Default Seagate 1.5tb st3150041as 7200.11 hd clicking

Hello
I have a Seagate 1.5tb ST3150041AS 7200.11 hard drive. Every time I boot up my PC the drive clicks exactly 11 times then shuts down BIOS is still detecting the hard drive. The BIOS reconizes the drive as well as the Seagate HD utility software. When I run the hard drive detect utility program ( boot cd and Windows ) it tells me that there is no power to the hard drive. I have tried this in two computers and an external ESATA case with the same results. I am using Windows XP PRO 32 & 64 OS. Windows does not see the drive even though the Seagate utilities does. I have even swapped the circuit board with a brand new Seagate 1.5tb ST3150041AS 7200.11 hard drive withe same results. I sure would appreciate any help with this.
Thank You!

Sounds like the drive is pretty well hosed. If the drive is clicking it's probably not the circuit board that is causing the issues. I've had some luck by putting the drive in the freezer (I know it sounds crazy, but bare with me a moment). You put the drive in a ziploc bag and try and get as much air out as possible (this is to reduce the amount of condensation that gets on the drive). You then put the drive in the freezer for at least 20 minutes. When you take it out and hook it back up you may be able to get the computer to recognize it to get some data off.

There will be no way to permanently fix the drive. You will probably need to RMA it to Seagate. That drive should be new enough to still be under warranty. If you pay $20 Seagte will send you the replacement drive first and then you send them the old one back in the prepaid box. This is nice if you don't have another drive to back up the data to.

Thanks for the help. I tried freezing the drive without any success. After trying so many different things, I finally gave up and sent the drive back to Seagate.

90 TB is only ~2.8 million songs in flac[1], which is only ~228,000 hours of music[1]. At eight hours per day of listening, that'd take about 28,500 days, or 78 years. While the 2007 US life expectancy at birth was 77.9 years overall[2], if you're a white male in the US that makes it to 65 years old, you were expected to live another 17.1 years (up to 82) as of 2006 [3]. So, while it's within the realm of possibility to listen to 89.28 TiB of music, the realistic life expectancy of the components in that system is considerably lower[4] .

Gratitude for the help. I tried chilly the drive without any subsequent achievements. After looking so many different tasks, I finally offered up and thus routed the steer back up into Seagate.
