    I have a brand new Dell Ispiron 5150 and I've only been using it for a
    few months. Today I turn it on and I get a message "primary hard disk
    drive not found" and the computer starts making a strange click noise.
    I haven't got the recovery disk because I am away for a few months.
    Does anyone have any advice?

    Well, that's a very bad sign. Usually it is a dead hard drive.
