hey,

um... your hard drives may have shiffted in place.

you can try cracking open the computer and making sure everything is in its right slots and properly secure.

MAKE SURE YOU FOLLOW THE PROPER PRECAUTIONS!!

What kind of computer do you have, and what is the OS? They're not all exactly alike. You have some diagnostics on your computer, in System Tools, run disk cleanup and scandisk if you can. turn off any screensavers. If you can go to the maker's website and download any diagnostics, if they didn't provide any with the computer.

We can try to help you more but you need to tell us more about the machine first.

i looked at my drives, everythings in place.
when i turn it on, its kinda weird, it just sits there and does nothing for about 20 seconds, then it beeps. eventually the monitor will refresh and turn on. but thats only after about 20 minutes playing with it. Any ideas on whats wrong with it? :tazz:
