Hello BC,
 
My friends PC has a HDD trouble as i guess. 
 
His PC's Description is:
 
CPU: Intel Core i5-4570 3.2GHz

Unfortunately, what you're describing seems like the "click of death", it's a terminal condition. It's generally caused either by a faulty read head or failure of the recording surface of the drive, and the drive has to be replaced.

Because the drive has the "Click of Death" the only way to recover the data would be through a Professional Data Recovery Service that has access to a clean room. It is very expensive. You can get a quote

JohnC has posted what I was typing. Depending on the actual cause even professionals may not have success. Friends of mine had a DeskStar with click of death assessed here in Aus by Payam, who have a no cost assessment, and theirs was deemed unrecoverable. They kept it for me to check out, and unsurprisingly nothing I could do would get any response from it.

The reason for the "click" sound is the read head trying to position itself to read the clock track.  If the clock track is damaged, the drive will not come "ready" and report any info to the BIOS.  Data recovery would require a donor drive and a clean room to swap the platters around.
