Re: xps 8300 starts clicking after a couple of hrs

Thanks for the suggestion. I'll run the HDD diagnostics right away. I am pretty sure it is a fan but I'll try and rule out the HDD first.

If it is a fan how do I re-seat it? I have never heard of doing that before and have no idea how it is done.

Thanks for your advice.
