Hi Lou - It doesn't matter how long you've had it or how you've treated it. Sometimes things just fail. The clicking pretty much always means the drive is about to fail.

Move as much data (if it's important) on to another drive, such as your computers or another external drive if you have one. Once you move you data (or not) shut down the drive and do not power it up again.
Since you've had it two months I'm going to assume it has a warranty. Call the manufacturers or sellers tech support as soon as possible. They'll give you an RMA (return material authorization) and hopefully you'll have a new working drive shortly.

Good Luck and glad you made your help inquiry at Fix Ya.

No sound card driver no sound audio


Try this:

Go to Start->Settings->Control Panel->Adminstrative Tools->Services

Then locate in the list of services "Windows Audio". Open this service

If this service is showing with a Startup type set to Disabled then Select "Automatic" from the drop down list then hit apply. Then click the "Start" button.

If this service is showing with a Startup type set to Manual then Select "Automatic" from the drop down list then hit apply. Then click the "Start" button.

Next Go to Start->Settings->Control Panel->Sounds and Audio Devices then select the Volume Tab then put a tick in the box marked "Place Volume Icon in the Task Bar" then click apply.

With a bit of luck and following wind you should now have your sound restored.

Good luck
