    A stuck key?
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    Car PC Clicking (not hard drive)

    I've ruled out that the clicking is not the harddrive. I can disconnect it and still get the clicking.

    It's starts clicking about right after post and makes the speakers click LOUD as well. No idea what this clicking is, but it is at a steady rate about 2 clicks per second. Not sure if it stops after boot yet, as I don't want the clicking to destroy the speakers.

    I got the clicking about a month a ago, shut down and restarted, all good untill now. Now it does this all the time.

    I've had to disable the system until I can figure out a fix. Any of you gurus know the answer to this one?

    I've had the car pc in for about 5 months now.

    The keyboard is connected via usb. Interesting thing is sometimes it does not connect and I need to reboot. Don't notice much as I don't always use the keyboard.

    Why would the keyboard cause the clicking? Thanks for the info.

    Stuck Key

    Thats a good suggestion. Need to make sure nothing is on the keyboard.

    On a side note. Why did the last post register as 08-01-2001.
