I have WD500Gb HDD, recently it stopped showing up in my drives where as it lists under device mangaer.

i ran the disk management and it shows as Disk 1 Unknown uninitialized.
when i try to initialize it is throwing unable to initialize Fatal hardware error.

i understodd that the hardware has gone faulty.
how can i figure out which part of the hardware is fault .BIOS or Memory or Processor.
how to retreive the data

My educated guess is that your WD drive is faulty. See if is working on another computer. If it's not, I suggest you contact Western Digital for support.
