Dell Inspiron 5547 Slow clicking noise

My 2 year old 5547 just stopped starting no screen and a slow clicking noise. i took the back off and thought it was the hard drive. I replaced the hard drive ad restarted no change. I took out the battery and reseated it. Still a slow clicking noise that now seems to becoming from the fan which is clean no dust. Any ideas?

Thanks

RE: Dell Inspiron 5547 Slow clicking noise

It appears that you have narrowed the 3RRG4 fan has the possible culprit. As a test, unplug the fan from the motherboard. Power on only long enough to verify that the clicking noise is NOT there, then power off.
