Hi Everyone :) 

I have a computer with P4 3.06 GHz processor, Mercury PVM7 Version3.5 motherboard with VIA chipset, 1 GB RAM, and 160 GB IDE HDD.
I've recently installed an additional HDD on my system. Its a new seagate barracuda 1 TB SATA hard disk.
Every time I shutdown my computer this new hard disk makes a single click sound just before shutdown. I have checked my hard disk for errors and have also run some benchmark software to gauge the HDD performance. Everything seems fine except for that strange clicking sound made by this hard disk at the time of shutdown. This problem is seen only in my new SATA HDD, the older 160 GB IDE HDD is not making any clicking sound. Is there any problem with my new hard disk or the problem lies with the motherboard or BIOS? If I leave it this way will there will be any problems in the future? Please help me solve this problem.
Thanks in advance.

It's probably just the read/write heads parking. Nothing to worry about.
