Hard drive beeping noises


Never heard of a Harddrive beeping before, but I'll take your word for it.

The beeps you hear are BIOS Beep Codes.
The computer's way if telling you something is wrong, and an area to look into for it.

The beeps are a pattern, or Code.
For example; 1 Long beep, a pause; then 3 Short beeps.

One Short beep, pause, Short Beep, pause; and repeating over, and over.

So....................in your own words Eric, tell the jury where you were on the night in question?
Do you have any alibi's?

WHAT? !O_O!

I mean................what is the beep code you hear?

Plus what is the Product Number of the HP desktop computer?
This can be found on the back of the computer, in the white Service Tag.
P/N = Product Number

Post back in a Comment.

WD Myworldbook white strip flashing


The 'blinking' light simply means the unit needs tending to. Once acknowledged, via config, the flashing light will stop. Sometimes your anti-virus program will block you from getting into config. So you might have to turn your AV off.

Sometimes the blinking starts because the drive is over 95% full and sometimes it means one of the drives inside is failing or has died.

Run the WD Discover Tool, go into to "configure", & acknowledge that over 95% of the drive is used if that's the problem. Once you do that, the blinking light will go away & work like it did prior to the blinking light.. If a drive is failing then you might need to RMA it.

The noise you can hear is not a good one, it is a seek error which means the drive is dead, there are companies who can recover the data but it is not cheap.

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.

I assume your new computer has IDE controller on the motherboard.
Yes you can install your old hard drive into your new computer as a Slave hard drive.
If the old hard drive is installed on the 2nd IDE controller and it is the only device on the controller then the jumper and be master or slave, but connect the hard drive at the last connector on the IDE cable.

Hard disk not recognised


When a hard drive makes a clicking noise, it is faulty. The clicking noise is the heads swinging back and forth. This hard drive is dead and the data is lost. If you desperately need to recover your data, there are companies that can recover and copy your data from faulty hard drives BUT it will cost you an arm and a leg for their services.

Red dot and beep


The problem is in most cases the Power Supply given is of too low of Wattage, at 1.5. After some time, it will no longer provide the drive the needed power, thus the red light.

Try another similar power supply of higher Watts (my Maxtor has it at 2.0 watts.

Try getting Higher power Supply from Radio Shack. Store Tech will Help you.

Lastly, inside the enclosure is simply a typical Hard Drive. Remove it and Slave it to your PC.
