Hi, I'm not really sure where I should post this problem as it didn't seem to fit into any of the categories but I'll try here...
When I switch my PC on, the lights all come on and I can hear what I assume is the CD drive whirring, but it won't load up. For a while I have been using the 'hit it and see' method of repair and generally this seems to work, however lately it has been taking upto 2 hours for the computer to finally load. It doesn't happen every time either, the PC might load fine for a week and then for a week or two I have these problems again. Once the HP screen comes up the computer seems to load fine and there are never any problems.
I am not sure if it's connected or not, but a couple of times recently I have had the following error message when Windows (XP) has loaded:
Windows: No Disk
Exception Processing Message c0000013 parameters 75b6bf7c 4 75b6bf7c 75b6bf7c
It allows me to 'Continue' and I don't suffer any further problems.
If anyone has any suggestions as to what could be the problem I would be very grateful.
