Hi -
Is this actually a problem ??
My XP SP3 will "Beep" twice as if starting to begin, and then 5 seconds later, restarting again, but it causes no actual problem.
I just live with this "quirky" little thing in my well used, reinstalled, older, computer - If it bothers you, try this (it may do nothing?) .........

Run a Disk Check on your C: drive in Windows XP:
•Click Start and open My Computer
Right-click on C: (or your main drive letter) and select Properties
•Click on the Tools tab
•Under Error-checking click the Check Now... button
•Mark the 2 boxes next to Automatically fix file system errors and Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors
•Click on the Start button
•When the message box pops up, click the Schedule disk check button and >> Restart your computer
•Once your computer restarts it will check the drive, don't press any keys so that it is allowed to do so

This will take (on average) 1 hour, so please let all 5 stages complete -

Thank You -

Hello Noknojon,

Yes, this is actually a problem! If something doesn't run in the way what it's supposed to be, it's a problem for me !
Back to the problem, I did what you adviced and "it didn't do anything" like you said.
Thanks for the reply anyway.
