What spyware software did you run? Do you have the name of the software?

many spyware software available on the internet are actually viruses and malware.

Download the file combofix from the link below and run it on your system. This should remove all viruses and errors on your machine

SOURCE: Weird clicking sounds

Clicking sound on an external hard drive is an indication that it's quiting to work. You mentioned that it's just stopped working, you may need to check the Disk Management of your computer to see if you could still reformat it. To do this, please follow the steps below:

FOR WINDOWS XP AND VISTA:

1. Make sure that the HD is properly connected to the computer.
2. Right-click 'My Computer' or 'Computer' folder and then go to "Manage".
3. Locate and click Disk Management.
4. Then, take note of the drive letters that will appear on the screen.
5. While the Disk Management window is opened, unplug the HD and check which drive letter will disappear.
6. If a drive letter disappears, then that is your external 250GB HD. You may reformat it to make it work again.

NOTE: Reformatting the HD will erase all the files saved in it. You may want to bring your HD in any data recovery center to retrieve the important files. If the HD didn't show up under your Disk Management, then there's nothing that we could do but to bring your HD in to the Data Recovery to save the files.

FOR MACINTOSH OSX:

1. Connect your HD to the computer.
2. Click 'Go' (located near the Apple icon, Finder, File, Edit and View).
3. Select Utilities and then click the Disk Utility Icon.
4. Take note the drive letters and then unplug the HD.

If a drive letter disappears, that's your HD. If nothing disappears, then the computer no longer detecting the HD.

Good luck!

SOURCE: Operating system not found, disk corrupt, strange clicking noise.

I think this problem stems further than just a hard drive issue, yes replacing the HDD works.... for awhile but if you leave it on for any lengthy period it will start up again. In My experience it has anyway. I think this may even be a heat issue as well, Im gonna order another hard drive from newegg and this time Ill run speed-fan along with it and see if that will remedy the problem, if it does i will share My experience here.

I have a swann view security system ,,and something not working cause it only says mode not supported ,,,,, how do you fix this


Have you tried a hammer? Kidding!!! Usually this is a conflict in resolution between the DVR and the TV. You may need to lower the resolution of the TV for the particular input you are using. You may have a 1080P TV and a 720P DVR. Once they match, the issue should be resolved.

Hi, I was watching a movie of my Pininfarina 320GB hard drive and suddenly the movie froze and the hard drive started to make weird noises. I tried resetting it and plugging it back in but it still makes...


Needle? There is no needle.

Your Hard drive just died. It sounds like the bearings just gave out or something else happened to the Platen.

When it makes noises it means something is very very wrong.

I hope you backed up your hard drive. If you didn't you just cost yourself anywhere from $100.00 to $1000.00 for professional data recovery.

Time to buy another hard drive and reinstall your operating system.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

pls rate 4 stars.

Set HDD to master


The internal power supply to the HDD is often suspect in these units. Check you have power on the internal plug to the HDD from the circuit board. if you do not Try fitting an external HDD power supply (£15) this cured my unit which had a similar fault.
Hope this helps - good luck.
