    HP Clicking

    Good morning everyone,
    I have an Hp with intel Pentium cpu 3700 @ 1.60 Ghz. The computer is a little over a year old. The problem I am having is when it runs for a while, I begin to hear clicking noises. I am not sure where its coming from. It usually starts this noise when I am running a CAD type software. It will click for a while then stop. Do you guys think the hard drive is going bad? Could I boost the performance by changing the Hard drive and adding memory? It has 8 gigs now. Thank you for any help I receive on this.

    Yes, it is possibly your hard drive. You need to save what you can by backing up your hard drive.

    Thank you! I thought that may have been the case. everything is an external drive. I am going to replace the HDD. do you think that this computer can be upgraded? Like I said, its a Pentium and would like to go with something like and i5.
