    you can't have clanks AND a functional HDD. clanks means it's broken Wwwwwaaaaaaay beyond repair. (I've had this issue. it's not every "spin" do you know what 7200 RPM means? it's the arm or one of the arms of the HDD that fell of the edge of the disk and it's trying to get back on but can't. even if it could by now it'd only risk scratching the disk surface)

    obviously you knew toshiba isn't the reference point but that doesn't really mean anything sometimes you get lucky and it works for dozens of years sometimes you're not.

    at any rate WD is not the best.

    gl but i strongly suggest you unplug that HDD from your computer at this rate it might start causing electrical feedback that could cause damage to the other components of the PC. don't risk it.
