External USB hard disk not detected

By vicky08 ·
I have a 120 GB seagate usb hard disk. It is getting detected at my friends computer running XP. I formatted and partitioned it and it is working fine there.
But on my pc running XP, it is not detected either in explorer or disk management. I tried installing XP SP2, but no results. I re installed the OS to no avail. The strange part is when i boot my PC under SLAX linux, it is getting detected by plug and play. I tried all the solutions given in the forums. Nothing is wrong with the USB cable or the hard disk as it works fine under linux.. Can anyone help ?? Thanks in advance.
