    Are you trying to boot from this hard drive or you plug it in while windows is already running? Is it the hard drive itself beeping or the internal speaker in the computer?

On boot up I can hear the hard drive responding but I dont hear the computer posting and the screen is black.. no errors or anything. Any suggestions?


Reseat the memory and try it again. If it still doesn't work, what do you hear for the hard drive? Does it just whir to a full spin up, or does it chunk n klunk?

Lacie Desktop Hard Disk beeps when connected


No much help I can give, when an hard drive beeps it has motor error or head error, the disk hardwar is faulty, and you are not able to recover anything from the disk.

A safe data recovery can only be performed by specialized companies on a facility called clean room, where dust is completely removed from the room using a vacuum.

The data recovery using this kind of equipment does not cost less than $800.
