I just experienced my third ST3500418AS failure in 3 months. My disks are in RAID10 (1+0) configuration, so I've just been returning the drives, and the RAID rebuilds, but what's going on? I get...

Since you have so often problems, I suggest to take a look at the controller also (firmware etc). If it's possible use another one (in case of independent controller). A good idea is to check for hard disk firmware update from official seagate site.

In case of a problem or clarification or further details needed, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

My seagate sata 500gb barracuda 7200.12 ST3500418AS not booting.and showing black screen.I can`t install windows because no drive is showing .please help.

If your hard drive is an IDE type, the data cable that connects it to the motherboard will be a flat (usually gray colored) cable that has three 40 pin female connectors on it. If it is an 18" cable, the 2 connectors that go to IDE devices (hard drive or CD-ROM) will be spaced about 6" apart at one end of the cable and the connector that connects to the motherboard will be at the far end of the cable. Also, the cable will have a red stripe along one side of it. The stripe is an indicator of where pin # 1 is on the cable.
Since the IDE cable connects to two devices, there has to be a way for the motherboard controller to know what is connected to each connector. This is accomplished by small straps called jumpers on the rear of the IDE devices. The jumper choices are Cable Select (CS), Master (MA), and Slave (SL).
If your hard drive is strapped as master you must connect it to the connector at the end of the cable. ( If there is a second device on the cable it must be strapped as slave.)
If your hard drive is strapped as Cable Select it is usually connected to the end of the cable but any device on the 2nd connector must also be strapped as Cable Select.
Verify that the hard drive is strapped properly and then be sure it is connected to the drive with the red stripe side closest to the hard drive 4 pin power connector.
At the motherboard end, be sure the cable is connected with the red stripe side adjacent to pin 1. A "!" is usually marked on the motherboard next to the pin 1 of the IDE socket.
Verify that a 4 pin power connector is plugged into the connector on your hard drive and be sure it is fully inserted. .
If you have a SATA drive, the connections are easier. Verify that one end of a SATA data cable (usually red in color) is connected to your hard drive and the other to the first available SATA connector on your motherboard.. Then verify that a SATA power cable is connected to the power receptacle on your hard drive.
When you are sure your connections are correct, plug in and as you turn on your PC, hold down the delete key to enter BIOS setup. (On some machines it's the F!, F2 or F10 key).
Once in BIOS setup, first scroll through all the menus and make sure that all on-board IDE and SATA devices show that they are set for ENABLED or Auto (If you see DISABLED, change it to ENABLED.)
Then, press the Enter key to select the first display screen, ususally titled "Standard CMOS Features". Your Hard Drive should be listed under IDE or Sata devices. If it is, follow the on-screen instructions to get to the Boot Menu. If this hard drive is the device that you want to load your operating system from, be sure it is listed as one of the boot choices.
If the CMOS does not see your hard drive, then you need to have the drive and your PC tested by a PC technician to determine what the problem is.
If you have any additional questions contact me by clicking on the "Add a comment" link located under your problem description on FixYa. Also, if you believe that this information was helpful to you, please return to the FixYa website and rate my response to your question.

Set up did not find any hard disk drivers installed on computer

Your notebook has SATA hdd. Got into the bios (keep pressing F2 key on startup) then in the bios screen find HDD and press enter. Select IDE mode. Press f10 to save changes and exit. When this is done install XP.
Alternatively connect external usb floppy drive and unzip sata drivers into that. When booting from xp cd press f6 to load drivers.Follow onscreen instructions to load drivers and continue xp installation.

Major help needed

hi jtiker,

if you have replaced all the parts mentioned above then you will need to reinstall windows as it will try to use drivers from the old windows and create more problems for you.

go to the bios and set it to boot from the dvdrom first then reinstall windows.

your only other choice is to boot in safe mode and try to reinstall the mobo drivers....not recommended though

good luck
