Hello, my Desktop Pc has devloped a few problems lately
Occasionally when I switch it on it gets to the blue welcome screen, then displays 'preparing network connections' for a few seconds before switching itself off again. This also happens if I try starting up in safe mode. I have found a work around on the internet, by plugging in an external hard drive before the blue screen comes on the network connections message doesn't appear, and I can load up my computer normally. The Pc is then fine until I either have to turn it off without shutting down properly, or if I am using too many programs at once in which case it switches itself off and I get the 'preparing network connections' message again.
Secondly if I need to restart the computer, as soon as the computer displays the bios screen it starts bleeping constantly. This does not go away until I switch the computer off. I am guessing these 2 problems are being caused by overheating?
I have only just got the computer to load up again from the network connection problem and have noticed it took a lot longer to load up than usual. My iphone will also no longer be recognised by itunes (it does however begin recharging so it is not a problem with the USB port)
