So I got home and booted up my system. Had it on for about a minute while checking mail and all of a sudden one of my hard drives spun up really fast and was vibrating, but no click sounds. I'm assuming this is not good. It's a Western Digital Blue 1 terabyte at 7200 RPM. After about 2 minutes it settled back down to normal. However, my PSU started making a clicking sound as of a wire inside was barely caught on the fan, so not to loud, and has just now stopped as I'm typing. PSU I'm not so worried about. But what about the hard drive? It's never done this, I have another one that is exactly alike, however I got one about of them about 2 months ago and the other over a year and a half ago. Is there any software to diagnose? They're both right next to each other, so I could not discern which one was the problem. Thanks in advance for any help.
