Question about HP Pavillion s7420n PC Desktop
A methodical rhythmic clicking sound could be coming from the hard drive as it is having trouble reading a particular sector.
I would highly recommend that you backup your data and replace the hard drive.
How, if possible, open up the side of the computer and when the clicking starts, lay your palm/fingers on the side of the hard drive to see if you can "feel" the clicking to either confirm or not that the noise is coming from the hard drive.
