Re: What is wrong with a hdd that keeps on clicking every second
If it's clicking, it's dead.
Your only option is to replace it at this point, especially since you decided to open it.
No, you can't fix it. Once a drive is clicking, it has limited time to live. If there's important data on it, you'll have to send it to a professional data recovery business, which is usually at least $500, at least here in the US it is.
