View Full Version : Is my laptop's HDD dying?

When the HDD is idling, every know and then it makes a sound like a tick/click as if it's parking the heads. I ran HD Tune and performance wise everything is fine other than the ticks/clicks when it's idling. I asked this question on another forum and they said it's normal for a HDD to sometimes park the heads when the HDD is idling. What do you guys say? The clicks happen a couple times per minute...sometimes less sometimes more.

for some laptop hdd that is normal. for some it isn't.

also depends what power mode they are in.

I am using Vista Business 64-bit in High Performance mode. So I basically shouldn't be worried?
