Harddisk buzz and freeze 2-3 seconds

Hi, my internal 1TB harddisk will sometimes buzz and screen freeze for 2-3 seconds when i try to access to the files inside. Then after that, my harddisk will be normal again. Only after like a few hours later, it will buzz again when i try to access again. My friends say it is because i have too many files inside, so the buzz sound is harddisk scanning, but i m not sure is it true. So anyone have any ideas what it really is?

Thanks in advanced

  1. If you are worried, you can test it with the drive manufacturer's diagnostic software. The links are here: http://www.tacktech.com/display.cfm?ttid=287

    If it passes, don't worry about it.
  2. the link given is error
  3. It sounds like bad sectors. BTW the Tacktech link worked for me.
  4. still cant open the link, is there any other drive manufacturer's diagnostic software available?
  5. Which manufacturer?
  6. i think my harddisk is western digital or seagate one
