    strange noises coming from laptop
    Hey,

    I got an iBook G4 not long ago and I have an issue with it that I hope someone could shed some light on. I've noticed it making a strange clunky noise about every 30 seconds- constantly!- and it's driving me nuts!! Does this sound familiar to anyone? Is there any way to stop it? I find it hard to believe that it's supposed to be happening, so any advice would be appreciated.. Thanks.

    Specs:
    Imac 27" Retina 5K, 512GB flash memory, 3.3GHz, 16GB memory, macOS Sierra beta.
    Moose go to Disk Utility and see what Verify Disk and SMART status has to say as it is possible the HDD is on the way out. If advised the drive is failing, back up urgently and replace asap.

    re strange noise advice
    Yep, that would appear to be the problem. My HDD's had it. I never would have thought about looking in disk utility to solve this prob. Obviously I don't know much about my computer's guts. Thank you so much for your help.
