Question about Western Digital Elements powered by WD 320 GB External USB (WDE1U3200N) Hard Drive
This drive made unusual clicking sounds and went out. Can I remove the cover of hard drive and replace the moving parts or motor or whatever the hells in there?
The elemets hard drives are not user serviceable and thus, you may void the warranty in doing so. Have a look on their website for the data lifeguard diagnostic software and check for possible errors. he sound you may be hearing is the heads inside the drive. If you are still under warranty, you can have your drive replaced. Make sure you have your data backed up.

the beeps ate called post
Then what happens does it restart ? or just wont boot up ?
A bit more information please.
Not sure what you mean by 'when the hard drive beeps
does the hard drive start when you turn the laptop on
(at which point a do the beeps occur a single beep isn't unusual) and it stops when you turn the hard drive off - a beep then would be unusual.
I suspect you don't mean that, & if the laptop is working fine otherwise then I wouldn't worry about it or do you mean something else completely?
make sure the ram modules have secure seatings also check all power and data leads attached from motherboard to hard drive the same will apply for your graphics card
hope this helps
