My internal hard drive may be defective, how can I test it?
My internal hard disk drive may be defective, how can I test it?
How can I determine if the problem is with my system or with the hard drive?
It is necessary to run the SeaTools, SeaTools Enterprise, or SCSIMax diagnostic before contacting Technical Support 1.800.SEAGATE (1.800.732.4283) on an internal drive that may be defective.
For Seagate or Maxtor (or Quantum) ATA drives:
If this is a Seagate or Maxtor (or Quantum) ATA or SATA drive, please download the SeaTools for DOS diagnostic to test it. If the drive is failing, the tests in SeaTools for DOS will indicate as such.
If the BIOS does not recognize the drive or the drive does not spin please reference Answer ID: 48
The operating system will not recognize a drive that is not formatted and partitioned. If you need help with formatting:
For Seagate SCSI drives:
Please download the SeaTools Enterprise Edition diagnostic.
For Maxtor (or Quantum) SCSI drives:
Please download the SCSIMax diagnostic.
SeaTools, SeaTools Enterprise, and SCSIMax will test your S.M.A.R.T-compliant ATA, SATA, or SCSI disk drive for media defects, perform a read test, physical head test and ensure the hard drive is functioning correctly.
If all the tests pass (no trouble found), the problem remains elsewhere in your system. Reconfirm all settings for hard drive jumpers, cables, and ATA, SATA, or SCSI controllers, and disk operating system. Consult your host controller documentation or system manufacturer for assistance with SCSI termination or ATA / SATA controller capabilities.
