Look, if it doesn't power up anymore it's either a problem with the power supply or the drive itself.
If you have another power supply, try it. Or another drive.
But if not, you'll have to replace one or the other or both....

Well it does power up but then makes a periodic beep sound and doesn't connect to the computer. Since half a dozen people (at least) have the same issue on this forum, I think directly addressing that issue on the FAQ would be appropriate. The FAQ completely misses this case despite implying it has an answer for it.
And I shouldn't have to "buy another drive" to diagnose my problem. If it is a manufacturing oversight or defect then the last thing I want is two of them!

The same problem - you mean the drive is not detecting on multiple PCs?
Yeah, hundreds of thousands of people all over the world have that problem every year. When drives die, they stop being detected.
Sorry, if you've tried all that stuff, it looks like the drive is dead. I can only suggest replacement
