Re: Weird clicking noise on a new laptop
Hey guys. Sorry for the gravedig, but I wanted to update you on this post that I made last year.
I do believe this laptop model was shipped with a defective harddrive of some sort. I do not know for sure. I never did anything about it, the harddrive is still alive and working well, and there is the occasional clicking that I was hearing when I purchased this laptop.
I disabled pagefile and restarted and I have not heard any clicking ever since then. Not one. This was 2 days ago. My advice to anyone with this laptop and same problem as me, would be to do the same and disable pagefile (If you can afford to do so). If you still hear clicking, there is a bigger problem.
Intel i7 4770k 3.50ghz, 32gb Corsair Vengeance RAM (8x4 kit), 2 x 2TB WD Black HHD, nVidia 770GTX 4gb OC, Asus Z87-A Motherboard, running Windows 7 64 bit.
