I suggested you use NORTON DISK DIAGNOSTICS to repair the MBR(master boot record)the master boot record is bad and you can use winXP bootable nto repair the drive by pressing R after booting is completed.but you need to be able to use DOS prompt before you can do this

Hi I have a Seagate Barracuda ST2000DM001 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache.It runs fine for a bit then it just diconnect itself,so you have to scan for hardware or you have to reboot the system.Is there a fix for...


Test your HDD (Hard Disk Drive): go HERE, click Downloads and download Seagate Seatools for DOS (free). Burn the ISO to a CD, set your 1st boot device = CD drive and reboot with the disk in the drive. When the tester loads, choose the Quick Test in the upper left corner of the screen. It takes 5-10 minutes and will give you a pass or fail. If it tells your that SMART has tripped, or gives a fail notice, your drive is failing. You should have a warranty on that drive with Seagate.
If the drive passes as good, change your data cable. I have seen bad cables cause problems. Also check the power cable.
If you still have problems, enter Administrative Tools\Disk Management. Find your drive, Right click on it, and click "Mark Partition as Active".
If still no joy, try changing the SATA port on the mother board that your drive is plugged in to.
If still no joy, contact Seagate customer help, they are very good.

Motherboard won't boot past cmos


you are pretty much right it may be a corrupt bios, however before we come to a conclusion try isolating both Seagate Barracuda 7200 rpm 80gig ide hard drive and optical drive only and then see if it at least goes past the bios screen, if yes then the bios is ok and just needs to be resetted to defaults. dont expect it to load windows even if it goes past bios check as hard disk which helps to boot to windows would be removed. also in case if you are using 2 ram slots try connecting only 1 ram chip in 1 slot and then see if it goes past the bios test screen. do reply with results. Good luck.

Lags and says has bad sector after 14 months


Good day sir/maam, hi, 14 months is too short for a hard disk operating span, what we do is run the diskmanager software that comes with the seagate hard disk, on the diskmanager menu, run the low level format which usually removes the bad sectored space out of the way, and mark it as not usable. then may I suggest you partition your hard drive to 2, one for windows and the the other for data. call your computer dealer if they have in house techs for service, or get the copy of disk manager for your seagate. Hope this helps, thanks

Boot difficulties Seagat Baracuda 7200, 300 GB


Could have something to do with the IDE being set to master.. It has been known that sometimes the SATA drive will take over as the master.. Try changing the IDE drive to cable select, and see if that helps.. If not, change the SATA to slave.

If that doesn't work, post your motherboard model# along with your bios name/version.. and we'll go from there.

As a side note: When they are connected the way they are now, does the bios show both drives?

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