I have a clicking noise coming from my hard drive, and now nothing happens when i plug in just clicking and light blinking....im lost and scarred i have everything on that...whats wrong?


The cause of this clicking sound is the arm of the hard drive platter moving as far as it can to the right, in a pattern or randomly.If this write head touches the platter of the hard drive and scratches it, all the data that is stored on that portion will be erased and be unwritable. The hard drive repeatedly attempts to recalibrate the write head, causing the abrupt clicking noises. In most of these cases, the problem is caused by a manufacture defect or physical abuse of the hard drive itself.Unfortunately this is a sign that its worn out also.

Clicking sound from the hard drive near the cd


A clicking hard drive is a dying hard drive. Stop using it immediately. Replace it, then use a SATA to USB or IDE to USB adapter to try to copy off any data you might have that is still salvageable. The more you try to use it, the less chance you have of recovering information.
