HDD Check...

Is this a SATA drive and did you smell any burn on the HDD's mother board??? Did you try another drive on the same PC same connector etc??? If you did try another drive on the same PC with the same connector etc and the problem still exist... I would have to say the problem most likely will be the power supply... You can also try to connect the drive onto another PC to see if it is operational... This will give you a most definite answer where the problem is coming from... Hope this helps...

If the data on the drive is important, it might cost some cash to recover it. It may be possible for a technician to replace the drive electronics with a board that matches exactly, at least for long enough to pull the data off (assuming the actuator or platters themselves are not damaged).
