Last night I had a major problem with my 2012 15 inch MacBook Pro. All of a sudden my hard drive starts making a loud clicking noise and then after several minutes the device completely shuts off. I try to power it back up and I get a white background with an icon of a file folder with a gray '?' flashing. I've had lots of problems with my laptop over the years. -Broken logic board - Hard drive issues - Software Issues - Screen Fickers when I go to sign in - A jingling/rattling sound when I move my laptop - Screen randomly shuts off The last three problems I listed were looked at but never fixed, this was while I was covered under AppleCare. Now, I have what I'm assuming is a broken hard drive. My Apple Care has expired. I have an appointment with my local Apple Store on Saturday but I know I'm probably going to have to pay out of pocket to get it fixed. Is there any chance that my latest problem (the clicking sound from my hard drive) could be related to my screen flickering, the jingling/rattling sound when moving my laptop and the screen randomly shutting off that were never fixed upon me bringing them into the Apple Store? If so, I'm wondering if I have a case to call AppleCare and see if this can get replaced for free.
