PC Wont start after install new HD


I just installed a new WD blue 1TB hard drive into my DELL computer. after i had installed windows 7 and drivers, it shut down randomly. I try to do a dell diagnostics , but it shutdown during the diagnostic test. now it will not boot and it makes loud noise (sounds like *** cleaner).

Dell XPS 8500, OEM Windows 7 64-bit installed, nvidia geforce GT640.

Can someone assist me step by step? thank you in advance!

Hello mate now if the drive is making a loud noise then I would hazard a guess at it being faulty I would contact whoever you got it from a for a replacement.

In reality the noise it does make should only be just discernible and tta that a slight whirring sound and maybe some odd ticking clicking noises.

Have you tried touching the device while it is making the noise?? it too should only be very faint vibrations and clicking sensations.
