Crazy sounds should have nothing to do with Windows. Maybe wires rubbing on fans? If you here a high pitched screech that may be an indication the computer is overheating. Beeps mean different things depending on the code.

How do you clean you computer? Do you mean clean up files?

You should periodically use compressed air to blow out the inside of the case. Also blow out the power supply from both ends.

There is no good reason to re-install Windows in your case.

Download and run both Ccleaner Slim and Malwarebytes. Use both the cleaner and registry modules in Ccleaner. Get both at the links below.

You cannot format the hard drive that Windows is installed on without removing Windows itself, since formatting deletes everything that's on the drive.

If you've got a factory recovery partition on the drive, you can perform a factory recovery which will format the drive and re-install a fresh Windows 7. The procedure for doing that varies on different makes of computer.

Back up all your data files to another location before doing the recovery!
