If you are happy to look inside then try to determine where the grinding sound comes from. If it is from the hard disk then it will need replacing.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

✔ Best Answer
If you don't wish to open the case on your laptop then download and run from a boot device (CDR) Seatools for DOS. That should determine if you have a hard drive failure. Get Seatools for DOS from the link below, along with instructions.
