    When I turn on my computer I hear a loud ticking noise and nothing happens. The computer will not recognize the hard drive. I even tried attaching it to another computer as a slave drive and it doesn't see it.

Haier dryer makes ticking noise


The ticking noise could be either a piece of the belt hitting as it spins around, it could be something stuck in the drum that is hitting it as it turns too, or it could be the electric motor making the noise. Either way it sounds like you may need to tear it apart to see what's going on.

Go to the power settings and set it to never turn off hard drive...the tick tick noise are the read and write heads working (that's what writes information on the hard drive) which is perfectly normal with an older hard drive....the hang is probably a virus or needs a good cleaning...I recommend advanced system care as a program to clean your hard drive and fix the errors....uninstall any and all programs not needed or unused

This hard drive is faulty. The ticking sound is the read/write head banging back and forth - known as the click of death.

PS3 Clicking noise is associated with the hardware aspect, so that's your starting point it may come from the PS3 fan clicking, so do check out the fan if there's something that might have got stucked in between. Clogs from too much dust or dirt may also cause PS3 clicking sound.

PS3 clicking noise may also come from the hard drive. The hard drive are a bit noisy because of the mechanical parts and moving drive head when reading and storing data. Again, if the noise level is very minimal, there's no worry. PS clicking noise fro the hard drive that becomes too audible may signify that the hard drive is having mechanical problems and may soon broke down. At this point you may want to backup any data you have



I hope this helps you.

A ticking sound could likely mean a hard drive issue. Recommend that you backup data from the hard drive and then perform a disk repair (e.g. CHKDSK from MS DOS command window) to see if there are bad sectors.
