Solved!

Laptop makes a metallic clicking sound sometimes.

I recently bought a laptop from HP, and there's this issue where the laptop makes a metallic clicking sound at random. I've tried updating the BIOS and ran a disk check and got no error issue. 

Please let me know if this sound is common, if not how can I resolve the issue.?

Please run a System Test and let me know if you hear the clicking sound

 

- Shut down the Notebook completely
- Turn it back on, then tap the Esc key repeatedly until the Startup menu screen is displayed.
- Press F2 to select System Diagnostics.
- Click System Tests, then click Extensive Test.
 

Keep me posted

Hello,

Yes i performed the extensive test and got no error from the test.

But the sound is still present.

The noise is heard when the disk starts to run.
