Hello all I have some issues I need a little help with.
It started when my OSs WD drive started failing, BSODs on boot and randomly in windows. I started by updating drivers/bios etc. Still nothing so I ran some tests on it and they failed so I bought a Seagate 1TB drive, I think it was around this time I started hearing random idle "clicks" or something coming from my case (it sits on my desk really close to me) I read that seagate drives can have this "chirp" issue so I went ahead and bought a SSD drive, changed my BIOS settings and went on my way. Now, the clicking is still there, unless my SSD is the only drive plugged in. I have another 1TB WD drive as storage and with it plugged in I hear random clicks. I have never noticed these before at all! So if I have my SSD + Seagate and WD drive plugged in I get random clicks. With my SSD and just WD drive I also get clicks! No noise with just my SSD. Also, all my drives show up in system tray as removable, that normal? Now, do you think something is off in my bios settings? did something get reset when I updated BIOS? is this normal? I haven't a clue, the random noise really gets to me in this quiet room, I can't seem to figure this out at all, so please.. anyone experience this? I have a new WD blue drive on the way, I might try using that as a boot drive and going back to all mechanical drives to see if it goes away.
Thanks in advance!
