    HDD sata making strange sound , Windows do not boot after opening HDD case

    Hi ,
    My laptop do not boot after opening HDD case. I tried to install new windows , but I get notification ( Windows cannot be installed to this disk. The disk may fail soon. If other hard disks are available, install Windows in another location ) . I uploaded small video via google drive where HDD is running , does it's have to sound like this ? if someone knows options how to solve this problem and can share that with me I would be very thankful.

    Sounds like the click of death to me.

    One LITTLE/SMALL flake of dust on the drive with the cover off will destroy the drive. Get a new hard drive.

    I agree. It is so worn out it can no longer find Track 0 and needs to be replaced. (The cost to repair it -- especially one that has had its internals exposed to dirty air -- would far and away exceed the cost of a new one.)
