If the sound is a new sound, I'd suggest getting a new HDD. It could be a sign of impending failure. Hard drives cannot be repaired.

I bought new seagate 500GB hard disk and installed windows 7.When i start my computer window loads and just before welcome screen it restarts.Sometimes my hard disk produce a sound and my computer...

You say the hard drive sometimes makes a sound. Are you saying an abnormal sound or the correct sound? If it makes an abnormal sound then send it back to the supplier for a replacement. If it makes the normal sound the reinstall windows 7 again and see what happens. You also do not say if you have loaded any drivers? if not do not use those from the motherboard disk but download them from the manufacturers site. Start with the chipset drivers, then graphics then sound then network and the rest dont really matter.Next go to windows update and install all the updays inc SP1. hopefully now your pc will work just fine.

Starts making a clicking sound..then wont boot up.

The clicking sound most likely is the hard disk. It is probably faulty (known as the click of death).
Go into the BIOS configuration and see if the BIOS detects the hard disk. If the BIOS cannot detect the hard disk then the hard disk is faultu.
To get you PC operating again, replace the faulty hard disk, install Windows on the new hard disk plus the HP's motherboard device drivers and your programs.

You have perhaps stored files too heavy for your compaq presario. All you need to do is have a back-up CD for your files.Then execute a disk clean up or defrag. It will take you several minutes. Switch on and switch off of your PC won't help solve the problem but it will create more problems on your PC.
