Welcome,

Can you be a it more specific? What are your hardware and software specs? How 'random' is random? by the day, hour, minute, every few seconds? Does it happen more often when you are doing something specific Does it happen hen you are doing nothing?

I can't touch your computer or see the screen so you have to be my eyes and hands [ears too]. Please paint me a clear word picture of the problem

Thanks

 

Dick

Is it just the clicking noise? or something else? Does this only happen when there's a browser open?

So far so good. Laptop, desktop, something else? Touch screen or mouse and keyboard? One or two screens?

I don't think it's a software problem so I don't think that there is a software solution.

Can you run the system with the side cover off so you can get a better fix on the source of the sound?

Desktop - tower or?

If a tower the side panels come off. One side will be almost all metal plate, the other will have the cards, and all of the rest of the goodies connected to the motherboard.

Put the side that shows you nothing down so you can see and hear what's happening. Go slow and be careful. Getting your fingers or something metallic in the wrong spot can be painful, and may be expensive.

I ask again, does it only happen when you have a browser open? Or it also happens when everything's closed?
