Windows 7: SMART Test result

SMART Test result

My chassis has some quality problem but I cannot afford to buy a new one at the moment. Especially the hard drive part, the mounting part of the hard drive is very unusual. Sometimes the computer could give unknown strange noise, it still works perfectly, though.

So I test the HDD

I tested the HDD by CrystalDiskInfo. This is the result. I only know it's "Good", but I don't know if the temperature is alright and what those values mean. I've captured the screen. Could anyone help see if it's good. Thanks

That temperature is fine......the noise you are hearing is probably the disk mount rattling against the chassis/screws. Its nothing to be concerned about unless its extremely loose, and the HDD is physically moving a lot.

What is so unusual about the mounting?
Please give the brand and model number of the chassis.

(I'm thinking rubber grommets)

The green color of the indicators is your guide that all is well. The "Health" status is also green and says "Good".

I think there's no need to worry, It says GOOD so it's fine, Maybe.
Why don't you let someone check your computer?

Sometime we hearing the spinning of DVD burner, or dirt fan.
I clean those fan with brushtooth adding some oil and all are ok ( when its do able)
Also, you can disable autorun in the O/S.

Hope my little hint wil help you, for your picture all are green so where is the trouble
Maybe the fan of your heatsink too

Oil and you drop one MAX, sometime you have to remove the sticker on the middle of the fan sometime you have a cork.

This oil is pro for this job

Last thing i can say, in the past I had a bad hdd with bizaroid noise, and after that every boot, i heard some knock only at boot and couple month after Ive heard the knock randomly and at the end the knock were constantly after the last reboot the drive wasn't recognized XD
So there is the step of a dying hdd

hello

everyone. I've been late coming back but I hope it's not too late.

The chassis is a cheap chassis which is confirmed (by me) to have quality problem

The HDD is mounted vertically (turning 90 degree to mount with the four screw holes)
