Question about Computers & Internet
If your drive is clicking and isn't detected by the operating system, your hard drive is VERY dead. There are no user replaceable part inside a hard drive. The only thing you might do is get the very same hard drive and swap the controller card from a known good hard drive to the bad hard drive but the chances of this working are VERY slim. I would resign myself to the fact that the data on that drive is very truly gone.

Tips for a great answer:
Go to windows device manager listed in the control panel of windows 7 or under "system" in windows xp. At the top of the control panel is a group of small icons. Try clicking on the far right one which detects new devices. Then click underneath in the hardrive listing to see if windows detected it. I also use maxtor's maxblast 5.0 software to prep or clone a new drive. It's a free download. You install it and reboot. Then click on the icon for options.Visit us http://www.ezsystemrepairs.com/
