4 week ago I got a dv6 1211sa. After about a week, it started making random clicking noises. Probably twice a day. It's not coming from the speakers as I have the sound turned off. It sounds like its coming from inside the laptop. And also, if I'm using the laptop and it clicks, you can feel the click. I cannot describe the click very weel. It sounds like, if you click on a link, that sound, except its not coming from the speaker, its coming from the actual machine.
Anyway, we got a laptop replacement, have been using for a day, clicked again twice today.
Is this normal?
It happens whether or not the charger is plugged in. And other than that, nothing else is plugged in.
Is ther anyway to stop it?

Why would the hard drive fail within a day of having it, and also with the first laptop, it was clicking within a week... surely it can't be failing already.
This time, it clicked while I wasn't using the laptop. It was still on, I had it next to me open, but wasnt using it. And no programs open either.
