  1. I think its internal power issue unless the drive is not properly Connected
    have you checked the power cable and sata connector ? try changing it to different ports
  2. Weird sounds from a hard drive sound like a failing hard drive.

    Might be time to invest in an ssd.

    Well It's an gaming laptop should I unplug and plug in the Hard Drive?

    Check the manual of your laptop. It may have a built-in diagnostic utility for troubleshooting your hardware including the hard drive. Another option if you have it: remove the drive and use a SATA-USB adapter and test that hard drive on another PC as an external drive with a hard drive health utility like CrystalDiskMark.
