Yea, my hard drive is failing. Good thing my new is shipping Monday!!! Every time I try to run a disk cleanup or defrag my computer restarts. You might want to check your disks for errors by the way.

Might be a bad power supply but i still cant think of what the screaming noise would be.....my only guess would be a fan or your harddrive..

i think it is the power supply, i was listening closely, when i put the power cord in, it started to make this slight buzzing noise, it never did that before.
