    Hard Drive Clicking - Intermittently works


    Hi Jackbox

    Generally a clicking sound coming from your hard drive is called the click of death which is a good indication the drive will crash very soon and will not start up. So my advice is "BACKUP YOUR HARD DRIVE!" as soon as possible. Because if the drive fails, you will be out of luck. Backup, Backup.

    Here is a couple of things to do to check
    Scan Your Drive On Windows XP, you can check your hard drive for errors by running the CHKDSK utility. Restart your computer and hold down the Ctrl key while it's booting up. When you see the option to start your system in Safe Mode, select it and continue. Click the Start button, then click Run, then type CHKDSK C: /F /R then press Enter. The /R option tells CHKDSK to scan for bad disk sectors, and the /F option means to fix any errors found. (On a Windows 98 system, use the SCANDISK command instead of CHKDSK.)
    If CHKDSK offers to "convert lost chains to files", recover lost data, or fix something else, you should accept. After CHKDSK finishes, restart your computer normally and see if the dreaded click of doom returns. If so, the drive is most likely damaged, and should be replaced as soon as possible. Backup those files
    Are You On The Level? Some hard drives are very sensitive to non-level surfaces, and will not function properly if they're sitting on a slant. Shut down your computer, make sure your system unit is on a flat surface (use a level to make sure), and then restart.

    Sorry can not tell you more but besides backup the files and the bad part your harddrive is most likely on the way out.

    Bill
