Ok, I am assuming that this is a drive issue but it could be anything. My system chirps occasionally. I haven't linked iot any particular activity. Sometimes when I click select in a dialog box, sometimes when I access a partition in Windows Explorer, sometimes when I don't seem to be actively doing anything at all. It's not related to drive activity - I've copied large amounts of files, I've burned DVDs, I've partitioned the drive, with no or the same occasional chirps.
Then it came again, my notebook restarts itself, and my hard drive failed after sometime :emotion, so I'm not sure exactly if the chirping was due to the SMS notification or a eminent hardware failure :emotion Inspiron 15 Beeping HDD. I guess its Craig northey and jesse valenzuela issue with all laptops in this design.

Dell Community : Laptops : Laptops General - Read Only : Internal hard drive making beeping noise, laptop won't start up, when diagnostics are run, error cod Internal hard drive making beeping noise, laptop won't start up, when diagnostics are run, error code of is shown. Hi, I am using a Dell Inspiron laptop. A few days ago, I noticed that my laptop has become incredibly slow the system will hang sometimes, and continue as per normal after a while , and this coincided with my laptop beginning to make this weird, sharp beeping sound.
At first I did not pay much attention to it, but later this was joined by several BSODs, and my laptop became even slower games that usually did not lag was now hanging halfway through, and continuing as per normal after a lengthy period of 1 minute or so. I tried to find the origin of the noise, and I think it came from my Internal hard drive sector, and thus decided to open the sector up in hindsight I probably should not have.
After I replaced it, without doing much just doing the usual IT-amateur stuff, wiping it and blowing it a few times , my situation has now worsened to the point that startup takes a much longer time, and finally now it hangs at the "Starting Windows" screen, but without the Windows 7 logo showing, and my screen later turns black.
Any help is appreciated. All forum topics Previous Topic Next Topic. Re: Internal hard drive making beeping noise, laptop won't start up, when diagnostics are run, error code of is shown. Dell Support Resources.

This is as per design. Thank you so much for you reply. It is very frustrating to use laptop when it happens. Maybe its time to transfer ownership from Amazon to Dell in my area and get them to have a look at the problem. I dont know if is there any Dell service center in my country and are they trustworthy? This process takes about business days to complete. Please share the screenshot of the completed form so that I can help to get the transfer process expedited. Vietnam has carry-in service, where you will need to take the system to the service center.
I also have already transfer the ownership. What should I do next? Do I need any document provided by Dell or you to bring to dell support center to change the hard drive?

Noise coming frm brand new DEll Inspiron 15 () - Dell Community
Hi, i purchased recently few days back , Inspiron 15 On startup and during some work it is making chirping noises which gets louder with heavy work n slows to a humm when idle.
It didnt feel at my office but at home its insane, a low chirping sound chrrrr chhhhrrrrrrr cheeee chee chrrrrr chrrrrr. I have checked it is not cming from fan, it is coming from opposite side of fan near speakers. I do not know whether its the processer or a failing hard drive. Kindly help me out I would suggest you to update the BIOS on the computer. Also, please run the diagnostics on the computer by following the steps mentioned in the video below and check if there is any issue with the hardware on your system.
I suspect it is the HDD you are hearing. I doubt its faulty, its just not mounted correctly to minimise noise transmission to the case work a design issue. I hve updated bios and drivers but still there is low chirping coming from HDD i guess. Noise is very subjective. Without hearing it for real its impossible to make a judgement call on whether its acceptable or not. I see that the diagnostics have passed on the system there should be no issue on the computer.
If there is any concern your system it will be covered under the system warranty. Yes, there isnt any issue detected by the diagnostics. I now know that its HDD movement creating this chirping noise. The supplier replaced it with another unit but the issue remains.
I guess its an issue with all laptops in this design. It should be looked into by DELL, as it is annoying issue for those working in a real quiet environment. As compared to this laptop my HP Pavillion notebook core i5, is 5 years old, having GB hard disk but it is real quiet, having a good design I guess.
Anyways thank you for your support and suggestion, I am trying to get used to this noise having no other option as I checked 3 units of the same series same specs and all three had same issue with varying degrees.
However, I would suggest you to go into the BIOS screen F2 during startup and stay for a while to check if issue reoccurs. Hi Ayesha87,. I have checked with our concerned team and there is No known issue with this system and the system is working as per designed.
