Z560 makes weird high-pitched beep noises at boot! HELP!

I own a lenovo ideapad Z560. It's still under warranty period. About 2 weeks back, I installed a fresh copy of windows. It's been working fine. Except since 2 days, during boot, it gets stuck. Weird high-pitched beep noises come and the hard drive light(the cylinder one) keeps flashing. I have no option but to manually switch off by pressing the power button and then taking my chances again. It usually boots up the second time, but I was wondering what the problem is.


Is it a boot sector virus? or is it a hard drive failure? If so, does my warranty cover hard drive failures?


Thanks Smiley Happy

hey ashaurya97,

hard to say if its a physical issue or whether its a virus; but the warranty does cover hard drive failure.
