Yesterday, my laptop made a sound like… well, like ball bearings clicking into each other. This is never good. But it appeared to be coming from the CD drive, so I didn’t worry about it.
If this happens to you… worry about it. My computer simply refused to boot this afternoon, and as I was flipping it over to try to find the stupid hard drive flap, it started booting. Slowly. With a click-click-click.
This time, I swear I didn’t do anything. And that part is still under warranty, so Dell is sending me a new one. But still, it kind of sucks.
