its not really a clicking and its coming from my computer and not my speakers. whats a fixed disk...like a hard drve? I replaced my Hard drive not too long ago. maybe about six months.
I would put my money on one of two things. It could be the fan blade or bearing of the little fan in the power-supply or the fan on the cpu - most likely cause is DUST. Most of us are bad at keeping the interior of our TOYS (That's Technical Operating Yunit where the Y is silent). Clean it with an artist brush or attachment which fits on your vacuum cleaner.
Next would be the bearing in the fixed disk. Very bad - EXPENSIVE in TIME and $$.
If you have a doctor's stethascope set it down carefllly in the center of the drive while the disk is seeking and listen for the clucking, clicking noise. If you don't have a stethascope, we can make one. Find a screwdriver with the longest blade you have. Next hold it so that the top of the handle is about 1/4 to 1/2 inch below your thumb and forefinger (first digit).
Set the point of the driver carefully on the disk and again listen.
I wish you luck in determining the problem. Either way, I feel you have two tasks. [A] BACK UP YOUR SYSTEM WITH A FULL BACKUP, [B] clean the interior of the computer case.

Yes Fixed disk refers to the Hard disk drive.
Is this a laptop by any chance?
