Noisy hard disk on a Laptop

  muscic lover 23:06 21 Mar 2006

I have a Novatech Laptop less than one year old (so if all else fails it can go back!!).

When I start it up it begins to buzz noisily... and doesnt stop until I turn it off again, any ideas why it does this and how can I get it to stop... also am i in danger of losing all my data??

Over to you guys!

More likely to be a noisy fan I would have thought.

PS - to never be in danger of losing all your data, do regular backups.

is it a buzz or a whine as there is a big difference and does the buzz seem to be coming from speakers?

Buzz can be anything

It is most likely a fan, but if it is the hard drive then backup now!

Sadly, if you have a noisy laptop within warranty, there is little you can do but send it back for repair.
