One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
once you have your computer running
you could run the check disk utility
click start run type cmd then type chkdsk/r/f which will scan for and attempt to repair any bad sectors and automatically fix any corrupt files on your hard drive then defragment your hard drive or
control panel administrive tools,computer management ,disk management right click on your drive select properties click tools you should see click check now click start two boxes automatically fix files and scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors place then a tick in both boxes then select check now,start should schedule this task when restart
hope this helps

I have external hard disk 500g seagate. it dosen't open and disapper not accessible (error performing inpage operation)" message. what do i? it's very important for me.


Hi ahmad1353,

You might be experiencing some problem with the hard drive itself so here's what you can try;

Open command prompt(if your using Windows): Click start -> Run(if your using Windows 7 just type CMD on the start search) type CMD and press Enter.

On the Command Prompt(black screen with a blinking cursor) type the following command;

chkdsk [drive:] /F - wherein [drive] is the drive letter for you Seagate external hard drive(to check just double clieck MyComputer(Computer for Windows 7) and look for the drive letter. This should scan the external hard drive for any problems and hopefully provide a fix for you to be able to access your files.

Seagate freeagent Go 640 gb not being reconised on my computer can't access important files


Try using a different computer to access the hard drive. If another computer cannot access the hard drive, then most likely the hard drive itself is corrupted, and you need to reformat or replace it.

I have a Seagate Free Agent Desktop External Hard Drive. I cannot get any of my computers to access the drive. I fear the drive has crashed.


get linux puppy and boot the cd while your hard drive is plugged in, if you can mount under puppy linux and see your info choose the info you need and offload onto an external usb, copy the files over, dont move them as if disk is corrupt you could lose info, then reformatt the drive, just to let you know there seems to be alot of hard drive issues with seagate lately

External hard disk not accessible


Usually drive N is for a network, not a drive. However, if you are sure that this is the drive, then you can right click on it and format it. This will erase everything and make it usable again.

(By the way, to test and make sure it is the correct drive, open up "my computer" and you will see all the drives listed. Try unplugging the drive and see if "N" disappears. If it does then plug it back in and format it.)

If you have data on the drive that you do not want to lose, you might be able to recover the information with a data recovery software. Here is a link that I think will be very helpful to you: http://www.roadkil.net/listing.php?Category=1

External drive malfunction


I have 3 of these drives. Once in a while their icons disappear from the screen.
Looking at the computer with Drive Image 8.0 shows the drive name as being corrupted and the only fix I have found so far is to reformat the drive. That loses the stored data. Sometimes deleting corrupted files (made my accessing these drives??) in the C:\Windows\Temp folder gets the drives up again.
I am backing one drive to the other so as to have two backups until I can further determine what is causing the problem.
The symptoms are the same with 4 different computers. The drives are formatted in NTFS and I have not tried FAT format yet.
