My harddisk , seagates replica single PC unable to detect all of the sudden.... it shows that the window unable to install the driver.. hope to find a solution cause all my backup data inside..


Hi t_c_low2005 ,

First of all , please do not panic,

Nothing would happen to your data unless you deleted it intentionally or your hard disk has suffered a hardware damage.

I would recommend you to check if you have an extension wires for USB connected , if yes then remove them and connect the hard disk directly to the USB slots on your motherboard.

This should work fine...:) Hope it helps.

Hi, I have a Toshiba 80GB MK8037GSX 2.5" SATA in


1) have checked bios cannot see hdd mounted.

That is BAD -- the disk-drive could have "died".



2) tried a seagate hdd works fine so connections in laptop seem to be working

That shows that your motherboard is GOOD, but that your disk-drive is BAD.



3) can hear hardrive trying to do something as can hear harddrive usual noise, continous noise for about 5 sec before getting the error message

That is BAD -- the disk-drive is "dying".



4) no rattling or crackling noise from drive apart from the above

That is BAD -- none of the files can be read from your disk.




i have created a ubuntu boot up disk which allows me to access laptop but does shows error when locating hdd,

That is BAD.




once in ubuntu i can access internet but it does not show the windows partition of the harddrive, only shows ubuntu as opearing system, confused.

That is BAD. Only the CD/DVD disk has been mounted -- Ubuntu could not mount the disk-drive.




In regards to ubuntu working does this mean the hdd is ok?

No, it means that your motherboard is working.






and is there anyhting i can try via ubuntu to locate the files?

No. The disk-drive is "dead".




There exist commercial "data recovery" services that can try to repair your device, just long-enough to rescue and copy your files. For example, see: https://services.seagate.com/index.aspx?lng=en-US for a "no data - no charge" guarantee.

WD drive won't work as master when Seagate 80GB drive connected as slave.


Hi,

The jumpers on the Seagate must be set to slave.

otherwise they are conflicting for the Active partion and bootloader.

Problem related Seagate Hard Disk


i also encountered that problem about using seagate. first make sure that theres no loose connection between the MotherB and HardDisk. Or maybe it has a virus or a bad sector.,Try this, if you have another hard disk, try to make the 80gb a slave drive. then format it using windows base process (Right click the drive then FORMAT). or try DEFRAGMENTATION and scandisk for that drive.

Barracuda hard disk 80gb


More than likely, since you say you did a DOS install of the OS, you did not set the FDISK parameters to set your primary drive. Insert the DOS CD you used to format the system. Boot to a DOS prompt and run the FDISK command. It should have an option, I believe it is number 2 or 3 to "Set primary drive". Select your hard disk 0 as this drive and you should be fine at rhat point.
