Normally the clicking sound would be the heads of the drive parking when going idle!
Now, there can be an issue with control over power saving features of the disk drives as the OS and drive firmware itself both can set parameters.
I remember such an issue of excessive drive head parking issue with Ubuntu (though not necessarily Ubuntu’s fault).
The simple way to stop it would be to disable HDD idling by setting ‘Turn off hard disk after’ from under Advanced Power Settings to 0 within windows. Else, check for any firmware update for the hdd or some utility to manage acoustic/performance settings of the disk.
However, if you hear clicking all the time, it’s likely that the drive is dying … better to copy data off of it asap!
Well, i checked with “Turn off hard disk after” option from Power Settings but it didn’t stop it.
No, the hard drive don’t give clicking sound all the time just when i leave it idle and as soon as laptop display turns off sound starts but again it doesn’t come all the time. It comes for a second then stops and after few seconds sound comes again and looks like hard drive restarting itself again and again. The laptop is working perfectly okay and its happening from many months but i didn’t bother but i am concerned if it weakens the hard drive or its normal.
