Strange beep only when two drives are connected

    Hi all

    I have this case - a front door with hard drive bays for SATA internal drives.

    I have two SATA drives in here, one a 1TB and the other a 2TB.

    When only one of the drives are connected I get no beeps but when both of them are pushed in and connected I get a single beep every few minutes - the kind of beep when your Hard Drive is dying.

    Any ideas? Very puzzling!

    Run a hard drive diagnostic tool and see what it says?

    Reset the BIOS, double check boot order, both physical and virtual port assignments and the physical drive with the boot sector match up.
