My PC makes a clicking sound just after boot up and cant do anything during this time.?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi all,
My PC makes a clicking sound almost 8 times out of 10 when i start up.I think it is my HDD (1 TB Hitachi) And cant do anything during this time. The screen freeze or always busy. So i installed another HDD (500GB Toshiba) hoping i can save my important stuff.
I have only one game in that new HDD and once the same noise came so i reboot the PC the new HDD was missing but after the second shutdown and turning on it returned.

Another day while working on the PC the screen went blue saying there is an error in HDD and i couldn't restart. It said no disk to boot. I turned it off and turned on next day and then it is working properly only had to select the boot up HDD from bios. Still the clicking noise comes just after start up almost every time
This is driving me nuts. When i tell the hardware shop they cant find anything wrong . No errors in HDD. Please tell me why this is happening. It is so annoying. The PC and it's components are only 3 months old.

It would be a big help if anyone can give me an idea


here are the specs
2nd Gen Core i3 2100 processor
Asus P8 H61-M LX3 R2.0 Mother board
Transcend 8GB DDR3 ram
AD tech H-1700 550W power supply
EVGA Nvidia Geforce 630 1GB DDR3
1 TB Hitachi 7200RPM HDD
500 GB Toshiba 7200RPM HDD
Asus DVD writer .
win 7 64 bit

Thanx.

does the clicking noise continue after you completely remove the original hdd ?
It seems to me that the drive is malfonctionning causing that clicking sound but eventualy is able to be read from. If it's only few month old you should be able to return it no problem.
If you could test drives individualy you should be able to tell if the sound is comming from one of them.
