A faulty hard disk that produces a knocking sound is likely to have a fault on its read /write head. The knocking sound you can hear is caused by the arm of the hard disk knocking against other components in the hard drive.
In some cases the hard drive is clicking due to drive’s actuator arm, this can be solved by giving the hard drive a mild shock to free the arm. But need to careful to open the hard drive case in clean room.
