Question about Seagate Barracuda 7200.7 ST380011A 80 GB Hard Drive
You may be able to get the data off of it. You'll need another computer with an IDE port and a hard disk big enough to take any data that you may be able to recover off of your old drive -- hook your dead hard disk up to it as slave ( you can see how to configure your drive as slave here )
Put the old disk in the freezer overnight and then put an ice pack on it (put a towel in between so it doesn't condensate and get the hard disk wet) to keep it cool while you try to get the data off of it.
Be sure NOT to touch the circuit board that is on the bottom of the old hard disk to anything metal or you might short it out. If the computer recognizes the old hard disk; you're in luck, copy the data off to the new computer's internal hard disk as fast as you can; your old drive may die completely at any time.
