Every time I start my computer my hard drive makes a starting up noise. Then when booting it will make a sound like it's powering down then trying to restart itself and my screen will just go black. Is this a problem with my hdd like I believe it is?
I'm not saying your HDD isn't failing. It's just that the PSU may be behind it. And with the display going black, it has me suspicious that the PSU is dying too. Cheap PSUs have a bad habit of taking other components out with them when they die.
