Harddrive clicking means the drive is dead or on it's way there.

You should back up the data if possible then purchase a new harddrive.

if the hard drive clicks then restarts, sounds like the hard drive could be failing.

**EDIT**
Beat me to it!!

I would try installing xp again, could be a bad installation.
