Hello ... If anyone would have any insight to this issue, I would appreciate any feedback:
Running Vista and computer fan has been running intermittently fast and loud for about a week. Computer has been running fine, all programs load and run with no trouble. Computer doesn't feel hot to touch, feel air in fan areas being moved. Last night computer showed black screen saying "one of your discs need to be checked for consistency." It recommended to let the computer check C - did that and it came up with several pages of things it had checked - orphan files, etc., that mean little to me. At the end it tried rebooting and Windows wouldn't start. I manually shut computer off (wouldn't accept Con/Alt/Del), turned back on, nothing. Tried again and it slowly slowly slowly came up. All programs intact, running good now, but can hear something trying to engage in tower as it does when it is first booting up in the a.m. Very concerned next time it won't reboot. Have backed up documents, etc. Looking for any suggestions as I have a 24/7 home-based business, all computer related.
Thank you in advance.
