Computer "crashes" but I can't work out why

My old XP machine would do exactly the same thing on occasion. A click followed by a loud screeching from the speakers and everything locked up.

Only solution - hold power button and let it reboot.

Never did sort it, nothing in the crash reports or system events - I think it was down to one of the hard drives (due to the click) probably the system drive causing the lock up.
