When a hard drive starts making noise I immediately back it up because it is probably going bad. If yours died it would be very expensive to retrieve your data.

Try the cables. Push them in as far as you possibly can.

I have a Lenovo H430 Desktop & i Got a Seagate 3Tb Internal Hard Drive & i can't get the computer to detect the hard drive & everything i have tried & even Seagate tried nothing wo


hi..there...

why your lenovo H430 Desktop cannot detect your internal Hard Drive Seagate 3 TB ..because your Lenovo only support maximum 2TB Internal Hard Drive..

so the best thing to solve your problem is replace your hard drive and use only maximum 2 TB for your internal hard drive..

that's will make your lenovo works again

Is it an external drive?

If it is, open the external hard drive cover, remove the hard disk inside, and fix it back. Try again and let's see what happens.

If it still does not work, insert the external drive into the computer, feel the hard drive if it spins/vibrate from inside or if it makes a cracking noise.

If it spins/vibrate, it means the hard disk is still working. In that case, you have to get another external drive case/cover.

But if it makes cracking noise, then it means the hard drive is damaged and you need to get another one.

Lastly, if its not an external drive, the same applies because, its still all about hard drive.

I wish you all the best.

Hard drive started making a loud clicking noise


Clicks from a hard drive are never good news. If the disk is still readable I'd STRONGLY advise an immediate backup, starting from the most important files. Unfortunately USB does not support SMART querying of disks - you'd need to extract the HD from the enclosure and connect it directly to a PC to do that - but the disk sync information might have degraded to the point that the disk needs to recalibrate fully. This is usually followed, as the degradation continues, by the disk becoming unreadable.

A more detailed description (albeit understandably a bit biased) is here:

Hi there, seem to have lost my external harddrive on my desk top, and it is making a beeping sound??


Hard drives don't beep. They make a lot of sounds, but no beeps. If the drive is actually making an unusual noise, it has probably gone bad. Clicking would be a bad disk. Any other noise would be a bad controller board. A good shop may be able to slave your drive to another computer to try and save your data. But don't count on it. By the time a drive makes a loud noise, it's usually gone and unrecoverable.
Before spending a lot of money to recover your data, try the external drive on another computer. Maybe the connection USB port has gone bad on the original computer.

HARD DRIVE NOT DETECTED


I would just try and come out straight to you, that your harddrive has very much likely to have crashed. Hard Drives are generally Very Fragile because of the Tiny Read/Write head that is inside.
The moment it drops on the floor it might have got broken. and that is why you are hearing the funny noise...although it will still keep spinning because the voltage is still being supplied onto it, but you might not be able to read or write anything onto it.
Sorry.
Hope this helps.
Goodluck.
