HDD Weird Sound

Recommended Posts

It first happened when I was checking email, and now it's happening while I'm watching a video on the internet. It's like a grinding/scratching sound coming from the HDD. Nothing appears to be wrong with my files when this happens, but I was hoping that I could post my HDD's Speccy report and see if something is bad. Check it out:

As long as it's not continuous grinding sound or knocking noise then you should have anything to worry about.

You might want to consider changing your AMM settings.


If you suspect your hard drive is dying then a bench check test using HD Tune should be able to confirm this.
