I really need some help.  Recently, I had to get my hard drive replaced - I got it replaced at a local computer repair shop, and after a few weeks, it started to randomly make these beeping noises.  I have no idea why, nothing seems to be wrong with the computer, but  those beeping noises are quite bothering.  It happens each day, sometimes once a day, sometimes 5 times a day.]


I recorded the sound, and uploaded it here https://clyp.it/search?type=hashtag&query=Sounds2_final and also added an attachment (wav)


It someone can give me some advise, that would be great.

Sounds like a Clicking Hard Drive Arm.

Does it sound like it is coming from the HardDrive ?

And was this a new Hard Drive fitted or something they had sitting aroung ?


I would take it back to the Local Shop and get them to look at again if it wasnt making the noise before they fitted the Drive.
