I have installed a SSD into my laptop and move my existing hard drive into the optical drive's place. But after that my hard drive making clicking noise if I give restart. If I shutdown my laptop there won't be any noise. This noise is happen in restart, force shut down (long press power button).

Are there any fix for this issue?

My laptop is ASUS X555L (intel 5th generation)

I am having the exact same problem and I stumbled upon this topic - same configuration (SSD repacing HDD, HDD fitted as second drive into the DVD slot using a HDD caddy) and the HDD clicks each time I restart the computer. And guess what? It's an Asus as well (X452LD) - i3 4th generation

Hoping anyone can shed some light on this.
