    Hard drive: Head crashing/parking sound


    Hello,


    I have a samsung F3.
    I heard strange sounds, like very loud bangs , some sort of head parking sound but on steroid, more and more i was using windows 10x 64 home and windows 7 on previous use.

    I would like to know if it is normal i could fixed it this way:

    Just by unscrew a bit screws that was tightening the hard drive bay to hard drive,
    I could fix the loud bang problem, after 20 or 30 reboot. sound disappeared.

    next step, maybe it fixed it too for a reason or another:

    In a kubuntu 15.10 live dvd , i used dd command + parameters, to fill with zero my hdd after deleting partition table.:

    "dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sda" (could be a little diferent command)

    And i did a fresh win 10 x64 home install.

    Next one by one :
    chkdsk C:
    chkdsk /f
    chkdsk /r

    There was little errors in ntfs that was fixed.
    Did another chkdsk /r, no errors.

    I tryed to check again smart value with gparted, it was healthy.
    I did a check of all partitions, from kde partition manager and gparted too.
    No errors.
    Testdisk show green gpt / ntfs volumes.

    Ok so, I come back to the fixed problem:

    More amazing thing, about untightening screw, there was big vibrations from hard drive, just after, and those vibrations disappeared.
    My hard drive is silent now.

    Thanks.

    Ps:
    Next is the story behind the HDD failure, anyway i just bought a seagate 2Tb SSHD for now and future use.


    I had to cut house main power to check wiring at a electric socket in my house.
    I first set on off my powersupply (gs600).
    then i pressed off my powersurge device.
    It was turn to cut main power for electricity metter powering all my house.


    What happend when i put power on and switched surge protect and power suply on:

    My motherboard would not post, even without a graphic card (just integrated graphic)
    1 stick of ram, one i5 4670k and z87-plus motherboard.

    Sometime i could see a message: Power surge protect ,
    Other time, i had no post sound or led, even 1 beep.

    I fixed it by letting power, draw from the capacitors on mainboard and powersuply everyday for 10 hours between each reboot attempt.
    I installed again all components inside the pc case,

    I used vacum cleaner inside power supply.
    And tryed to use it everywhere i could on components and motherboard...
    I let the power supply outside of case for three days after pressing few time the power switch just to be sure there was
    less risk for me , but still dangerous i know :'(

    Then next try was buying a new battery for motherboard (3v cr2032)

    One of those steps fixed the no post issue.
    I can press the on off switch on power suply and surge protect, unwire from main socket, reboot, shutdown, doing normal operaions, without a crash.

    Corsair needed first i try with a new motherboard, and asus, needed i call them instead of using email, they couldn't help me because i did all the steps to test why it was not posting at first.

    My seller, asked me to try a new power supply before sending to rma the motherboard...

    Now the problem is fixed, i can't do test anymore to see what was about to fail, i'm a bit sad.


    Thanks again for reading this block of text *Wink

    :)

    Thanks for this very important info to protect the hard drive heads if computer is dropped the AccelerometerSt.exe will park the heads and possibly save the data on your computer.

    Unable to boot HP Pavillion G6

    When your mum's laptop fell. The hard drive inside the laptop must have had experienced a "head crash". Hard drives have physical moving platters. And when your mum's laptop fell, a platter must have had crashed into the read-write head (which reads and
    writes data on the platters of coarse). Windows won't start because it is stored on the hard drive. A hard drive replacement would be the right way to go. Just make sure it is the right size and connection type for your laptop. The amount of hard drive space
    will be up to you. Also, this would require you to know how to access the hard drive. Good luck!

    Yes about hard drive the f3 i got it since 2010 or 2011.
    It ran well with multiple hardware setups till 15-30 days ago.

    I needed more space, just to launch audio cd from my computer instead of puting disk one by one each time,
    and for playing games that can hold more than 50 gb of data each.
    So 2 tb hard drive with 2x 1GB platter, is nice for my usage.

    I found a pack of 3 sata 6 gbs cable from akasa, just in case.

    And last thing, swapping to differents sata slots, when i had the problem, was not helping.
