    Intermittent "Beeping" Noise With Windows 10 & Two HDD's???

    I'm new here and I upgraded to Windows 10 a couple of days ago and I love it!

    I've only got a couple of issues:

    Ever since the first week in May, there's been an intermittent "beeping" sound (kinda like the sound you hear when a USB device is either plugged in or unplugged) and I'm wondering if the cord that goes with my WD 1TB HDD isn't going bad on me?

    Also, when I go to my files (where my pictures and music are located), I see TWO hard disk drives. Now, this really has me confused!! Why would two hard disk drives be showing when I only have one?

    Hi Tony,

    I have a few guesses for your beeping sound problem, for me a first suspect would be audio drivers.
    I had a quick look at the support page of Dell, no drivers after Windows 7... too bad if the problem is drivers.

    For your hard disk drives problem we would like to have a view of your disk management.
    Please follow below tutorial for posting a screenshot of your disk management.
