I have a constant clicking noise coming from inside my laptop. It has only recently started doing it and i have had the laptop for about 6 months.
Does anybody have any ideas what it is or why it is clicking?
I was told by pc world that it is normal hard drive noise but i dont agree and it is most annoying

indicates a fuel pump problem as that is the only thing in that area that is ignition controlled or possibly the EVAP system solenoid/ valve if it is in that area
the frequency will be constant as the pump rpm is constant
the noise could be a venting noise from the EVAP in in that area
the distance of 15 km indicates that the problem is heat related as it take that long for something to over heat and cause the noise
you may get an indicator by running the fault code
Clicking is usually caused by your HDD (harddrive), system
fan, or your CD/DVD drive as they are normally the only mechanical devices
inside a computer. On a laptop it is common for the HDD to produce a clicking
noise as it may have developed a fault whilst being moved. If you listen and it
sounds like the HDD is clicking then you need to backup all of your data immediately
and replace the HDD with a new one as the HDD could die at any time.
If it sounds like the fan is clicking then clean it and
check there is no debris or cables hitting it.
If your CD/DVD drive is making the noise then replacing it
should resolve the problem.
Hope this helps,
Recently had a friend with the same problem. Found that one of the power supplies on the board had a blown capacitor. This allowed the relay on the board to energize but not enough voltage was being sent to hole the relay closed. Basically a blown board was the problem. I found the wiring diagram very informative, it was hidden behind the temprature potentiometers.
