What to Do If Computer or Hard Drive Makes Buzzing or Grinding Noise?

What to Do If Computer or Hard Drive Makes Buzzing or Grinding Noise?

What to Do If Computer or Hard Drive Makes Buzzing or Grinding Noise?
computer-over-heating
Sometime when you are working on your laptop or desktop; very random noises start coming from hard drives. Like buzzing noise, grinding noise, or clicking noise coming from hard drives. This can be very irritating and you may start wondering about the reason for the hard drive noise. There may be some other random type of noises coming from your drive.
Clicking Noise from Hard Drive
Head Stuck Noise from Hard Drive
What are the Reasons for Hard Drive Grinding Noise?

There are two possible reasons for grinding noise coming from Hard Drive or the computer. Let’s look at each:

Reason 1: Firstly, the buzzing or grinding noise could be because of the CPU FAN. FAN is embedded to cool down the heated system and prevent overheating damages. There are computers designed to run all the fans simultaneously and at the maximum speed initially. This is to check if the fans are working properly and to remove the accumulated dust. The speed of one fan is not strong enough to remove the dust; hence we need multiple fans to operate simultaneously.

If there is something that obstructs the normal functioning of these fans in the PCs. It could be their blades hitting each other as they do not necessarily spin at an even pace. Therefore, resulting in a grinding noise. If this is the reason, you can easily detect it. It requires you just to open your computer and check the blades of the fans, whether or not they hit each other when in the running mode.

Reason 2: Secondly, it could be the grinding noise from the hard disk. In fact, this indicates something bad or negative, and you should be worried about this. The reason being, severe internal damage is what may follow. To be specific, the grinding noise from the HDD is a symptom of the hard drive failure in the future. This indicates that components in the hard drive have turned faulty.

Effects of Hard Disk Drive Failure

If the HDD in your computer fails, all the data stored on it becomes inaccessible or is lost. This indeed is a big setback. Nothing can be worse than losing access to all your important data. Therefore, you should fix the hard drive grinding noise issue before it leads to complete hard drive failure. A hard drive failure will result in a data loss situation. Even if you have a failed hard disk, you should take the necessary steps to recover the lost or inaccessible HDD data.

Steps Towards Hard Drive Recovery When it Started Making Weird Noise

Now that you are aware of the effects of a hard disk buzzing or grinding noise. Let’s now look at the methods to recover the lost data from hard drive:

1: Backup and restore all your hard drive data – Soon after you detect that the grinding noise is from the hard disk of your computer, the first and foremost step that you should take is getting a backup of all your data. You can take backup on any external or removable media storage. This backup file is of great use to restore data when the hard drive fails.

2: Use Hard Drive Recovery Software – Using quality and proven Hard Drive recovery software is another way to regain all lost data. You can employ this method of using data recovery software in several conditions.e.g.

Deleted data
Lost backup data from an external drive
Corrupted data
Virus-infected data
Note: Data recovery software only works on working hard drive. So you can use DIY software before your hard drive becomes dead due to physical damage.

3: Go for Hard Drive Recovery Service – Another way to recover data from failed hard disk is via professional Hard Drive recovery services from a reputed data recovery service provider. The one that you choose must guarantee that you should get back your complete lost data. Stellar Data Recovery is the professional data recovery service provider in India. We have service Centers spread across the country and caters to all forms of Data Recovery – Hard Drive Recovery, RAID Recovery, Server Recovery, SSD Recovery, File Recovery, Email Recovery, SD Card Recovery etc.

Conclusion

As stated above in the blog, restoring the backup is one of the cheapest and effective ways to recover data during instances of HDD failure. However, if you have a failed backup or do not have the backup at all. You can opt for software in the comfort of your home or office. You can use data recovery software for your Windows and Mac provided your hard disk is detecting. If that is not the case, then contact PC Expert Services for professional assistance.

SONY REPORTEDLY WARNED THAT PS5 SHORTAGES MAY CONTINUE UNTIL 2022

SONY REPORTEDLY WARNED THAT PS5 SHORTAGES MAY CONTINUE UNTIL 2022

Sony is selling a lot of PlayStation 5s, but it may be some time before the console hits its true sales potential. The company has reportedly warned analysts that the PS5 will remain in short supply all the way through 2022, hindering future buyers and its own potential sales, according to a Bloomberg report.

Sony sold 7.8 million units through March 31 and projects it will sell around 14.8 million by the end of its current fiscal year. Sky-high demand means it could sell more, but can’t keep up with supply due to shortages of chips and other components. And like other industries that depend on semiconductors, Sony can’t provide an estimate for when that situation will improve.

“I don’t think demand is calming down this year and even if we secure a lot more devices and produce many more units of the PlayStation 5 next year, our supply wouldn’t be able to catch up with demand,” CFO Hiroki Totoki reportedly told the analysts.

Sony isn’t the only console maker with supply problems, as Nintendo also warned about component shortages last week despite a blockbuster sales quarter. For Sony, the situation isn’t ideal as it can’t to fully capitalize on the successful launch of the PS5 while buyers are still excited. On top of that, with the pandemic rules slowly easing, folks may not be stuck at home with nothing else to do.

Cryptocurrency Miners Are Getting a New Custom 5nm Chip

Cryptocurrency Miners Are Getting a New Custom 5nm Chip

Cryptocurrency Miners Are Getting a New Custom 5nm Chip

Bitmain has placed an order with TSMC for a 5nm part using its latest N5 fabrication process.

Cryptocurrency mining has sparked huge demand for the latest graphics cards, but anyone really serious about mining crypto invests in application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs). These power-hungry compute rigs are designed specifically for the resource-intensive task, and miners are set to get a new, and more efficient 5nm ASIC option courtesy of Bitmain and TSMC.

As Tom’s Hardware reports, China’s Bitmain Technology Holding Company, which claims to hold a 75% share of the global ASIC market, is thought to have placed an order with chipmaker TSMC to take advantage of the company’s N5 fabrication process (5nm). This is the process already being used by Apple for its 5nm A14 chipset found in the latest iPhones, but also for the M1 chip at the heart of the latest Macs.

DigiTimes says production of the new chip is set to start in the third quarter. There’s no details yet on specifically what Bitmain’s chip and subsequent new ASIC model will be capable of, but the company’s existing (and currently sold out) Antminer S19j ASIC achieves a 90TH/s hashrate using its last generation of custom processor. It does draw 3,100 Watts of power, costs over $5,000, and weighs 14.2kg, in order to achieve such a high rate, though.

While news of a new ASIC using the most advanced 5nm fabrication process available might be music to the ears of serious cryptocurrency miners, it’s sure to have device makers worried. Chip manufacturing is already under huge pressure to meet demand, and TSMC is facing a serious water shortage in Taiwan on top of that. Bitmain’s order only adds to the pressure, but TSMC clearly wouldn’t agree to production if it didn’t think it had the spare capacity. Anyone attempting to place new chip orders in the future may end up with a different outcome, though.

Snapchat Announces New Snap Originals and a Creator Marketplace

Snapchat Announces New Snap Originals and a Creator Marketplace

The marketplace will allow creators and businesses to easily work together through advertising and marketing.

Spent lockdown burning through everything video streaming services have to offer? Looking to expand your mind even further? Check out the new slate of Snap Originals, set to debut this year.

“Made-for-mobile shows started on Snapchat,” the company wrote in a blog announcement, boasting a library of more than 128 original series and an impressive Gen Z following.

“Our new slate is a reflection of our community—what they care about, and the stories and personalities they love,” the blog said. “From shining a light on social issues and racial injustice, to honest conversations on mental health, to the impacts of climate change—our shows speak to the issues most important to the Snapchat Generation.”

Look for unscripted stories featuring Megan Thee Stallion (with her celebrity friends and their pets), Charlie and Dixie D’Amelio, and LGBT icon Manny MUA; a bunch of teen docuseries; a futuristic YA drama; and a sketch comedy show starring you.

More content offerings means more monetization opportunities. Enter the Creator Marketplace, where businesses can partner with mobile creators “in a scaled and seamless way.” Opening later this month for all businesses to partner with a select group of AR creators through 2021, the forum will expand next year to include all Snap creators.
“For businesses, this is a new opportunity to leverage the creativity and expertise of Snap creators—who know the Snapchat Generation best—to drive ROI [return on investment] for Snapchat marketing activity,” the blog said. “For creators, it opens the door to greater partnership opportunities with all kinds of brands so that creators can build their own business on Snapchat.”

Database Reveals Over 200K People Involved in Posting Fake Reviews on Amazon

Database Reveals Over 200K People Involved in Posting Fake Reviews on Amazon

Database Reveals Over 200K People Involved in Posting Fake Reviews on Amazon

The data shows third-party Amazon vendors working with customers to reward fake, positive reviews.

Can you trust the reviews that appear for products offered by third-party vendors on Amazon? An open database discovered on Amazon’s servers reveals you can’t, and it poses a big problem for the company.

The cybersecurity experts at SafetyDetectives recently discovered an open AWS ElasticSearch database that contained a “treasure trove” of data related to organized fake reviews on Amazon. The database consisted of over 13 million records and 7GB of data, including direct messages between Amazon vendors and customers who provided fake review scores. In total, over 200,000 people are involved and the evidence points to this being an operation run out of China targeting both the US and Europe.

So how does it work? Amazon vendors involved in the scheme produce a list of products for which they want to generate five-star reviews. Customers sign up to take part, then purchase those items on Amazon and wait a few days after receiving them before posting their review. A message is then sent to the vendor along with a link proving the review is live and details of a PayPal account. The vendor then rewards the customer by refunding the purchase, but allowing the customer to keep the product.

As the refund is handled through PayPal, Amazon has no record of it occurring and therefore it has no reason to question the validity of the review. As far as its system is concerned, a legitimate purchase was made and a review was left in a timely manner. But for other customers considering purchasing the same product, they are unknowingly being deceived.

Amazon does moderate reviews, but the vendors performing this deception are well aware of the process and checks. The database also contained messages where customers are given rules to follow when creating a review. For example, a specific word count must be exceeded and in some cases a video is requested to accompany the text in a bid to make it look real and avoid a red flag from moderators.

Unfortunately for Amazon, and all online vendors for that matter, the fight against fake reviews can only ever be managed rather than solved. But data leaks like this certainly help show how organized the process is and the techniques used to avoid detection, which hopefully helps improve moderation systems.
