How come my laptop makes a ticking sound and a screeching sound when I start it up?

Q: When i first turn on my laptop it makes a ticking sound and a low screeching sound and it never used to do that, what could be wrong with it?
Also my laptop will just randomly shut off and wont turn back on until i blow really hard in the side of it, it’s not over heated cause the fan is always exposed, what could be causing this to happen?

    If it is making a ticking sound it is more than likely a bad hard drive. Have you dropped your laptop at all? Is it an old laptop? If it is newer I would see if the drive is under warranty and have it replaced.
