Hard Drive making a strange noise when running on battery,what is the

I noticed my HDD has been making this strange noise when running on battery like its trying loading something for a quick second but once it is plugged in charging the noise is not there, What could the possible problem be. I'm not sure if any of this could cause such as updating the BIOS and fresh install of windows 7
