Since i installed windows 7 my tower started just randomly making that click/tick noise it makes just as your shutting it down or booting it up, the case doesnt restart, just get this weird click noise, in explicable really, just started happening since i updated from 7 and ive no idea if its my PSU or mobo showing signs of early wear or maybe if 7 has a fan controller or something i dont know about that keeps kickin in and out on one of my onboards, im still clueless as to why it came up, and i know this probably isnt the most informative post, but even to know if anyone else has it happen as well would be wonderful

You are going to need to remove the side of the case and try to isolate the noise
A clicking sound is usually related to hard drive problems. Often called the click of death

Having grandkids is God's way of giving you a 2nd chance because you were too busy working your butt off the 1st time around

i've narrowed it down to PSU mobo or one of my back case fans, both my HDDs seems fine and arent making any abnormal noise, the HDDs are only a 1.5yrs old

it sounds like the powerdown click, like just before it shuts off it makes a double click really close together, almost like kicking into standby but not, i still cannot figure out what is causing it or which piece of hardware is making it
