    There is a known issue with hp, toshiba and that range from a few years ago. Due to suffocation, the GPU gets too hot and unsolders itself. That causes all kinds of issues especially boot and VGA issues.

    If the clicking sound is coming from the hard drive, I think that could be the problem. Replace the hard drive and reinstall the OS. Copy your data over, if you haven't gotan up you haven't got an up to date backup.

    If you temove the dvd drive, does the clicking stop and will it boot?

    If it works without a dvd drive, look on flea bay and search for the drive, they are very innexpensive.

Car randomly wont turn on/bogs down and dies


Could be a bad engine ground connection. There should be a cable connected between the engine block and the frame. If this is loose, it could cause intermittent failure of your ignition and your starter to operate properly.

What could be the problem with LCD tv?


There is still a power leak and intermittent short on the circuit board. You did not get the entire board fixed. Check all diodes for polarity and openings. Test resistance values and look for any other unstable components.

If the squelch is on, there can't be a loud noise. Either the sqelch is completely off or you are not tuned to a station. NOAA broadcasts are continuous, not intermittent

I have a 1978 MGB..wont turn over..clicking sound..is that the starter motor?


Make sure your cables to the starter and battery are tight and clean. A good jump will test if the battery is the problem. Starters can become intermittent before they go totally bad. Corrosion on cables and connectors can interfere with voltage delivery. Start system needs really good battery connections and just having lights is not a good enough indication. A strong click and no spin usually means the connectors in the solenoid are not engaging or the brushes in the armature are worn out. A whimpy click usually means a bad connection or low battery.

Turn key and just get a click battery charged and all lights work just bought and started first two times took it home and next morning it wont start


Sounds like you may have a dead spot in the windings of your starter, replace the starter and that should fix your intermittent starting problems.....

Intermittent clicking of turn signal


these vehicles have a very common problem that allows the flasher to click even though the signal is not on.. this is an internal directional switch problem and can either be taken apart and cleaned or replaced to correct the problem...

Wont start


Sounds the starter is no good (sometimes they'll work intermittently for a while before they totally **** out). Of course it could just be a starter wiring problem (sending wire).
