hi
I have a Dell Inspiron 4150 laptop
on start up until power down it makes an awful really fast clicking sound. THis sound appear to be coming from the area neatr the hard drive.
Any ideas???

Similar laptop.
InspironTM 1300

Now on my third had drive, first one lasted just over a year, second one 6 weeks, now fingers crossed for this one.
Not on warranty now, if this one goes I will bin it.

back up your data NOW!

clicking from HDD means its likely to fail soon.
