  1. I have a Seagate 3TB (ST3000DM001) that I have had some trouble with. Seatools for DOS (the only versions I have managed to run) claims that it is OK, but according to HD Tune it has 57848 retired sectors. I'm not able to run Seatools for Windows. The disk controller is set to AHCI in BIOS. I have read that the disk shouldn't be in AHCI, but when I change that I'm not able to boot. The disk is still under warranty and I would like to return it, but I'm not sure that the shop will take it back as long as Seatools claims that it is OK. Does anyone have any advice?
  2. I have a Samsung SP1203N IDE hard drive that won't spin up. What I tried so far is the freezer method where I left the drive there for four or five days to no avail; and putting a multimeter on diode mode and testing what I think are TVS diodes on the PCB (model BF41-00076A, the same board as this one) to get the following results: (Hard to read) AE O436, right beside the 4-pin power connector reads .457 in one direction and 1. (no zero next to that) in the other. 428 LEM, center right one in the picture reads .544 and "1." (Also hard to read) 420 1BL3, center left one reads .109 and "1." Does this mean that these diodes, if they are in fact diodes, are not the problem? If so, what could the problem be?
