My laptop keeps making a grinding crackling noise along with a loud clicking coming from the top right side of the laptop. Only a year old, most definately not the speakers and i am keeping it well ventilated, the latop does not freeze or lag.

So it didnt at first then started happening only when i over used it then i turned it off and it goes away, not it happens when its been turned on for about 5mins. My laptop is an Acer Aspire S3

Should I be really concerned? what do you think would be making this?

Ok I did a bit of looking around and noticed the hard drive is placed exactly where that noise is coming from.

So likely case is your hard drive is on the way out.
