My HDD not power up
but i feel heat on the HDD board when i connect it to the sata power cable
I checked the board there is no smell of burning
That problem happened immediately when i connected an External SATA power cable to HDD it's not the cable of my PSU it's a cable from another PSU
So what's the problem ???? please help
 
Check TVS diodes.
You funny - that is way above the average consumer knowledge level o_O

Here is some relevant questions in order to be able to provide any help:
  • Full name and model of the hdd ?
  • How old are the drive and how much used (i.e. year of purchase) ?
  • Have it worked before? If yes, how long since it was working?
  • Do you use it as an external drive?
  • If yes (1) - have you ever moved the disk around while powered on (spoiler alert : that tend to kill hdd's) ?
  • If yes or no : Describe exactly how the hdd is connected, what equipment (storage controller and where it gets power from).

I've been to your site before.
FireFox is now throwing up a nastygram about it.
It's not my site. It belongs to "Spildit".

Firefox is misinformed. The warnings are unjustified.

The HDD Oracle hosts software which accesses HDDs at a low level. This triggers false positives in some malware scanners. HDD Guru was also "nastygrammed" by FF recently. Even a harmless JPEG triggered this false warning. The only odd thing I could see in that JPEG was lots of zeros. Virustotal said it was harmless.

Even my harmless personal web space triggers two of the AV scanners:

"when i connected it to sata cable not from the original PSU"

Poof....
PSU cables are NOT universal and interchangeable.
You've burnt out a component on the drive circuit board.

AND doing that with the PC actually running? Not good.
