For the past one day my Hard disk has been making a strang noice ie. of BUZZZZiiing

it is not that loud so as to be heard in the day but it is definitely not usual to my system.

i mean my hard disk never made such a noice.

Its a Samsung 40 GB Hard Disk..... :shock:

Will this cause any damage in future and is there a curative measure.

Plz help.

Dont take chances better back up ur important data in CDs
Eventhough i feel tht ur HDD is fine only a minute noise is still OK and ur HDD will last for abt minimum for 3 year.
Yes do take care tht u dont Fully format ur HDD
coz i had heard tht quick format dont coz ware & tear of HDD but full format does sometimes
also u can check the following thread for HDD formatting issue

Its not Probably But Definately on its way for a death and Rest In Peace situation coz the same thing happened with my 40 GB PATA Samsung HDD and now i hv purchased a new Seagate 160 GB SATA HDD for Rs.4500/-

Please backup ur Data and Do not spend time in thinking as to wat shud be done to correct ur HDD problem coz the next time u start ur PC, it might not even boot. Im not scaring u brother but jus a alearting signal.

For a curative measure,u can giv it to the Service Center for repair (but that will not help u much) as after 1 year u will face the same problems again.Try it and giv ur best shot. Best of Luck.

NB: As of now my old Samsung 40 GB PATA HDD is used as a Paper weight...... :wink:

Cheers n e-peace...
