Hard drive noise


Established Member
My PC is around 12 months old - got two hard drives (500gb ea).
Just recently one of them has started making a whirring noise when the PC is on for any length of time.
Restarting the machine and it will turn off for a period of time, but then start again.

Is it a surefire sign of potential failure? Anything I can do?

Not necessarily, you should try running some drive diagnostic tools on it. They should be available from the drive's manufacturers website.
