    Samsung should have free software for you to test your hard drive. Google "Samsung hard drive test". That should do it for you.

    Since you have a new HD, maybe it's a failing RAM stick. You could go here:

    http://www.memtest.org/

    download the iso and burn it to a CD (if you have one) and run memtest to see if any errors show up in your RAM memory...

    OK...

    That's great vinayak86

    Just make sure your files are all backed up in case those noises from your HD are a sign of a worn or failing disk

    Good luck
