Question about Maxtor Hard Drive
A Windows setting is what's rebooting the computer, and thats a bit hard to change since it wont run Windows at this point.
The clicking could have been the hard drive. I'd run the manufacturers diagnostic on it. Download (from another computer obviously) the diagnostic file(s) from (??). You didnt say what brand it is. Let's say it's a Seagate, go to seagate.com and then to support.
The diagnostic file with create a bootable floppy or cd. Set your computer to boot from which ever of those. Run the diagnostic. If it's a faulty drive and it's under warranty, check the website for info on how to get it replaced for free.
Send a comment after you've done that and we'll go from there.
