Operating System Version: Windows XP SP1
Problem Application Name & Version:
Problem Hardware Make & Model: Seagate Barracuda Serial-ATA 120 GB,
Compucase MIDITOWER CI6919 300 W Black ultrasilent, Intel D865PERL Desktop board
Error Messages:

I have the same problem as Slackar (read topic "Hard drive beeps"), i.e. my serial ATA hard drive makes a beep when I turn on the power, and one beep when I shut the power down. More seriously, at times my hard drive has crashed when running Windows programs that use the hard drive intensely, the hard drive coming to a halt after a series of beeps and ticking sounds. I have listened to the computer after unplugging the serial-ATA cable from the motherboard, and the beep remains when i switch on the power. However, after unplugging the power cable connecting the power supply to the hard drive, the beeps disappear.

I understand from Slacker's forum topic that there could be a problem with the serial-ATA drive being sensitive to recieiving the exact right voltage from the power supply. My Intel Active Monitor program tells me that there can be fluctuations in the voltage delivered. The question is: What can I do about it? Apart from throwing away my brand new serial ATA drive and get a "conventional" ATA hard drive? Or do I have to replace my (also brand new) Compucase miditower?

Thankful for any help,
