View Full Version : Mechanical Drive making ticking noise? G750JX

My disk as it's being written to, with a download.. is making an odd ticking noise.. It'll go... tick tock..... tick tock.... tick tock...

There's around a one second gap, then it tick tocks again..

It sounds like it's turning on for a brief moment, then turning back off.. then doing the same again.

Is it because my download is slow and it's only spinning up the drive to write when needed? I'd rather the drive keep spinning for a good 10 seconds before it stops to spin up again.

This sounds absurd. ':x

1TB Hard Drive 5400 RPM

Download speed 400kbps

Try using quietHDD (https://sites.google.com/site/quiethdd/), used to have this issue myself.
