What's going on?! Please don't tell me it's dying.

It seems to be passing all the SMART tests...Paranoia?

My hard drive made a squealing noise when I had my rig on its side doing its first test run. Once the drive was horizontal again it shut up. Try changing the orientation of your drive, and make sure it actually is your drive and not another part before messing with it.

If you have this one:

Then yes, it is well on its way. I had the same HDD with the same problem and it died within 1/2 a year.

OMG So I got it in...January...although, the squeaking did stop like 4 minutes after the thread was made...



AND, the HD was under full load (LED was solid.)

It shouldn't be doing it, period. Intermittent noises like that are a sign of a failing drive.

I always just smack the side of my computer when my HD makes noise... but on a serious note, it sounds like your HD could be beginning to fail, or it is attached with loose screws.

It's the first time it's done it. Stopped, and hasn't done it since, and again the HD light was solid at the time. My 200GB that was in an HP squeaked when it was doing disk cleanup in XP, the drive has been going for 4 years sine then and has been dropped twice.

It was caseless at the time and JUST started after I was done playing Mass Effect.
