My computer has been acting a little odd for the past couple of days. I noticed while my house was quiet, working on a project, that my computer made a noise back to back. It sounds exactly how my computer shuts down completely. Sort of like, a clicking noise, but more so how it powers down. It only happens every now and then. Maybe once a couple hours.
I'm thinking this may be a HD issue, but wanted to ask before I started replacing things. It's an older computer. I bought it in 2006 from ibuypower. It's been a perfect computer since I bought it. Only thing I've had to replace is the PS and the video card, which literally "blew up" a while back. My fault for not keeping it clean.
AMD Athlon 64x2
Core Processor 3800
3G of RAM
Any advice on this would really help. I don't want to lose all my files that I've put a lot of hours into as a result of a dying HD.
Thanks in advance,
