Unusual beeps on all Hard Drives
I hope someone can help me with this problem that Google search couldn't give me answers to:
I own 2 Hard Drives; one is a Seagate (5 years old) and the other is a WD (3 months old). I purchased the WD because I thought Seagate could be failing (And Seagate thinks it's failing)
Starting last year, my Seagate would make random "beep" like noises. I have recorded different clips of the sound into one video on Youtube. Despite the odd sound, I have not gotten any errors, any loss, or any BsoD. All disk checks, utilities, boot from bios, official and unofficial programs said the HDD is 100% fine. I even replaced all my SATA plugs to see if that was the cause. My PSU is new because my old one died (the problem occurred during the old one too).
After talking to Seagate... They didn't seem confident that the HDD could be failing. I went ahead and played it safe by buying the WD. I took out the Seagate and added the WD. A week later, the WD starts making the "beep" sound. Like Seagate, WD passed all tests.
I want to know why are my HDDs making that sound even though my computer is 100% working fine. My computer is a built. I'm 100% sure the sounds are from the HDD. I disconnected most of the parts to see if the sounds continue. They stop when I disconnect both HDD. Should I not worry about it since both HDD are working fine? Is there something else that's making them make that noise?
The sounds don't happen continuously, it will do it random. Doesn't matter if it's idled or busy, it will do the sounds when it wants to.
Definitely appreciate the help. It's bugging me!
Is this a good question?
