dry erase??never heard of this expression before ,if its what i suspect that formatted the hard drive and re-installed the windows programme then yes you will need the original boot up disk to install the sound drivers .
Open your computer casing and look for the ribbon cable attached to your hard disk drive and motherboard. Unplug the ribbon cable from the motherboard and hard disk drive. Then put it back again the cable and observe, if the problem is still the same. Next part is to unplug the ribbon cable from motherboard and hard disk drive and observe for the sound comes from your hard drive. Try also switching your ribbon cable into another IDE ports.Normal hard disk drive usually have a normal sound but the defective hard disk drive have a mechanical noisy sound. Have a good day.
The clicking sound is most likely the "Click of Death" an indicator of a failed hard disk drive. The drive is having a hardware malfunction and the read/write armature in the drive is moving back and forth against the internal stops (this gives the click)
Replace the hard drive in the system
i can try to help you,
do you hear the boot beep sound?
if you are not able to hear the beep sound then i suggest you to open the machine and check with the cmos battery if it is working or no.
if your cmos battery is working then have a check with Power supply.
if the power supply working then there might be a problem with your motherboard or cpu.
now let me talk about checking the ram. if you are able to remove the ram module remove it and see if u can hear a long beep sound if you are able to hear it try to clean the ram contacts with eraser and then try installing it.
i think this might help you
Are you sure the monitor is plugged into the correct port? Also, check the monitor cable for bent pins. A small move shouldn't make this kind of difference. Eliminate that power strip and just plug the computer and monitor into an outlet.
