I normally leave my computer on all the time. This morning, found it turned off. I tried to turn it on, and each time, usual startup screen.. memory etc, then the windows logo.. and after that just a black screen with the pointer in the middle. This happened a couple of times. Switched off, and tried after 15 minutes, its now working, but the loading up etc has become very slow.
Wonder if its trying to tell me something!!!
I have XP professional, Installed AVG antivirus(free), and ZA(free)yesterday after uninstalling Norton Internet Security yesterday from the add/remove programs.
I am a relative newbie. Any help would be really appreciated.
