How to recover data from Seagate Momentus 7200.4 which is not detected and makes faint beeping noise

I have a 250GB Seagate Momentus 7200.4 hard drive from my laptop which has stopped working for about three months ago. It is not spinning at all and makes repeatedly faint beeping noise when plugged in to any computer. It is not even being detected by the BIOS and computer freezes when plugged in. I have got almost 150GB of critical data stored in it and really want to know what exactly is the problem with my hard drive and if my data is recoverable or not. I live in Bethesda and need recommendation on the best recovery companies nearby.


According to the situation mentioned here there might be any of the two possible damages occurred to your Seagate Momentus 7200.4 hard drive.

  1. Read/Write Heads are not assembled correctly
  2. Spindle Jammed

In both cases, your HD requires a proper examination by a data recovery expert inside a professional Certified Clean Room. If the Read/Write Heads are not parked correctly, multiple try to power up your HD might create resistance between heads and platters – causing further damages to the Heads and the surface area. Some hard drives also create faint beeping noises when the spindle is jammed and not allow the platters to spin.

If your data is really very important then further attempts to fix the problem and providing power to your damaged hard drive is not recommended. Disk Doctors is a well-known firm who provide data recovery services in Bethesda. They have professional clean room facility available and can successfully recover data from hard drives having same issues as yours. To get free diagnosis on your hard drive you may call them at 1.800.347.5377.

I wanted to extend my ultimate gratitude and thanks to you and your team. Not only did your company recover the data quickly and at half the price of other companies, everything was recovered and our office is back on track after the NAS failure. I really appreciate a company doing its business so well as Disk Doctors did; and will definitely sing your praises for all to hear. Excellent customer service all around. Thank you again!

Many special thanks for your support in getting my drive issues handled. I am able to access all the files that were recovered. You guys are great!

I thought I was missing a folder until I realized I was searching under the wrong folder name.
I am happy! We are good and all is well!

Thank you.

What do you do when a power surge destroys your hard drive and you loose hundreds of hours of work, irreplaceable images, and your ability to complete jobs for clients with looming deadlines?  My first instinct was to cry, then scream.  My IT manager tried and failed to recover my data and recommended that I try a disaster recovery service. We went on line and called several companies, and when we reached the Disk Doctors, we knew we had found a company that could help us.  I delivered my toasted hard drive to their Vancouver location late in the afternoon and by 6:30 am the following morning a representative had emailed me with a reassuring message and time line for the work.  The following Friday I received one of the happiest calls of my life. My data had been completely recovered.  I cried and screamed again, this time with joy!  Over the last two days I have been thrilled, delighted, relieved, overjoyed and reassured by the fact that ALL MY DATA is once again accessible. Disk Doctors are now on my top-persons list and I am telling all of my colleagues about their services!!!

Thank you!

My hard drive crashed leaving me without my critical financial information and research that is crucial to my business. After checking various vendors on the Internet, I chose Disk Doctor Labs because of their level of service, and they far exceeded my expectations. Aziz Mirza, the manager of Disk Doctor Labs in Norcross, GA, personally took charge of my account, quickly fixed the problems and returned my restored files within a week on a hard drive that I could return for an account credit. Throughout the process, Disk Doctor Labs kept me informed, responded quickly to my calls and delivered my lost files quickly, efficiently and at an extremely fair price. I recommend them unequivocally.

Thank you!
