Question about HP Pavilion m7570n (EX331AA) PC Desktop
If your Hard Drive is clicking it has become unreliable and is in the process of failing, you are lucky you were able to get all of your important stuff off and make your recovery discs. Hard drives can fail for a variety of reasons but it can happen at any time, if the computer is a month old or 15 years old... Honestly sometimes it just happens. This is why it is a good idea to constantly have at least one backup of your data.
Get a new Hard Drive, have it installed and have someone (or you) install the Operating System and then move all of your backed up data to your new operating system

Loud Clicking CAN be a symptom of a failing hard drive. Generally it is also associated with a boot failure though (It is called the Click of Death). If the system is booting normally, there may be a different source for the noise. Most desktop systems have a minimum of 2 cooling fans, higher powered ones can have 5 or more. Many moving parts in the system can cause a click.
I would suggest you remove the side cover of the tower, and see if you can localize the source of the noise. (The instructions for your system can be found on http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/siteHome?dlc=en&lc=en&cc=us
Once you localize the source of the noise, you can address the problem.
