10-11-2009, 10:14 AM #1Strange clicking noise coming from iMac 24"
I have this constant clicking noise coming from the bottom of my iMac 24"
The noise begins when I turn the machine on, and wont stop, until I turn it off. It is a constant clicking, with no audible change in loudness, just a constant clicking.
I've done some research and the descriptions of the noise are unspecific. I have recorded what my noise sounds like in hopes of figuring this out.
I have tried enabling the Energy Saver option "Put hard disks to sleep when possible" but that didn't work.
Attached is an .m4a of the noise, it is 3 seconds long and kind of quiet but its there.
Thanks in advance for any help!

I would say its the harddrive.

Sounds like my hard drive a week before it died. I'd backup all the data if I were you.

you better back that up. the new imac have a notorious reputation of having load harddrives, but that sounds like a dying one
