Clicking or ticking sound coming from the rear

sounds like a malfunctioning relay in the wiper controls and youd better get that battery charged back up before it freezes and the water in it turns to ice.. it will kill that battery really quick..

I plugged in the microphone in my labtop but the sound doesnt come out like there isnt any problem but i dont know how to use it on labtop

I imagine you are running some version of windows, they all act basicially the same and are sometimes tempermental with auxillary devices. I imagine it can be fixed if you right click on the little speaker icon on the corner of your taskbar and then change some of the settings around under the recording devices and playback devices. I would be able to help more but I need more description.

My USB 2 1TB got knocked over and now is making a clicking noise. It is connected to my DVR not my computer. The programs on it play and I can record new shows but it still makes this clicking noise. ...

Something moved within the machine when dropped. If its working fine though there isnt to much to worry about because the important parts are unharmed. if it really bothers you your going to have to take it apart and find the lose part

It will not plug in labtop

make sure the USB port is correct and your running the right software. if it physically doesnt fit then the USB isnt correct, perhaps bring it back to where u got it from and explain the problem

Issues like that you need to take it to your local repair shop as it is impossible to diagnose the problem without physically being there.

OS Wont load

You need to reinstall operative system, either using recovery disk, or using a generic windows setup disk.
If the computer does not read recovery disk, then it is probably scratched or faulty.
System reinstall is usually done at any computer repair shop for a not too expensive fee.
When hard disk is damaged you often also hear a typical clicking noise, and system stop shortly after post.
