This only happens some time when I reboot. My computer beeps at me and from what i have already read on the fourms this is not a good sign. Ok when I try to power on my computer the screen stays black and after I press the power button I get a series of beeps it goes Bepp pause Beep Beep Beep pause Beep Beep Beep pause Beep then nothing happens, but the power light stays on. Till i hit the power button then it turns off and when I try to boot up again the same thing happens. Then sometimes it will just magically Boot up. Any help you could give me would be great. Thanks a bunch.

Not much I think, I imagine you just restarted to comp each time, check to see if it is connected firmly, do a clean up process of the comp, delete the contents of the prefetch folder, check keyboard driver in devmgmt.msc, try a different keyboard to see if you get the same results, etc.

How was the drivers in device manager, did you delete the contents of the prefetch, have you downloaded cleanup from this site on

http://www.geekstogo....Log-t2852.html

Some questions, was this alway happening, is it under warrenty, has the maker's site reported any known bugs, on the same site is there a driver update that might clear this?

Also, my fault for not asking exact make and model please?
