I was watching a movie last night when my computer froze, Ctrl Alt Dlt didn't work so I powered it off.
Upon powering it back on, nothing shows up on the monitor, a green light by the CD Rom is flashing quickly, and a very fast beep is coming from inside the computer (steady beep, a couple per second).
It does this every time.
The same day I had installed an external hard drive, but hadn't gotten around to using it yet. I bought it so I could back up my files, because none of them are backed up.
Any ideas? Did I lose my files?
