Weird noise and freezing

Hello and I will apologize in advance for any mess ups this is my first post. I have recently have been having a problem. I will be browsing the web or playing a game and my computer will make a weird noise and the screen will go black. I have no control and cant do anything and I have to force a restart. I have no idea what is happening please help! I have a Dell inspiron one with a AMD procceser and Ati Graphics card. I'm posting this from a hotel on vacation so I don't have the exact specs right now but thought I would post for some help when I get home.

So for clarification this is about a desktop or laptop? The first thing is an overheating issue that comes to mind first for me for either one. Make sure all intake/exhausts vents are clean along with all fans. Then get some temp monitoring software for cpu, gpu.

Sounds like your HDD puts the brakes on. Run a chkdsk and see whether the HDD is healthy.

Thank you all for the support and yes it is a destop. Now about the ram issue I have 6 G of ram and plenty of memory for my files and applications.I am sorry but I'm not sure how to describe the noise and what application should I get to check my CPU temp. ? And last question, why would my HDD possibly be causing this problem?

Download Real Temp 3.60 | techPowerUp

easy to install and works great.
also did you run chkdsk as whs said?
that can help to see if it's the harddrive or not.

Weird noise from PC please help
Playing: noise.mp3 - picosong The *nnnnniiiiii* sound starts at around 0:04 seconds. The whole audio has been enhanced so you can just about hear it. It only comes on when I am gaming, so it's not any wires getting in the way.
