The clicking noise is possibly the reader arm skipping across the platters on your hard drive a dirty hard first clean all of the dust from your computer using a fine air blower using a vacuum cleaner with no metal piping you might short your motherboard out if metal touches anything or a fine air blower from a compressor making sure there is no MOISTURE in the air line then give the hard drive a firm tap on one side to free up the read arm you could run the check disk utility Click start run type cmd then type chkdsk/r/f which willscan for and attempt to repair any bad sectors and automatically fix any corrupt files on your hard drive then defragment your hard drive don't do anything while the chkdsk utility is in progress any input may damage your computer it might be power or data trying to get a connection make sure all power and data leads are securely attached

if this fails you might have a dirty hard driver with the reader arm skipping across the platters on your hard drive


give the hard drive a firm tap on the side to free up the reader arm you might be able to get it going long enough to salvage your data or it might go for a longer time


or you might use the freeze hard drive

What does it mean when a dryer starts to tick like a clock


the ticking sound you hear is the timer motor.this is normal on timed dry.on auto dry you should only hear it when the heater is turned off.if the dryer shuts off and will not start after 20 to30 min. the motor has over heated and stopped to prevent over heating.venting is the no.1 cause of this.the vent system needs to be checked first.if it is a magic chef,admiral,or maytag under a few years the part below the lint screen needs to have all that lint removed every 6mo.

Strange clicking noise in front


It could be the internal combustion of the main valve being clogged or it has a loose spark plug that is constantly providing a spark without oil.

There is a ticking noise everytime my car is on that sounds like the turn signal noise but theres no pattern or order to the ticking. i thought the hazard switch was bad, what could the ticking noise be?


It could be a relay clicking under the dash due to a bad ground circuit somewhere in the vehicle. It would be best to have a professional put an ear to it.

97 Merc Grand Marquise just started a loud


If sound comes from under the dash, it might be an hvac actuator that is having a problem? Sometimes you can put your hand on it and feel the vibration? Sometimes with a relay, you can do the same thing.

Clicking sound coming from thermostat area - when it's clicking the temperature numbers are off - was clicking for short periods of time - now clicking for hours


Hi, The clicking noise sound like a clock ticking? If so, it is probably you defrost timer. The defrost timer has a motor on it that sounds like a clock and has four wires that go to it..
This is what I would check first.
