  • My laptop started clicking!!!

    woooohoooooo


    i woke up after a nap a few hours ago... turned on my computer from sleep mode... and it started clicking!!! WOOHOOOO

    jealous?


    yeah...


    that means the harddrive is BROKEN!!! WOOOT....


    "NO OS FOUND"... YAY


    i'm so happy right now...


    i had all my school stuff on it, from notes to recordings... powerpoints to essays...


    after 2 hours of trying to turn it on... it finally turns on... right now... so i quickly backup everything i can... before it goes bye bye for good...


    its a new laptop too, yay...

    To people who know things about computers... that clicking noise is 100x worse than scratching a chalk board... it basically means you are up a creek without a paddle...


    Merry Christmas to meeeeeeeeeeee

              Best Buy takes forever to get laptops back to people, so unless you can get them to swap out the hard drive on the spot I'd suggest hitting up newegg or something

                  Clone the dead one, or you had a clone backup?

                  Clicking usually implies hardware failure with bad platter or a bad hard drive motor. If its a bad platter you can sometimes us use the ibm repair tool on any hard drive to mark the bad sectors and use data recovery software to get back some of what you lost.

                        I have 3 words for you.

                        Solid State Drive

                        Less susceptible to getting banged around, quieter, and they have lower access time and latency than a regular HDD's. I wouldn't use anything else in my laptops. :thumb:

                        I usually pull the one in the laptop when I get it and sell it on ebay to help offset the cost of the more expensive SSD.

                              Yeah, but don't those have lifetime limitations as well? Such as a smaller amount of Read/Write cycles?
