Hard drive making noise

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
My hard drive has been making an annoying noise. Like sort of a screech sound. Its been like that for a few weeks now. It happens when I like load a game file or save a game file. My computer never crashes ever even when this happens and my hard drive runs fine.

Run a SMART test and see if it throws any errors. Use CrystalDisk or HDTune.

For CrystalDisk it says it is in Good health and 33 degrees celcius

Then it's all good. If it's bothersome, you could always RMA it.

Don't have a warranty on it i'm sure since it is a spare hard drive I have. Thank you.
