That's the "click of death" I would guess. Tapping noise and not booting, they go together.

There is no "repairing" a hard disk that has died, other than a nice shiny new replacement. :D

as mentioned the clicking noise of a nonbooting computer is often
the hard drive failing to work.

most likely it is the hard drive itself failing.

if the hard drive is not getting correct power it could also do
that behavior.

take the hard drive out and plug it back in, that may improve
its electrical connections.

the power supply could also be failing. have any other
bad things happened? if the power supply is going you
might have seen effects on the screen.

I suggest taking it back to where you bought it from -> Explain the problem -> Ask if it's covered in the warranty -> If it's not ask what the problem is and how much to repair.

Last time I had a similar problem. Everyone said "it's your harddrive" I took it back to the place I got it from, it was some thing to do with my motherboard.

But this does sound hardware (hard drive) related.
