SSHD MQ01ABD100H sound squeaky to spin down & to the stop

Hello world!

I recently bought a Toshiba SSHD (model MQ01ABD100H) and tried to install it. First thing, I noticed that BIOS of my HP Probook s 4370 could not find the disc, and therefore Windows did not install on it.

I was hoping it was an old BIOS problem without acknowledging a SSHD. OK, I said. Update BIOS! Check! But it did not help. Then, I tried and retried it exchanges with the old drive and then start with Hirens boot.

Hirens boot some utils HDD was unable to read the new SMART SSHD status. Yet once I hoped it was because of beeing SSHD a new design or something like that. Finally I mamanged to partition the drive with one of the utils and then install a new copy of Windows.

But the thing that bothers me is another: the sound of creaking at every spin down (usually to the computer is shut down). Taking my 15 years of experience which is a sing that the drive will not last much longer. OK, I've had enough.

Packed this shit and he returned to the store, citing the above problems and ask for a replacement. And today I got my rear disc. The former. With the Squeak. On paper that accompanies it reads: tested disc. No error found. No sh * t...

Now, I need your advice guys. Before I pick up the phone and send the technician to hell. What noise grinding spin-down? Anyone had similar problems? Should I continue to use the disk and ignore the sound?

Answers appreciated!
Kind regards




It of difficult to say something about this grinding sound.

I had a HARD (common 2.5 SATA) internal drive that makes some pinging, but this did not always appear. From time to time I could notice clicks, but the HARD drive was working normally and I have not noticed any problems.

But of course; in my opinion, everyone could be afraid of these special sounds if it comes from the HARD drive.

I can give you the appropriate recommendation because it is really hard to tell if its a HARD drive failure, or perhaps not you should simply call the service guy and should try to test another HARD disk.

    Yes, Hello.

    I hope someone can help me. Thank you.

    Yes, thanks for the help, but I found a solution that works for me, thanks to KGB999

    If a lot, you have problems with you audio just follow these steps:

    Follow these steps:

    (1) press on [Windows] + [X] on your keyboard and go to Device Manager

    (2) go to the sound, video and game controllers

    3) click IDT High Definition Audio CODEC

    4) click on the driver tab

    5) click put updated driver

    (6) select Browse my computer for driver software

    (7) select Let me pick from a list of device driver on my computer

    (8) select it Audio device high definition

    (9) to read the warning and click Yes if you understand the risk

    (10) restart the computer

    When your computer restarts:

    1) click on the Control of the Volume (speaker) in the bottom right of the taskbar.

    2) click on speakers

    3) click on the enhancements tab

    (4) If you do not know a lot about audio and to help prevent speakers, earphones, ear lesions, click the Equalization of the volume and click settings, and then move the slider to 3/5-4/5 in the direction of Long, then click OK and apply

    5) enjoy its AWESOME.

    BE CAREFUL, the sound of unlocked chip IDT is VERY STRONG, and based on my experience in audio engineering, I wouldn't recommend listening to it more 45% volume without the Equalization of the volume turned on.  I'm listening to a modern CD and without the limiter and compressor, 50% by volume, border level EAR ENDOMMAGEANT level on my helmet.  Also, without the pre-installed, limiter high volume CAN DAMAGE YOUR SPEAKERS.

    A little bit of my solution:

    This solution essentially replaces the IDT pilot with a Microsoft driver.  If you damage your laptop using, your warranty may does not cover repairs, so please, please, please use the limiter or prudent.  On the same note, don't damage you either; hearing loss is very difficult to self-diagnose, because you lose hearing gradually by the loss of sensitivity to higher frequencies.  It is not 'feel' special, just somehow, you notice that you stopped to hear the singing of the birds and leaves rustling a day, in order not to blow your music.

    Finally, I'll probably revisit this solution some time, as I prefer to use the IDT pilot and have my EQ work.  This is possible through the IDT folder in Program Files and hacking essentially parameter files in a text editor, but it is rather tedious and complicated.

  • Options will not spin down...

    In the effect controls panel, my options will not spin down. The triangle moves to the low score, but the options are not displayed. It was working a few minutes ago and I don't see anything that I could do to stop this work! Does anyone know what's not here? Interestingly, the presets twirl down but not the other 4. I thought just restart the program but wanted to know what caused this...

  • Satellite Pro L20 - disk hard keeps spinning down

    Hi, I have recently updated the BIOS on my Toshiba Satellite Pro L20, and I noticed that the disk hard keeps spinning down after about a minute, even while typing or surfing on the internet. I checked the power settings Windows XP and have it put on the desk, with the time 'Disable hard drive' set to 5 minutes when it is plugged and 5 minutes on battery (I always use on the same network). I checked the BIOS settings to see if there is something listed there, but there are no settings for hard disk power management in the BIOS.

    Although the turning down of the hard disk does not affect performance, I fear that it may be to focus on rising constant power drive / descent.
    The new version of BIOS is 25 April 06 Windows Bios Update for Satellite L20 (PSL2X), Satellite Pro L20 (PSL2Y) and Equium L20 (PSL2Z)', or a file 2, 20 - WIN.

    I think that it s nothing unusual that the HARD drive keeps spinning down applies none or BONES need the HARD disk activity.
    In addition, the turning down of the HARD drive has no effect from the bottom on the performance of the HARD disk or over the life of the HARD drive.

    For the record, I did 3 things that help a lot with rotation down.

    1. disable NetBIOS on my different computers

    3 disable Upnp on the reaydnas (I use it)

  • How to slow down the sound from a video clip to the exact time (keyframes) and values?

    How to slow down the sound from a video clip to the exact time (keyframes) and values?

    I used the timewarp, but the sound is not affected.

    It is to be expected. Only the native time remapping affects sound, but given that EI is not an audio processing application, the quality is terrible. You must use the hearing or a similar program.


  • HP EliteBook 8440p: white horizontal lines on the screen who retreat down in the minute

    Hi again. I've already posted about this so there are pictures and a full description of my post a few days ago. In short, when the laptop was arrested or sleep for more than a few hours, it is white horizontal lines on the lower part of the screen that slowly fade completely down. The lines do not appear on an external monitor in dual mode.

    I removed the screen twice now and checked / reinstall connections to the screen and under the keyboard. The problem persists.  I flashed the BIOS a few days ago and the problem persists. The webcam, microphone and WWAN/WLAN are all in perfect condition and the computer works fine apart from this problem of screen work.

    Until I drop the most money on this used laptop that is my only question at this point sounds as strictly a matter of cable/display on the screen? If it's a motherboard problem I would see other problems? If it is the graphics card goes wrong I would see other problems? As I said, the computer works perfectly once it is running.

    Anyone has any useful ideas?


    You can try to connect this unit to an external monitor to check if there is a problem with the motherboard or display

    If the external monitor works fine, then there is no problem with the motherboard, only the display panel needs replacement.

    If the problem persists in the external monitor, suggest you to update the graphics drivers and see if the problem resolves

    I hope this helps

  • What is the banner that comes down from the top of good windows support for?

    Whenever I scroll down to read a page on the Apple forums, a banner comes down from the top of the window. The banner has the question on what started the thread.

    I don't see any use it serves unless you have a VERY short attention span. It's boring and covers a text (reduces the size of the window), so it's worse then 'not useful' - it is harmful.

    Yes, I see the 'X' which I can click to close the banner - but is it possible that I can turn off this feature altogether?

    Turn it off, no.. Guests sometimes read the posts here and see if all goes well your comment.

  • I dropped my iPhone face down on the concrete

    DDo, I have need of a new phone or can it be repaired? I dropped my iPhone 5, OS7.1.2, face-down on the concrete and now it does not illuminate screen is gray and cannot see all of the icons, as applications.

    Have you ever tried to force the reboot by holding down the button sleep and home for 10 seconds, until the return of the Apple logo again? You won't lose data.

    Next step after that would be to connect in recovery mode, as explained in this article:

    If your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch won't turn on - Apple Support

    If this does not work, you will get the phone repaired.

  • To work with the text to the assignment by the cursor of the large fragment of page it is necessary to change all the time down, 'against the judgment", but the page automatically does not start to rise upward, as happens in other browsers. I ask you for

    After the transition to Windows 7, there was a problem with Firefox. To work with the text to the award by the cursor of the large fragment of page it is necessary to change all the time down, 'against the judgment", but the page automatically does not ascend to the top as it was earlier, and like that occurs in other browsers. It is necessary to press the other key "down" which is him very troublesome. Resettlement on an earlier version (8.0) earlier irreproachably working, gave nothing. I ask you to help

    You must activate the module bar (Firefox > Options or view > toolbars;) CTRL + /) or find bar to make Firefox scroll the page while selecting the text (Ctrl + F).
