If I bought something and it didn't work right, I would take it back not try to fix it for them.
I'm not trying to be rude or anything but why waste your time and energy trying to fix something when you can return it for less hassle.

Hi there Gurpartap_1,

The first thing you need to do is to back up the data stored on the drive until you sort this out.

What do you mean by weird noise? Is it just loud spinning or some clicking, clunking, etc.? Does this happen all the time or only during boot?
In case it sounds like the HDD is spinning loud, you can go to Resource Monitor and see whether you have high disk usage and what is causing it.

Cheers,
D_Know_WD :)
