Laptops make lots of different noises and sometimes sound like they
are about to fall apart. Sometimes these are normal noises and sometimes
they are telling you that they "are" about to fall apart. Here are the
top noise makers I've found in laptops:
1. Light plastic creaking sound when opening and closing the LCD?
Most of the time this is fairly normal. If your LCD lid becomes harder
to open and close then you should look into getting some new hinges put
2. Creaking sound while moving the laptop around?
This is normally just all of the parts rubbing around. You might think
about checking the screws on the bottom of the laptop to make sure they
are not loosening. Don't over tighten the screws or you might
3. The main body of the laptop is made of plastic. The nuts that the
screws go into that hold the case together are molded into the plastic.
If your laptop is older or gets packed around a lot, then you can have
these nuts come loose if the plastic cracks or breaks around the nut.
This will loosen the case up and cause it to let the parts rub and make
If you have bumped or dropped your laptop recently then you may
have a problem with the fan rubbing against something or a broken piece
may be rattling around in the case somewhere. (including the fan cage)
5. Hard drive?
Is it a fairly loud clicking noise from the hard drive area. Again, has
the laptop been dropped or bumped? If it is, then shut down the laptop
and read this article on another computer!
6. CD rom?
CD / DVD drives can make noises. If it has an older rom drive it can
make noise at startup. If you have a CD or DVD in the drive try removing
the disk. If you have a disk in the drive that is out of balance this
can cause noises in the computer.
This information should help you find the location of the click, then you should be able
to fix your issue. Good luck.
