Recently my computer has been crashing, it tends to happen most whenever I use my computer for its intended use, gaming. I first found the problem when playing Battlefield 4 after I installed a new Western Digital Hard Drive. Ever since I got the hard drive installed, it has been making weird noises. Not the noises that are on the WD website which portray a failing hard drive. But rather, noises that I believe are just a fluke in the product. The noises it makes are not heads colliding but sounds like an older hard drive that is putting a lot of stress into trying to read the disk. Most of the time it is silent, but alot of the time it is making these noises. I ignored these noises because I have heard them coming from computers before so I dont believe it to be a problem. At first I thought the reason why it crashed was because of heat, but that doesent make sense because I checked diagnostics tools and it seemed to be running at good temperatures. Then I opened up my Computer Case and left it running with a big fan blowing into it, not sure if this would help or not but it didnt. I have a good airflow within my case so I really hope this is not the problem. Also I have put my computer through many graphics card tests and it doesent crash, even under a stress test. I also have updated my drivers to the latest versions.
If you would like me to explain what the actual crash of my computer looks like, here it is. Pretty much my hard drive starts to make the weird noise that it makes. I believe it to just be a sound that the hard drive makes when it works harder. After maybe one or two seconds of the noise blasting, the screen goes black. Then my main screen displays a random color covering the entire screen and then my sound starts to bug out. There is no way for me to get out of this, all of my inputs (mouse, keyboard etc.) stop working and the only way to start up again is if I do a hard reboot.
Please help me fix this problem! It always crashes my computer in the middle of really important things that I am doing and it is starting to become very frustrating.
