Internal fast clicking sound and VERY SLOW computer
There is a very fast clicking sound in my IBM T30, like it is downloading or upgrading almost all of the time. It is not a mechanical sound, i.e., not the fan. When it is happening (which is most of the time) my computer runs VERY slowly. In the rare time that the clicking stops, the computer runs at a decent pace. I am planning to upgrade the hard drive and RAM but I fear the problem will continue. Any idea what is causing the sound?

You go to the right, where it has the orange bar, and ->User manual IBM ThinkPad T30 - Install Guide, in it. Under this heading this is a PDF file icon. Under the icon it states -> Download the complete user guide (484 Ko) I clicked on it. It brings you to a page where you look at numbers that come tumbling down into 4 boxes. You type the numbers as they come tumbling down, one by one in the box on the right. (You'll see what I mean) After the 4 numbers have been typed into that box, you go below, and click on Download the users guide. I read their contract. You just use the down arrow on the right to scroll it down. From reading it, it looks legit. This is all I can tell you. I didn't download it, and don't know about it. Choice is yours now.
The first link on top I do know about. I downloaded it, and everything is fine. It's a Hardware Maintenance Manual, but may have some of the general user information you need.
User manual IBM THINKPAD T30 - Install Guide
1. You must have a processor compatible with motherboard, an Intel Pentium 4M 2.2GHz P/N 91P7209. 2. Download and read pages 81 to 86 and above from the Hardware Maintenance Manual: http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?sitestyle=lenovo&lndocid=MIGR-42308 3. Pay close attention to reinstall the fan assembly and apply thermal compound if necessary. 4. Re-assemble all the parts again by following the steps in reverse order of the manual.
NOTE: For future reference, your laptop will change to a 2366-FBx, M6x or 2367-FBx model depending on case.
Then go to the device manager (right-click "Computer", then click "Manage", select "Device Manager") Then browse for the sound driver in the tree menu to the right of the window. Right click the sound driver and click "Update Driver" You may have to manually browse for where the newly downloaded driver was installed (usually somewhere in the C: folder).
