Loud noise from ? computer

Computers normally whine or clatter, sometimes alarms sound for overheat.

Load bangs are usually terminal straight away.
CD breaking in drive, PSU dying or motherboard blowing.

The only thing I can think of is possibly hard drive heads catching on platters.

SO I suggest you back up anything important immeditely.
