  • Troubles with reformatted HDD

    A few hours ago I reformatted the two partitions of a 120GB Hard Drive that had turned to RAW format a couple of months ago. Then, I proceeded to uninstall large games from my C drive and reinstall them on my two new reformatted partitions.

    Here's the problem, after a good defrag run with Diskeeper, I attempt to run the game, and then either my C drive or my two restored partitions make that 'TOCK!' sound, which leads to the total locking-up of my PC and ending up to restart, now I can't play any games at all!

    Does this have to do with the fact that the reformatting may not have scrubbed the drive of everything? Or something else?

    Bleh, forget about this, problem resolved through reformatting everything and reinstalling Windows.

      If it's making a sound that isn't normal, the harddrive might be due for retirement soon.

      - It's who you game with.

        Could also be the disk controller, so be sure you keep backed up. If you get the same symptoms with a different hard disk, it's the controller.
