Either way, and opportunity to buy a new computer yay!
I was thinking it might be broken. Are you sure?!

I thought it was the video card, so I replaced it. Well, the new one has a larger heat sink and no fan, so at least it's quieter. The PC's less than 2 years old, and was a mild gaming computer, so when it's running, it runs great and processes quickly. Of course... I have to get it running first.

As WT pointed out, an exorcism just might be what it needs.

After I changed to the silent video card, I thought I heard something coming from the power supply, then I realized that a cord was rattling on the edge of it.

Thank goodness for that or I wouldn't be able to sit here and type on this little netbook, which costs less than half of what my iPad was when it was new.
