Hello,

This is the storage fix up for a WDC WD1600BEVT-22ZCT0 hard drive in
an MSI Wind U100 Netbook.  This netbook I have been using has a
Power_On_Hours of 38h and Load_Cycle_Count of 6617 (174 cycle/h). And
the noisy clicking sound can be heard every a few seconds.  I found
that Power Management Level 254 is acceptable for it.

Please be noted that the "smartcrl -a" output was taken today, when
I'd used it for a long time with Power Management Level 254/255 so the
Load_Cycle_Count/Power_On_Hours in it doesn't reflect the status of
it's default setting (Power Management Level 128). The
Load_Cycle_Count/Power_On_Hours in above paragraph was recorded months
ago without changing its default Power Management Level, thus very
high.

Thank you. Please call me if you need any more information.
