I bought maybe a month ago a Notebook Pavillion now it takes an hour for the Laptop to start and then says this:" The application is not responding. The program may respond again if you wait. Do you want to end this process?" Am not sure what it is doing and before this it has been shutting itself off. Now I can not really do anything besides stare at my screen. None of my applications such as Chrome are able to open, and there is this sound coming from my laptop. Really weird, anywho hope this sounds familiar to anyone? Can i fix it myself or should I return it to the store?

Your hard drive is dying. (assuming the sound is not the fan, which you just have to see if it runs hot to know) If it is the HDD you could just buy a new one for the notebook model http://www.amazon.co.uk/Hard-Drive-5.../dp/B008VBU10O

Return it to the store. This could be a software problem or a hardware problem, possibly a defective hard drive.

Backup the hard drive to an external hard drive FIRST then check the hard drive with checkdisk and run system file checker.

If it is a hardware problem they will probably replace the unit for free.
