Question about Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 500 GB SATA Hard Drive

3 Answers

My Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 500 GB SATA is ticking when its being booted up. I've pulled off the top part of the hard drive, and found the problem. When you have the drive on your desk, with the SATA connection facing you, just below the disk, to the left theirs a black thingy that appears to be loose. When i shake it, thats the ticking i hear when the drive is booting up. Now i wanted to know how i could repair, or replace this part of the disk, so i can save the information i left on it.

Hi there,
I don't think you can fix it because once the case is opened dust inters the paters and turns your hard drive to trash.You may be able to get help at Seagate.

http://www.seagate.com/www/en-us/about/contact_us/ They can recover data but it will cost you.I would chat with them because they offer complimentary support as well. I hope you have some luck but as soon as you opened the back you voided the warranty.Hard drives a are put together in a dust free room called a clean room.ThankYou for choosing FixYa.com.

Hello, there are many recovery services around the world that can do a recovery for you, the bad thing is recovery services are not cheap, if the information you have is very important and you're willing to pay at least 600$ to recover your data, you can get to a business arrangement with any of these "recovery services", google for "data recovery services", the repair option can be done, but you have to use a new hard drive of the same brand and model, you have to have the proper tools to disassemble it and put the disks in the new case, it's not an easy task, you have the choice at the end.
Have a nice day.

That black thingy is the power connector , it cannot be repaired or replaced since it's part of the board of the disk.
If you cannot make it work long enough to recover your files then the only thing you can do is to find out another exact same model of disk and swap its board.

During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS the scroll down to advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to cd,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart
(note after you have loaded the operating system you must go back and change the first boot device to your hard drive)
The BIOS is AMI. Under ADVANCED SETUP:
The options listed for 1st,2nd ,3rd Boot device include:
IDE-0 means Pri master
IDE-1 means Pri slave
IDE-2 means Sec master
IDE-3 means Sec slave

Master/Slave designation is determined by jumpers on IDE drives. Most drives have adequate markings on them to identify these jumper positions. If not marked clearly, you will need the manufacturer's data to determine that designation.
If you are curious about a working system just power-up in set-up mode (usually by depressing (f1-or-f2) during boot-up sequence, your system-bios will display this information for you.

bricked hard drive? Would folling this lead to a full hard drive format or just unbricking a drive like people sat it does?? Also any other ways that might help would be great to know, heres what i'm talking about! "Fixing The Drive NOTE: Commands for you to type are in red boldface. Pay attention to upper & lower case - it is important. Turn on power to the RS232-to-TTL adapter and the hard drive. After a few seconds, Press CTRL+z. You should then see a prompt like this: F3 T> If not, swap TX & RX wires. Access Level 2 (type /2): F3 T>/2 (enter) F3 2> Then spin down the (disconnected) motor: F3 2>Z (enter) Spin Down Complete Elapsed Time 0.147 msecs F3 2> Very carefully, remove the cardstock that you placed between the PCB and the drive head contacts. Carefully replace and tighten the 3 loose screws. I suggest using a small piece of masking tape to help you hold the screws while you put them back in place. Then start the motor: F3 2>U (enter) Spin Up Complete Elapsed Time 7.093 secs F3 2> Next go to Level 1 (type /1): F3 2>/1 (enter) And do a S.M.A.R.T. erase (create S.M.A.R.T. sector): F3 1>N1 (enter) Cycle power to the drive, then do partition regeneration: F3 T>m0,2,2,0,0,0,0,22 (enter) After 15-30 seconds, you should see something like: Max Wr Retries = 00, Max Rd Retries = 00, Max ECC T-Level = 14, Max Certify Rewrite Retries = 00C8 User Partition Format 10% complete, Zone 00, Pass 00, LBA 00004339, ErrCode 00000080, Elapsed Time 0 mins 05 secs User Partition Format Successful - Elapsed Time 0 mins 05 secs Do not turn off drive until you see this message. Once seen, drive can be turned off. Power down everything, place drive back into your computer, and confirm that it's working." Thanks.
