I have not yet done the suggested HD Diagnostic extended CD scan -- just because I don't have any blank CDs handy to burn a boot disk, but will do so as soon as I get some.

Also, recently I noticed that the HDD chatter/clicking has been getting louder. I don't know if this is just because I'm becoming more self-conscious of the HDD noise. The chatter is loudest during boot-up, and it'll also occur from time to time while I'm using the computer. I'm not sure how to describe it (maybe almost like a scratching sound?), but it def doesn't sound normal in my opinion.

Just how loud is this clatter lanboy you should hear some slight clicking/fluttering and the disk spinning but loud clatter does not seem right to me at least.
