Hi,
Last night I was playing a game over internet when my PC started hang.
I rebooted it and I had 4 times in a row a bleu screen with at the top a sentence saying that my HDD was not a bootable device.
I unplugged the PC, check the HDD connections then restarted. It did this again and after few trys did boot up wXP.
I can now boot up but after 3-5 minutes the system hang after I can hear a little 'clac' noise in the HDD. Like if it was parking the heads.

I have NAV well updated and never saw any virus. I have a fire wall but I have to open it when playing over the internet....

I am now clueless on what to do. Any advice would be welcome.
I have read in this forum a lot of Hijack this report but I don't know what it is and how it can help me.
Thanks in advance for any help.

Lupin.

You are hearing the Click of Death! Backup ANYTHING you want from the disk right now! The drive is almost surely dying.
