Insert your windows cd and set computer to start from cd. When prompted to, hit a key to boot from CD. Let Windows start the install (relax it is not really installing anything) when it gets to the prompt, tell it you want to Repair an existing installation. Then pick the prompt that gets you the recovery console. When you get to the prompt type CHKDSK /R and let it run. Sometimes this can take an hour or more depending on the size of your drive. Do not get worried if the percentages complete go backwards, like from 70% back to 50%. Sometimes it will go back and fix files. Hopefully you will not get the error that there are unrecoverable errors. This has worked for me on about 90% of the hard drives that I received the inaccessible boot device or had a corrupt installation of windows. Sometimes you cannot recover from this unless you get really lucky. I had one instance where I did this and CHDSK recovered the files but did not name them the same as before and it renamed the Windows System file FOUND001. Luckily I had another similar computer to insert the drive in as a slave and compare file sizes to and when I renamed them the correct filenames the system started up and allowed me to retrieve my data. I ended up reloading the machine after I got my data off. This whole problem happened due to a power interruption during bootup.

SOURCE: my cp will not boot up
You go to Bios mode and choose the frist boost is DVD/CD then save new setting and turn off your comp. Insert Win XP operation disk and see if it could fix the problem.

Before windows loads press F8 on the keyboard to get an advanced menu.
choose the option that says disable automatic restart on error and see what error you get.
Also try the Safe Mode option.
That click sounds like the harddrive is failing.
