So it's the monitor that flashes red? I would try the monitor on a PC to determine if the monitor is good. If not, replace monitor. If monitor works on a PC but not the KVM, power cycle the KVM. Depending on the model you may be able to do a hard reset. On other models you can access the KVM via IP to determine if there is an issue with the KVM.
This is a common issue when the unit has been dropped or jarred really hard. The click is more than likely the hard drive trying to read the disk but can not access information.
With that in mind, try this: Remove all USB, SD, or any cards and attachment from you computer. If you have one at hand, connect an external monitor to the pc. Power on. If you get an image on the external monitor, restart pc and press F8, select "Enabel-low-resolution video" and move forward. If you get a picture after this, your video drivers need updating. BUT......
The clicking sound is a major concern because usually the hard drive is the only hardware part that have moving parts. (other than the optical drive or if you have a solid state hard drive.) If you have a dard drive the same size or close with an operating system on it, replace your hard drive with the GOOD drive and retry. If it boots, you need to replace the hard drive. (and hopefully you have a backup of your data)
Worst case, you may need an authorized HP agent to service your pc.
Try to switch display output by pressing 'Fn' key with 'F4' or 'F5' key which has screen picture on it. Try it 2 or three times.
If it not works, then try it in windows, right click on desktop and in context menu see whether any display output option -> to monitor or to notebook. Click on to Notebook.
If still problem, you have to contact your vendor.

Thanks paul7of9
I thought my problem was originally monitor related. However since I posted, the picture disappeared altogether, and my PC wouldn't even start to bootup. Fearing my mobo may have died I removed the hardware components, cleaned then re-assembled them. After all that, it turned out that my graphics card has a tendency to become slightly unseated. Once I was aware of this problem booting up resumed normally. It seems that the problem of the fading monitor picture seems to still occur, but soon after I use the machine after 'hibernation' state, and even then it doesn't always occur if I do use hibernation. I haven't used hibernation for a little while and so far the problem has not returned
What type of monitor do you have? I need to no if the power supply or cord plugs directly into the LCD Monitor? These questions are important! Please answer these questions, I will be able to give you an answer!
There is probably a bad capacitor within the monitor that will not allow the picture to "hold" in the on configuration. This will need to be replaced. You can send it back to Phillips, or 17" monitors are pretty cheap these days. I would suggest a Samsung or BenQ. They both carry 3yr warranties.
