for some reason whenever i try to play something, the disk drive doesnt spin or anything. :mad: i was playing a minute ago but the game crashed and i couldnt start BF up again. could it be my disk drive has broken? or is it too hot and needs to cool down? i heard this clicking noise as i started it the first time too

Doesn't have to be your hdd. HDDs are usually quite silent. You should check your RAM, use google to find a free tool to check it, forget it's name :) Make sure you have the latest drivers etc. installed. If you didn't have this problem before, think a bit what you changed in the last few days, maybe you installed new drivers which work less good than you old ones. You can also try an intensive scandisk check, or search tools to check your HDD.

I doubt that it's heatrelated, in those cases your PC usually restarts. If RAM doesnt work your PC just stops working most of the time. Last time I had a problem like this it was a graphicscard driver problem. Good luck

A clicking disk indicates a dead disk... however since I assume you can load windows, it's probably alright. It depends on what you define as clicking. btw, if you try to clean the hard disk internals, you will wreck it - it's factory sealed and is meant to stay that way.
