Hi, That looks a hardisk failure. Set the BiOS to "max. default operation", save upon exit. If you still got the same problem replace the HARDiSK. Try to replace the hardisk and install your favorite OS.
The clicking sound is caused by the spindle inside the hardrive, because it was not removed properly. Just connect you external hardrive to your computer, if it makes the clicking sound again dont remove it yet, just restart your computer properly. In that way all the devices connected to the computer will be refreshed and properly shut down. If it is not detected still, unplug the haardrive then try another USB port. Recommended ports are at the back of the CPU if your using a desktop. These USB ports have higher voltage output that can power up all external hardrives properly.
you mention you have change your hardisk,you have to check if your hardisk was configure in cmos and bios set up, first whaen you start your computer press F2 then bios set up appear,check your device if
was connected on your system.on main menu check your ram if it was connectd,then press arrow right to advanced menu check your hardisk from IDE configuration if both hardisk and memory was installed or cofigured by your system.go to boot menu to set your device, on boot menu,scroll it from boot device priority
if you assure there is windows installed already on your hardisk,priority your hardisk,second your cd room,third floopy etc.press F10 to save and restart your computer,If no sytem was appears you must reinstalled your windows but you should change again
the boot set by priority the cd room instead of hardisk in order to put windows on your computer.press F10 again to save and restart your computer
to install your windows
insert windows cd on cd room
wait to configure your computer by the cd windows
then ff the windows installation procedure
until windows installation was finish.have a nice day don't forget to rate me please.thank you
Normaly when you get the error that the operating system cant be found, it is a indication that the hardrive has either gone bad, or somehow some of the system files got deleted. I would say though since the hard drive light wont come on it could be the hardrive has shut down completely. But you still should see the company image of your computer when you start it up, (the bios screen)
A bad hardrive would be my first guess, 2nd problem if its not your harddrive would be a new power supply.
if y0our going to slave one hardrive you need to set that hardrive jumper into slave format....check your hardisk if where pin should it e placed...usually there is a direction where to set the jumper for slaving the hardrive.
see if in your power options what you put for the amount of energy devoted to your hardisk also see in your system about your harddisk setting to assume the worst you have abnormal operation/a virus and it would cause your system to use it harddisk more but i don't think you should worry harddisks are designed to work hard hope to help
1) Unplug the ide cable from the motherboard, and try booting, It should through an error.. which is good.
2) If it troughs an error than re-plug the ide cable back in and make sure hard drive is plugged in tight.
3) boot up he system and go to the bois
4) In the bois select auto detect drive (if you have that option) if selected than save the bois
5) if the driv has been found then you system should boot up correctly assuming that you have an operationg system installed.
