Start up problems

  southy 19:06 28 May 05

Somtimes when you turn on the computer we get a loud grinding noise, and we have to turn off the computer. It does this a few times then works ok, but the computer is very slow.
Any ideas what is wrong and how to cure it.

Is the grinding noise real or a played sound?

Let's hope it's not the hard drive! Back everything up as a matter of urgency.

It could be just a fan, but as you say it is running slowly...
