Hi, I have recently purchsed HD502HJ SATA drive (500 GB with 16 MB Cache) at system boot there is head clicking sound. some times it hangs and not boot and take some attempts to start. so far it bootup...

That clicking is almost always the sound of a hard drive failing. It is the sound made when the heads attempt to park. You may have purchased an old or a defective drive. If you are able to get this running, immediately back up all of your data to a flash drive to preserve it because there is no guarantee the drive will continue to work the next time.

Give me a site for cheking hdd warrenty

From the manufacturer's web-site:

the warranty for the HD502HJ is "12 months".

Many of the drives sent to SAMSUNG for exchange, are actually defect-free. Often, there are configuration issues or corrupt data causing the difficulty. Before you send your drive in for exchange, we suggest that you try the following troubleshooting option. Many times this down-time and inconvenience caused by unnecessarily removing, exchanging, and re-installing the hard drive.

Click: On-line hard disk troubleshooting page

to run "checks" against your disk-drive.

Do a google search for "A&V400-MX Motherboard driver" and there are plenty of sites to download the drivers from, such as this one:

Then run the installer if it's there, or right click on the .inf file and "install" it. There may be instructions with the files you can follow to install.
