why did this problem start happening ? did you recently switched off the computer directly from the mains rather than shutting down first ? did you try the windows startup reapair tool

clicking = broken hard drive most times, hence windows will not start
you do have access to a pc though as your here so my advice is as follows
1. download ubuntu live cd from here cant see the link but guides there so it wont be far
http://www.ubuntu.com/download/help/try-ubuntu-before-you-install

2 burn it to dvd or usb stick
3 put in broken pc go to bios set boot to dvd or usb (whatever you burned to)
4 all being well the cd is now your harddrive and you will have access if the drivwe works at all top back up inportant files and such also you have a working pc for browsing etc. untill you can replace the drive
IF IT DIDNT WORK HD IS NOT THE PROBLEM
