At this point you will want to try to find what piece of hardware is causing the problem. I think you have hardware problems because of your explanation.
First, i have to ask once again, can you see anything at all? If not, POST(power on self test) is not occuring correctly. Try this if you think you can handle taking off the case cover and fiddling with the inside :
Shut down the computer and pull the plug and the monitor cable. Wait 3 mins. take off the case cover and remove the ribbon cable and the power cable to the hard drive. Be careful in there, dont do any thing that will cause a short with wires and such. (If you dont feel comfortable doing this, its time to hire a proffessional.)
If you want to proceed, after removing cables to the hard drive, plug the monitor back in and the power plug and turn the computer back on and see if it posts. Get back to me.

is the cover still off?
if so, listen carefully. let's see if you can identify the clicking device.
1. hard drive
2. one of the fans
3. power supply - looks for sparks, ...
try to identify which device is noisy without touching anything.

About that clicking from harddisk - Morse code if you ask me (joking of course)

You said you pull the speakers connections from PC and the clicking stopped?
Sounds like feedback...

By the way, I found my information off this website bioscentral in case anyone wants to check it validity
Now that i think about it, i'm not definite that its 2 short beeps. In fact as I've written earlier it still sounds like beep pause beep continuously. So it might be the one short beep just spaced out. If anyone can tell me just how the bios beep codes should sound that'd probably help a ton.
