I get the error message "Error auto-sensing sensing secondary hard drive0
Strike the F1 key to continue, F2 to run the setup utility"

I have 1 hard drive 500gb WD i am using Vista on a dell 4700. when i hit F1 it says "no boot device available". and now when i hit F2 it does nothing.

Sometimes it does boot but when it does it make a loud sound i think from the hard drive. then it will freeze after about 10 min and i have to shut it down.

any help would be greatly appreciated.

Are you kidding? I think the clicking is the hard drive. it is not the computer sound.
