Clicking sound on 20 year old compaq armada 1120. Heatsink or HDD?
Hi. I have a 20 year old Compaq Armada 1120, which I am planning on playing old pc games on.
The thing is, it's making a clicking noise which is either coming from the heatsink fan, or the hard drive. I'm wondering if anyone knows of a way to figure out which one the sound is coming from. I think the clicking sound happens shortly after the hard drive stops running when the computer is idle, but I don't know for sure.
If it helps, here is the sound in question. You will probably need to turn the volume up quite a bit to hear it.
Is this a good question?
