    Hello,
    I'm having DELL laptop and i have some problems and i don't know where to ask so i am searching for help. My laptop is running only on charger without battery for over a year without any problems and suddenly my pc turns off and i cant turn it on again. After the windows loading at startup i get black screen. And after i turn it off and turn it on again I get Automatic repair and it says that windows didn't started correctly. I tried reinstalling the windows many times but still the same problem. The last time i reinstalled the windows after 5 minutes on the desktop it freezes everything and i hear a lot noise inside and it heats up a lot. I saw in Task Manager at processes that DISK was 100% and it was red. I tried everything, cleaned up the dust inside, CHKDSK, changed the hard disk and still got the problem. Any help?

    Seems like your laptop is overheating. To confirm this try to check cpu and gpu temps with a program like hwmonitor.

    Edit:

    If your laptop cant boot into windows try to boot with a bootable linux flash drive and install 'sensors' with the terminal.

    How to create a bootable linux flash drive:

    Hi Welcome to Windows Central. I agree with @PlexusCV . Creating a Linux bootable flash drive is a excellent suggestion. If Linux will run without problems, you will have eliminated all hard ware except your hard drive. I think I'm right about that. @PlexusCV can correct me if that's not true. Things that make noise are hard drives and fans. As was suggested in above reply. It's very possible that your PC is over heating and the noise is coming from your fan!
    Very nice reply @ PlexusCV
