  2. Best answer
    A hard drive making any new noise other than what it normally makes is a sure sign the drive is dying. Back up your data as soon as you can.
  3. whatttttt i just bought it :( like literally last week... does it have anything to do with the game at all? because its consistant on the fact it does it at the start of every new match...
  4. Please tell us what the make and model of your hard drive is, some drives are much noisier than others

    its not a normal noise... its a seagate 1tb http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=744346&CatId=2459
  6. Hard drives are actually much more likely to fail in the first few weeks in my experience. If they survive that then they usually last 10 years or more.

    well this is extremely disappointing. Im running seagates hdd test right now to see if it says its failing or not, apparently the only way they will exchange it is if there test says its failing :/ Thanks for your help guys.
