My laptop is clicking... ticking... not sure what word it is... It would sound like a time bomb if the clicks were closer together.
This is like the 5th time this thing has done this, it doesn't happen much. It's an HP Pavilion dv9000 on XP, I've only had it since December. I'm about to flip it over to see where the sound is closest to. I'm positive it's not coming from the speakers, I've had them muted for a while. It doesn't sound like the hard drive either, it's not that kind of click. The noises come at no particular intervals, like from between 3 seconds and 30 seconds, and they go away as soon as I restart. I don't see anything in common with what programs I've been on each time it's happened. This time I was playing the game Toontown. (Don't ask lol..)
Has anybody had this happen or have any clue what it is? I'd try to talk to the HP "Customer Care" people but it's too frustrating.
Okay I just flipped it over and I have an awkward question. It's about one of the symbols on the bottom of the laptop. (it's on one of the panels that you can unscrew.) Does the symbol with three CD-like discs on top of each other mean processor or hard drive? There are two compartments like this down there (One labeled 1 and one labeled 2 with this symbol)and it sounds like the noise is coming from the 1st one. I have two hard drives (one is a recovery drive or something like that) and a Core 2 Processor (which means there's 2 right? I'm not very smart here.) Thanks...
