Recently my HDD keeps failing especially when booting. I thought it was my boot volume, so I repaired it, but still the problem not solved. Then I heard a sound like 'tik tik tik' , and from what I know, if the HDD make a weird sound, thats the symptoms it will fail. So I make a backup.
Before I format the HDD, I remove the graphic card, fans, reset the BIOS (I oc my processor and RAM), but the problem still there. It still make the 'tik tik tik' sound.
I tried to repair the HDD using UltimateBootCD. Because the process was toooooo long, only 5% but tooks 4 hours.
Then, I remove the RAM.
Corsair 2GB DDR2 800 (ram A)
Kingston 512MB DDR2 667 (ram B)
I remove the ram B, the sound from the HDD just disappear. Before I take out the RAM, I check my HDD with WDLG and the Spin Up Time was 71. After I remove the ram B, the Spin Up Time increase to 78.
