Question about IBM ThinkPad A21m 2628 Notebook
An A21m thinkpad with OS Win2k I'm playing around with is making an unbearable buzzing sound. It seems to be coming from the A drive area; upper left. Not really sure what I should do. I've removed quite a few files from this thing that were left on it by its previous owner, but I haven't (knowingly) changed any settings. If I open the shell... lord knows what the outcome of my meddling will leave me with. Any suggetions?
Is the sound constant?
Does it start as soon as you turn it on, or only when it's booted all the way up?
It sounds to me like a drive going out. Probably not the A: drive (by that I assume you mean a floppy drive), as those only turn when a disk is inserted. I'd guess it's the hard drive. However, that is only a guess - I can't give you more without more information. Regardless, if you don't feel comfortable opening the case, you'll have to take it to someone who does. Any experienced tech should be able to listen to it, and if it is the hard drive they will know that just from the sound.
