Welcome to the forum. Short of a bad firmware flash, the drive has probably worn out. It is pretty old. Try removing it from the system, and reinstall in a different Molex connector as well as a different IDE cable. Make sure you set your jumper correctly. After that, try another drive and see what happens. Most likely the drive is toast unless a disc is jammed in there. Try a paper clip in the little hole in the front to get it open and see.
