Beeps at startup, distorted/frozen screen

Had a new HDD installed on my laptop a few weeks ago, since then it periodically shuts down completely and randomly. Upon turning it back on, it beeps 4 loud times continuously until I restart again. Also, it will simply freeze the image on the screen and distort it, sort of like an old tv screen that had poor signal.

Make and model of laptop will help, then we can google the beep code at start up. This should lead us to the issue.

4 beeps = memory failure might be wort removing and refitting the memory pehaps it was disturbed when fitting the new HDD.
