hi,

im using a WD Raptor (SATA) 74GB for my main HD. ive been using it for about 6 months and now im getting a slight ringing sound when i load a program or whenever the drive seeks data. I have never got this sound before.

i know these are loud drives but, this ringing sound doesnt sound right.

anyone else have this sound?

I would make a full backup of everything just in case and then contact the manufacturers website and download a diagnostic tool and also the company who supplied it to see if they would replace it.
