Sounds like you may have loosened the hd ribbon from either the HD or the MOBO.

I doubt it.
The message you are getting indicates the system is not seeing the hd.
It has nothing to do with what you did but only that by accident you may have dislodged the data ribbon cable to the HD somehow.
Fixable I'm sure.

Is there one to the hard drive?
That is the one I'm talking about.
Check it to make sure it didn't get pulled loose from the motherboard.

Is it a knocking noise or like a clicking noise?
Can you tell where the noise is coming from?
I take it this is a desktop so if you open the side up can you narrow down where the noise is coming from?
