Hi I have a three week old HP Pavilion Desktop 2022 running Windows 7 Home Premium. I have noticed over the last few days that if I leave it in hibernation mode for quite some time, when I wake it up Windows starts perfectly but I get 7 or 8 strange clicks from the desktop unit itself. The desktop doesnt do this during normal startup or restart only when coming out of sleep or hibernation?? Does anyone else have this issue? Is it normal as I realise whilst in hibernation the fan is not running and it has been extremely warm. It does sound a bit like a cooling noise but hope someone can reassure me regarding my concern. Thank you, all answers are apprecaited.

It would be best to try to isolate where the clicking noise is coming from within the desktop.
Is it the hard drive clicking or is it a fan that is kicking on.
The noise might be somewhat normal as components are turning themselves on.
