This is an HP problem. You will have one year from waranty end to correct this problem with them.
Good luck, happened to me too!

Gosh... I'm researching the same problem. I fear the solution lies in sending it back to the manufacturer under the wrranty. Is it an HP dv9000? That's mine and that's what I'm about to do.

The three beeps are your key! The post test are failing when you energize. Check your BIOS manufacturer to decode the beeps. The sequence is the main thing. Ask them to check post and tell you what the failure is. There are some books out there that also tell you what the beeps are calling as the failure.

No video is typically caused by bad CPU, bad memory or obviously, bad video card. The White screen is because there may be somehting wrong with video inverter. The clicking sound may be related to the hard drive. Try removing battery and AC plug, then press and hold power buttton for 10 seconds; I may be wrong on this, you may want to double check on Hp's website to see how to reset BIOS.

If you have your home work or files in your laptop and you can't save it or you want to remove to another PC then
I have solution for you!!
if you stop the fan by inserting anyting to sop it cooling the CPU then the laptop shuts itself down,
press power button again n again after few minutes ou will see the laptop works normal,
if you want to use it like this just don't shut it down when you finish,
leave it on sleep mode.
