A beeping Seagate hard drive gives the fears! The hard drive makes a beeping noise when the computer is turned on, and it doesn’t spin. This somewhere spells doom because important data present in the drive is bound to vanish.

Caution: An abnormal beeping noise from Seagate hard drive indicates that something is wrong with the drive. The hard disk could possibly be failing, or there is physical damage to it. This is why it is important to backup data on a regular basis, or at least when the drive starts behaving oddly. Moreover, since Seagate hard drives don’t have audio speakers, you need to check system documentation for an explanation of beep codes. Also, you need to immediately start backing up data.

The next step is to troubleshoot the beeping noise issue in Seagate internal and / or external drive.

Simple Tests:

  • Check if the SATA / IDE cable is connected properly
  • Try connecting Seagate external drive to another computer. If the same problem occurs, then the drive is damaged and needs to be fixed
  • Check if Seagate hard drive shows up with a yellow caution sign in Device Manager. If yes, then you have to update drivers

Troubleshooting internal Seagate hard drive beeping issue –

  • You have to run SeaTools to determine whether the drive is faulty or malfunctioning. Additionally, use Acoustic Test to spin down ATA / SATA HDD when system is on. This helps to determine whether Seagate drive is making beeping noise, or if it is caused by other device like the fan.
  • If there are no errors, connect the hard disk using only the data cable. If the beep stops, then check for physical installation of the drive.
  • Remove drive from mounting brackets, place it on an insulated surface. If the beeping noise stops now, check the cables for any twisting. Finally, insert gasket washers between mounting brackets and drive screws.

Troubleshooting external Seagate hard drive beeping problem –

When there is power issue in the USB port (i.e. the USB port doesn’t provide enough power), then Seagate external hard drive makes beeping noises.

  • Try to plug-in the external hard drive into USB 3.0 port. If unavailable, then use USB-Y cable which picks up power from 2 USB ports. Otherwise, try USB hub which is powered.
