i've had this problem with 2 PC's. when i install ubuntu, after a couple a days, my hdd clicks and only the hdd shuts doun. ubuntu freezes and theres no option but to force restart it. after the restar the problem repeats after a couple of minutes. what am i doing wrong? how can i fix this problem?
You don't mean you tried the same HDD on 2 PCs right? Do you dual-boot either machine? Can you rule out HDD fault with the other OS or
