Ticking noise coming from mb
hi Jim:) this sounds more like the HD because ticking is more commonly associated with it than w/the motherboard. also fans get noisy as the bearings wear out...usually a
"ticking" (if it is a fan) indicates something interfering with the
blades? (dust bunny etc) a noisy hard drive is a warning sign to make sure any data you value is
backed up because "noisy" hard drives can become paper weights any time. there is also a fan in the power supply(PSU) that could be a source of noise.as for the motherboard...there is nothing on the board that would make noise as there are no moving parts. of course none of this explains why you cannot get to the p.o.s.t which is usually the result of a fried mother board,processor and/or the PSU. you could try replacing these things one at a time w/a startup attempt after each one but after many years of servicing computers my instinct tells me it's *********** board because this is what's most common. sorry i don't have better news for you but i hope this helps and if you need anything else just ask:)

My CPU freezes a random times or when i reset it,
it could be your graphics card going, before purchasin a new 1, check that all your fans are working and that your cpu cooling fan or heatsink has not come loose. those type of problems cause the computer to shut down because of overheat. last but not least your hard drive can be going bad and its hitting bad sectors causing it to shut down or freeze.

Be aware that you should only Update your BIOS when it is only your last resource, that means when you are having problems with your BIOS, because if the BIOS get corrupted you wont be able to fix it and your computer may become unusable.
If after reading this you still want to update it, all you have to do is visit the motherboard manufacturer website and look for an updated version of your BIOS, there you will find everything you need to know.
If you need to know anything else just ask, i'll help you with pleasure.
