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

Makes clicking noise

If noise is coming from front wheels and it gets worse when turning, the noise could be coming from a bad constant velocity joint that needs repair. When that snaps, you do not go anywhere!

If you have a broken cv boot, chances are that is the joint that is messed up since dirt and debris gets inside and ruins the joint.

Whining Noise Near Rear Differential

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

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,

Desktop computer fan runs constantly


Desktop fans do run constantly, you cannot avoid this.

The reason they get loud is because there will be a build up of dust on the fan blades.

To rectify this problem turn off the computer and remove the power cord from the rear. Then you need to remove the side panel from the base unit to expose the motherboard.

You will see that inside the case it is full of dust. Look at the CPU fan (the fan on the motherboard) also take notice of any case fans too, they are at the back.

To clean the fans and the case you can use a clean dry paintbrush or compressed air.

Once the inside of the case is cleaned you will see a noticeable drop in noise.

Hotpoint refrigerator hss25gfpj ww, clicking constantly, not cooling!!!

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.
