RE: Hard disk clicking on Alienware 14 ...?

I don't know the answer, but if I heard strange clicking from HDD, I would:

- Backup important data

- Read SMART data from drive. For starters ... 05, C5, and C6 should all be 0.

If I had a lot of software installed (or no access to Windows re-installation media) ... probably a full system Image as well.

I think calling phone support would be in order right about now.
