Amilo Pa1510 & Mechanical "Clank"

Postby rares » Tue Sep 12, 2006 7:10 am

Hi,

Recently I've bought a Amilo Pa1510 and it has a "little" problem. From time to time I hear a mechanical "clank". This mechanical clank seems to be related with my HDD (i presume). This is something to worry about or not?

Thanks in advance.

Do you know the manufacturer and the exact model of your harddisk?

Some users of the M3438 complained about something similar - they have Seagate drives. According to Seagate it is normal and no problem. There was also a technical reason, but I don't know it anymore...

You could try a harddisk diagnostic tool or read the SMART (error) values.

ALL SMART VALUES ARE NORMAL/OK. And I found something very interesting... when hdd is no longer used (no hdd loadings), the clank noise appear. I think is nothing wrong, maybe the hdd is parking the heads or something, or just enters in deep sleep mode to conserve energy (i hope).

PS: I need a service manual for my laptop, could you help me? And one more: i want to overclock my processor and my graphic core. Is that possible? Is there a tweaked/pro version of my BIOS?

oh, joy ;)

Yes, I think so, too.

Maybe the OEM has one on his homepage, probably it's an Uniwill.

Graphics core: should work with tools in Windows.
