Windows 7: HELP is my hard drive dying?

HELP is my hard drive dying?

I have a samsung r530 that is 1 ish almost years old. Says its Processor Intel Core i3 330E @ 2133MHz with 4gig MB of RAM.

I am hearing a clicking noise, sounds like a an old fashion cash register, like pages turning... click click, AND it has just started to stay "hung up" when i opened a webpage like it is working real hard! These are new things happening, I think the noise was always like that, but it was one quick click noise before.

Sounds like the beginning of the end.

I'd copy all critical files, particularly personal data, to some other drive or disc. Sooner rather than later.

Then I would run the hard drive manufacturer's disk utility application to see if it turns up any errors.

I'd certainly try to return it to the store. If that fails, try to return it to the manufacturer directly. It all depends on your warranty situation.

Print out the results of your HD test if possible. They may want confirmation that it failed. See if the manufacturer has an 800 number you can call.
