Ok, now this may all seem a little superficiel and under-explained but this is what happened to me. I have windows xp home edition installed on my laptop (Acer Travelmate 2420) and i was typing a text using Corel wordperfect 2003, when all of sudden my computer just shut itsel down completely. At first i thought something burnt on the inside but then, i just turned it back on and this is when it gets complicated because i only caught glimpses of what happened next. Instead of booting normally, at the blue "welcome" screen, there was a bunch of messages and a loading percentage number. This is a few of the messages i was able to catch: disk fat32, IE display item[1], temporary internet files.... And then after the percentage loading was compete my computer loaded as usually, of course i lost the text I was writing, but everything else seemed fined, i didn't get any error messages and all my previous files seemed ok. Now I realise this may be hard for you guys to analyse but does anybody have a clue what might have happened? I would really hate it if it happened again... And i would just like to point out that I tend to stay away from all malicious web sites to keep my computer as effecient as possible and i have norton 2006 installed. Please any help will be greatly appreciated, I trust GeeksToGo more than Microsoft!!! thx
