  1. Hi all,

    I've got these random blue screens since a couple of months where my harddrive makes 2 clicking noises. These noises are the same when I get my laptop out of the standby mode so I assume it's the start up sound.

    After these noises my laptop will freeze for a couple of seconds, after that I'll either get a blue screen or it will continue running.

    The only two errors I'm getting are the STOP F4 and 7A error.

    I downloaded CrystalDiskInfo which gave me this result:

    Could anyone tell me what's up? I assume some segments of my hard drive have been damaged...

    I would say that the hard drive needs to be replaced. Laptop hard drives are subject to a lot of heat, shock and vibration over it's life
