    I am getting a "clicking" sound from my hard drive. I have heard this is a foreshadowing of the hard drive failing or the mother board about ready to die. I am using a Sony PCV-RX 765. Please give me some feed back on what's going on.

    Yup, clicking from the hard drive does indeed mean a failing drive. Just make sure it is from the hard drive and not a fan rubbing against something. You're going to want to backup any critical data and have the drive replaced as soon as posiible.

    Hard drive is probably getting ready to die. Check to see if it is still be under warranty. I would replace it as soon as possible.
