Hi i have been having problems with my 5 year old computer for maybe 6 months, and I have some serious problems with it. One problem is, when the computer started up, it makes this click noise, like someone pushing a button. Me being a complete amatuer, ignored it until finally it totally effed up my computer. My computer wont go into windows xp, it wont even go to safe mode. I can only go to the system restore screen, and i cant even restore my computer since it says " cannot format user portion !" Any help?

I already have all my info stored on a network, so i dont mind like wiping it totally clean, I really just want to delete some stuff on there. (some games and some programs, cuz of serials) please help^^

That clicking noise is probably a sign your hard drive took a dive, along with your symptoms, and you need a new one.

Agreed we call it "the click of death" and it means a bad hard drive.
