I thought it was related to the HDD being accessed, and thought if I applied the Travelstar 60Gb 7200rpm firmware patch (from Dell) to the HDD, it might dissapear (they call it an intermittent clicking, I have no idea if they are referring to the same noise or not).
Anyway - due to having to floppy drive on my 9100, and no way of creating a boot CD (Dell say visit bootdisk.com, who want to charge), I have no way of applying that patch to let you know if it fixes anything or not.
But good to know I'm not the only one
