Samsung HD501LJ HDD Clicking
Just want to know if theres a fix for this problem

Samsung HD501LJ HDD starts to click after a period of inactivity.

the computer will be idle for say 15mins.. then the hard drive will start to sound like its trying to write or read.. does that for about 10seconds and then makes a click... it repeats itself over until i move the mouse and start using the computer again..

is the HDD on its way out?

no changes have been made to the hardware etc..
