Hard disk grinding noise

I have a hp pavilion dv6 6119tx(under warranty).There is a grinding like noise coming from the hard disk.I did the hardisk BIOS test.It returned no errors.Is that a noise normal?will there be any future issue?

Re: Hard disk grinding noise

Is this a new sound that has started or a sound that has always been there? Most laptop hdds sounds are more noticeable than a desktop since they are in closer proximity to user and mine has a small activity sound emiiting most of the time. However any unusual grinding or clicking can indicate hdd starting to fail.
