Question about HP Pavilion dv9000z Notebook
I recently got a new HP Pavilion dv9700 notebook and it seems to be running fine. However, every so often I hear a clicking noise from the left side of the keyboard. It sounds to me like the dreaded hard drive click but I can't be sure. Seems to read and write fine to the hard drive. The sound happens sporadically and can't be re-produced. I'm wondering if this could also be the CPU fan clicking on/off?
Very unlikely that you are hearing any fan turn off and on since these are temperature controlled varable speed devices, not serviced by a relay that you can hear.
Some hard drives are audible even when working normally so that is not necessarily a sign of a dying drive.
Check your system settings to see if the drive is set to park and turn off too often.
I keep mine set at 30 minutes so it isn't cycling more than needed or running all the time.
