Dell :: Studio 15 7200rpm Seagate HDD Vibration Issue

Apr 28, 2010

I am trying to find out if you guys have the same issue.

I have ST9500420AS Momentous Seagate 7200rpm 500GB HDD. Since day one I am feeling a light vibration in the laptop next to the touchpad. This is not too bad but is very annoying since it is constantly there.

For those who have a 7200 rpm Seegate drive please see if you have this issue. It is noticeable when fan is off.

Dell :: Studio 15 With 500GB Seagate HD Clicking

Nov 8, 2009

So I detailed my experience with the hard drive clicking in my blog post here, and I recorded a video to demonstrate the sounds here. Has anyone else experienced hard drive clicking in their

Dell Studios? This isn't so loud that it's clearly a sign of HD failure, but it's not so quiet that I feel that I can blow it off and not worry about it.

Dell :: Seagate Momentus 7200 Rpm HD In Studio 1557 Vibrates Laptopproven

Nov 21, 2009

I purchased a Dell Studio 15 (1557) about a month ago and as soon as I turned it on I noticed the entire bottom portion of the laptop (where the kybd and mousepad are) 'vibrated' - enough so that I called Tech Support for help. At first I thought it must be a bad fan, but after we ran through the Diagnostics and tried different fan settings, the vibration stayed. it wasnt until we put the HD to sleep temporarily that the vibration went away..

Tech Support said it was a bad drive so I had to send my laptop away for 2+ weeks (wow!). I eventually got my laptop back with a new HD installed - the exact same model - a Seagate Momentus 7200 rpm. Im not sure how the repair depot determined the laptop was fixed, because the vibration was still there.They also gave me my old HD back so I could grab any data - so I tried my old HD again to make sure there wasnt a mixup. Sure enough, both the Seagatedrives Vibrated.........................

Dell :: XPS M1710 DVD-RW Drive Vibration

Sep 9, 2007

Whenever my DVD-drive does any form of reading, it vibrates very... very... hard creating this really irritating sound along with it. The drive vibrates so hard that my entire desk shakes and I can feel it even when I work from the other end of my table.

It's especially annoying when I'm actually using my laptop keyboard and not my external as the vibrations are so strong, my hands get numb after a few minutes.

It's actually barely noticeable when I'm playing games because the drive usually only reads the CD for the initial load-up. But when I'm playing a music CD and the drive is reading constantly, it'll be like 2 hours of constant vibration -_-.

I've already gotten this DVD-drive replaced twice, and every single time, it does the same thing. Also, if it matters, I've had to get my motherboard replaced once XD. So even though the mobo + DVD-drive is brand-spanking new, I still get the same problem.

So if anyone could help me fix this problem, that would be great. And another question just to help me to stop worrying . Will the extremely strong vibrations damage any inner components of the laptop over time? I'm not exaggerating about the strength of the vibrations, they actually are that strong , so if its a possibility that it will cause any damage, I think I'll refrain from playing music CD's on my laptop -_-.

Dell :: Fellow 1558 Owners, How Is Your Hard Drive Vibration?

Feb 21, 2010

So I got my dell 1558 a week back and I love everything about it. Except for the annoying hard drive vibration I can feel to the left of the touchpad, a bit on the touchpad and the left side of the keyboard.

Initially, my research said it was an issue with the Seagate 7200s, so I got a WD Scorpio Blue 5400RPM, Cloned my existing hard drive and used that. After re-seating it again, the vibration had become less but still noticible.

I also found out that if I applied pressure/weight to the left of the touchpad, the vibration would be gone.

Anyway, I want to know if other Studi 1558 owners are noticing the same issue or not?

Apple :: 7200 Rpm Laptop Drive Vibration

Jan 31, 2009

I was wondering if any apple owners could post if they are using a 7200 rpm drive in their macbook. Does the new aluminum unibody experience vibration from this drive or is it ok. I suppose the macbook pro would also fall under this since its also aluminum.

Im looking for a faster drive but im afraid the whole macbook will shake like crazy spinning up and down.

Dell :: Replacing HDD For M1530, WD Or Seagate?

Mar 17, 2009

So I've decided to upgrade from the 5400RPM WD HDD that came with my M1530 to either of the two:

Seagate Momentus 7200RPM 320GB 16MB Cache

WD Black Scorpio 7200RPM 320GB 16MB Cache

From what I've researched, the Seagate HDD is faster and consumes less power, but I've always been a WD fan and have had multiple reliable products from them. I was wondering if anyone had their own perspective on the HDDs that they upgraded on their M1530.

Dell :: Inspiron 6400 Does Not Recognize New Seagate Momentus 250 GB

Apr 16, 2009

As this HD was often recommended in Internet forums as a replacement for the built-in Fujitsu 60GB, I bought it and tried to make it run today.
Unfortunately, the HD is not recognized.

I used Acronis True Image to copy the contents of the old HD onto the new one, but in Bios only the value for the old HD appears (58GB).

I removed the battery, I tried all kinds of boot-ups to no avail.

Dell :: Upgrading From A 5400rpm Hdd To A 7200rpm Hdd

Jul 10, 2009

I skimped a little on the hard drive when I ordered my xps1640. Since then I have set up raid on my desk top & notice a huge improvement. Since doing that my xps has started to seem very sluggish. Would there be much of a noticeable speed increase taking out my xps 5400rpm hdd & replacing with a 7200rpm hdd?

Dell :: NO 7200RPM On I1720 = On Crack

Sep 19, 2007

I'm trying to grasp this one... but my mind can not wrap around it, so here goes. I just got off the phone with Dell University sales and talked to the rep. Since the i1720 came out in July I have spec'ed and spec'ed and seen that IT DOES NOT COME WITH OR HAVE OFFERED A 7200RPM HD.

I have a e1705, my dad has one, my girlfriend has one, and my uncle has one... all on my recommendation. I have dabbled/worked in the IT industry since I was 10 and I can't believe that this speed RPM is not offered.

5400RPM existed clear back in 1994.

I just bought my GF a 7200RPM 7k200 200GB Hitachi HD with 16mb of cache for her e1705 from NewEgg.

When we ordered all of our e1705's we intentionally ordered them with the cheapest HD's cause we ordered 7k100 7200RPM 100GB Hitachi's from Froogle searches.

Am I the only one that can't wrap his/her mind around this one....

Dell :: Segate 250G 7200RPM -- Gets Too Hot

Jun 20, 2009

I am hating this drive big time.. performance is good, but the heat on left side of the palm rest is unberable. After few mins of placing the palm on left hand rest it is burning my veins... I still feel the burn sensation for long time even after taking the hand out.

All the guys w/ Segate 250G 7200rpm experience the same? I have 2 E6400s, both have same HD, same heat problem. Seems like a bad designed drive... probably have to start looking at SSDs, but damn those too expensive!

Dell :: 320GB 5400RPM Vs. 200GB 7200RPM ...

Feb 23, 2008

I'm looking to spend a little tax money on a HDD upgrade, but I'm just a little curious what everyone else on here thinks about my options and what you would do if it were you?

I can either go with the 320GB Western Digitial SATA300 or a 200GB 7200RPM alternative.

Tom's Hardware has a review of some of the recent additions to the 320 5400RPM Drives and they say the performance is at or above any 7200RPM drives out there.

Dell :: XPS M1530 -Upgraded To 7200rpm Difference..

May 29, 2009

I just upgraded from a WD 5400rpm HDD to a WD scorpio black 7200rpm HDD. Despite reading people saying it makes a noticeable difference...

I have yet to notice any difference in terms of access times and system performance.

Transfer times with my external HDD have decreased but apart from that, it all feels the same.

Maybe I expected too much but I'm kind of disappointed. Is it just me or has anyone else experienced the same

HP/Compaq :: 7200rpm

Feb 7, 2009

I upgraded the hdds in my DV9543 to 7200rpm's. I didn't copy anything onto the new drives I simply installed Vista onto them, after trying several times unsuccessfully to install XP.

The problem is windows doesnt see the 2nd drive when I go to my computer it only shows one of the drives. Has anyone ever experienced this? Anyone know how to fix it?

I tried to do a search but couldn't find anything, I thought I would try here before HP customer service I have asked them a few questions before and it seems to me that they are reading from a script or something and wouldn't be able to help if they didn't have a manual.
