When the computer is first turned on and iv put in my password it starts crackling and churping and freezes up. So i shut it down and start it in safe mode and the noises stop.

There was a small bird caught in a case fan. The reboot killed it. :( 

The only movable parts in your computer that can chirp are a standard hard drive or a fan... crackling is another story I suppose.
