Question about Seagate 120GB 7200 rpm Ultra ATA/100 8-Mbyte IDE HD p/n ST3120026A (ST3120026AB) Hard Drive
The internal fan of this SanMax, purchased April 2007, is making noise. Do I need to replace the fan, run it with the fan off, or replace the drive?
It depends on the noise. It should be still under warranty. You should NEVER operate it without a fan as this is a safety hazard. If it is making a noise like a buzzsaw, it is most likely the bearings of the HD mechanism. If it is making a scraping noise, it's likely the fan. Make use of the warranty if/while you still can!
