This is most likely the wrong place to ask this but whenever I start running my computer, something inside the case starts to make a constant clicking sound. If anyone has any idea of what it could be/what component is causing this problem and how to fix it, it would be greatly appreciated!

Hey there,

It's possible it a fan on the CPU or GPU, or even on your motherboard or in your case.

It could also be a HDD (hard drive). Often with age and before they start to die, the make a licking sound, which is the actuator skimming across the disc to find data. But it doesn't find the data and hits a stop which causes the clicking. YOu might want to check the disk health.

You can check the fans by taking off the side panel (if your case has one) and locating the sound as best you can.
