    There is a strange ticking noise coming from underneath the keyboard of the laptop. It goes off every 4-5 seconds.

    I've been running my Macbook Pro like a slave since I first got it, trying to run games that the GPU can't seem to manage to run. Finally after 7 months it's shown a problem.

    Here's what it sounds like: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0gn2E6NuJHs

    Any suggestions? Could it be the HDD or a fan?

    it could be the HDD, in that case you should back up everything, hard drives can die after making noises (its like a dying person screaming for life)
