try a different power supply or cable
check all pibs to the hard drive (if ide) are in properly and that u havent by accent removved the slave/master pin
yes its IDE and no pins are removed also, tries lots of differnet cables and computer
Is it possible to try the hard drive out on another computer? If it doesn't work on that then the hard drive is dead. If it does work then it's most likely to be the connection between the hard drive & the enclosure, but at the hard drive end.
Try using spin right.
