Clacking noise hard drive on HP Pavilion dv2700 Laptop


Clacking or Scratching noise coming from my laptop hard drive whenever the hard drive is accessed. Looks like most of the time, this noise is coming. I had called up Hp support, as usual they said, send the laptop to them. I just bought this laptop just 1 week ago. Is there any solution to stop this noise ?

You can hear this clacking noise in youtube

Thanks Sarava

    Do you meant to say that the hard disk is failure now..
    It's annoying because I hear this noise from the day one.
    Whenever, the hard disk is accessed (by the time, the blue indicator light of hard disk blinks) I hear this noise.

    Thank you for your reply.

    Do you meant to say that the hard disk got failure now ? :-(

    It's annoying because I hear this noise from the day one, whenever the hard disk is accessed (by the time the blue indicator light of hard disk blinks), the noise is coming..

    Can this be resolved by doing or changing some settings in Vista in Operating system if this is not a mechanical failure ?

Exact same problem with HP - Pavilion - DV6

Sometimes makes clacking noise

Windows Scandisk and HP Diagnostics did not show any problems

I checked it with Acronis Disk Director, found some errors and fixed them, then the noise stopped, but after about 3 weeks it started again and this time Acronis did not find any errors!

Same problem here. I am using a HP DV2700t, I did not not notice this in the begining but after 2 to 3 weeks, I am noticing this Clacking or Scratching noise coming from my laptop hard drive whenever the hard drive is accessed, i ahve searched so many forums, every where same problem with the HP laptops, and they say it is normal, and hope it is so, I cant even return it, or give it to HP for service, as i bought it in U.S and i am now in India. If anyone has any solution for this do let me know

Exact same problem. Bought a new HP dv2911us, from day one, it started the noise and it continues. It is persistent whenever the disk is accessed at every I/O occurance. The disk is HITACHI 250GB 5400 RPM. Followed HP support suggestion to run diag - shows no errors. More than the constant irritation, I am worried about losing all the info i store.

While researching, i found several people having exact this problem (and some on the exact same drive), had to replace the drive or live with it. Some return the PC. This is my 12th notebook, and for the first time, i will have to return - btw, the dvd drive also makes louder (than others) wind noise. Bad Buy.

Laptop hard drives can be a bit louder than the new desktops and because you're closer may be more noticable. The sound from that youtube is about normal - this video is the sound of the heads crashing - mechanical drive failure.
Just to be safe - BACKUP your important data and if you don't have the install disks, make a set.

I wonder if the controller board on the motherboard is bad. I'd report it to HP again and see if they can fix it for you. Obviously they switch vendors for getting hard drives.
