New sounds from my 7K60 Travelstar

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View
My replacement 7K60 laptop drive, which is only four months old and was
silent until this week, suddenly produces spinning (not seeking) noise
along the lines of whirr-whirr-whirr, at a frequency of (roughly, from
memory) between 1/Sec or 2/sec.

Is this something to be expected as the drive reaches a "not new"
status, or should I expect the thing to completely fail soon?

Thanks in advance for any info.

Did I really post this here, or is there somebody changing the NG of
some posts (if that's possible?) My intention was to post in Don't know how I did this.

I will repost in the aforementioned NG, as I think it is more
apporpriate.Please ignore this one.
