Question about Seagate Barracuda 7200.8 200 GB Hard Drive
Install the Western Digital OS drive as a master with a
slave present and the Seagate drive with no jumpers set as a salve. Turn on the
computer and immediately press the Delete key or press it when prompted to
enter the set up bios. The first screen is the Main BIOS Setup Menu. Do see you
Seagate IDE secondary slave since. If none is displayed on the secondary
slave highlight none in the secondary slave column and press enter.
Press enter to auto detect the drive. If no drive is detected, enter the drive
capacity, cylinder, and head manually. Make sure the PIO and UDMA are both set
to auto. If the above results in no change you may try loading fail-safe
defaults from the exit menu and save and exit. Start windows normally. If you
do not see the drive click on start and select run. Type compmgmt.msc in the Open: pull down
selection and click OK. Click on disk
management and look for the Seagate drive. If you see it right
click on the drive icon and make it basic. Make sure you see an assigned drive
letter or right click on it and assign it a drive letter. The last task is to
download and install Seatools and use the utility to try to repair the drive
from the below link.
Download and install Diskwizard and see if it will recognize the drive for a new install.
I sounds like you drive is defective on the interface which will require service.
You may have tried the above but if none of the above has any positive results the drive is defective.
