Default almost done...

I just put my new pc together. Everything was going well until after I installed vista 64. First, I get this error saying, "Windows detected a hard disk problem." Then it proceeds to tell me my hd is failing and I should back up everything. My computer is on and working though; I'm quite confused. Second, I installed my motherboard and video card drivers fine off their cds. Now, my cd drive wont read anything. It says there is no D: in my computer>removable storage.

if anyone could offer any advice...
I'm so close to being finished ;[

Disconnect the cd drive and see if the problem goes away. I'm not too familiar with vista yet, but in past i have had errors where the cd drive has gone bad and caused it to give "hard disk" errors.

disconnected the cd, solved the cd problem. hd problem still exists. I can't lie here--my hd might have took a little spill during my installation . probably a fall from no more than a foot. I'm just worried that it broke it.....

also, my hd does make some noise when things are loading. I'm wondering if that's normal, or a sign that it's broken. I never remember my old hd being loud...but then again my psu was louder than an aircraft carrier so i probably would've never known.

What kind of sounds does the HDD make? Clicking sounds? More then once?
