The key bit of information for this question is the faint clicking noise. The only moving component in a computer is a Hard disk drive, and the first sign of a physical hard drive failure is a clicking noise. SSD's do not have any moving parts and will not make clicking noises, while a Hard Disk Drive (HDD) will. HDD is not an answer, so None of the Above is correct.
A hard disk drive (HDD), hard disk, hard drive, or fixed disk is an electro-mechanical data storage device that stores and retrieves digital data using magnetic storage and one or more rigid rapidly rotating platters coated with magnetic material The platters are paired with magnetic heads, usually arranged on a moving actuator arm, which read and write data to the platter surfaces Data is accessed in a random-access manner, meaning that individual blocks of data can be stored and retrieved in any order HDDs are a type of non-volatile storage, retaining stored data even when powered offIntroduced by IBM in 1956, HDDs were the dominant secondary storage device for general-purpose computers beginning in the early 1960s
