Having problems with your Gateway MX6453 Notebook ?

Windows does not load, clicking noises from HD (I think) MX6453

\015 When loading Windows XP, sometimes i get that black screen and it says no OS found. Other times, I get to the loggin screen. My mouse dies shortly after, as does my keyboard. There is a clicking sound coming from the computer during this process. To see if it was simply OS error, I reinstalled Windows. While the CD was in the computer, Windows loaded perfectly (minus having the drivers needed for my laptop). When I removed the CD, the issues started up again.\015\012I believe that this is a bad hard drive, but am not sure. I am past warrenty, and even while I was within it, Gateway never worked with me when my mother board went out (took them 5 months to get them to fix my 5 month old ((when it first had issues)) computer).\015\012If this is a bad hard drive, I have no clue what type I should buy that would fit... any help would be appreciated.\015\012Thank you.\015\012Liz\015
