Hard drive sound

by mira4581 / July 4, 2014 9:40 AM PDT

Hey all, my HP laptop stopped working recently so I got a new one and decided to attempt to recover my hard drive. When I connect it I get this weird sound. I tried looking up on youtube and mine seem to be different from everyone else. Here is the video of the sound ( ). Anyone has any idea what it is? Can it still be recovered? Thanks for the help.

Upon hearing the sound, it seems that there's nothing you can do on your own to recovery anything from that drive.
If you have some irreplaceable data on that drive you may consider sending it to a professional recovery facility. Try to consult or any professional data recovery service around your area for a free evaluation and diagnosis of your case.

Thanks, I'll inquire about data recovery.
