Hard disk drive has gone bad. the ticking is the read heads hitting the stops hard. means that the disk might have been dropped.
If the ticking is musical in nature, like a waltz, this is caused by a virus that can activate after april 1st of any year.

For last 2 weeks, whenever I tried to open my PC (Clone PC), HDD became start to make a noise, Tik-Tik-Tik. Windows cannot be loaded. I tried with a bootable CD, but it also fails to load any Drive. I


The tic tic tic noise is known as the tic of death. This hard drive is faulty especially when you go into the BIOS and the hard disk is not detected. This is why when you try to install Windows it cannot detect a hard disk.
The hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

My hard drive is not displayed in my computer and a sound like tik tik tik tik comes from inside the drive


The hard drive is faulty. The tik sound is generally known as the "click of death".
You need to replace the hard drive, it cannot be repaired.
If you need to recover data from this hard drive, there are companies that can recover data from faulty hard drives BUT it will cost you an arm and a leg for their services.

When put on the pc, tik tik sound coming from hard disk


Hello my friend.
This is indicates that you have hardware problem on your disk or is very dirty.
The only think you can try before buy new one is to scan it for errors and and do a defrag.
You go to MY COMPUTER
You select your hardrive LOCAL DISK C: etc
Right click-Properties-Tools Check now(Check for errors) Probaply will ask for a restart to scan it,so do a restart do start scanning your disk
For a defrag you do the same but in Tools you choose Defragment now(defrag now)

LG old but brand new blank screen green light making a tik,tik,tik sound.


Nothing you can really do yourself with that. I would call manufacture and get solutions from them. When it comes to monitors, unless your skilled in repairing them you will only do more damage to them. If you really feel like jumping into it and have nothing to lose you should be able to find a service manual on this monitor here http://www.eserviceinfo.com/most_popular/list_8400.html and rip it apart to find the piece to replace.
