Unknown Hard Error?

My sons three year old pc has started to make clicking noises on boot-up, the welcome screen appears and then a dialog box which says "unknown hard error". I am baffled, any ideas?

The hard drive seems to be failing, take the case off to determine if the clicking sound is being made by the drive, if it is then you will need a new one, its unlikely that you will be able to recover the data on the old drive.
