My hard drive is making a strange noise when it is used. It sounds like a heartbeat and it occurs in a random time interval. I know it isnot much to start with but i cannot say anything else about it then...


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!

G tech hard drive not recognized by my macbook pro


Hi Evan
The fact that you have tried all three connectors suggests that the fault lies with the drive. Either the interface board or the HD itself. If you have access
to another computer you should be able to prove it one way or another.
Over the years I have seen many external drives fail (I had two identical drives of my own fail on consecutive days one proved to be the firewire board in the box, the other was the circuit board built into the HD), and it's quite difficult to decide where the fault lies.
Do you hear the HD spinning when it powers up (press your ear against the case)? You should be able to differentiate between the HD and the noise of the fan. Is there any clicking?
Is it still under warranty?
Thinking about it, if you get nothing with the USB and the Firewire then it's a good chance that the HD inside has failed.

When i start the computer it sounds very strange and the computer are very slow


it's hard to figure out the source of that noise by the "strange" word.
if it is like a metallic sound it could be you hard drive failing.. how old is it.. I had to replace mine after 5 years of normal-heavy usage. the slugging or your computer could also be due to the hard drive or it could be lack of maintenance (defragmentation, malware, viruses)

suggestion:
1. if the hd is old. save all your data as soon as possible as your description could mean an inminent hard drive failure in the way.
2. replaced as need.

if hd fairly new (1-2 years with normal usage) do this:
1. save your data in backups
2. download, install, update and run deep scans with at least 5 malware programs.
3. update your antivirus and run a full scan
4. defrag hd.
5. it may be convinient to do check your disk for errors

if the sound is a loud zumming.. undust the inside of your case and clear all vents from dust and gunk, (watch for electromagnetic discharge that could damage your computer if you are going to do it your self.
if the zumming continue, look for source as it may be a failing fan and replace as soon as possible.. fan's keep proper temperature on hardware components and will make them last.

post back with your findings if needed.

Grinding/rubbing noise while driving


Could be the shield rubbing on the tire or could be a loose brake caliper. Get the brake assembly checked.

Simpletech hard drive not working


I have that problem similiar to yours. My simple tech stopped working for like two years so i decided to open up my simple tech and removed my HD away from the old enclosure so I can try building my own external hard drive for the first time. I bought another new 3.5 enclosure, IDE/ATA for the old HD. I put it in the new enclosure and it worked!

It's the only solution you can have. No need to retrieve data or re-format your HD. You can leave it the way you like...if you wanna reformat it...up to you.

The disks inside the HD are not spining. The creaking noise is the HD trying to start. Next time when it does start transfer all the files ASAP cause your drive is about to die.

Computer fails to recognise my external hard drive


I would suggest the external casing of the harddisk that contains its power supply is busted, so you need to change the casing or remive the harddisk from the casing and connect in inside
