So I turned on my laptop, logged in with my password and the second after that it started to made really loud noises and probably woke up everyone in the house... It kinda sounded like a lawnmower, or a car engine. Don't know an exact example of the sound but it sounded horrible and I knew something was wrong. My laptop made noises in the past, usually it would be randomly detecting a CD when nothing was put in, and sometimes that triggered the CD port to open. This time, however, the weird sound was constant and didn't get quieter over time. I waited for a bit to see if it would stop, but after 5 minutes decided to turn it off because it just wouldn't. I feared it would explode! Luckily, the noise stopped when it was completely turned off. After a bit, I turned it on again, to see if the same thing occurs twice, but no, it didn't. As always, the only thing I could hear was a pretty loud fan.

I have no idea nor any specific computer knowledge of what could be wrong with my laptop at this point. =(
The computer is 3,5 years old. Were problems like this supposed to happen eventually? Should I just buy a new one, or at least think about it?

It's difficult to diagnose this with any precision, but it's possible the bearings on the fan are going out and causing this noise. Before going to the expense of buying a brand-new laptop, I'd recommend checking to see if there are any computer repair shops nearby and then have them look at it for you. A replacement fan, even with labour costs, will still be cheaper than a new laptop.
