As a precautionary measure back up any important data on the HDD if you have not done so already, any unusual HDD noise or behavior is best treated as a sign of possible mechanical failure.
Check out the sounds of HDDs with issues and see if any are the same or similar http://datacent.com/...rive_sounds.php
Run the HDDs diagnostics tool;
Make sure you select the tool that is appropriate for the brand of your hard drive http://www.tacktech....ay.cfm?ttid=287
Depending on the program it'll create a bootable floppy or a bootable CD.
If the downloaded file is the .iso type use ImgBurn: http://www.imgburn.com/ to burn the .iso file to a CD (select "Write image file to disc" option) and make the CD bootable.
