    Angry urgent computer help needed

    hi peoples. I've broke my pc. Don't know how. Checked my emails this morning, switched off outlook, left computer running as the system scanner was due to start at nine, took my oldest to school, had a round of golf, came home at 1 o'clock to a black screen. I tried shutting down. Nothing. Switched off and back on, same black screen, 9 clicks from the tower, then a black screen with a flashing cursor in the top corner. Help. I'm sending this in desperation from my phone. Please help me, ps i'm a computer idiot, so baby english please. Ta in advance. Stuart

    ~When you say 9 clicks do you mean beeps, mate it sounds like a whole list of different things it could be. what i would try is to maybe re-sit (take out and put back in) your memory theses are long sticks approx 4" in length and normally you will have 2 or more in your systems. Also if you have a standard 56K modem try taking that out as well. let me know anyway mate!

    I was just gonna suggest that , take the panel off and check everything is located soundly i.e multiplugs /graphics card /memory etc .

    I recently got the blue screen of death and had to format and reinstall everything.
    Make sure you turn power off tho.

    It does sound like the click of death, meaning the HDD has shuffled off this mortal coil.

    Does the PC still POST? If so, can you get into the BIOS & check if the HDD is detected there?

    If you give us some more info on the specs, we can probably help more.

    I believe it should say something regarding your hd etc , this shows that it is working and recognised by the system etc , if it aint there I presume your hd is kapput .

    Hope I remembered everything something like .
