Just want to chime in and say I have the same hard drive (in an HP Mini 5101), and have been experiencing the same clicking since the machine was new.
I show zero bad sectors on the drive using DriveCheck , everything says 'OK' using this tool.
I've found two threads on another forum which suggest that Dell released a firmware upgrade that fixed the problem for the ST9320421ASG:
Is there a firmware upgrade for the ST9320423ASG?

Hi folks, I have an ST9320423AS from HP with firmware 0006HPM1. The hard drive makes occasionally clicking noises, which drive me crazy. Health is estimated at 100% by HD Sentinel and there are no other issues with it whatsoever. I would love to update to 5SDM1 and get rid of the annoying sounds, but I am afraid I may brick it. Has anyone had experience with such a procedure?
