Forget this forum. You need to be talking warranty with the place you purchased it.

At three weeks old I would definitely be knocking on the door of whoever I bought the computer from. Not to get it fixed but to get it replaced.

Neither Malware or any other software cause the "sound of sparks".

You have a hardware fault, ie "the machine itself" is faulty. When this happens the software cannot interpret anything properly hence the misleading figures.

Take it back and make sure you mention the sparks you heard. There is clearly an electrical fault.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
