    Does it make the noise all the time, or when you do something specific?

    It could be your hard drive dying. Make sure you have a back up and see how it goes. Is it an iMac?

    Fans make some weird noises too. Hard drives often make a slightly metallic click. You say 19". I don't recall a 19" imac. Can you provide a model to identify what you're using? If it's one where the hard drive is easily swapped and you have a backup of your boot drive, you might swap in and boot from the backup to check if it is in fact the hard drive (noises would go away).
