go to maxtor http://www.maxtor.com/en/support/products/ata/desktop/diamondmax_d540x-4k/

Maxtor puts out a good drive diagnostic untility called powermax. the latest version is 3.04. I would run this it will give you a better idea of what exactly is going on with your drive.
Good luck.

I bet your hdd have a failure on the electronic logic card, so you have to look for another disk identically to yours and switch the boards, and recover the data. Once you do this, you may try to freeze your card, then washit wiht soap and brush, and dry it with a blower, then reinstall it, some times it hepls.
