Hi MGP do you at least have the operating system CD.

Is this computer custom built. If not what is the make and model?

It's says celeron on the box but it doesn't say that under "system information".

It says

System model: AWRDACPI
System manufacturer: INTELR

I had some parts removed and put in before i bought it. Does that count as custom made?

How long do we expect your hard drive to last not long.

Your computer is not custom built you will need the operating system cd supplied with your computer.

Dn't even think about opening the HD unless you want to use it as an ungainly paper weight.

If the disk is clicking it means that it fails electromechanically. The data and applications can be in good, recoverable condition. Try cloning the disk to the new one. That may save you lots of work.

Is it possible to be repaired even if it means losing all my files?

Or is that impossible? I mean it sounds like it's just something that's out of place...

The disk cannot be repaired. Sometimes disks are repaired at a considerable cost for the sole purpose of recovering the data. After the recovery there is no use for them.
