Seagate HD head parking and annoying beep - 2012 Thread

2012-06-26, 22:19 PM



I now there is a thread on this issue, but it was over  a year since the last post, and my Disk was not listed.


I am experiencing an annoying beep, even with the sound muted, when the Laptop is idle for a few min.

I am pretty sure it is the same issue has the old thread, when the heads on the drive are parked, the laptop beeps.


I have tested this by using a disk scan tool, .. While the scan is running the beeps stop.


I purchased a T520i with the normal 500GB drive.  I took that drive out, and put in a:


Seagate Momentus XT  ST95005620AS (SATA)


I am running  Windows 7, with all the patches and Lenovo updates ...


I can't seem to find any information on the Seagate site ...


Any Ideas on how to fix this ? (other then tossing out the Seagate disk)
