Okay, now I'm probably just overreacting because of my past experience with my computer malfunctioning multiple times, but I would just like to make sure.

I received my fixed computer a couple of days ago, and have had no problems since. A few moments ago, I heard a strange noise come from my computer. It's a noise like a clicking sound, follwed up by a subtle noise that your computer makes as if it's warming up when you just pressed the start button. Now I don't know if it's the fan or another component in this computer, but I just wanted to run it by you guys to get your personal opinions on the matter.

As of this moment, I've only heard the sound once. After I heard the sound, I got a little worried, so I did a little test by shutting the computer down and then turning it back on a little later. This is just to make sure the computer is acting normally. I hope I am just overreacting, but there is no such thing as being too careful.

Thank you for reading this and giving your advice.

lol, clicking usually comes from your hard drive its pretty normal, if it is your hard drive the clicking should coincide with the HD activity light if it is wired up properly.
