Hard disk crashed - out of the blue! Error screenshot attached

Hi all,

My first post here.

My hard drive crashed some time back! :| It doesn't get detected BIOS whatsoever. It's a 500 GB Seagate disk.

All I did was this:

Returned from work and switched on the desktop.

Windows seemed to boot and was stuck in the welcome screen. After a while I hard restarted my computer and well, the rest is history!! No boot..

Till last night before I shutdown the desktop, my computer has been performing just great - no crashes, no issues, no nothing basically since the day Windows 7 went RTM - yes, I grabbed a copy right on day 1 and Windows 7 has been pretty much a great OS

Here are the error screenshots I captured:

Try to use another SATA port on your motherboard and check the cables, is the HDD operating when the PC is switched on?

No, it isn't. I've currently started windows 7 using another hard disk and the other hard disk (the crashed HD) doesn't get recognized neither in the BIOS nor Disk Management!

The best diagnostic you can do would be to test the drive in another machine; is it recognized with that machine's power supply, motherboard, and SATA cables?

If not, toss the drive, or RMA it if it's under warranty still.
