The hard drive is likely ready to die; you should backup or make an image of the disk so that you won't loose all of your data

My hard drive is making a strange noise when it is used. It sounds like a heartbeat and it occurs in a random time interval. I know it isnot much to start with but i cannot say anything else about it then...


Hi,
Any strange noise like excessive clicking, grinding, some weird sounds etc. actually indicate a failing hard drive.
Failing hard drives often show warning signs of their imminent demise. If you're lucky enough to see or hear one of these signs, stop what you're doing and immediately back up your data. They say prevention is better than cure so if your computer's hard disk is making some strange clicking sounds, BACK UP YOUR DATA IMMEDIATELY (As the drive is not operating smooth and may fail anytime).
After making backup of your important data on CD/DVD or External Drive, you may scan the drive for surface errors, format it and see if it works properly or not. It would be better if you seek professional assistance for examination of the disk.

Hard drives are mostly under warranty for at least one year. Claim warranty, if possible.
Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!

check to see if your ipod is under warranty, if so take it to an apple store.

if i were you i would manually reset your ipod and immediately after you see the apple logo smack hard on its side on a sofa or padded carpet. If you do it right you will hear the hard drive make a weird noise and then make a clicking sound and your ipod should work

You have nothing to loose, the most apple will do for you is offer you a 10% discount off any new ipod (no matter how damaged the ipod)

Ipod shows www.apple.com/support/ipod, makes strange noise


If your iPod is making strange noises, you have a broken hard-drive. They're quite easy to replace though and I'll be able to guide you, if you can source the part.

IPod Errors


Distinct clicking, right? Your hard drive is about to crash completely. Other than the ticking, your problems are probably because the hard drive is not giving out the information it needs to because it can't. You need either a new Hard drive or a new player. once you get it all of you problems should go away.

Internal Hard Drive noise


it only means that your hard drive is experiencing bad sectors and it might become a mechanical problem which eventually the device should be replaced once the hard drive cannot be read or detected anymore. there is no solution to it.. all you have to do is wait.

Weird noise from Acer Aspire 3000


When you open the sound control panel, is the mic muted or turned down? The feedback may have been coming from the built-in microphone?

Hard drive making strange alarm/chiming noise and won't load onto desktop


Listen to your power supply and see if it is making a faint buzzing noise. Try your device with a new power supply. With a new power supply my drive now runs fine, and was not corrupted.
