My HD just can't boots up and sounds like "TIC TAC...TIC TAC...TIC TAC..." the sound trying to power up (the HD physically)

Tried to boot up with my XP CD, and see if I can actually remove the partition and reinstall everything to fix it....but then the XP said can't even detect the HD (when it plugged in correctly)

I was able to use my PC with NO PROBLEM at all, I was even playing games til 4am yesterday night..humm...

My HD just died all sudden?!?!?!?!

I hope not, or I'll really gonna cry!

Nah, I used it for about 1.5 yrs already.
Haven't try on another computer, but I tried to switch to another HD with my same PC...and that HD boots up normally...


I beg you, HD! Please don't.......................

Happened to me with my WD. Make sure you got the jumper in correctly.

The one Im having problem is a WD as well.
And I never move the jumper or anything....
I was still playing game yesterday night with my PC...and just another day my HD is kinda dead now...

Virus? or the HD just dead for no reasons?

I wish I could have had clicking instead of A loud rusty chainsaw death for my old hard drive.

I lost about 20GB of Demos and Patches
