HARD DRIVE FULL OF VALUABLE DATA, PHOTOS AND INFORMATION I CAN NOT LOOSE!

1) I have a compaq presario V5000 (XP-Home) When ATTEMPING to boot-up hard drive makes a really loud clicking noise.

2) System booted up once and I was able to run a diagnostic, after an hour and a half test completed but system froze.

3) Now system is blue screens. And I'm afraid to turn system on a gain.

What do I do next.

Remove hard drive and connect it as a Slave to another machine, you may then be able to retrieve any important data etc. I would guess hard drive has died.
