I had just done a full restore on my laptop and i installed some software and it was working fine. i then installed a program called "midiyoke" which tricks the computer into thinkin that you have an externall hardware "midi keyboard" and gives you all the sound" then my battery was dying so as soon as i finished i shut it off. and when i tried starting it again, the only thing that happens is the hardrive keeps making this like clicking sound every few seconds, the screen wont turn and and it just keeps doing that, i cant go into safe mode or nothing what can i do, i even tried loading the restore disk and nothing!

Clicking from the hard drive would surely indicate hardware failure.
