The clicking you're most likely hearing is coming from your hard drive. The arm in the hard drive is not functioning correctly when you hear that noise. It's a good indication that your hard drive is getting ready to go bad.

If I were you, I'd get/buy another hard drive, .... install it as the master on your primary IDE cable (C:\ drive) and install a FRESH copy of your operating system on it. Once that's done, install any programs you've been using on your original hard drive onto the new C:\ drive.

Now plug your original C:\ drive onto your secondary IDE cable as the Master. Once that's done, you should reboot your computer. During bootup, you should see a boot menu pop up that offers you the choice of booting to either the operating system installed on either to primary or secondary Master drive. If you do see the boot menu, select to boot to the first listed OS. Once Windows has booted up, you can transfer important data from the old primary master onto the new primary master and you should be good to go. Once the data has been transfered, you can keep the OS on the secondary master as a backup OS (for dual booting purposes), or just get rid of it. Would not be a good thing to store a lot of valuable info on the hard drive and lose it when the hard drive dies.

Hi, I have recently purchsed HD502HJ SATA drive (500 GB with 16 MB Cache) at system boot there is head clicking sound. some times it hangs and not boot and take some attempts to start. so far it bootup...


That clicking is almost always the sound of a hard drive failing. It is the sound made when the heads attempt to park. You may have purchased an old or a defective drive. If you are able to get this running, immediately back up all of your data to a flash drive to preserve it because there is no guarantee the drive will continue to work the next time.

Dell poweredge 4300 Bootup problem after replacing cmos battery


Look for a jumper on the motherboard where it would allow you to clear the cmos. basically you would move the position of the jumper and turn on the computer and let it clear itself.

Then after it clears turn off the machine, put the jumper back into its original position and then turn the computer on and see if the message goes away.

Also go into the BIOS and put in the correct time, date, year, etc.
