Question about Apple Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger for Mac
I was using my mac the other night and I was online and all of a sudden this weird and loud clicking noise started from inside the computer. The screen froze and the rainbow wait sign started going.. it stayed like that for a while and I couldn't get out of Safari like normal so I just shut it down. I started it back up and it started immediatly making that clicking noise and the screen was grey and a question mark kept popping up.. What is going on? I looked in my manual and none of the procedures listed in there helped at all and now my startup disk is stuck in the drive.
It sounds like a motherboard firmware or driver problem...if the computer lets you get back into the operation system...try downloading the proper drivers....i would find them if i knew what kind of motherboard you have....i'm not sure how to find that out on a mac...sorry.

Just try restarting the system in safe mode by holding down the Shift key while restarting the machine and check if the issue replicates in safe mode too. it may take quite a while for the system to boot in safe mode(Depending on the cache on the system)
