I'm trying to erase my G4 Powerbook 1.5 ghz laptop and it is making digital noises like bleeps. Is everything ok? Is this normal?

Usually you hear such a noise at the end of its life. I would strongly recommens you to make backup of all the important files/folders in case....

Are you refering to the hard drive or something else? My computer is only 2 years old. What does the beeping mean?

I'm referring to the HDD. If you have used your PB intensively, there is a possibility of wear & tear, even after 2 years.
