Hi this is my first post on this forum, so dont judge me :)

 

Recently my computer have been starting to make a huge noise when I start it then it gets higher and lower. This ends up with that when I log in I have to wait for the "Welcome" untill my computer stopped making this noise.

 

This is not the only issue. This computer has been starting to get slower and slower. My MAIN issue here is that when I play my game "WoW" the computer "Crashes". This "crash" makes my monitor to close "no signal" and my computer to still be on. When I restart it, it works as usual but still with the noise lag and crashes.

 This crash has NEVER happened before until this last noise happened and im scared to play WoW untill I get an answer on what I should do. I'm afraid I might hurt my computer. I did disk fragmenting, antivirus and CCcleaner. If this doesnt have to do with the computer hardware I can gladly format the computer.

Hi,

It sounds like you are in the process of experiencing a hardware failure.

What tests or scans have you run to check on your hardware operations?

What does CHKDSK /R report?

Keep us posted

Chkdsk /r...is a Windows tool for checking file structure of the partition...using it won't necessarily provide any info re a hardware problem.

 

Running the appropriate hard drive diagnostic will verify/refute the functional status of the hard drive.

 

Typical reasons for unusual noise in a system are failing hard drive and failing fans.
