Long loading times, and strange noises...

i have turned my PC on 30 minutes ago, and the ''logo'' loading screen went on for good five minutes, and i notices that there are strange ''clicking'' (interval of around 2 seconds between them) noises coming from inside the case when computer is idle, soon as i open some software up, or go on internet it's all fine, but now it's making one of them ''hamster eating a carrot'' noises... can anyone help?

Hi,

This sounds suspiciously like a hard disk problem. If you are able to get into Windows, can you use the Seatools for Windows diagnostic checking software to check the health of your hard disk.
