My HD just repaired itself?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
No joke guys, my hd was on the verge of dying. It started to whistle, then it started doing the clinking and tinkering, and about a week ago it started doing the click of death. I just said to it "whatever dude, I don't care if you die, I'm doing to replace you with a WD velociraptor." Now my hd doesn't make any sounds what so ever besides loading, did it seriously repair itself or is it just about to die on me as we speak?

rolf that's so funny man lol, good one but laughter aside just do a hard drive diagnostic. Enable SMART in the bios, that will tell you your drives health also. lmao

That's almost just as strange as my TRUE turning on my tv. I deffo don't think it's healthy after those noises you heard though.

But great to hear it's working normally now

it could be its last breath. Your HD is getting so weak, it can't make many more noise. hahahah

my hard drive did that, clicking noises, then it stopped for about 2 months, and finally died.

the platters motor is going bad, bearings probably, when it goes again it aint coming back, my only suggestion is dont turn your computer off to much, and dont let the harddrives power down, or it might not come back
