Where exactly does the clicking come from? Usually clicking is a hard drive issue. The hard drive in a titanium is located immediately underneath the trackpad, so see if you hear a clicking from that location. You can also run disk utility to see if it spits out any errors. You'll likely need to replace the drive.

thanks I do think it's coming from under the track pad. the crazy think is I let it set for a couple of days and it hasn't done it today at all. Is this normal? did it get too hot the other day? I don't know.

thanks for the reply.

A hard drive can click one day and then not click for a while and then resume clicking. Clicking is a precursor to failure, so you want to make sure you backup your data frequently, and change the drive when you are able to.
