Question about Computers & Internet
Did you have a green light before? Hitachi external drives only use a red light.
Red light stable: Power on
Red light flashing: Data transfer in progress.
As GvvsnrNaveen said, make sure you have done a complete fresh installation of your Operating System, run Windows Update to make sure you are running the latest drivers. Then connect your drive, and see if you can see it in My Computer.

Assuming that you have installed a fresh windows installation after crash, you might not installed the usb drivers.
to make sure that the usb drivers are installed and correct drivers go to controlpanel->system->device manager.
and check in that no yellow icons are present in the usb.
you said that the red light is on. that is power indicator and no data transfer.
green light indicates power and data transfer is on.
check your drivers and try to update or reinstall if the drivers are already present.
CAUTION: before reinstalling or updating see that you uninstall the previous drivers.
