I have problem with my laptop Lenovo y50-70 (almost 3 years old) recently I started getting bsod on my win7 and no bootable device afterwards with my hard drive clicking. I reinstalled win to win 10 and replaced my CMOS battery and it worked for about a week. Today the clicking and 'no bootable device' returned. I disconnected and reconnected my hardrive and now it is working normal again. Is my hard drive dying or is it bad cable / software issue?
Thanks for answers and sorry for any grammatical errors.

Sounds a lot like the drive is going to need replacing soon. Better to back up what you can now before it goes and you lose everything.
