I have a Clevo laptop with a Samsung Harddisk. Ubuntu 8.04.  I'm totally confused with this issue. My system have hdparm -B 254 and no Load_Cycle_Count, but my 'Load_Retry_Count' is constantly increasing. The clicks is loud, much louder than the clicks from Load_Cycle_Count increase. Sometimes the clicks comes often 2-3-4 clicks in short times and then stops for half an hour or so. The clicks is very bothering. 
I have disabled tracker, no hddtemp in daemon mode, and i have mounted ext3 with noatime flag.
What is that 'Load_Retry_Count' clicks? What should i do to stop them, they are annoying.

Regards
pelm
