    @skorpion1298 Yes it will. The disks and head are extremely sensitive to moisture and particles (like dust). Never open a working drive.

    @simon4000dk The hard drives you see in the videos don't make the beeps. What makes the beeps is a small beeper speaker on the motherboard inside the computer. The beeps are "Codes" saying if anything is wrong or one beep usually means it's okay. But certain beep codes means bad RAM, or something about the processor, etc.

    I always wondered why computers made these beep sounds.. Now i know what makes the sound but not why. Do you know why?
