This is normally a sign of a failed drive. You can try sending it to an outside data recovery company for a consult. However, beeping is normally due to "bad heads" on the drive. The drive beeps as a sign of failure.

Hard drive beeps


Then what happens does it restart ? or just wont boot up ?

A bit more information please.


Not sure what you mean by 'when the hard drive beeps
does the hard drive start when you turn the laptop on

(at which point a do the beeps occur a single beep isn't unusual) and it stops when you turn the hard drive off - a beep then would be unusual.


I suspect you don't mean that, & if the laptop is working fine otherwise then I wouldn't worry about it or do you mean something else completely?

make sure the ram modules have secure seatings also check all power and data leads attached from motherboard to hard drive the same will apply for your graphics card


hope this helps

Seagate 2 tb external hard drive beeps and clicks


Hard drives are easily damaged when dropped. The clicking noise is known as "The click of death".
This hard drive cannot be fixed. You need a new one.
If you need to recover data from this hard drive, then there are companies that can recover data from faulty hard drives BUT it will cost you an arm and a leg for their services.

ChMy maxtor hard drive is making beeping noises when connected to my computer. It does not come up at all, it does beeps and stays beeping. Any suggestions?


step 1
Check the power to the hard drive also check all the connections on the hard drive .


Step 2
you need to get Spinrite HARD DRIVE DIAGNOSTICS and burn it to a CD and boot into BOS to run the CD and check the hard drive for errors, The beeps mean that the hard drive has a big problem.

if the problem is still there let me know.

Beeping, not showing on computer


Its beeping because its damaged! sad to say but the beeping is an error code! the other downside is hard drives are hard to repair so you may need to buy a new one.
