ji, last night the hard drive on my 3 year old Medion laptop was making a noise i can only describe as a squeaking noise, it honestly sounded like a mouse in the laptop (it isn't!!)
Do you think this could mean that the old faithful hard drive is on it's way out please?

could be the bearings on the fan usualy a hard driveon the way out eminates a clicking sound

always best to back up but just in case but a fan would be my prime suspect

You could try something nice and easy like blowing some dust out but like buel's answer I would also suspect a bearing on the fan.
