Question: HP Ultrabook Folio1040 Clicking Sound

I have recently purchased a new HP Ultrabook Folio1040. After few days of use I noticed I could hear a clicking noise comming from my laptop, this noise you can only hear if the room is silent. any idea ?

I have replaced a new Sandisk 256 gb SSD hard drive with 128 ssd. is it normal to hear this sound ? speakers are on mute.

but sound only comes when I move my laptop ...when it is on flat surface the sound sometimes stops sometimes keep coming slowly. Thanks in advance.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: HP Ultrabook Folio1040 Clicking Sound

Does the "click" sound only happen when you are moving the mouse or scrolling the wheel or anything (Basically, doing anything on the computer?)

If so the processor could just have a small click sound coming as it's processing, I've noticed this with a few system but most don't do it.

You say it has an SSD and not a HDD, so it shouldn't be the hard drive making the noise as there's no physical parts moving, it operates similarly to RAM. Otherwise I would see if it sounds like it's coming from where the Fan is.

Hi,  Recently got a HP Folio 1040 G2 as my work PC. It is running Windows 7 Enterprise 64 bit. It has the Forcepad/Touchpad. While typing, it appears to recognize a mouseclick on the Forcepad, which causes the cursor to move to wherever the cursor is; typically several sentences back from where I was typing. I switched to a mouse and used function+f2 to disable the touchpad, but it still has the forcepad active (can't move the cursor with my finger on the touchpad, but pressure on the pad acts as a click) and therefore the jumping cursor problem still exists. It there any fix to this or at least away to disable the Forcepad completely?

Hello,  My laptop is about a year old.  First the sound worked sporadically and I could restart my computer. Now, it never works. I can go into Device Manager and "disable" and "enable" sound but it's only a temporary fix -- for about 10 minutes. My sound is working -- I can hear when I test the speakers but I can't hear a thing if I play anything with sound or do a video call. This is a huge problem as I do a lot of video calls for my business.    Including the amount of time I'm spending on trying to fix it. If anyone can shed some light on this, I'd be very appreciative.  Thank you!  Windows 8Model: C2K72UA

Sorry for my late reply. Needed to handle pressing issues, like work, lol. Thanks for that.  I did do all of that and no luck. I finally acquiesced and accepted the Win update to 8.1. After doing all of that, it appears that my sound has returned. I'm not feeling confident though because this sporadic sound issue has occurred before. I always seem to lose the sound right before an important video call. GRR! I appreciate your time very much -- thank you, I am okay for now.

My Y50 had the left speaker clicking sound and muffled sound from day one (last month) March 2015After much time and pain I worked out the problem was the cooling fins next to the cooling fans were flexing and I presume touching the left speaker wire which runs along under neath the cooling fins. I could get the clicking sound to happen every time if I applied a small amount of pressure on the cooling tubes that sit on top of the cooling fins.I then placed a small piece of cardboard on the left side under the cooling fins to raise them only about 2 mm and this has fixed the problem. no more damm clicking sound and muffled sound Hey Lenovo fix you effin Y50 laptop !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hello,
I just bought the Y50 yesterday with the GTX 960M. Unfortunatly i noticed while playing that the left speaker started to do a clicking noise, in addition the sound became muffled. When i tilt the laptop the problem is resolved i.e. the clicing stops and the sound returns to normal. After a few minutes the same problem returns until i tilt the laptop or lift it again.
Please help.

I have bought a new lenovo y700 gaming laptop 80NV0028US. Straight out of the box, it is making a periodic clicking noise every second. When this clicking noise happens, the sound gets muffled as if sound from speakers is blocked and only the subwoofer is working. This happens when the laptop is kept flat on  a table. Frankly this is very irritating and something I do not expect from a laptop that cost me $1K.

Answer:lenovo y700 sound blocked and clicking sound

Have same problem and also closing lid without a full shutdown gives random crap results when you open and laptop wakes. Disabled touch pad, disabled keyboard, disabled touch screen, disabled WiFi, disabled sound.. With the price, shouldn't have to gamble on what will be off each time I close and open the lid and will be off or on at restart!

Answer:popups, sound issues and clicking sound

Welcome to MajorGeeks, tm920

Is Drive G bootable or for storage?

Do you have all important data backed up? You really should do this before continuing since we will need to rewrite your MBR to fix this and while most times this can be done without any problem, these infections can react badly and that could result in a PC not being bootable. You really don't have much choice though since these infections are too dangerous to your security to leave on a PC.

Also note if you have a Dell PC which uses a non-standard MBR ( or another manufacturer's who does similar to Dell) , fixing the mbr may prevent access the the Dell Restore Utility, which allows you to press a key on startup and revert your computer to a factory delivered state. There are a couple of known fixes for said condition, though the methods are somewhat advanced. If you are unwilling to take such a risk, you should not continue but you risk serious problems leaving this infection in place and thus your only other option would be to try using the Dell Restore Utility to return a factory ship state which will remove everything you additional you have put onto the PC.

Question: Clicking sound

Why has my Pc suddenly started making clicking sounds when I press the mouse and when each piece of info appears on a web page???

Answer:Clicking sound

to activate a sound (WAV File) for a operation on the PC. E.g when you recieve a email you usually get tune or when shutting down windows you can also get a Loggoff tune.Different PC's some by defualt or some set by how you personally want them to react with there very own tune or noise.Sop say you want a certain tune or noise to play when you open a programme you can tell windows to play this when you carry out the task.All this is done in the Control Panel in the "Sounds" Icon or possibly Multimedia & sounds, depandant which Windows you have.In there you will see the commands and below you will see the type of Audio WAV file/Tune or noise you can set to that command.So it sounds like a Wav file tune or sound has been set to react to your Mouse. It could also be set via any 3rd party Mouse software if it supports these.It doesn't seem to be a problem you have, may be you have just got XP and are new to it.

Question: Clicking sound

I really wasn't sure where to post this. For a while now, I have been hearing this clicking sound. It is the same clicking sound you hear when you open a folder, however I am NOT opening one. It happens every now and then.

I don't know if this is virus related, something in the background, what. I tried googling it but couldn't fine as most results were about harddrive clicking. To be clear, the sound is NOT coming from the tower. It is the folder opening sound and it comes from my speakers (or headphones).

I recently had some trojan problems a while back but they were cleared up via several programs and I was told everything was fine, but the sound persists which is why I don't know what this is related to. It isn't exactly a major issue, but it concerns me.

Hello,

I have a frequent clicking sound, as if an action has been initiated. I can leave the computer idle and it will click every now and then (no pattern whatsoever).

I can solve this problem by muting, however there is also a problem with loosing my pointer. I am having a hard time explaining this, however as I write this message I constantly loose my blinking prompt. I then have to move my pointer and reactivate and then I can continue to type. It is like while I am typing, something else it initiated as if I clicked on something else.

Sorry that I can not explain this better, but does anyone happen to know what is going on here?

Thanks, sk

I just identified this sound as being related to the "Start Navigation". I changed the sound and now I am hearing the new sound constantly and without any keyboard input.

While on my computer I keep hearing the clicking sound you get when you are surfing the internet and clicking on something. But I am not clicking on anything. It is also causing me to lag when I play certain games. I recently switched modems and got a wireless modem, could that be the problem?

If you need anymore information, just ask and Ill try my best to supply it.



Shoot, Can someone move this to Internet Explorer?

It's caused by your browser refreshing. Might be some sort of spyware causing it like one click. Maybe ccleaner will help.

I have an X61 with a Seagate ST9120822AS 120GB hard drive(came with the machine) that functions fine but makes a lot of clicking noises.  This only happens when the machine is on battery mode so I'm guessing this is a settings problem.  Is there some kind of setting that I use to quiet the HD down in batterymode?  Thanks!

that sound is when the hdd make when it is parking and stopping the hdd all the time, this can be reduced by preventing the hdd from shutting down in battery mode, and switching the sensitivity of the accelerometer to low in the control panel under thinkvantage active protection system.

Answer:Clicking sound

When you turn your sound down do you still hear it? If no then it might be an interference problem. Do you use a sound card or on board? Try moving the sound as far away from the video card slot as possible (assuming you're not using on brd video).

Hello,

My son has a 333MHZ machine with an integrated SB16 sound card to the motherboard. It sounded lousy so I added a creative labs 512 and I changed his 32 meg ram with a 128 stick. It worked fine initially with windows 98 but his computer has always been plagued with locking up and shuting down so I intalled win98SE over the 98 and I have had a sound problem ever since. I have even formatted the C drive and reinstalled win98SE then I downloaded updated drivers from the internet for the Cm8330.sys audio adapter and Sm8330SB. It took several attempts to find one that worked but I have both sound card drivers working fine with the SB16 disabled and I even disabled it in the Bios. I have tried every combonation of off,on and disabled. What happens is the computer boots up and works fine but what ever sound was the last sound to be triggered is played in countinuos and repetative short burts. This includes the initial windows sound. THis never stops and starts out with a low base tone from first boot up. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Answer:MOBO Clicking sound

Hello and welcome cubbybear now mate if you think you have wrecked the PSU then any clicking noise would be coming from within that unit. The other thing you mention is the multiple beeping sounds and that is usually a BIOS warning system thing ie one beep is the norm for a RAM that is ok two for whatever the problem may be - see this for an example
Computer POST and beep codes

Now I have to tell you I have not been in 10 for that long and the system may be a lot different to 7 which I have been using for the last few years and when any problems are suspected with the PSU I get folks to use this ditty of mine so lets get this out of the way first because PSU problems are far more prevealant than is often thought of.
Using HW Info
PART A:
You can test the volts on the PSU with HW Info HWiNFO, HWiNFO32/64 - Download < download the right bit version and close the right hand window select Sensors and scroll down to the power section where you will see what the volts are doing see my pic. In my pic the section (Nuvoton) with VBATT is a dead give away you are in the section for the rail voltages. There are other section titles and one that pops up often is ITE
Now the voltage on the different rails have to be within 5% =+/- of what is required or the machine will not work properly if at all.
Limits +/-
12v = 11.4 ? 12.6v
5v = 4.74 ? 5.25v
3.3v = 3.135 ? 3.465v
The Power good signal voltage at pin 8 on the 24 pin plug (grey cable) should be the same as the 5v rail... Read more

I recently had my computer in the shop. The end result was a pair of new Hard drives in a mirrored RAID and a fresh install. Files from 2 old computers were dropped into folders on my Desk top. Now I have the Box home, and have connected up the speakers. They are not working. I've tried reinstalling the drivers, and even gotten a "magic fix it all program" called RegCure. It won't seem to work. I have tried headphones, and I get no sound. If I go to my sounds and Audio Devices Properties, and play the Asterisk, I get get the faintest 2 tone click. If I play the Critical Battery Alarm, I get a sick sounding double pulse. Default beep- Exclamation all make nothing, Exit Windows makes a click on the left, 2 on the right, and a click on the left again. So, in short, I know the speakers can make sound, but the computer is sending all the wrong information. Just prior to posting this, I went back to Creative, and got the drivers again and reinstalled them. Now, after the required reboot, I have absolutely no sound.

This is a Sound Blaster Audigy 2ZS card, but I'm trying this card out of frustration once my other card had the same problem. It also is a SB card (SB0460), but isn't installed right now. Of course, when I check my device properties, I'm told everything is working properly.

I'm hearing that windows explorer button click sound recurring about every 5 seconds. Constantly. You know, the little mouse click sound that plays whenever you hit the back button on your browser or whatever. Well it's clicking by itself, as if something is running in the background.

Anyhow, it's annoying and I have seen one or two people complain about similar problems. I'm looking into some posted solutions from other threads, but i thought it'd be a good idea to make a new thread specific to my problem.

Whenever i start my computer & everything comes on(i.e. all the icons are displayed & the Norton AntiVirus(2007) bar comes on), if I attempt to open the Internet Explorer(version 7.0) browser, it keeps closing !!! Also in the background I hear a clicking sound, its a sound similar to the one we get when we say refresh a page in the browser. At the advice of a senior member, I did CTRL+ALT+DEL, & made sure no Applications were running & then in the Processes tab, clicked on the CPU column & it showed 2 processes were at the top :System Idle Process & iexplore.exe The iexplore.exe process shows up in the Windows Task Manager processes tab, even though i haven't opened the IE browser !! Strange !! Also every time the process iexplore.exe goes to the top of the CPU column, I hear the clicking sound.Till the last 2 days, this clicking sound & the IE browser closing was happening only for the first 3-4 minutes, when I started the computer, but now its occurring sometimes after 3-4 hours also : I hope this problem won't worsen :-(I have an e-Machines T2958 model 80GB hard disk 512MB RAM running Windows XP Professional SP2 with Internet Explorer version 7.0.5730.11 as my browser. I ran Norton Anti-Virus 2007, AVG 7.0, AdAware 2007, Spybot Search & Destroy scans : all came out clean. I hope somebody could help me out before this problem worsens !!Thanx in advance.:-)

I know this is a dumb issue., But you know that clicking sound you get when you're surfing the internet? It's the sound you hear when you click on a link or when a new page is going to open. For some reason, I can't hear that sound anymore. Amd yes, I made sure my volume wasn't all the way down!

Hey

I got an FE11S two days ago and this morning I heard a clicking sound that started for no apperent reason and would happen every 30 seconds roughly - it happened 5 or 6 times then I restarted the laptop (as I was trying to sleep and clicking noises are annoying in that situation!).

I has not occured since then, although before it started it had been on for about 14 hours (plugged in of course!).

I am guessing the harddrive and processor are at the front of the laptop as that is where the most heat is and where it sounds like the harddrive is when I can hear it, but this sound was coming from the back near the battery or speakers.

It may have been from the speakers themselves but it could have been from something else (although the speakers were muted on the laptop when it happened).

I phoned Sony and they said if it happens again let them know which I will so what could it be? any ideas? I hope it is just a one off dodgy PC momment as I would hate to have a serious problem on a new laptop! By the way everything is and was working perfectly there is no obvious problem with anything the PC is doing just that clicking sound which happened for a few mins before I restarted it.

Hi,

I have a strange problem. I have an Acer laptop with a Western Digital Hard Drive. I like the computer, however, when I shut the computer down it turns off and then makes a subsequent click sound. This sound is made when everything is seemlingly shutdown.

I thought it may have been a faulty hard drive but I tested this with Seatools and there is no problem. The sound also seems to be coming from the top right hand section of the computer near where the CD/DVD drive is located. The click sound is only made on shutdown and the CD/DVD drive has only been used a couple of times and when this sound is made it has nothing in it.

Is it normal for this to be happening? Is my computer just shutting down a component? I'm thinking because it's under warranty I may take it for repair. Does it need repair though?

Please note the clicking sound is never made at any other times.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you also for having me on this forum.

Kind regards,

Panda Bear

Answer:Clicking Sound after Shutdown

Would you say it is a mechanical clicking sound or more of a speaker clicking sound?

If it the speaker I would not worry about it, if mechanical it might be the hard drive but since you have tested it with the hard drive tools I would not be too bothered about it unless you start having problems with program loading etc.

You might want to run the drive check utility for your drive. Right click on the drive then go to tools then click on error checking, tick both boxes and reboot and let the computer scan the disk for any problems.

Get back to us if you find any problems.

Hi,Wondering if you could help....I did a fresh install of XP and have an additional HD (Seagate Barracuda 7200.8 internal HD). When I did the fresh install, i made sure the HD was unplugged. So then I got it all sorted and plugged in the HD. Since the install, my computer BSOD'ed a few times, but i fixed that. Unfortunately, since it happened, my computer is not recognising my HD (and is running pretty noisily and overheating too!). I'm pretty sure the HD is on it's way out, but I have some really important docs on it which I need. Can anyone give any advice as to how to get it worked for about 20 minutes or so (at the least) to get my stuff from it?! Thanks

Answer:HDD Not recognised, clicking sound?

Stop using the drive immediatelyThe best method for this is hooking it up as a slave drive but you need to have everything prepared ahead of time because in some cases you will get ONLY ONE chance.Make sure the other drive has enough room for the large file transfers needed...trying to burn them instead of transferring them takes more time and improves the chance of it failing.If it has been doing this awhile i'd suggest placing the drive in a Ziploc bag in the freezer for a few hours...this has been known to improve the read/write mechanisms running long enough to get the data off.As i said be well prepared ahead of time and Good Luck.

Hi guys, so I looked around to see if this was a common problem and didn't see much on it so apologize if it's been discussed before. My brother got a Y410p in January and since day 1 there has been a clicking from the top left of the laptop body (keyboard) best we can tell, which we assume is from the fan. It is quite loud. Turning off the speakers and muting the sound did not solve the problem at all which led us to believe it was not the speakers. It generally doesn't generally happen when watching youtube but does happen every time when playing any games at all. I assume this is a problem with the fan not working correctly under some stress? That'd be great if there is a fix we can do ourselves other than sending it in but any help or experience with the problem would be greatly appreciated.

When a sound plays on the computer, it makes a funny clicking noise at the end of it almost like it has got stuck- The problem can be temporary solved by changing the audio settings but when you log off and back on the problem still persists.

Any ideas?

Does it on several different machines!

Answer:Clicking sound at end of audio

More info is needed for someone to try and help you. Fill in the My System Specs so we know what hardware you are having the problem with. You say several different machines, are they all the same hardware or different? Also, is this with ANY audio file or only certain ones or types? Also with any media player?

Hi Techsupport

I recently was browsing the internet when I noticed how laggy and chalky my internet was. I turned on the volume and every few minutes I would hear the clicking sound your computer makes when you click on a link. But I was not clicking on anything. I went on my task manager and to see if another user was still logged on but I was the only one on. I then checked my applications and saw something called www DOT kkexe.com or something like that. I noticed that it was running through IE. Which I found was odd because I was using FireFox at the time.

I noticed a strange clicking sound coming from my G550. It's not very frequent, though  I usually only notice it when it's quiet in the room. It's a single clicking sound occurring (as far as I know)  several times a day. I thought it was connected to the fan, because I usually notice it only when the fan is stopped and the computer is silent,  but a Google search suggests it can also be the hard drive. Has anyone else also noticed something like it? Can it be a sign of some problem or is it just some minor annoyance? Apparently, there is nothing wrong with the computer, so I'm not too worried, but I'd like to know the reason of this sound.

Answer:Strange clicking sound

This is usually HDD seek noise - can be heared during defrag/indexing/seek/copy process.it's not a thing to be aware of. However if you feel uncomfortable you can use WinAAM to reduce the noise.

Hey there, just bought my G550 and love it to bits, but there's this very annoying (though very faint) clicking sound coming from the left bottom side of the keyboard. It clicks all the time, in regular intervals and sounds like a watch (pls don't laugh). It's very very faint but still manages to annoy me very much and I worry if it's something that is supposed to be there, or not? Any other laptop I had before was much noisier, but never made this kind of sound. Thanks in advance for any advise.

So my brother's video card is making a clicking sound that increases in frequency the more demanding the needs on it...when minimal use, no clicking (aka, right now on net). Playing Warcraft it starts clicking and when I do an ATI stress test it clicks like crazy, almost a continuous sound at that point.

Here is where it gets odd...it's not the fan. I turn it off or just hold it so that its not spinning and the clicking is unchanged. BTW, I know its the card, swap cards and there is no clicking.

Any ideas what else it could be? I've pulled it apart, cleaned it out, changed the thermal paste...nothing. BTW, there was a ton of hair in it, he and his GF now have 3 cats and he has no filters on his fans.

He bought it off craigslist 6 months or so back so no receipt for warranty at EVGA. The performance seems to be ok, its the OC version and in ATI seems to run fine without further OCing, no artifacts after 10min. But the clicking is noisy and annoying.

Answer:8600gts clicking sound...not fan

Have you tried using another card? Honestly if it still click w/o the fan running I would bet the clicking is coming from something else. There are no other moving parts on a video card that could possibly be making a clicking sound - or one loud enough to hear. Are you sure it isn't something else? Try another video card just to make sure.

If it truely is the card, you've already done everything you can do - clean it out, ensure nothing is blocking the fan, etc. Deal with the sound until the card dies, then buy a new one. That would be my only suggestion.

Okay, I was just practicing some programming after I played on online game. For at least 20 minutes, I heard a single "click" sound and my PC hanged. I restarted the PC and the click sound happened again after selecting my user in Windows XP. A few second later, the PC hanged.

This click sound is not from the speakers. When starting in safe mode, everything seems fine. I decided to chkdsk on both my drives. Normal chkdsk and defragmentation operations worked smoothly on both drives. However, once I did a "thorough" scan (check for bad sectors) on the second hard drive (the first one is finished with the bad sector scan), at 71% of step 1 the click sound hit and the PC hanged...

Does this mean my HDD is dying?

On my old pc when I used to click on a link I used to get a click sound as the page turned. On my new laptop I don't get it. I have heard it on rare occasions. How do I get this clicking sound back or can't i?
Thanks

Answer:Where is the clicking sound of a web-page turning?

charlton200
Volume control?
Also, I noticed that if you scroll-click (to open a link in a new tab) it doesn't make the characteristic click either.
In fact, as I left-click the link to get to this post, I notice I actually get 3 separate clicks as the page loads.

My computer has started to make clicking sounds...again! I bought a new PSU because of this yet the sounds remain (beforehand I was running 2 hard drives, a dvd/cd burner and a hard drive cooler on a 130W PSU so I thought it was time to upgrade to a 480W Antec). Ive taken the cooler out but the sound still pops up on occassion... always the two clicks together?People have said it could be the new PSU switchable supply making the noise, yet it was exactly the same sound when I had the old PSU which didnt have any fancy features like that. Ill try taking my extra hard drive out as well for a while to see if that makes a difference, as it could be that. Does anyone know if a hard drive that hasnt been defragmented in a fair while can also make these sounds? Or if it generally means its on its way out? Its unlikely mine is faulty though as its pretty new. What about the possibility (now this may be far fetched) that the motherboard (cheap VIA job from Time Computers) cant cope with such a load or heavyweight PSU running a pc for extended periods each day? Thanks for any info on my questions or any other help if anyone can!

Answer:clicking sound coming from pc tower.. somewhere?!!

If you have made sure there no loose wires, cable ties etc catching on a fan, then you could try and unplug everything exceptvga and 1 hard drive. Then if you still get the clicking, I would suggest that you have a noisy drive, might not be breaking down, just noisey. If that is the case, then personally I would change it an be on the safe side.

I just bought an HP pavillon p7-1240 desktop from Best Buy, and it's hard drive makes a little "clicking sound". Maybe im being too sensitive about the sound, but it's really annoying and i realised that it's really louder than other desktops. My mother's Acer desktop and my laptop barely have this sound. Is there anything i can do to solve this or do i have to send it to warranty?

Answer:hard drive "clicking" sound

Hi As i see you have two option. 1) Just update the Bios, Graphic & Chipset on the unit and see the sound goes off. 2) Or you could call HP Technical support and get the part replaced.

I opened my brand new lenovo y580 just yesterday and out of the box, the fan makes this slight clicking noise. It sounds like its hitting something inside the machine. It has to be the fan because as airflow and computational stress increases on the computer the clicking becomes louder and higher in frequency. Is this a normal occurrence? Is that how the mechanism is supposed to work? I would venture to say that it isn't because the fan is louder than my 4 year old 17" gaming laptop as a result of the clicking. I also found somebody on youtube with several videos describing the same problem. I called lenovo and arranged a return but I would also like to know what others might know about this. I feel bad sending back a perfectly good laptop because of that minor issue but its going to bug me and give me buyers remorse if I don't. Also I don't want the fan to work improperly because that will cause more overheating than should be occurring. Please let me know if there is a simple fix, if you have the same problem, or just have some general input. 

Answer:y580 clicking sound coming from fan

welcome to the community!
 
there should be no "clicking" mechanical sound coming from the fan on a brand new machine. other than replacing the fan, there is no "simple" fix, imo.

I have an external HDD assembled using a 3.5" 1 TB SATA internal HDD and a casing. The unit was powered by the casing adapter and all worked fine until we had a power fluctuation and after that, the drive was not detected and kept creating clicking sounds.

Going through various suggestions posted on the net, I tried freezing, heating, tapping and everything else there was to do, but to no avail. The clicking continued and the drive would not be recognized.

To avoid fluctuations, I had removed the casing & adapter and had connected this HDD directly to an SMPS, but the clicking went on. However, as I connected another PATA external HDD to the molex connector of the SMPS, the first HDD's clicking came to a halt and the HDD came to life. All drives are now visible in Windows and I'm in the process of backing up the data.

Whenever the PATA HDD is disconnected from the SMPS, the SATA HDD gets disconnected and starts clicking again. This is the weirdest thing I've ever encountered and have no clue what's making this happen. Why is the presence of another HDD connected to the SMPS making the SATA HDD not work ??? Has anyone else come across a similar situation or have any solution ???

Answer:Weird HDD Behaviour and Clicking Sound !!!

Which enclosure?
Do all the drives work perfectly when plugged in to your PC?

If so, it sounds like the power brown/outage might have damaged your enclosure and you should probably RMA it.

Hi, I have a very specific question. Lately, the 'Start Navigation' sound has been playing not only when I open folders on Windows 7, as usual, but also each time I save a Word document or basically do any kind of file creation/modification task (such as changing mp3 id tags, for instance). I know that this is not malware because I keep my antivirus and antimalware programs up to date and I'm the only one with access to this computer.In fact, and this is the interesting part, I downloaded Process Monitor and created a new filter that would exclusively monitor programs that used the 'Start Navigation' sound. And what did I find? Well, it's Windows Explorer that's causing that annoying clicking. Specifically, these four operations in this exact order: 'Create File', 'QueryStandardInformationFile', 'QueryBasicInformationFile', and 'CloseFile'. These four operations run through Explorer.EXE each time I create or modify files and save my progress (like I said, with any program, such as saving a .doc file with Word, an mp3 tag with Tag&Rename, etc.), and they unfailingly cause the 'Start Navigation' clicking sound to play.Anyway, this is different from other posts I've read on these forums because the pattern is very clear, and it's not just some random thing caused by an undesired program.

Hey guys.

Recently purchased a Gainward GTX 570 Phantom. When I start the computer up it makes a strange "clicking" noise. There are no loose cables or anything...+the gainward phantom fans are covered anyway!. I tried replacing its slot from pcie_1 to pcie_2 and same thing occured.

When I first bought it made the sound for about 30 mins. After I installed drivers and unistalled old AMD drivers and the let the computer run for a bit, the noise stopped.

However when I start the computer up now, for about the first minute I hear the same clicking noise>

I want to ask if is this something to be concerned about? Do some fans just sometimes make weird noises while "warming up"? I used GPU-Z and fan speeds+temp. seem perfect.

(P.S I have warranty, but I already had to RMA my last KFA2 GTX 570 and replace it with this last week, so unless its a potentially bad thing I dont really want to RMA it.)
 

Answer:GPU makes Clicking Sound On Startup

Well its not a normal sound so you definitely need to be concerned. There may be something in one of the fans or one of the fans may be faulty. Or it may be a power issue.

What is the brand, model, and wattage of your power supply?

I have removed your HJT log so we can explore other causes first. If malware is indicated someone will direct you to the proper forum.
 
Please provide more details about what you mean by hearing a clicking sound when on the internet. Is it a constant click? Does it only occur when doing certain things, such as clicking a link or going back or forward? What have you done to try to determine the cause of the clicking?
 
There are many things which can cause a clicking sound. We need to determine if it is something simple like normal Windows sounds or a failing hard drive, dusty fan, or other hardware related problem.

The problem:
1. A friend told me he was sent spam mail about insurances from my hotmail account. I assume the account has been hacked. EDIT: I can now confirm someone has sent spam from my hotmail, it can be seen in my "sent" folder in hotmail. I changed the password for now.
2. I also have a strange clicking sound which I think may be related.

The details:
My hotmail account is still accessible from my original password, I just checked. However, in fear of a key logger I wrote down the alphabet in a notepad doc, then copy-pasted individual letters into the password area. Not sure if this was smart or not, it seemed ok.

Apparently I've (according to my friend) sent the spam to all my contacts in my contact list.

Regarding the clicking sound: it's the same click sound you hear when you click a web link. It plays every 5 seconds once it starts, even if I close down all processes in the task manager. It does however not start every day. I noticed it a week ago or more and has not heard it since. Goggling it showed virus-related results.

Important!
Since this is my computer at work, I'd like to test this one first. But the problem may very well be on my computer at home. Should I start another thread for my home computer?

clicking means something catching on it or a bearing failing - sometimes you can peel back the label and there may be a small hole where you can put a drop of thin oil.

Hello everyone, im hoping for some help about my external. I bought last year a 3 TB WD my book because my old one was making weird sound and i thought to make back ups. After i passed everything on the new external most of the stuff i did the mistake to delete from the old.
The other day i had my external on the couch and connected to my laptop, not doing something in the time, i went to make a coffee and in that time my 2 cats were playing and dropped it on the floor , on the fluffy carpet ! Im writing all the details because im not good with these stuff and i dont know what can be important.
Anyways, since then the external when connected to laptop makes a clicking sounds. It shows on devices, it shows down right for safely removal but not as letter! And i have used a couple recovery programs (minitool partition wizard, PC inspector) and it shows the Disk without partitions as 0GB.

I really need to find a way to recover somehow at least the pictures that i have in the external. Someone told me that it might be that the needle has stucked and it cant spin. I have already opened the case and took the external out but im too afraid to open it and try to fix it alone.

Does anyone know what can be done or what the problem could be?
I would appreciate ANY help. Thank you

Answer:WD My Book 3TB clicking sound after drop

It sounds like a "head crash" (there is no "needle"). There is really nothing "user serviceable" in a drive. Depending on how it crashes whether or not you can retrieve data from it. There are companies that can retrieve data from a crashed disc but the cost is $800 and up.

For reasons such as this, NEVER have your data, such as pictures, on one media only. At least two separate media copies are needed, then if one fails for whatever reason you still have the other. This is also a reason for backups, not for "if" they are ever needed but "when" its needed.

SAS and Spybot are both antispyware and you should not use them both.

Make sure to uninstall Spybot then try making a full scan on SAS and Mbam alternately after updating both security softwares.

Hi there folks. Saw some similar problems on other posts, but not the exact problem I have.

My sound plays fine through my speakers for CD's and MP3's etc, providing I do nothing else on the PC. As soon as I start navigating around with the mouse, opening files, scrolling windows, and clicking links in the browser, then I start to get a ticking / clicking sound from my speakers.

I have an onboard Sound Card, and a PCI sound card, no matter which one I enable or disable, they both do it.

Yes, I know that Apple makes iTunes, but my problem is on a Windows OS, so it goes here.

A few days ago while listening to music, I noticed a strange popping sound that sounds similar to either 1. a corrupted track or 2. speakers not making a good connection or having a static burst

I have so far checked:

1. Audio port on back of computer via audacity and headphones (good)
2. Audio port on back of computer via audacity and speakers (good)
3. iTunes via speakers with headphones plugged into speakers' headphone jack (bad)
4. iTunes via port on bad of computer via headphones (bad)
5. Speakers via ipod (good)

Basically, I have isolated the problem to iTunes causing these random clicking noises. I reinstalled iTunes, so I doubt it is a corrupt installation.

Could this just be another one of the many bugs in iTunes 9.0.2 or something that is fixable?

I would appreciate any input on this as I really don't feel like going out and buying a new set of speaekrs or something like that :/

Answer:Popping/ Clicking Sound on iTunes

Okay, guys I really need your help on this. Today I reformatted my computer for other reasons, also hoping that this would be solved, but it wasn't. To my dismay, I heard my speakers popping every once in a while. The best way to describe it is a faint static-ish sound every once in a while, not even when I am listening to music. I resigned that my speakers were at fault so I dragged out an old set of speakers and I hear THEM pop as well.

What on earth is going on? I even plugged them into the audio port on the FRONT of my computer. Is my room bugged by the FBI or something?

Hi all. This is my first time here. I recently purchased Altec Lansing speakers for my Dell D620 laptop. I have the laptop connected to a port replicator whenever I am home. The computer runs WinXP, SP 2 (I think). I have both RealPlayer and Windows Media Player installed, but mostly use RealPlayer because it is also set up on my Palm.

Whenever I plug the speakers in I get a clicking sound in the background. It's not too noticable when music is playing, but if I close RealPlayer, or even between songs, it is very distracting. I've tried plugging the speakers into both the port replicator and directly into the laptop, with no change.

I assume this is a problem with either the plug from the speakers or the port on the computer/port replicator. I've thought about cutting off the plug from the speakers and replacing it with a gold coated one, but before I start cutting stuff I thought I should check to see if there is another solution.

Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks.
