Nice one for Christmas Eve.My friend just called me with his problem: His PC refuses to boot up after being idle for some months. Win98. It emits regularly a long "beep" which presumably is an indication of some sort,but what? Nothing appears on the monitor but the Hard Drive neon shows activity for a short time.Is anyone able to help,just by pointing in the right direction perhaps.Maybe a quick note to Father Christmas may be the answer! Thanks and Merry Christmas to everyone.
