There's a possiblility that you can still recover your files. Try to plug your hard drive to a different PC and check if it detects it. Otherwise, there's no hope but to buy a new hard drive.

Yes, you have hard drive problem, you get PXE error becuase when it cannot bootup from hard drive, it will try to bootup through he network instead. The hard drive must show up in the BIOS. You can verify by try it in another laptop if you can.

The ticking sound is known as the "click of death". After a while the bearings in the hard drive get worn down, and the read head has trouble finding the data you want. In this case the drive puts the read head back to "square one" so it can try to trace its steps back to the wanted data. this makes a click noise. Thus the "click of death". Im sorry to say you need a new hard drive, and that your data is likely inaccessible without drastic measures. One method you can try is putting the hard drive in the freezer for 10 minutes. This will stiffen the bearings and may give you a couple of minutes to grab some data. You will want to have your new drive installed and windows loaded on it so you can readily access the data through a usb to sata/ide cable, which you can get on line fairly cheap. Other options are services like OnTrack, who have a team of engineers who open drives and pull the platters and try to get your data, but you are looking at thousands of dollars just for them to try.
