My hdd making weak screeching(actually cant determine what type of sound) and other problems

AkshayAnithanAkshayAnithan Member Posts: 6 New User
Its been few days that I started to hear some weird noises from the keyboard part ...which I believe is from the HDD...also the transfer speed while copying also has become uncertain..like at one point its 140Mbps then it suddenly drops to some Kbps or bytes....Is my HDD facing some problem ...its a brand new laptop bought just few months ago...and this is the first time I am facing problems...can anyone please help...
Is my HDD failing....should I SMART test it...if yes..how to test HDD to determine if its failing...??

    Reallocated sectors count is yellow meaning that the HDD is failing. You can it replaced for free if the laptop is still under warranty.
