I have an old Seagate Barracuda 500gb hard drive that passed away a few years ago. I made a decision to see if I could get it working and put it into a docking station to see what it would do. It was completely dead, no power at all. I actually decided to get a new PCB board and see what happens. I actually haven’t swapped the BIOS yet but installed the newest board to see if it would certainly power up. It powers up and starts spinning, clicks 11 times, and powers down.
My query is would not having the proper BIOS installed cause this particular to happen? It’s been such a long time I can’t remember what it was doing when I stopped using it. I can’t set up the BIOS until next week so I figured I’d request here to see if anyone knows. Thanks for any input!
