    Continuous clicking sound, like Explorer opening file/load webpage

    I'm new to the forums and not very PC or tech savvy! Just bought a new Dell Inspiron and noticed a clicking sound every few seconds. It sounds very much like the sound Explorer uses when a new folder or webpage opens. However, I hear it even when I'm not connect to the internet, not opening anything, and even when the speaker volume is turned off. Seems like it's coming from the left side, underneath.

    I did some online research that mentioned audio driver issues, interference and/or ISP issues with start-up. I've moved the laptop around and still hear it, to rule out interference.

    I've only had this laptop for two weeks, just last week it ran its first update. I don't remember hearing the sound before that, but hadn't used it much. Hoping someone can help because it is driving me nuts.

    Thank you!!!
