Hi all, i been reading the "read me first" post before but I can not find if it is normal that the hdd makes clicking noises and then stop spinning on 0LBA or BSY state or if that noises comes from another problem. My hdd is a Seagate 7200.11 (ST31500341AS) 1,5 TB and was working fine until the blue screen of death appear and can not boot anymore. Then boot from another hdd and win7 recognizes the drive with the correct model and capacity but shows like if was empty, no acces to my data at all. Before read on internet why that happens I though where a bad sector problem and I attempt to do a chkdsk from win7 on my other working hdd. After some minutes when the hdd starts to clicking I freak out and restart my pc and I notice on the boot screen the firmware was fvck. BIOS recognize the hdd as (ST_M13FQBL) with a 3,86 GB capacity and the clicking noise still there until stops spinning after few seconds on every re boot. My question is if this can be solved with this guide and if that is possible how I must proceed so I can try to do it myself before fvck my hdd even more and have to send it to some recovery data center and waste money. Thank you very much!
Help me please!
