Question about Seagate Barracuda 7200.7 Plus (ST3120026A) 120 GB Hard Drive
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.

Please try to check with your cmos system if it was detected, if not means your harddrive was absolutely damage.

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

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"

Yes you can just take the hard drive out of the case, can use it with any other case, you can also just put it inside your computer and connect it to the sata cable :)
Heres a case you could use for your drive... Click Here

Dear FixYa team,
Thx for your kind offering to me. I already call my friend to help me here. And he seems already found the solution. The problem was comes from USB cable malfuction, and I think it somehow affect the firmware detection. Gladly he can back up it again with another harddisk, just try to baiting it to make the firmware read. Now I'm still waiting for data recovery only. I'm so sorry that I can't use ur helps now, coz I needed it in hurry. Thx
