Hello!

I have experienced that kind of problem also I've open the cover of the Harddisk and I have found out that the disk reader is not aligned with the harddisk cylinder that is why I can hear a ticking noise every time I turn on my computer. Sadly I wasn't able to fix it because the reader is damage already. My advice to you is that, backup your files as soon as possible and buy a new harddisk because you might not be able to open your files from the damage harddisk once it gets very severe.

Hope I was able to help.

I have an 03 nissan altima engine makes loud clicking noise


1st check the the oil level and the vehicle's oil type.(owners manuel) 5w30-10w30
10w 30 is a thicker oil and could possibly be causing this.(Moves more freely through the engine heats the oil)

Beko DRCS68 condensor dryer is making loud vibration noises


hi there......when you replaced the drive belt you most likley disturbed the drum on its bearing seats (small plastic curved units) or indeed knocked 1 out altogeathrer...this would account for the loud bearing or metallic sound...it may also be the rear bearing these tend to eventually rund dry and fail..
