Sounds like your hard drive has crashed. If you are getting an audible click from the hard drive, it is the arm hitting. Even then, sometimes you can get them to boot up on occasion.

The hard drive/SATA issue would depend on your motherboard connection. I think that there may be adapters to convert from a IDE to a SATA, but I haven't ever used one.

Changing the bios chips on that particular logic board requires soldering. It's a black chip with white writing on it, it's flat, and it has about 20 prongs on it.
