My computers hard drive makes a Buzzing noise

My computers hard drive makes an occasional buzzing sound. Some days it makes them some times it does not. My computer is not slowing down since the sounds either. I have pinpointed the noise to the hard drive. When the sound does happen though it's very loud and annoying but the computer is sill able to operate and no error messages.

    Yes I am certain its coming from my hard drive, I opened my computer and disconnected the powercord from my harddrive and turned the computer on, bam no sound , But once I reconnected the Hard drives power cord I got the sound back.



    I have backed up all my data etc. But my computer has not crashed or anything and it's been over a week with these sounds coming on and off.

I would suggest you back up all your data as the hard drive appears to be failing. i presume you are certain it is coming from the hard drive and not a fan ?

Why do I have a strange whirring noise occasionally from my laptop. A sort of buzzing sound. Goes off after about 30 secs but comes back in a few minutes.


Could be either the cooling fan or even your hard drive. I have had hard drives make this noise when they are just about to crash.

My wd 500gb makes a buzzing noise


Either you broke the connector or crashed the head. You could crack the case open, buy a new empty enclosure and see if the drive will work in it. Otherwise if the head is crashed, replace the drive.

Buzzing sound in Acer Aspire 5535


I've come across this before and it turned out to be the soundcard driver. See if there's an updated driver on Acer's website.

Strange buzzing can also be caused by a stuck or damaged key. Does pressing ESC help at all?

Unlikely to be the hard drive. They crunch and grind but don't buzz, unless they're completely knackered, when they can give you a three-tone buzz sound and won't spin up at all.

Hope that helps,
Matt

Acomdata hard drive Model HD320FES-72


Sounds like the drive has seized spindle... Not good news.
Is it buzzing similar to any of these noises: http://datacent.com/hard_drive_sounds.php ?
What you should do is remove the internal drive from the enclosure and connect it directly to the computer. If still buzzing then it's a real mechanical problem...
