Re: xps 8300 starts clicking after a couple of hrs
I think it must be the hardrive. When either fan is unplugged the vibration sound still occurs. I cannot think of anything else it could be - the two fans and the HDD are the only moving parts (when the optical drive is not in use).
Guess I'll have to call in. What a pain - I am rarely at home when their hours are open.
