hi my lapotop makes a small cliking sound everytime the activity light flashes...anyway it is not noticable in a noisy room but in a very quiet room you can hear the little clicking sound. Anyone know what it is or have the same problem please let me know what it is...and would i have to take it back.

i have a very strong feeling it is the Hard drive but even if...

You're correct - it's your hard disk.

If it has always made this noise, don't worry so much - some disks make more noise than others. If, however, it just started, then you've got a surefire sign of a dying disk. How long it will last is anyone's guess, though.
