I was on my computer this morning.. finishing up crap from last night.. spent 6 hours trying to find a screen capture program that worked.. then a converter thing.. and ugh it sucked.. and after thosde 6 hours i started and finished the WHOLE PROJECT in 2 MINUTES using windows movie maker. -_- i hate my life XD

So anyway.. my computer makes this REALLY weird noise.. like the harddrive or something.. some.. watery type thing that got LOUDER and then went soft..

and im like crap O_O..

so i turn it off.. and i get on my laptop to mess with that.. and it WONT even turn on.. so its like exploded..

So i get back on main compy.. and backup everything..

its working... ~OK~ for the time being.. but.. meh..

So anyway i get on Myspace and this guy sent me a message...

I forgot that one (Feiss) [Big Grin] LMAO

First off "Myspace"..... we need to talk.

Anyways the detionation of your computer, pull the cover check the fans, make sure they all spin when its turned on.

If not replace them. it may solve your problem

I had a similar problem last year with my (now defunct) K6-2 tower.

I was browsing the Sun homepage looking for OOo and BOOM! My PSU exploded. It was really scary.
Fortunately my hard drive was safe so no data was lost.

I bought a new one an travelled to Bogota the month after to a Math Olympiad when my mom told me the new PSU died. It was hell getting to the computer store to make the warranty effective, because I lost the ticket and I forgot the exat day I bought it. Anyway, after much plea I got a new one, and 5 months later the MoBo gets fsked up.

Anyway, I was lucky I got a HP dx2200 as a prize in the National Spelling Contest at the same time, but not lucky enough to have a defective hard drive. It was another warranty hell, they replaced it, and then re-replaced it with the MoBo, now I'm missing her... Far from her...
