Question about Sony VAIO VGC-V517G PC Desktop
Hard drive started making a clicking noise a week ago and now it will not boot into windows. I have tried going into safe mode but "blue screen" flashes and the machine restarts.
The clicking noise will be the platelettes or the head trying to park inside the hardrive. there isn't a lot you can do ;if you can no longer boot into windows, the hard drive will need replacing and you may not be able to see anything from it unless you have a usb to ide cable adapter to view any files. You may be able to retrieve your important documents from it by fitting the drive as a slave drive after you have installed the new one as a master.
