I have a Packard bell PC and when the PC is running there is knocking sounds coming from it,its not the usual sounds you hear when data is being read from it,also the PC freezes for that period and then when the noises stops the PC is ok again. I have replaced the harddisk already and didnt make a difference.when scandisk is run now there are bad sectors on this new HDD.

the noise could be the fan on it's way out
