    Ticking noise?

    that could be your harddrive dying.
    No, seriously. When my previous harddrive was about to die, it made this ticking/clacking noise and then the computer froze up. When i rebooted... nothing!

    get someone with computer knowledge to check your computer out.

    Thanks. I know there's another Shug on the board. We've never met, but from his posts he's obviously into breaks too, so I don't mind sharing the name.


    ps. the ticking noise was coming from your speaker right? I think a small audio segment got caught in a loop.

    my hardrive wasn't dying
    a simple reboot fixed it all!

    and yes hugh, shug is very much into breaks :)

    yes the ticking noise was coming from my speaker...i shut down yahoo and my music program and it wouldn't shut up! but your advice worked well, thank you....

    that happened to me, the hard drive was chewing itself up, gradually getting dumber and dumber, until it just sat there and stared at me.

    kind of like mad cow disease for computers.

    funny and true story:

    In highschool this daft cunt was in the auto along with three other fellow friends and the father driver. They are happily driving along singing show tunes and playing eye spy when a concerned look arises from the bitch's face. She looks around cautiously and feverishly ... not sure what's transpiring before her. The level of comfort drops quickly and she musters with a concerned effort :
    "What's that Ticking Noise?"

    The driver of the vehicle looks perplexed and quickly realises what the issue at hand was. The father-dude turns around and replies with a stern voice:
    "Why, that's the turn signal"

    Laughter ensued ...
