Windows was failing at installing the drivers for my external HDD, it is a Maxtor one touch III, so I took it apart and extracted the drive. I then connected it to a computer and it could not recongize the drive. The drive sounds fine physically so I am beginning to think that the circuit board may be bad on it.

Here is all the specs I can find about it
Size: 300gb
S/N: 5NF2HZYT
ST3300622A
P/N: 9BD044-326
Firmware: 3.AAK
Data Code: 07053
Site Code: WU

The circuit board is
100368182 Rev A

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Could be many reasons, can't tell exactly unless proper diagnostics are done.
Do you have terminal output?

There is a slim chance that the PCB may have a problem on the IDE interface.

You can buy a replacement PCB for US$30 plus $10 for a firmware transfer:
