Tower clicks

by jojothemutt / April 8, 2004 1:09 AM PDT

The past couple days Ive been having strange things happen, my tower I guess you call it clicks, snaps, knocks, whatever you want to call it. Why?
I stresses me out, it starts doing it and it sounds like its gonna snap. Sometimes if I reboot itll stop, other times it keeps doing it.
Can any one help me here.
Thanks, Jojo

Take the panel off and look inside. See what is causing the noise.

Could be something caught in one of the fans. A bug? Probably dead. Sad

Hard drives that are going bad or that have errors can make clanking sounds or ones like you described. do a thorough scandisk to check.
