If that's still in warranty period, you can ask new harddrive. Just take your CPU to the shop where you buy if you can't open your cpu

My Western Digital Hard Disk is Getting Heated And Also Sometime Creating Noise.....But by far One Most Complicated Problem..My Hard Disk Is Not Detected By My System When Tried Several Times.. My Hard...

> is getting heated

Normal for any spinning device.

> sometime creating noise

Normal when the R/W mechanism moves (like the arm on a DJ's turntable) to read from "random" locations on the disk-drive. In general, "defragmenting" a disk-drive tends to reduce the noise, because the R/W mechanism moves less distance.

> not detected ... when tried several times ... 20 GB

Any 20 GB disk-drive is "out-of-warranty" -- like a bald car-tire, it should have been replaced before it totally "blew".

Does it actually get detected, after a few attempts? If so, then "backup" your files (write to CD/DVD recordable media, or write to USB memory-stick) before it totally "dies". Then, buy a new disk-drive, install Windows onto it, and then reconnect the "old" disk-drive as a "slave" disk-drive.
Copy all your files from the "old" disk to the "new" disk.

My hdd is creating noise & is not dectectable

if you hear a clicking noise thats the reader arm sfipping across platters on you hard drive
a dirty hard first clean all of the dust from your computer using a fine air blower from an air compressor making sure there is no moisture in the air line then give the hard drive a firm tap on one side to free up the read arm
then replace all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA and the ones that attach from your motherboard to hard drive

good luck

This may be useful to you:
It is never a good sign when hard disks start to make notice. It means that your drive is starting to fail. Although there are variations, most drives are completely silent when they're running.
The tipoff is either a new noise are an intermittent noise. If the drive has always made a slight clicking noise when accessing data, that's probably nothing to worry about. If it just started clicking, or if it only clicks occasionally, this means something has changed. Change in a hard drive is a Bad Thing.
Grinding or squealing noise is definitely a bad sign and usually means the drive is on its last legs.
There are two ways to protect yourself against a failing drive; the first is to create a backup image of the disk and the other is to move all everything from the failing disk to a replacement drive. Also, make sure you have an up-to-date rescue disk so you can boot your computer even with a failed primary hard drive (the one with the operating system on it).
Creating an image won't stop the disk from failing, but it will give you a starting point from a known, good configuration if the disk fails. Cloning the disk to a new drive not only moves everything off the damaged drive, but it moves it in total so that you can start working on the new drive immediately.
If you suspect a drive is going flaky, it is relatively easy to cone your disk. Please see Drive to drive: Bring in the Clones for step-by-stepinstructions on duplicating your disk.
Using your image file, you can also deploy a new drive by restoring that image onto the new drive. Acronis True Image provides necessary tools to create and deploy a new drive.
The good news about discovering a potential hard drive failure today is that hard drives are inexpensive these days and installing a new one is easy. Many retailers and web sites sell high-capacity hard drives, up to 200 Gb, for $100 or less. If your drive shows signs of failing, replace it immediately, your data is far more important than the price of the disk drive.

Xerox phaser 4500 printer clicks while printing

The clicking noise is created by flat spots on the fuser rollers. The flat spots on the rollers create a ?chatter? in the fuser gear drive train. This noise does not affect the performance of the printer and does not affect print quality.

All new fusers are shipped with restraints that keep the rollers separated during storage. If the fusers sit without the restraints installed for a period of time, flat spots can develop on the rollers which can result in a ?thumping? noise and will create a ?clicking? noise in the fuser gear drive train.

If a printer sits idle for long periods of time, flat spots can develop. If Power Saver is disabled and the printer sits idle for long periods of time while powered on, the flat spots will develop at an accelerated rate.
The clicking noise is created by flat spots on the fuser rollers. The flat spots on the rollers create a ?chatter? in the fuser gear drive train. This noise does not affect the performance of the printer and does not affect print quality.To decrease the possibility of flat spots developing, set Power Saver to On with a Power Saver Timeout of 30 minutes

To decrease the possibility of flat spots developing, set Power Saver to On with a Power Saver Timeout of 30 minutes.
If a printer or fuser is not going to be used for an extended period of time or will be placed in storage for future use, re-insert the fuser restraints. The fuser restraints can be in place and the fuser installed in the printer
