Re: xps 8300 starts clicking after a couple of hrs

It is important to isolate where the sound is coming from.  If it is your drive clicking, it may die completely any time.  If it is a fan, it's not much to worry about, but something you would want to contact Support for eventually.  Make sure you have any important data/settings backed up, then I'd recommend running diagnostics on the drive (probably F12 when the system is powering up - or you might have a utility disk that came with the PC).  If it passes or you are pretty convinced it is the fan, open the case (with the PC off), and reseat the fan(s).
