Since it had this constant clicking sound, with the HD light blinking
accordingly, I ran scandisk with all the options, for about 45 minutes
and... no clicking during the whole process.
The clicking started again when I rebooted. so, it must have something
to do with Win 7 rather than the HD itself, I guess.
I am running Win Pro 7 x64, BTW...
There is no firmware update available, so I really don't know how to
fix. Any suggestions?
Thank you in advance for any help you may provide...
Re: WD3200BEVT Clicking Sound...
It could be... But, I installed quietHDD as a TSR and the noise
stopped immediately. I just hope the software is safe as I have read
around on the Net. Are u familiar with it? See, my big worry was a
defective HD, but that has been ruled out, I suppose, otherwise, the
noise would have continued and I never had a slow down or a crash...
Anyway, thank you for the suggestion. I will also try HDPARM for
Windows, as soon as I find the correct parameters to use...
