Sounds like the harddrive mechanics, if you go to the harddrive manufacturers website (not Medion) they will have a tool to test it. Here is example for Seagate harddrives this page tells you about it and has a tutorial to show you what to do.

I should have said that if the manufacturers tool shows that the harddrive is failing then you can go back to Medion and complain.

Could be the HDD - could also be the cooling fan.

Is this a Laptop or Desktop.

If it is a Desktop and you do not mind losing what guarrantee you have left, disconnect from the mains and remove cover. Start machine up and try to listen to where the noise is coming from. It may be something as simple as a cable rubbing on a fan, or a loose cover rattling.

Do not attempt to put your hand inside while it is running as you may damage the computer(and yourself).

If it is a Laptop, they normally require special tools and it is not advisable to attempt to repair it yourself.
