Hey there,

This sounds like a problem with your hard drive, especially the sounds you are receiving as well as the hang up The sudden loss of power could have caused this but I highly doubt that, you may need to upgrade to a new hard drive, but will know for sure by having a diagnostics test run on your hd.

Good Luck!!
