The clicking noise is the hard disk, (known as th click of death). This hard disk is faulty.
To get your Acer operating again, replace the hard drive, install Windows on the new hard drive, plus install the Acer notebook's device drivers and install your programs.

Download the drivers from the Acer WEB site.Make sure you select the model of your laptop and the XP or Vista version ofthe drivers you that require and it matches the Windows version that isinstalled on your laptop. Use this link to get to the Acer support: -

It sounds like your hard drive crashed. When a hard drive fails many times you can hear it clicking. You will need a replacement drive.

I hope this helps,

My lenovo laptop g580 wont boot even if camera and indicator lights are on


Sounds like a bad monitor or ram. Does the hard drive, fan etc make noise when first turning it on?

If there's noises indicating it's working, it's probably a hardware issue.

Wont boot and clicking noice


A clicking noise usually indicates a bad hard drive. Any eMachine is now very old (in computer years), with an obsolete operating system.

You should consider replacing rather than repairing.

Clicking noise when turning right


check your cv axles in the front end. they are basically your drive axles. the popping while turning is usually the outer boots on the axle shafts have torn and the grease inside the boots has ran out causing the shaft to be dry and click or pop when steering. usually you can replace the boot thats torn but it must be done within a few days of it tearing otherwise you will need to replace the axle shafts.

My van makes clicking noise when going uphill & and sometimes the speeds slows right down and makes noise (clicking under vehicle).


Could be front CV axles making that noise. Check out the rubber cv boots going from the transmission to the center of the front wheels, If the boots are ripped or cracked, replace the cv axles on both sides.
