Hey,

I have recently noticed that when i start up my computer there is a "buzzng" noise inside my computer (desktop), and in the initial computer loading stages (when it scans how much ram i have, etc), it says something like "check time/datsun not set" then when i am able to get through to my account, my computer's time is set to 11:30ish, and the date is somewhere in 2001.

The only way for me to have my date/time set correctly without changing it is to constantly turn my computer on/off until the buzzing noise stops (horrible idea, yes). When i turned it on this morning, my led fans were flashing and it seemed that my computer was constantly turning on/off and it was out of my control.


The last problem i have is that my power button in the front doesnt work when i try to turn on my comp, it just allows me to turn it off. I have no idea why.



Please help!!
