My computer was making weird sounds today. It was a clicking/tapping sound. It was weird. I am worried now. I did accidentally leave it on because I feel asleep unexpectedly. Anyways, is this a sign that my computer is overheating?

First two things to do.

1) Get in to that case and blow the dust bunnies out of all fans and the heatsink area with a can of compressed air.

2) Sounds like you may have a wire tapping against a fan, so after you get them blown out, then work your way through all fans and make sure a wire someplance is not touching a running fan.
