Almost definitely, yes! The ticking can be caused by a couple of different things, but all of them spell a soon-to-be dead hard drive. Sorry... :-/

take the hard drive out, mount it in a working computer, copy the files off anyway you can to save them, if you have a program like Norton ghost, you can try to go drive to drive with a fresh drive, this will make a copy of the hard drive, you can take the copied drive and place it back in and boot as if nothing ever happened. If you don’t have Norton ghost, there are other free programs out there that do the same thing, but I don’t have any name off the top of my head.

Heh. My secondary has been ticking for months now. I backed it up but it has cleared up. It only ticks occasionally now.

But to be sure, back it up ASAP!

Hehe, when I first built my machine I swore I'd reformat tri-annually. It's been over a year and I'm still working off the original install
