My primary hard disk drive of my desktop is making those small, quick clicking sounds that the drives normally make when accessed. But it's making them when it is not being accessed (Windows shows HD usage time as 0%). Also, these clicking sounds are usually accompanied by the flashing of the HD LED. But right now only the sound can be heard but the LED is not flashing. There is also a loud clicking noise that I don't think should exist. Could the HDD be dying? The weird thing is, it is making all the applications, even Firefox, run slowly. Is this typical behavior of a dying drive? Thanks for any advice.
