Whenever i boot my system (windows vista) normally, it works fine anywhere from 5 min to a couple of hours, then freezes. Every 2 or so freezes, right before my laptop makes a clicking sound. I did a disk check and it came back good. If i boot up in safe mode, it works just fine for as long as needed, but no sound is killing me. i dont have the money to take it to a tech shop, and am nt experienced enough to really troubleshoot it myself, any ideas? What could be causing it? and what must i do to repair it? Thanks

if it works fine in safe mode... get some good anti-virus apps, and scan your files in safe mode.

I had exactly your problem around three years ago, and doing just that fixed the problem. Let me know

I'd suggest NOD32 - one of the best out there right now. Just DL a trial version to scan in safe mode. AVG and MCAFE are great too - use those if you want if getting NOD32 is too much of a hassle.

In conjunction with an anti-virus, in safe mode scan with antispyware, antimalware applications etc. Clear the infenctions of files that you don't want.
