try to change the pin at the back of your hard drive, place it into master if it doesnt work move it to slave, and if doesnt work again. , change your sata or ide cord, and if doesnt work defenitly, your hard drive have a problem.Try to buy a new hard drive . . and your power led is not a problem with that. .:)
Hello my friend, regarding on your problem we have to consider first the different possibilities that cause this hard drives won't work. First try to double check the connector if it is properly connected or the power cable connector that causes no power that eventually give no power to the hard-drive. Another if you can notice the hard-drive, if the power of that device if present then eventually the problem is your hard-drive but if doesn't have a power then their are possibility that the power supply is wrong. My recommendation, if you could fine a technician in your place then better you have to seek assistance in order to help you save your files from lossing it and to check if what are the main reason why this device won't work properly even you tried different computers. In that way, you can save files. Or if that device is under warranty then ship it back to the supplier to have a replacement but make sure that they have to make a back up from all of your data.
Hope this advice helps you from your problem. If you need more assistance just reply to this post.
Try it on a different USB port or on a different computer - is this hard drive powered via a mains cable ? If so is that plugged in and switched on as well ?
Also does the hard drive have an on off switch at the back or on it anywhere that needs turning on ?
Does this hard drive have a firewire port or another way of connecting to it ?
I dont think you lost everything. Do you see any green power lights and do you hear the normal hard drive and fan sounds when booting up ? If you do and still wont boot up to Windows then reboot and keep tapping on F8 to safe mode and select "last known good configuration". You can also perform system restore.
If you dont hear anything at all, no power and you dont see any green power lights then you may have to plug into another known good power outlet. check that your power connections (including the power adaptor) are secured and if on a strip power off and on. If that doesnt work, try another power adaptor. If those doesnt work remove the laptop battery and just plug in the adapter.
If youre concern about your personal files you can always take out the hard drive, piggyback it to another hard drive on a known good PC and retrieve the files.
