So, i got angry, as the Removed that i am i hit my laptop exactly on the HDD. This has happened to me twice now. Plus i didnt hit the laptop, i hit my desk.
My question is, how do i stop the disguisting clicking noise. From time to time i hear beeps and stuff and it continues clicking. Could the disk be repaired? Does my warranty cover it?
 
Do a HDD S.M.A.R.T test with CrystalDiskInfo and post the screenshot here.

Usually clicking noises from a HDD means that it can fail at any moment... so try to backup your data immediately.
They can't be repaired, you need to replace it. If you still have warranty you can try sending it to them

Don't hit or bump your laptop or your desk, I lost one of two twin internal HDDs some time ago from such a "not too hard hit" from me against the desktop chassis. I never did that again. That hit either caused a head to self-destruct or a head to hit the platter. HDD gone real soon afterwards.
