Something has gone wrong. My computer has been working fine all day up until about an hour ago. I tried to make a post on a site I was on when all of a sudden everything slowed down. It took 5 minutes for the post to show up on the forum. I went to another site and had the same trouble.
As a side note, just prior to the computer slowing down I had sounds coming out of my speakers. It sounded like a pin ball machine. Boing, boing, boing and then my printer made noises as if I had turned it on.
I decided to restart. When I did the dell logo showed for a second and then the screen went black and had a white light (cursur)flashing in the top left corner of the screen. About 10 minutes later Windows started to load. That took at least 5 minutes. I then connected to the Internet. That took at least another 5 and then another 5 to get on this site. When I clicked on the XP forum and then new topic that took at least 10 minutes. By the way the speakers and printer just made the same noises.
This morning I ran Microsoft Essentials, Malwarebytes and SAS and they all came up clean.
I have XP Home, SP-3, 8
I am trying to add everything I can think of to this post since it takes so long to get it up.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. If I don't answer right back, I am trying but waiting on this computer.
Thanks for your time,
