so I was installing diablo II onto my computer, and the disk drive made a noise like the disk was scrapping against something (in a violently loud fashion). Any idea what that was?

Oh man.. another topic. Boy, don't you have anything better to do?! Lol jk.. Go Link removed and check it out. My disk drive make that noise sometimes too. Pretty sure it's the rotary arm that moves the lazer, grinding against the, like, rail thing. Doesn't make any scratches, just a loud noise. Maybe I'll get to fixing it someday. WHEN I GET SOME SLEEP. :) Night' fo real.

Turn off the computer:

Unplug the computer

Open the side panel

Unplug the HDD molex connector


then power up if the sound is gone then it was the HDD if not it is something else.
(and you need to continue investigating)


Once you determine if the HDD is the culprit then I would RMA with Newegg you only have so much time to do so... you are better changing it out with a new one. Just in case the problem gets worse later and you lose all your data.


there are many reasons that contribute to parts that are "problematic:" shipping and handling, defect in manufacture process


I'm sorry that you are having a problem with the drive...

Unfortunately it happens I received 2 out of 3 parts DOA when building 1 computer...

Good luck
