Connect the Hard Drive and restart the Computer. If it's not detected then open the Device Manager, click on the View menu and select "Show hidden devices".

Next, click on the plus sign next to the "Disk drives" and uninstall all the devices that you know are not present. Uninstall all the devices listed under the "Storage Volumes" and the "Universal serial bus controllers". Avoid all the reboot prompt until you're done uninstalling all the devices. Also make sure that the Device Manager doesn't have any exclamation mark beside any devices.
After uninstalling all the devices, restart the Computer with the Hard Drive connected.

Hard disk can not detect and giving beep randomly. hard diisk is from seagate and capacity is 80 gb


Hello there..i have experience with same problem like this...there is two problem with hardisk: first with the mechanic platter inside your hardisk ( you can hear noisy sound from inside HDD) 'cause by wrong prosedure when turn off the pc or problem with chipset on hardisk board (you can see the small green pcb board at other side of your hard disk) touch that board...if feel hot yes there is problem.this problem cause by electrical shock from your power supply unit or you not plugin correctly to hdd power socket.

solution for first problem :
send it to nearest seagate 'cause they have all the parts that you need

solution for second problem:
replacle the board with same tipe and size of your hdd..and it will work again and you can safe your data.but if not...nothing you can do it
