Hard Drive clicking sound

691 Views 3 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  raptor_pa

Every time I start walking around with my laptop with the hard drive running, I hear a "clicking noise" . Some of my collegues tell me this is a sign of a bad drive. But I did CHKDSK and the result was a very healthy drive with no errors.
I also did a complete defragmentation. This laptop is LATITUDE E 6400. It runs XP SP3.

Any ideas if this "clicking noise" is dangerous?

chkdsk only tells you the file system is ok

use the dell app to test the h/drive

you should not be walking around with it
dai...I normally work with machines and I have to walk around with my laptop running. Which dell app are you referring to test the h/drive?
