recently, my laptop started to make weird noises. i thought it was nothing serious, so i just ignored it. but yesterday, it got a lot worse. in the middle of my work,i got a blue screen (not the blue screen of death, but a different one sayin something about hardware problems. it would then automatically restart my laptop). now, it's so bad that when i turn on my laptop, it goes to the Windows XP loading screen, stays there for a minute, shows me the blue screen for a split-second, then restarts! i tried like 5 times, but the same thing keeps happening to me. i even tried safe mode, but it just freezes and doesn't do anything :Cry:
so now, whats happening is that i turn it on the laptops makes some weird scratchy noises, displays the screen that says Boot in safe mode, last known good config, or boot normally. i tried all of these but nothing works. after that screen, it shows the black windows XP loading screen, then the whole cycle starts again :icon_sad:
i think this is a hardware problem, but i am unsure...
does anyone know what the problem is or how to fix it? i even tried to open up the laptp but i couldn't figured out how :razz:
im using an Emachines M5132 laptop
thanks, help is greatly appreciated!!!
