Seagate Barracuda 7200.7 Plus 120 GB... Failed or broken

My computer won't start window. Window logo was open thats all. I installed and ran utility disc that came with the hard drive and said " hard drive failed, contact computer dealer or vendor of the drive for return. I checked seagate website but didn't find anything on how to return the hard drive for fix. When I bought this it was advertised that has five years warranty. Any body please tell me how to fix this problem or how can I return the hard drive to seagate? Thanks in advance.....

The serial number will authenticate a warranty repair. Enter the serial number in the web site where prompted and it will give the date of manufacture and allow you to print a returns label plus there will be some software to download, that will prove a fault or not.

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

SOURCE: computer does not recognize mY SEAGATE BARRACUDA 7200. 11 500 GB

Try using your SEAGATE Hard Disk on another PC , if it works then you have one of these problems,
1. Your USB Port in your PC (Or Laptop) is broken and you have to get another one*
2. You have a software problem (Try reinstalling your OS or scan for viruses).
3. The USB Cable has a problem (get a new one).


(*) some technician can replace your USB port or fix it, or you can buy a "USB Hub"

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.

I am trying to install window xp2 in my system and having seagate 7200.10 barracuda 160 gb but setup works only upto 27% and a problem occer that disk may be damage or check that SCSI is terminated.


Hi,
I've got bad news for you . Your hard drive is damaged for sure and you will need to replace it . It's totaly impossible to install a OS on a damaged drive and at least not recommended .
To retreive data , you will need to disconnect the drive and read it in a external box from a healthy computer .
The chance that the issue would be due to a defect SCSI connection is extremely small .
Regards .

Installing 1tb External Hardrive from Freeagent onto Macbook Pro


I would be tempted to format the drive using the disk utility whch can be found under applications and then utilities once opened choose your drive in the left hand window and on the right hand side click on erase. If you are using the Seagate drive for the Mac only, format it as a Mac OS Extended (journaled) Choose your volume format and name and then erase. Hope this helps.

Windows


I've just installed the same type of hard drive in my PC running win XP and have no problems.. do u know that you need to format the disk before it will show up with the other accessible drives?

what to do is - click start, right click on my computer and go to manage.. then double click on storage, disk management local.. and it should show up here, once you format it your all set..

No need for drivers, windows has them already, it's all generic one's the windows is familiar with..

Hope this helps!
