Question about Acer Aspire 5100-3357 Notebook
When I turn on my laptop, after a few minutes (or occasionally right away, even on the start-up screens) it will make a weird clicking noise and then freeze.
I even tried reformating my computer, which didn't help (and during a few times, the computer even did the click noise and froze when it was in the re-activation process), and the problem still persisted.
Anyone know what to do?
Laptops have very few moving parts. Your problem is more than likely either a fan or your hard drive. Remove the hard drive, start the computer up and just let it run for awhile. If the clicking noise never comes up then thats your problem. If it does, its probably a fan.
Disregard anything on the screen itself, just let the PC run. It sounds like after the hard drive has been spinning for a minute a motor starts to die.
