    It could be that the fan is jammed, that would explain the noise. I would recommend opening up your PC and checking the fan.

    The most likely cause is overheating, the reason it returns to working order is becuase it cooled down, the bios detects a CPU related crash and then tells you that it happened. Overheating is dangerous for CPUs so try to not use the computer until you get it working again.
    If you say you have no great knowledge of computers you will likely have not overclocked it which rules out one of the major reasons for heat change leaving us with broken/bad setup and either could have happened:
    Take the fan off and reseat it, if you used thermal paste then scrape what is there off and add a new layer. Also do as sinkhead says and make sure the fan is working properly.

    A program to measure temperature and possibly fan speed (depending on your setup), your manual for the CPU (search online if you have to) will tell you what temperature it should run at but ballpark figures say you should not really exceed 55 degrees C external or 85 internal under full load:
