the drive powers up as i can feel the disk spin and there is no clicking sound.
it no longer shows up in my bios.
i have tried changing the sata ports and the cable. there is power going to it and makes the usual warming up noises but nothing else happens and used a seagate diagnostic tool but the hard drive was not found.
it is the only drive i have and have alot of important work saved on it.
is there something i am missing?
