Question about Dell Computers & Internet
I asked a question yesterday about how to find out why my computer makes such a loud screeching noise and the answers helped me find out that my hard drive had a bad blockage. How do i unblock or fix this issue?
If you mean the hard drive has logical errors then running chkdsk/f will fix that. If you mean the hard drive had physical errors, replace the hard drive.

SOURCE: loud clicking
You're going to have to narrow it down by removing components. Start by removing the hard drive, if the clicking stops then you know that it's a component that needs or uses the operating system. If it stops then put the hard drive back and remove other components, CD drive, keyboard, etc... until you can either locate exactly where it's coming from or it stops. The CD drive could be the culprit, and removing the keyboard will expose some of the inner workings so you can hear it better and possibly find what it is. This isn't a simple fix, it will take a little effort, but I believe you will find the problem, this is the exact same way that I would do it if you were to bring the computer to my shop.

Your microphone is on, and when you close the lid it is closer to the speaker. It needs
a loud noise (like closing the lid faster) and it enters into a feedback loop.
We need to find a way to make the microphone not play back.
Try left clicking on the speaker icon in the bottom right of the screen, and click playback
options. Here mute the microphone, and see if it solves your problem.

I think this problem stems further than just a hard drive issue, yes replacing the HDD works.... for awhile but if you leave it on for any lengthy period it will start up again. In My experience it has anyway. I think this may even be a heat issue as well, Im gonna order another hard drive from newegg and this time Ill run speed-fan along with it and see if that will remedy the problem, if it does i will share My experience here.

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive boot up
Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA
the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they are probably old and faulty ?
one bad lead will end with a computer error also run the chkdsk utility
