Question about E-Machines T2615 PC Desktop
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.
