Hello, I have a Dell n5110 laptop that stalls during startup. HHD makes several clicks on pwer-up then stops. After pressing the enter key it starts just fine. Thought it was the drive and have replaced with a new one with a new install of Win7, the same result the drive stops after a few seconds. New cmos battery and updated bios. Is it the motherboard or processor?

sounds like the hard drive controller on the motherboard is failing.

Yup, motherboard. Got a NOS board replaced everything. Works like a charm.
