What kind of noise is it making, exactly? Is it really loud? One of the first things to do if you suspect a hard drive problem is to back everything up.

Any Sound from a HDD is bad. It means it is about to fail. Be sure to backup all files on it, and replace as soon as possible.

Flickering may be due to power issues. Power can kill a hard drive. Power can kill RAM too.

If the PSU killed one DIMM, it can kill another.

Ramanan
Post the manufacturer, model and rated power output of the PSU and we can give you opinions on whether or not we think it is adequate for your system. A UPS will not solve the problem of bad/intermittant and low power. Typically, most OEM (factory) PSU's are junk, and the solution is to replace them with a good-quality PSU. However the noise from the HD is still the primary concern. A new PSU will not repair a HD that is getting ready to fail.

Also the 100% CPU is a concern. Use ctrl+alt+del to launch Task Manager, and report what process is using the most CPU.

Run chkdsk 3X and report of it completes the scans and whether it finds & repairs any errors or not. Report results here.
