Bios not detecting HD

Ginger MijangoGinger Mijango Don't you open thatTrap Door!Registered User regular
Turn off PC last night after using it all day, much like i have for the past few months, as im sure some of you even do.
Turn it on this morning and it won't detect my HD.
The HD works fine, i can hear it/feel it vibrating. ive changed cables/ports etc unplugged and replugged,
Put on the 1.5 jumper, did nothing to help.
I've tried googling to no avail.


500gb Seagate SATA
MB is an Asus P5QL Pro.

Also booting up seems slow, getting up to the post screen seems to take longer than it should

HALP ME!

    Motherboard failure imminent, possibly.

    Other than that ominous prognostication, I'm no help, sadly :(

    it's detecting all the other (1) SATA devices, just tried resetting the bios but to no avail.
    Hope to hell it's not the MB dying.

    Huh. Maybe the hard drive is failing instead, then. This may be better or worse, depending what's on said hard drive.

    What happens if you try swapping the places of the two hard drives?

    the other device is a DVD burner and when swapping the HD remains undetected.

    It doesn't show up in BIOS at all?

    Maybe the hard drive is failing, then.

    That's probably some component of the HDD failing then, not your motherboard.

    You have been hit by a problem with the 7200.11 SATA seagate drives. It is NOT dead and is recoverable:

    http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showtopic=128807

    Follow the instructions there and you can save it yourself (there was a similar thread about this not too long ago). Otherwise, you can send it in to Seagate to have it fixed.

    Wow, that's a pretty serious error.

    Given a choice between soldering and sending to Seagate, I'd pick Seagate...

    you actually don't have to solder anything.

    Yeah, unless you've messed around with components I would send it to Seagate, because if you solder it wrong, game over.

    Fixing it myself seems to be more of a pain than it's worth.
    I'll just fire it off to seagate.

    Thanks for the help.
