Usually the beeping sound when powering up the drive is an indication that the drive is damaged.

If you have the SATA power and SATA data cable connected and the drive still isn't working, the drive is bad. Get a replacement.

My hard disk makes a beep sound

If all the conectors are fitted correctly and you still get problems then i would just return it under warranty.
If you have, or can get a spare sata cable it may be worth a try.

How can i fix my seagate HDD,it wont detect in bios boot up..

Make sure it is connected to power and SATA, try a different SATA connector on your motherboard, there are probably 4 different connectors. Also make sure that the SATA controller is set to "NON RAID" mode in bios.
You need to go into BIOS to change these settings, If you don't know how to do it Give me your motherboard details (model no makers name)and I'll write you out a walkthrough to set the bios up properly for your drive

You will have to send it to a data recovery company in order to retrive the data sounds like the circuit board failed therefore the drive is not receiving power.Usually if this board is good you would hear the drive spin up.
Good luck

Seagate SATA 80GB Master Drive and Seagate IDE 80GB Salve Drive


You have to make IDE drive as slave. For this put the jumper to slave in IDE drive. Possibility of CMOS battery is rare, but you can confirm it by checking your system time in BIOS. If system time is ok then there is no problem in CMOS battery and you need not to replace it.

this hard drive is toast and sadly you are half the reason as you never, ever ever open or hit a hard drive.  There are data recovery firms however, they are very expensive.

Change the settings of you IDE drives in your BIOS. Set your secondary boot device to HDD1. Also make sure that your primary HDD is set to master and the secondary HDD is slave. The jumper is found at the back of the hard drive where you connect the power and IDE cables. Try this and post back as to how it went..

IDE Cable with 3 connectors (you have 1 or need to buy 1) :
- blue: conn to motherboard
- black: conn to master HD
- grey: conn to slave HD
Cable (select:) cable will auto detect with most modern HD's from same type (SATA it was i think) and you need to go to you're BIOS, set up cable select for the HD's. Maybe best to set up master first, not both at same time. If you have a SATA and ATA set up the master first, then other. So if SATA is slafe but it in grey connector, otherwise black. For an ATA you might need a converter cable for the power, most motherboards don't have 1.
