A couple of questions:
1) When did this problem start?
2) What were you doing before this happened?
3) what are the specs on the machine?
4) You say you hear clicking, are you sure its coming from the cd rom and now the hdd?
5) Do you have a warrenty on your laptop?


this started like ayear ago, one day it just didnt work when i tried to turn it on. its an old windows 98 and i hardly used it, except when i needed to wright a paper and the other comp was taken(also it only makes the cliking noise when u hold down the power button, coming from both the speakers and from cd drive ( ya im sure)
