Ever since I got my new G74SX, I hear (very rarely, but at least once a day) a weird click sound. Metallic clicking sound. I think it might be one of my HDDs but I am not sure. Didn't shake or drop my laptop. Any ideas? It might explain why some games I run off of my HDD seem a bit laggy, though it might be the game itself (tested with Civ 5 only, but it does seem like a buggy game to start with).

It's normal thing if your HDD is WDC Scorpio black
So never mind

It's either a Seagate or Western Digital. A lot of laptop HDDs can make those clicking noises. It's normal, though sometimes annoying. ;)

Alright. Thank you. :3 I was fearing that the head might be scratching the spinning disk. xD
