Is this a USB device?

Yes, Sorry forgot.

It is being found sometimes as new hardware. i.e. FHD but will not install

Does it appear in Device Manager when connected and powered?

As a question mark, but it will not power up.

Is it mains powered?

Yes, Light is on the mains plug. I have removed both mains and USB plugs from drive and replaced, still no joy.

Is the power light on the hard drive on?

OK, either the power supply has failed or the hard drive itself. Can you check with a meter if there is an output from the power supply?
I don't think the hard drive requires drivers, by the way.
