The click is not continuious. It will click once or twice with a beep-like sound and then before I know it my computer freezes up. The mouse and keyboard stop working. The click stops working, etc.
At one time it was happening fairly frequently, but then I took it over to my mom to clean up. She added in a different hard drive to be the main drive. For a while the problem seemed to be resolved, but this week it's happening again. I had it happen about 2 or 3 times yesterday and once today already.
Mom thought it has to do with my web surfing habbits, because I go varrious places and often have several instances of ie or firefox, or both, and ech instance of firefox may have mutiple tabs open.
But then when I had the freeze up problem before, sometimes it would happen even if my computer was idle.
Yesterday it did another freak thing. i started it up and it loaded my boot program saying that some settings where changed in my boot system, press F1 or something, to save. It mentioned something about either unix or lenux, even though the computer never had either of those installed. It has always had windows xp. The original operating system was xp home, but then changed to be windows xp.
I was wondering is my computer beginning to suffer the signs of hard drive failure?
Anyways I think I'm going to be getting new drives soon, because this scares me.
