So right now I can't start my pc since the HDD doesn't work. This problem has been happening for a while, normally I just move the

 

cables a little bit and it starts working but then after a while the same problem appears.

 

Here is a video :  

 

 

Should I just change my HDD?

What makes you so sure that...out of all the things that could be going wrong...you have a hard drive problem?

 

Did you try booting in safe mode?

Because there is a sound clearly coming from the HDD, when I boot, after it makes that sound the pc stops working, it kind of freezes

 

Can't boot in safe mode since it freezes.

There could be many sounds that stop once a PC hard locks/freezes, but, the hard drive could be an issue. 

 

Certainly, if it was booted with a Linux Live CD image from a USB drive (Ubuntu, Debian, Linux MInt) , then, all would be well, as the hard drive is not used, confirming the PC seems to be working ok otherwise....it in fact, it does...
