    Well couldnt get the sound... sounds like your harddrive is failing. Can you please explain the movements you have to do before the harddrive starts clicking.

    How old is this hard drive ? Usually when any drive start making a noise ,it is not a good sign.. You will have to replace the drive, I would back up all important files/photos/music before it goes out..

    You should backup everything and take it in for repair.

    well it is most likely a HDD.. this means when you tilt it, the disk is at an angle and the arm is trying to catch it so it can read/write it.... so maybe it is just that.. you need to keep it at about 0 degrees.. no more than lets say, 20 degrees.
