Sounds like the clicking noise may be your hard drive!
The simplest way to fix is to re-install WinXP. Once up and running run a chkdsk by right clicking your C: drive and selecting properties, then go to the "Tools" tab and click "Check Now" in the "Error Checking" section. Select both options and scan, it may prompt you to do it during the next reboot, therefore reboot.
If bad sectors are found, it will try and mark them bad so they are not used again.
If you do find bad sectors and the system is still under warranty, get it replaced.
