Ticking PC

I recently reinstalled linksys wireless usb network device and now the pc has begun to tick.
I don't think it is about to blow up but it is annoying. Can anyone please give me any cure for the problem???

possibly a cable hitting a cooling fan inside the case?

One of my machines developed a ticking sound recently. Armed with a stethoscope, I tracked the noise down the a fan on the graphics card.

I replaced the fan and everything is now OK.

If you don't have a stethoscope, a cardboard tube will do.
