Help! My computer sometimes growls while booting up. Has anyone ever heard of this before? Also, at one time it was so bad that Windows did a special disc check while booting up and told me that a serious error had occurred. However, my computer hasn't 'growled' for a while during bootup...but what I would like to know is: Does this sound like a hardware problem to anyone? And if so, could this 'growling' sound be an indication that my computer is starting to get old and that I may need a new computer? Also, I never did get around to installing the 100 MB of RAM that I needed for this computer. But if this growling sound is an indication that my computer is going bad, then obviously, I wouldn't want to invest in the RAM. Also, I wanted to mention that my computer is in it's 6th year. Any comments would be appreciated.
