I'm wiping a work laptop for disposal/donation, I use Active@ Kill Disk to clear the data.
Everything was going smoothly until suddenly the computer/drive made some small chirps/beeps, long and short, randomly. They're not Beep Codes that you'd hear at system startup, this is when the computer is running.
I've never heard a computer do this before I'm worried if this is a sign of hard drive failure?
The computer is pretty old, a Sony VAIO PCG-Z1WA. circa 2004. It's been thru alot, peoples' dropped it or treated it roughly over the years.
I'm pretty sure hard drives don't come with speakers, and outside of Beep Codes/OEM startup sounds between booting into windows there's no other sounds.
