No knocking, bumping, dropping done. I never do that to my computer...I treat it like I would treat my baby. lol

I will go home and check the temps at idle again. It stays at 35/36C as far as I can recall :-)

Yussi If yo have Speccy (I bet you do), under Hard Drives it has the SMART info at the bottom of the long list of data, Good/Bad.

When you ran Seatools you should see something like "SMART is NOT tripped". CrystalDisk shows you SMART status as well. The pics in your first post indicate SMART is not tripped, the drive is healthy. That's where CrystalDisk's graphs come in handy; it'll show potential issues before SMART gets tripped.
No I didn't. My aim was to see if the hard drive passes the long generic or not . Do I have to run the test again or something?

Open the case with the computer off, start it with your hand on the HDD.
Then you will know for sure what is vibrating, it could be something else like a fan as F5ing said.

If it's the HDD, then backup anything you want to keep as it won't last for long.

Thank you Dave, I was planning on keeping the case open with the HDD out the entire week after I heard the sound again. Will do it this way when I go home in the evening and post the stuff that F5ing, Ant and Gary have asked for.

It would be nice if you can take video of this sound and vibration and post it here (probably using ur phone camera)... it would give us a much better picture
