External HDD not detected in Bios and cannot access in W7
This morning I checked my backup disk, aa external Seagate 2 tb ST2000DM001, used for backups and was not able to access it. I did notice that Windows tried to install drivers to some kind of device and the installatrion was unsuccesful. Of course MS does not tell us what kind of devi\ce but I am assuming that it is the Seagate external drive. What have I done so far?
1. Tested the USB connetion. OK
2. Downloaded Device Doctor from Seagate and did a scan. Drive in question not found.
3.The bios does not detect the drive in question.
4. Belarc Advisor lists it, not as a DRIVE but something connected to a USB port.
5. I do not have the installation CD. Can't be sure I ever had one.
6. Restore to a date when it was working. No help.
I need help to steer me in the right direction.
