This is not a good sound at all i am afraid

If you hear a drive clicking or pinging this could be the worst thing you would hear.
Known as "The Click Of Death"

If the information is mission critical then there are very expensive data recovery places you can send the drive to but this can cost from $400 upward !
NB !
! ! DO NOT PLACE A HARD DRIVE IN A FREEZER ! !
THIS IS VERY OLD ADVICE FOR VERY OLD TYPES OF HARD DRIVES THAT ARE NO LONGER EVEN MADE. A FREEZER CAN CAUSE MORE DAMAGE.

If I keep collecting "frozen hard drives" at the rate i do i will soon have enough to build a small house

When I plug in my western digital TB, computer wont recognize it anymore, it is a macbook,


though very incomplete data abt ur system config..
however, u gotta know, is ur system compatible handling such..
some system needs the hdd controller driver or firmwire at the time of os install..(eg we press n select driver using F6 while in case of winXP*, in such case u need a floppy n floppy drive)..
bring ur ear closer to the hdd n make sure that it does not make any noise (like 'tuk tuk' or 'kirr kirr')..in such case itz probably gone bad n need to b replaced..
in some cases, if more than one hard disk r running, esp in case of PATA, look for jumper settings..(master/slave)..
in some cases, if more than one hard disk r running, esp in case of PATA+SATA, look for bios settings if is in native/compatible/enhanced mode, try fixing as necessary..
if ur nt a professional, contact ur system admin/vendor....

I had a simliar problem. This is how I fixed it in XP;

Remove any attached external devices except the one having the
problem.

Go to:
1. Control Panel
2. Administative Tools
3. Computer Management
4. Under Storage right click on "Disk Mangement"
5. The bad drive should show up as Disk 1 with a black bar across
the top.
6. Right click on the bar.
7.Select " change drive letter and paths " and follow the instructions.
8. If number 7 does not work, go back to the menu and select
"Format". During the FORMAT I believe you will be asked to assign
a drive letter.
9. GOOD LUCK

I acutally had this problem with two different drives. I fixed the first one using the instructions above. But the second drive didn't even show up in Disk Management. I had to return it for a new one.

Not able to open windows


Sounds like a hard Drive problem. A virus actually. The Best thing to do if Safe Mode Failed is the Repair Your system, to do this insert your XP CD and wait until it says 'Press any key to boot CD' Press any key and follow instructions to repair windows. If it works, run a virus scan immediately. If Not, take it itno a computer technitian to look at it if you want the stuff on your Hard Drive, of if you feel you don't care too much just wipe the Hard Drive and Re-Install Windows XP. just do the same thing as repair but instead follow the instructions for Installing XP and choose either Clear or Erase Hard drive if you don't want the info or choose don't clrear or Erase if you really want stuff from your hard drive, But run a Virus scan Immediately asap.

Hope This Helps
