recently i woke up, went in my computer room, and saw the screen was black with the following message displayed
"Reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device"

so i rebooted and windows started fine

couple days later same thing happened, only it won't reboot, just comes back to the same screen

the hard drive is the only thing showing bios (samsung hdd), but when i hook up as slave drive to another comp, it only shows the usb/sata adapter, not the drive, also noticed the dreaded hard drive clicking noise, i really don't want to send to a data recovery company due to cost, but my family photos are on there and i have no backups, are there any other options?
