Why always the RED LIGHT?

Maybe the detection circuit for the diagnostic lights is faulty, if the disk utility found no issues I would continue using the hardware.

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.

My husband recently built a new computer (previously built 5 others successfully). Motherboard seems to be working properly. Green LED lit. Graphics card works in another computer. Power supply...

Hi, the thing to do here is to narrow down what could be causing the problem, initial suspects would be the RAM chips. If you have known working ones you can try in it, try these, if not, try without one, then swap them over, or even try without both.

Also, remove any components that aren't strictly necessary, i.e. hard drives & cables, cd-rom/dvd drives, extra PCI cards,network cards etc

Another suspect may be just a loose connection, try taking everything out, re-seating it. Again, pay particular attention to the RAM chips.

It could possibly even be a faulty processor, have you another you could try? Try taking it out and re-seating it.

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.
