Seagate Barracuda 1000GB stopped working after computer fail

Fri Sep 13, 2019 5:54 pm

Hello everyone, this is my first post here.

Well, my computer's power supply failed and as result it also made my hard disk to fail. The hard disk is a Seagate Barracuda 1000GB Model ST1000DM003. This happened right when I booted the computer for the first time in the day a few days ago. Later I tried plugging it as the only HDD to an older PC. What I got was being stuck in a black screen with non-stop beeping and an intermittent hyphen, right after the manufacturer screen ended. Then, I tried plugging this hard disk to a dock station but it didn't get detected. When I turned the dock station on, the hard drive would produce some mild "working" sound, no estridencies, but after some seconds, I heard some click and this "working" sound would end. Here's a video of it btw (excuse the watermark, just noticed it covers some of my comments):

Well, what's your veredict of the situation? I mainly would like to know if I can test something that could potentially fix it (maybe firmware-related?) before having to leave it in professional hands.

Hello, this terminal log is obtained from the BIOS? Where do I have to go exactly? Thanks.

you have to connect one like this one to the drive
need a software who can communicate via the USB to TTL like PuTTY
configure the right configurations
power on the drive
and post the log here

Okay, thanks. By buying the linked article would I be ready to go or would I need additional cables? I watched one video in which they try something similar (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bTgIIjaggws) and there's a lot going on there. Would you recommend that one for my case, by the way?

what you have saw is N adapter for a few HDDs (brands, (and a machine speaking LOL))
what you need (since you a have only a single drive) is just for one drive (will cost pennies compared to the one u saw)
