    Hey there, thanks for reading my post!

    I recently bought a new laptop (HP Pavillion dv9000 series).

    Its been working great until a few days ago. The laptop has duel sata hard drives in it,, 1 120gig and 1 80gig.

    My problem is that the secondary drive started to make a clicking sound that almost resembles its booting noise. It frequently makes this noise (about every 10-15 seconds) as you can understand its driving me nuts ^^

    Im able to read from and write to the drive with no problems, so im really not sure what the issue is. To me it sounds like a faulty drive thats on its way out, buttt it seems to operate perfectly.

    Im new to the laptop world and dont have much experience. They are a little bit different then the gaming rigs im used to working on lol...

    For the reccord im using vista, and the computers set to run on High performance (i keep it plugges in). I recently altered some of Vista's services but im not sure if that would have any effect on the hard drive.

    Anyway any and all help or insight into my problem would be greatly appricated.

    thanks again for reading my post, and have a great day! Any questions please ask, ill be keeping an eye on this thread.
