    It all started when i opened some foreign file and it mustve been a virus or something. That triggered my computer to make these weird whirring clicky noises. Then my computer shut down. That day, i tryied to turn it on, it worked. However, the monitor didnt display anything. The computer was running but something to do with the bios just wasn't working.
    Later on, my father fixed it.
    However. NOW, the computer randomly shuts off by itself.
    I'd start the computer on, and usually, the computer would start to make these noises similar to that of a computer reading a disc.
    after the noises, the computer shuts off, and restarts by itself.
    Anyone have any ideas? :(

    Your hard drive may be faulty. What is the make and model of the system and what is the brand of the hard drive inside the computer?
