mean it's not working correctly? What problem are you having?

Hard Drive: Seagate has a downloadable diagnostic program which can help determine the defect. My experience is that once these things fail, it is best to replace. There used to be repair centers where you could send hard drives, but with the low cost of new replacements, it isn't economically feasible. Data recovery is expensive, should you desire that. Google for repair/recovery centers if you want to check out those routes.

Keyboard: It looks like the built-in keyboard is defective. Repair of the original is doubtful. Unless the laptop is old, you might be able to obtain a replacement from the manufacturer. I have replaced a few laptop keyboards in Gateway machines here at the college where I'm employed.

I have a Seagate Barracuda ATAIV model ST340016A 40 Gig HDD. I want to put it in an external enclosed drive so that I can format and wipe the drive. I suspect it has some viruses on it that are bogging it...

You do not need a driver, I suspect the Seagate hard drive may be faulty.
Try conncting your hard drive as a Slave drive in your computer, if the BIOS does not detect the hard drive then the hard drive is faulty.

No format , no partition, this drive is security freeze locked

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive
Test the leads that attach to your ((hard drive from the motherboard)) or replace all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA and the ones that attach from your ((motherboard to hard drive))
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections needs its connections continue its cycle and to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
hope this helps

I have a Seagate 800GB extenal USB hard drive. The port on this hard drive, to which the USB data cable connects, is damaged. Are there any vendors who can repair this port? If not, are there any other...

You can purchase an "empty" disk-drive enclosure, and then "transplant" your current disk-drive into the new case. That should recover 100% of your data.

Take the old enclosure to the computer-store, so that they can sell you a "compatible" new enclosure.

Probably $20 to $40.
