The laptop is half a year old. I am not sure if the click has been around from the very moment I've bought the laptop, but for at least 3 months I can hear it click. I've had HDD-s die on me before, but with a typical click of death and symptoms of PC freezing and similar, however this type of click without any symptoms (yet?) is new to me. Is it dying ? Is it even the HDD? I don't have an optical drive, it doesn't sound like a fan type of click for sure, so i assume it is.

Here's the video. I think it captured it well enough. It is not a loud click, but surely loud enough to hear it distinctly when the room is quiet.

MERGED QUESTION
Question from patrik.zanic : "Clicking sound from laptop, not a normal click of death HDD sound (sound video)"

The laptop is half a year old. I am not sure if the click has been around from the very moment I've bought the laptop, but for at least 3 months I can hear it click. I've had HDD-s die on me before, but with a typical click of death and symptoms of PC freezing and similar, however this type of click without any symptoms (yet?) is new to me. Is it dying ? Is it even the HDD? I don't have an optical drive, it doesn't sound like a fan type of click for sure, so i assume it is.
