Question about Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 500 GB SATA Hard Drive
I have a Seagete SATA/300 500gig Harddrive I purchased 7 months ago (at BestBuy). Today, the drive started making strange chirping noises and froze the computer up (it is the secondary drive). The system could not find either hard drives upon reboot. After disconnecting this drive, the computer was able to boot up fine with the main drive. Since I cannot get the system to boot up with this drive attached, I cannot run any diagnostics on it. I am assuming the harddrive is bad. If this is the case, I need to know what my next step is. This drive is under manufactures warranty. I used it for storing video files, so it contains about 270gig of data that I do need recovered. Thanks - Paul
There was a surge of power threw your system you need by an industrial power surge protector for your system now for the harddrive ive found that if you turn over and mount on static bag with box your harddrive should run long enough for you too collect and move data too another drive but never place on metal surface
i had the same problem i had a surge blew my hard drive a friend suggested turn over and then do a dump to another drive
after that i went out and purchased an industrial surge protector cost a pretty penny but has saved my system many times its called a belkin industrial surge protector about 80 dollars cheapies dont close quick enough hope this helped
