The drive is defective. that clicking noise is the read head not aligned properly. take the hard drive out of the enclosure and place it in the freezer for about an hour and see if it works long enough to the data off it, but ultimately you will need a new hard drive.

If the removable storage does not have a drive letter or has a drive letter in conflict with another drive, you can assign it a new letter. Right-click the icon of your removable storage drive and click "Change Drive Letter and Paths." Click the "Change" button, then choose a drive letter from the drop-down menu. Select a letter that is near to the end of the alphabet to prevent drive overlap issues. Click "OK" to allow the changes to take place. You should now see the removable storage listed with your other drives on the "My Computer" screen.

What does continuous non stop beeping means?


the beeps are post during post the very first work is done by the ram,all the memory in the ram is first transferred to the hard disk,and remains active untill turned off.

make sure that your RAM and Cmos battery are securely seated

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty

a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and to have and end to function
the beeps are post pre operating system searching for some hardware it could be RAM cd/dvd hard drive or motherboard all of these must have secure connections for the computer to work
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure make sure the connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs all electric current and computer data to travel to and through every working device and have an end to work properly click start right click on my computer so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
hope this helps

Right click MyComputer and select Manage. Look for Storage on the right and select Disk Management. Find your drive and format the partition by right clicking it and selecting Format. Use NTSF, default allocation size then give the drive a letter or name. After that it should show up in MyComputer.

This is a typical hard drive failure scenario, please check if your computer has valid contract if so get your hard drive replaced.

My hard dive beeps when i make a mistake even though I have disabled all of the sounds in the control panel. Mostly happens on Outlook.


The sound is coming from the speaker that is attached to the motherboard.

Sometimes you can disable the speaker by following these steps:
  1. In Control Panel, System, Hardward
  2. In Device Manager click View and click "Show hidden devices"
  3. This should make "Non-Plug and Play Drivers" visible in Device Manager.
  4. Expand Non-Plug and Play Drivers by clicking the plus and double-click Beep.
  5. Within the "Beep properties" window click the Driver tab.
  6. Under the driver tab if you wish to temporarily disable this device click the Stop button. If you wish to permanently disable this device under the Startup Type select Disable.
Please let me know if this solves your problem or if you would like any additional assistance. Thank you.
