Clicking is usually caused by your HDD (harddrive), system fan, or your CD/DVD drive as they are normally the only mechanical devices inside a computer. On a laptop it is common for the HDD to produce a clicking noise as it may have developed a fault whilst being moved. If you listen and it sounds like the HDD is clicking then you need to backup all of your data immediately and replace the HDD with a new one as the HDD could die at any time.
If it sounds like the fan is clicking then clean it and check there is no debris or cables hitting it.
If your CD/DVD drive is making the noise then replacing it should resolve the problem.
Hope this helps,

Has clicking noise on right pull wheel

Clicking noises from the drive wheel area usually means the gearbox on that side has a minor to a more severe issue. Call the place where you got the chair. I'm glad it's running and it could continue to run even with the clicking noise. It could be something as a loose hub nut on the wheel or something rubbing when you are making a turn.

Clicking sound near cambelt

It might be the idler pulley or automatic tensioner. When either one dries up, the bearing wears out and starts causing whistling or whining noises, might need replacing. Try replacing the cheapest one, the idler pulley to see if it stops. If not, it might be your belt tensioner.

Olympia Startype electric typewriter , make a funny noise and won't move carriage. Can not get it to work.

Turn it off and see if the carrier will move back and forth by hand if it will but feels a little gummy spray a little WD40 on the silver shafts that it slides on. If it won't move by hand look for debris in the carrier area.
