HELP Secondary Master Hard Disk Error


Hello everyone I am new to this Forum and don't know weather it is the right place to ask for help about my hard disk.
when I star my desktop PC a black screen comes and says "auto sensing secondary hard disk error Press f1 to resume, del for setup."
But when I press f1 nothing happens and in bios the hard disk is detected but nothing about it is correct it shows that its size is 0mb and
and every other detail is not present.
there is a clicking sound coming from the hard disk.
can anyone help me by telling me what is the problem and how to solve it.

MY SPECS ARE-
Intel Pentium dual core e5200 2.5ghz
Intel g33 motherboard
Dynet 2gb ddr2 ram
intex 450 watt smps
hard disk western digital.

There is no problem with the slot in which I connect my hard disk because when i connected my friends hard disk in that slot then it works perfectly.
Thanks in advance.

Re: HELP Secondary Master Hard Disk Error

The clicking sound indicates that the reading head inside the hdd has been dislocated. If the hdd is in warranty, get it replaced.

HDD of yours is dead, if possible try to take it out and put it in another housing and try to access it through USB or other means... !!

Re: HELP Secondary Master Hard Disk Error

clicking sound sometimes also means not enough power supply

Re: HELP Secondary Master Hard Disk Error

If you are getting a SMART warning then I'm afraid that there's not much you can do with the hdd.
