I know I should know this but just had family emergency that has my mind in another place. Here's the deal... This ran smoothly until last Saturday when I noticed the boot sequence started to take more time and display all the post info which I had previously bypassed. It also was taking more time to display the windows splash screen but would then pause as if Windows was taking longer to load. Eventually Windows would load but I knew something was wrong.
The emergency hit later that day and I did not get to this until this morning. The same thing happened as before only this time the screen stayed dark and I was unable to access the login screen. I did notice my computer beeped once when I powered it on (I know that is significant, but as I said my mind has been pre-occupied). After three more attempts I was finally able to access windows and did proceed to troubleshoot the software end...
I know this is probably a simple fix that I am missing, but I would greatly appreciate any help. Thanks again and my apologies in advance for sounding like a doofus.
