Default Computer making weird sound

hi my computer is making a weird sound it's kinda cluncky and does it every once in a while but not all the time. it dos'nt seem to be a fan problem i checked that i almost sounds like it's coming from the graphics card. any ideas?

P.S. I'm getting a problem with my fans resolved currently but it has been doing this before that problem.

na, i think its the fan.I still have a old Compaq lugable from 1985 and as old as it is the hard drive is fine .Unplug the fan 1 by one and listen if the clunking noise stopped. I doubt its the hard drive, could be, but I doubt it
