I know this is incredibly silly to ask of you people but I am baffled by this and admittedly know very little about this laptop other than it's useful for school, was a gift, and I hate it.
So about eight months ago my Toshiba Satellite began to make clicking sounds. I suspected it was the fan, but it was different. It wasn't the fan sort of sound. It sounded as though someone tapped loudly on it. After a few times of this happening, I began to suspect it was the hard drive. However, I had no time to bring it in to get looked at (it's still under warranty) so I risked using it knowing it could break down and just began to save my school work a lot more. Two weeks ago, it just got out of hand and the screen blacked out with a blue line just going through it so I finally got off my ass and brought it in. I got it back a week later and apparently my hard drive was poo and they replaced it, thereby wiping it out. Luckily, I saved things anticipating something like this would happen. The fan, to their knowledge, is fine.
Anyway, you'd think everything would be sunshine and farts but it's STILL making the annoying clicking sound and no it's not the sound of me typing or anything like that, it's the same sound. When I hold my hand on the keypad, I can feel that it sounds like it's coming from the CD-Drive but they said not to worry.
I'm embarrassed I even have to ask, but... What do you think is going on?
