Messed up sound

So this isn't wow related. I know nothing about computers so if you have an idea to fix this, try to make directions easily followable. Thanks!
Was on WoW yesterday and all was well. Set down my laptop and went to get a drink. Came back and all that comes out of the internal speakers is clicking noise over and over and over. So I try putting in headphones. The clicking noise comes out of the headphone and the speakers at the same time. The issue is this blocks all other sound. If i mute or change volumes the volume of the clicking noise does not go away or change. It begins as soon as it gets to the loading windows screen, and never stops. No other sound can come through.
What I've tried:
1st Tried to update the driver. I have the most up to date driver.
2nd Restarted computer. No change.
3rd Uninstalled the sound driver, restarted computer. Logged on and the sound stop. Reinstalled the driver (through the auto-install driver wizard that popped up) as soon as the install finished went back to making the clicking noise. Now I turn to you for help.

Your laptop's sound hardware could be borked. Since you've already tested reinstalling the sound driver, if you do a full OS reinstall and the issue still remains, there's a fair chance you've got a hardware issue.
However, since you say it doesn't appear until the login screen there's a higher chance it's software-related. So I'd still recommend that OS reinstall for you... :) Just make sure to backup ALL the files you want to keep, AND to do a full format of your drive before you install the OS again. This will reduce the risk of bits of old files remaining and possibly causing trouble should there be a fault in the file system of your HDD.
