    I have a 1TB WD Green hard drive and of late I have noticed a periodic clicking sound from the hard drive, which is similar to the sound happens when I generally shutdown the computer. Also the computer has started crashing. So my problem is

    1. is the sound an indication of some thing wrong with the hard drive or could it be because of some other component.

    Thanks bertus...I had posted this problem on other forums too, some of them dedicated computers forums and no one came up with that solution !! Will give this a try.
