Problem with my Hard-Drive?
Posted on 2002-06-14
Just got a new CD-RW yesterday and just this morning my HD started making these weird scraping noises....right now it's pretty quiet like it usually was but like I said just this morning where previously the HD would "crunch" when it was thinking, now it's scraping....sometimes very softly and sometimes a little louder...only when it's processing data.
Does anyone know what this mean?. The people at the store made the new CD-RW the primary slave to the HD, and I recently defragged my disk after not having done so in a long long time. So I was wondering, would could this be?. If it IS my HD dying (which is PRETTY DAMN EARLY IF YOU ASK ME) is there a website where there are sounds of HD's dying so I can figure out whether or not this is a sound that should be concerning me?.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance for any eventual help I might receive
