A "Beep, Beep, Beep" Noise

I have tried two ways of connecting this HDD & both ways I get the "Beep, Beep, Beep" tone that repeats either 4 or 5 times. Is this HDD shot? Or is there something I'm doing wrong?  I'm new to 2.5" HDD"s.  Please help!!!
Thanks, grandpappyhappy

What does reorder tone mean?


A busy tone (Busy Signal) and a reorder tone are two similar on-off repeating tones that differ in the spped that they beep on and off. Some lay terms for a reorder tone is a Fast Busy tone. Both types of tones use two different frequency tones simultaneously, 480 and 620 Hz, for the beep sound. Busy tones are a half second of tone and a half second of silence, repeated. Today's reorder tone is a quarter second of tone and a quarter second of silence repeated, twice as fast as a busy; a long time ago the cadence was a little different.

How do i make my audiovox walkie talkie stop making a beep noise


In the "settings" there should be an option to turn off "beeps" or "tones" or "notifications", something to that effect.

Digital tone not bringing up repeater


Without knowing the model of radio or the specific repeater you are trying to access, the only things I can suggest are 1) check to make sure your radio is setup for duplex operation, 2) check to make sure the offset is correct for the repeater, 3) make sure you are in tone mode (not tone squelch mode) and that the tone is correct for the repeater, 4) if the repeater is still not coming up, listen for a while to see if others can access it. If you don't hear other traffic on the repeater there is a possibility that it is down.

Other information that would help get you an answer would be the make / model of the radio (you said Vertex but that could also mean Yaesu), and information on the repeater you are accessing (frequency, location, repeater callsign).

One short beep one long beep coming from hard drive


..as i know when HDD start beeping ( internal or portable ) that indicate problem with the Hard Drive (HDD)..so nothing you can do it by your self ..

..if the HDD is under warranty from factory you may take it to the store that you buy or nearest Western Digital distributor to claim the warranty...but if it doesn't in warranty..that's mean a problem why?

because if HDD start beeping like you have, the possibility to make it work again is almost impossible that mean you maybe lost the data that you save in this HDD..

One of my walky talkys(motorola T4500) makes an extra beeping noise whenever i turn it on. This noise also shortens up what people are saying before they finish talking. How do I fix that?


What you might be experiencing is the Talk Confirmation Tone aka Roger Beep. I have looked through the T4500 manual and do not see any instructions for turning it off, just that it is listed as a feature. However, something you might try is holding in the + (plus) button while turning on the radio and see if it disables the feature. This method is used on many of the other TalkAbout models.

If it is not the Roger Beep, it could be a low battery beep. But from your explanation it sounds more like a Roger Beep.

My sony vaio desktop (model vgc-rb60g) powers on then gives a continuous high tone and nothing else. nothing sent to the screen.


I understood your problem.
it's a beep code. That beep code indicates the nature of the problem with your CPU.

these beep codes are different as per manufacturers see the booklet provided with your CPU which shows continuous beep indicating type of problem.

If further cause such a problem then you should remove all connection to HDD and RAM and re-connect it manually.
Thank you for giving me opportunity to solve your problem.

please give me your Ratings!!
