What is this noise?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

I've had this noise coming from my HDD every time I've loaded something (games, music, etc)

Is this normal?

I used HDTune to benchmark it and filmed the video while HDTune was doing the access time test.

Weird! It's not really a death click. I don't know enough to offer any real advice but I can point you to this page. It's got a list of "bad" sounds that HDs make from varying manufacturers that usually mean death.

It's none of the above

It's so weird. I think the warranty is out too frown.gif

Yeah, if it's not a fan being weird or GPU coil whine (unlikely since the noise came with HDTune which wouldn't stress the GPU) then I'm outta ideas. Back your stuff up and offer up a prayer to the silicon Gods. o3o

I played the clip a few times and it just sounds like normal random seek noise to me...am I missing something?

That's what I thought, but my 2TB doesn't make that noise.

It also passed SeaTools tests, but still made the noise. The people at Seagate said I could just send it in without any problems, which I did.

Some drives are much louder than others. WD velociraptors are amazing to listen to!
