Clicking coming from inside my laptop

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

    I am currently in a distpute with my purchaser as i have taken mine to a local shop for a second opinion.

    I have an engineers report that now says my hard drive is Faulty and it should NOT make any clicking sounds at all.

    So if i were you i would take it back where you got it from and ask them to check it

When i turn on my laptop theyre is a constant squeal noise and the fan starts turning immediately but i have stopped the fan from turning and the squeal continues so it cant be this.

To my recent experience the keyboard had to be replaced. It had something spilled on it unbeknown to the owner, making it squeal. I ordered a replacement, installed it and viola! No more squeal.

Laptop recently started to make noise on start up, feels and sounds like it's coming from the area below the keyboard in the lower left part, it's an acer aspire 5570-2067. it makes noise for a while, then...

Def sounds like the fan , from where you say the sound is coming from . normally the fan should be able to be cleaned the panned holding the fan in the left hand corner . clean the fan with compressed air , or a paint brush . if this fails then you need a new fan .

Funny noise(like a typewriter) coming from hp dv2019ea

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,

Still got my clicking coming from inside my laptop

Usually, the clicking means your hard drive is about to fail. Unfortunately, there is no much you can do about it. Since your PC is 4 months old, you should still be under warranty. Just ask them to replace it.

If they won't, you can get pick a brand new one online at decent prices.

Good luck
