Hard Drive Clicking and Stalling Tags: Hard Drives HD Storage Last response: December 8, 2009 7:32 PM in Storage Share Lessqqmorepewpew December 8, 2009 7:25:31 PM Hi, Here are the specs to my laptop: Intel Core 2 Duo T6400 3 gigs DDR3 RAM 300 gig HD 5400 RPM Windows 7 32-bit Symptoms: Long Windows loading time Stalling followed by a clicking sound Chkdsk runs randomly even when not scheduled (no bad sectors are ever found) Action Center detects "Disk Volume Error" Ran HD diagnostic, came up clean. This is fresh install so there are no bloatware and running only 50 processes. Could the HD be going bad even though the diagnostic could not find any errors? Thanks!
