    Ok here are few things that you need to check. Plug in the Seagate HDD to any USB port of the computer, turn on the go flex seagate and then check for the following things.

    1) Seagate drive is displayed in the BIOS?
    2) Right click on to the My Computer, then go to manage, then disk management, Actions and Rescan Disks. In that check whether the Seagate drive is getting displayed or not?

    in case if it does not gets displayed then try using some different USB cables and see if there is any difference or not.

    Still if nothing works then better show it to the Seagate service center. That would be the last option for you.
