Faint noise coming from notebook hard drive

Hello everyone,

I recently bought a Samsung NP530U4C-S02CA Ultrabook. Everything seems fine with the notebook with the exception of a faint static noise accompanied with a faint click. Though faint, it is constant and quite annoying. I suspect that it could be a problem with the hard drive since its coming from the HDD compartment of the laptop. It begins as soon as I boot up the notebook. Is this noise normal or is there something wrong with my notebook?

Hard drive:
Seagate ST1000LM024 HN-M101MBB - 1 TB
w/ Sandisk SSD i100 24 GB

I've added a short recording of what the noise sounds like; from 7 secs to 15 secs is the most audible portion of the recording.

  1. It does not sound like the typical head parking disk failure sound, not sure what it actually is but it doesn't sound like a problem. In any case, you should do regular backup of your data and not worry about it otherwise.
  2. not sure.
