My lenovo latop which is almost 2 yrs old occasionally gives me a boot disk error when starting up, it also makes a strange clicking sound when its booting up or when I'm gaming.

Can somebody please help me sort this problem out?

Clicking sounds combined with a disk error almost certainly means your hard drive is failing. Back up any important files immediately. Like before you do anything else with the computer.

Then download Speedfan here:

This program allows you to read the SMART values from the hard drive. As well as test the health of the drive. Check those values and report back.

I second it. It definitely means a dying HDD. The most important thing is to get your data and the product key out of the old drive. What OS is on it currently?
