SOURCE: operating system not found
the laptop is unable to read operating sistem from disk - you have to try to insert recovery disk after changing in the bios (you can read on laptop manual how come in bios for changing to first boot is hard disk to first boot is cdrom or dvd or cd ) after that you can try to recovery the operating sistem - it may be not so easy delfo

There are many possible reasons for this problem. The most common of which is corruption of your file system or the "master boot record". (Each having to do w/ the computer's hard disk drive.)
If you could, please, answer the following questions it would help a great deal in determining what the next step to take is.
(01) What is the make of your laptop?
(02) What is the model?
(03) What is the serial number or service tag number (Dell)?
(04) What operating system is installed on the laptop?
(05) Do you have the system restore CDs or operating system CD that came w/ the computer?
(06) Did any event precipitate this problem? (dropping the laptop, installing or uninstalling software or hardware drivers, installing operating system or any other updates, system "crash", etc.)
This and any other information you can provide can be very helpful.

The clicking is from the hard drive. This clicking , along with the error op system not found, indicates that the drive has crashed or failed. You will have to replace the hard drive.

Unfortunately the OS got corrupted and you need to re install the Operating system.
There is no other way to fix the problem but use the recovery disc.
If you dont have a recovery disc you may want to contact the manufacturer of your laptop and order one.
Or if you can use a retail version of Operating system and once finished installing you may need to download the drivers of your laptop on the support site.
Hope this helps.

You should be able to fix this simply by inserting the original Cd that came with the computer and following the onscreen instructions.
Or the startup disks (if created) when you first used your laptop.
Alternatively If you do not have the one that came with your computer then you should be able to purchase one from ebay quite easily, and then insert it and follow the onscreen instructions.
I hope this helps you, Chris
