try it on another computer if that dosent work you should reformat your computer but first backup all your data by putting your another internal hardrive on your computer and move all your files you need to the empty hardrive and after that take the hardrive with all your stuff in it off the computer and then reformat the hardrive which the external hardrive does not work on and install a new operating system then put the other hardrive with all your stuff back on your computer and transfer your stuff into the hardrive with a operating system then try the external hardrive
OR you can burn all your stuff into a CD or a DVD OR you can put all your stuff into FlashDrives and then after you reformat the hardrive with an operating system put your stuff back into the computer and after that the external hardrive should work
I doubt that iTunes really moved/reorganized files on your computer.
iTunest may have created its own "Table Of Contents", presenting a "view" of all your files.
Open "My Computer" and open your external hard-drive.
The files should be in "your" order.
Open "My Documents". Open "My Music".
The files should be in "your" order.
If iTunes really did "reorganize" your files, there's no way to "go back", because "Windows System Restore" does not automatically created time-stamped backups of your 'My Documents' folder (nor of any external disk-drive -- where would it put that much data???).
try taking the ram chip out then see if thats the prob by turning on the computer without it if its not, try unhooking the cd drive and then try turning on the computer if thats not it then try unhooking the hard drive and check if thats it one of those should be the problem i had the same prob but i messed with the ram chips and it worked i just took it out started it up and it worked if thats the prob just start it up then shut it down and put the ram chip back in and it should be fine

Here is the link to the Seagate's utility tools:
The links that you are looking for are DiscWizard and SeaTools.
And if you have just lost it, here is a recovery program that you can use:
Try to plug it into more than 1 computer other than your PC. If it works, then the problem is the interface between the hard drive and your computer and if it really doesn't work, you're solution is have it recover by data recovery experts. Here are a few things you need to keep in mind, on taking your first steps in such a situation: Do not open the hard disk and try to repair it on your own. If you're data is really, very valuable, don't use automatic data recovery tools. Before you bring it, wrap the defective units in anti-static envelope if possible, bubble wrap it, and seal package securely.
You also had an option to recover it on your own by using known data recovery software but it's risky compared if you bring it to a data recovery experts. If the problem is within the mechanical parts of a hard drive, there's a possibility that you will not attain a 98% chance of recovery if you do it on your own.
