      Sorry but I think that your hard drive is a gonner. The read arm is what your hearing and is bad. No fix for this that I am aware of.
      Again sorry!

      The clicking is the death rattle of the drive. If it isn’t recognized in the bios then it is 99% unrecoverable. There are services that will take the platters out and recover data for you but at an outrageously expensive cost. If you can get it to be recognized as a slave then you might recover data but agin it sounds like that won’t happen.
