Re: something too loud

If that's the fan, it could be it's turning too hot inside. Things to check:
- are the fans clean and do they work (all fans)
- what's the CPU usage (check in task manager). If it's consistently high when you're doing nothing special, something is wrong. What process is causing that high CPU usage?
- how's the heat paste on the CPU? Refresh if necessary.

it a heat issue that causing your error. as the pc been on it already warm then it shuts down quicker. the noise is the gpu or cpu fan running at full speed to cool your parts.

Thank all, my fan and CPU are very clean I always remove dirts from them. I think it may be the OS itself.

Re: OS itself

If you think it's the OS, you refresh that.

In my answer above I noted three things. You say that it isn't the first, and I believe that. So now my guess is one of the other two.
