Clicking ASUS laptop. What's the matter?

I have an ASUS UX31 laptop - just under a year old. In the last couple of days it has started making a clicking sound. Specifically what I hear are quiet pairs of clicks. The clicks are separated by about a quarter of a second and the pairs of clicks repeat every 3 seconds - it sounds a little like a relay opening and then closing. Any ideas?

There are no other noises and the clicking does not seem to be affected by variations in the cooling fan speed. The clicks start from the moment the laptop is started until the moment it shuts down - they continue if I unplug all external peripherals. I am running Windows 7. This laptop uses an SSD rather than an HD. Everything else seems to be functioning normally.
