T61 clicking sound when on battery

Can anybody help??

Whenever I unplugged the power jack and running on battery,

My speakers keep on clicking whenever I click on something (like opening folders or browsing)

The sound gets bigger if I turned the volume up...

It's not the windows XP click sound, but it's a very annoying clicking sound..

Any ideas??

Sounds like some sort of grounding issue, have you reseated the battery?

Re: T61 clicking sound when on battery

I've tried that once, but still no luck...

I ussualy uses the battery until it gets into 10% or less..

So, I don't think I should reset it again...

But, thank you though...

What's DOS?

Re: T61 clicking sound when on battery

I have the same problem on my T61. I had XP SP2 professional on it for six months or so without any problems, then re-imaged it with Win XP SP3 (new install). Since I get jitter mouse move, crackling/popping audio and jittey video. Something clashes every 3-4 seconds and every time it does, audio pops, mouse blocks and video skips. It lasts about 50 miliseconds, then it moves on fine.

I'm sure its the driver/bios compatibility issue, but I cant pinpoint yet what exactly.

Re: T61 clicking sound when on battery

this is actually the CPU that is clicking... this sound should eminate from the left side top corner of laptop where the CPU is at. A known problem in the Santa Rosa Core 2 Duo cpu... it has to do with CPU power management.
