I purchased an ssd to replace my two normal hdd drives.
However, even with the two hdd unplugged and just the ssd plugged in, i can hear the sound of a hdd loading sound whenever i load anything I thought this was strange as ssd has no mechanical parts to make noise. So i sent the ssd back and got another. But the sound still persists. not only that but sometimes in games or even just opening the start menu, there will be a "click" sound from the computer. like it clicks before loading something.

I took the side off the computer and had a listen, its definitely not my ssd. But it is only making the loading sounds when loading and the clicking whenever something is first loaded up. Literally like the sound of a click of a mouse.

I can't figure out where the sound is coming from. Help? It's starting to make my games randomly jolt/stutter every now and again too.

The CD/DVD optical drive could be making the noise.

Make sure the computer fans are clean and working correctly.
