You can replace the hard drive, but you will need to reload the Operating System from some other source, as it sounds like your Hard Drive is dead.

Hi. This is a typical sign that your hard drive is experiencing a serious failure. I hope you have backup of the most important data on the hard drive. You can try to fix the hard drive using a tool like HDD Regenerator, but the results are not guaranteed. Your best option is to buy a new hard drive & restore the data from backups.

What will happen to the hard drive in power failure?


Power failure as in whole house power failure? Or the computer's power supply failure?
Whole house failure, nothing, the computer will shut off and require rebooting, at which time you may receive a message the computer was not properly shut down, just continue as normal.
Computer power supply failure, same thing, nothing, except the computer will not reboot as the power supply has failed.

Once set as a slave, you can identify the drive letter given to this drive and format it either at a command prompt: C:> format [drive:] /s (to make it bootable) or no /s to just format it.- OR within Windows: right click on the drive letter and select format.

I hear click sound when open.


The arm that moves the heads over the platters inside your drive is loose. That means your drive is mostly toast. Read this link that I wrote on hard drive failures. It also has a way you can possibly recover a few files.
