Sounds like a problem with the hard drive alright. See if you can boot to a Linux Live CD such as Ubuntu and test if all the rest of your hardware is working correctly. If you can boot successfully to an Ubuntu Live CD then it would prove that the main components of the laptop are still working correctly.

If this is the case, contact the manufacturer of the laptop and see if it is covered by warranty. If not, go to your local PC store with the laptop and ask if they can do anything with the hard drive or provide a replacement.

Help with noise problem


Hi,
Any strange noise like excessive clicking, grinding, some weird sounds etc. actually indicate a failing hard drive.
Failing hard drives often show warning signs of their imminent demise. If you're lucky enough to see or hear one of these signs, stop what you're doing and immediately back up your data. They say prevention is better than cure so if your computer's hard disk is making some strange clicking sounds, BACK UP YOUR DATA IMMEDIATELY (As the drive is not operating smooth and may fail anytime).
After making backup of your important data on CD/DVD or External Drive, you may scan the drive for surface errors, format it and see if it works properly or not. It would be better if you seek professional assistance for examination of the disk.

Hard drives are mostly under warranty for at least one year. Claim warranty, if possible.

Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!

I have 1998 Infinti Q45t 4.1L V8, It has 202,750 still runs great except you can hear little knocking sound when idling. Is that bad if you hav knocking sound from engine?? So do you think that we can fix...


a knocking sound in an engine is never good. with a high mileage engine things start to get worn. so bearing clearances get larger and things begin to knock and rattle. i would try running a higher viscosity oil than is recommended it might help with the knock. but truthfully it probably needs to be rebuild or a whole new motor installed

I'm getting this knocking sound in the front passenger side of my


This is a symptom of a failing constant velocity joint. This is the "universal" joint on the front driveshaft which couples to the wheels and is usually covered with a flexible rubber boot. You may find the boot is cracked or torn allowing grit and water to get into the mechanism causing it to fail.

An solid sound is hearing in the engine when the same is running.


Like a knock,knock,knock solid sound? Have your oil chk'd for signs of a failed rod bearing. It will have to be drained cause metal eill settle. Is it there hot or cold?

Put dryer belt back on, correctly


Rick,

It sounds like you are having a problem with the tensioner for the dryer belt - when this device starts to fail, it can sometimes be lubricated with oil and last a little while longer, but will usually need to be replaced. The squealing you hear is a dry bearing for the tensioner pulley. While you're in there, also look aroud and listen if you hear any strange noises coming from the other spots. There could also be issues with the dryer support rollers or support guides.

I am asuming the belt is ok and the drive motor is working properly.

Hello looking for some advice on a st3160022ace on a a7n8x-vm


Hi omega_1_80, two things come to mind. I gather you used the data cable from the MSI system when you switched to it. Try connecting a new data cable (80-pin) in your system. Set the bios to Auto for the PATA 160 drive. If the drive still seems funny turn off S.M.A.R.T. See if these suggestions help.

Good luck omega_1_80!

Drive NOT being recognized by WinXP


Put your ear to the drive and verify if it is making any strange low level sounds. Check to make sure the usb connection wasnt affected. YOu wont need a driver as it appears to be hardware related. Either the enclosure or drive may be failing.

Power on problem


You might have a cap that shorts after it heats up causing your problem. The whinning sound you hear sounds like the power supply has a short on it. Usually when this happens though, it doesn't go away until some part such as the horizontal output transistor is replaced. RCA's are notorious for flybacks shorting and then shorting the horizontal output transistor. Your flyback may be shorting intermittently. Strange! Stargazer
