Answers :

I could go into a long explanation of how to troubleshoot the laptop but if it's only ten weeks old... take it back. if the noise you hear is like a ticking noise the hard drive may have quit.

Yes, at 10 weeks you should go back to the vendor.
\015\012
\015\012However, I will make an educated guess.
\015\012Overheating, fan seized. The fan might be failing which would explain the noise and cause the computer to shutdown to protect it from heat damage.
\015\012
\015\012Whether I am right or wrong, you will still want to get things fixed under warranty with the venor.
