Backup what you need now from the drive before it doesn't start anymore.

If your hearing a grinding or clicking noise, it usually means the drive is going bad.

Tip

HARD DISK MAINTENANCE To remove redundant and temporary files, recover hard disk...


HARD DISK MAINTENANCE
To remove redundant and temporary files, recover hard disk space and speed up hard disk access, then hard disk maintenance should be done at least once a month.
Disk Cleanup should be done first - Click My Computer - then right click on the C drive then click Properties, then click Disk Cleanup - let it examine the C drive then it will calculate the amount of disk space it will recover, tick all the boxes to recover the maximum disk space and then Click OK and then Yes to perform these actions. If you have a D drive then repeat these steps on this drive too.
Next the C drive needs to be Defrag. This process converts fragmented files into continuous files and this speeds up disk access and makes the hard disk not work as hard. Click on Start - All Programs - Accessories - System Tools - Disk Defragmenter – click to highlight the C drive and click Analyse (can skip this) - then click Defragment.
When this is completed repeat these steps for the D Drive if you have a D drive.
Disk Cleanup and Defrag can take a long time to complete, especially if these tasks have not been for a long time.
DO NOT STOP THESE PROCESSES, LET THE COMPUTER COMPLETE THESE TASKS.
Next time when you run Disk Cleanup and Defrag to won't take as long.

Hard disk clicks won't spin


Clicking Hard drive When a hard disk makes a clicking sound and the computer does not detect it then the hard disk is faulty. This is commonly known as "The click of death".
There is no way of fixing this hard drive, if you need to recover your data, then there are companies that can recover data off faulty hard drives BUT it will cost you an arm and a leg for their services.

Windows - delayed write failed


To resolve this issue, first check whether the "Enable write caching on the disk" feature is turned on. If it is turned on, turn it off. To do this, follow these steps.

Note If you turn off the "Enable write caching on the disk" feature, your hard disk may perform more slowly and may affect the overall system performance of your computer. Because of this, you may want to monitor system performance after you follow the steps in this section.

To turn off Enable write caching on the disk, follow these steps:
  1. Click Start, and then click My Computer.
  2. Right-click the hard disk, and then click Properties.
  3. Click the Hardware tab.
  4. Click to select the hard disk, and then click Properties.
  5. Click the Policies tab.
  6. Click to clear the Enable write caching on the disk check box, and then click OK.
  7. Click OK to close the Local Disk (C:) Properties dialog box.
  8. Repeat steps 3 through 5 for each hard disk that is installed in your computer.
If these steps resolve the error message, you are finished.

If this does not resolve the issue, please follow this link and follow Advanced Troubleshooting...
