i am using windows 7 system. and have a seagate st7500320as sata harddrive.

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?

When did you start having the issue?

Have you tried putting in externally?

Different SATA port, different cable, externally all with no luck? You have a dead drive.

There is, you can try one of the data recovery companies like DriveSavers but it will cost you.
