I still get the same clicking, but now it also sometimes happens before I type in the passphrase to unlock the luks encrypted lvm partition the OS sits on. Maybe it's the hard disk controller. I also took out the Broadcom wifi/bluetooth pci express card as it was acting up too. Maybe it's time to retire this Samsung NP-RF711-S07UK. Bought in 2012, that's four years more than the warranty. Regards, Philip Ashmore Still using the Samsung, no clicks at the moment.
