Nope, it does not hum or buzz., no spin try or head movement.
Just like a brick.
Also, I just unmount the logical card and it looks just fine, no visible damage and nothig smells like burn.
Is there anything I can do to bring it back to life?

How old is the drive?
If it's 3+ years old I'd say the mechanics of it are failing, there are 2 bodge things you can try at your own risk, one is to bang it about a bit, not too hard though, this should free of stuck parts, and two, put it in a plastic bag and freeze it for the night.

Is not that old, here is the complete data from the label:
-Barracuda 7200.10 250Gb
-Serial Nº 9RY1PSPE
-Part Nº 9EU132-305
-Datecode 08261 (year 2008?)
I already bang it against the deskstop from 5inch high, in the side of the HDD. I will try to freeze it.
Any other ideas? Why just died!?
Should I try to conect the HDD to the serial port, as shown in many sites?
Is there any low level tool to detect the disc? BIOS can't detect it...

How much does it worth to build all the serial rig? I mean a SATA2 250Gb drive is just about 40USD here, and all the data is allready backed up.
