My computer wont read my seagate u6 40 GB how to fix it?

Well depending on weather it is the EXTERNAL electronics, or the INTERNAL electronics, you can replace the circuit, board, with a new board from an exactly the same drive may work. But if the fault, is within the HDD's electronics, then the only way to fix that is to send it back to the maker and ask them to recover it, this can be very expensive though.
