Possible HD Failure? Tags: Hard Drives HD Storage Last response: October 25, 2010 12:40 AM in Storage Share mii7303 October 24, 2010 5:53:05 PM I have a noise that only occures in my computer when a Maxtor hd is running. I want to know if it is my hard drive failing so I put a video on YouTube (here) to see if anyone can identify it. Thanks in advance!
