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!

Its a very old hard disk, few things you can do,

1.. Get into your pc's bios and see if 32bit access is enabled for your disk, if not enable it, reboot.
2.. Goto control panel > device manager , double click on your IDE controller and check had disk status, if is on PIO mode or UDMA , must be at UDMA. Set it if not.

I have a Lacie 1TB Big Disk Extreme. It has recently developed a loud regular whirring noise, that goes on and off every few seconds. What should I do? Thanks! Adrian


The irregular clicking or chunking sound usually indicates that your hard drive is suffering from physical damage. immediately backup your data, your hard disk will die soon.

This problem can be caused by the following:

  • Head Crash
  • Bad Sectors
  • Mechanical Faults

If your hard disk is under warranty then you contact your manufacturer.
Hard disk drive occasionally produces a whirring sound when it searches for a file which is heavily fragmented. This is caused by the spinning platters as the read-write heads zoom back and forth to access the sectors where the data is stored. It is important to distinguish the whirling sound from the clicking sound. This whirring sound can be reduced by periodically defragmenting your hard drive. Defragmenting reorganizes the scattered data on the hard drive to make files and programs run faster. It relocates the commonly accessed files to the beginning of the hard disk where data can load at a faster rate.

back it up immediately, the software on the HD has detected something failing, and it is telling you it is time to back up that drive, and replace the drive, these reports, are usually 100% right.

Failure pridicted on hard disk 2


Immediately back up your drive contents to an external USB hard drive or other device. Buy a new hard drive, install it according to the instructions. Many drive manufacturers include software and directions to copy the complete contents of the old drive to the new drive. Hopefully, you'll be able to get this accomplished before it all comes tumbling down. The fewer times you shut it down and restart it, the better. If the information on the drive is critical, get something like Acronis drive imaging software to "snap" an image of the drive and put it on an external drive. If you haven't burned the restore disks, follow the manufacturer's directions so that, at worst case, you can get it back to factory new condition, which will leave you without your files.
