This is a curly one. My grandfathers PC (XP Home SP2) won't boot in the morning. The machine beeps for 7 and then silent for about 4 secs. (can't F8 or enter bios) It's an award bios. I've looked up beep codes for that bios and haven't seen one with that description. The stranger thing is if you keep attempting to boot, it will eventually get a successful boot after about 30 mins of trying. After the machine has booted successfully you can then shut down and restart and it'll boot first time no problems. But the next morning same problem. Old Pops thinks it's like an old car that needs to be warmed up, maybe a bit of choke could help Here is what I've tried to no avail. * Flashed the bios * Tried different RAM * Updated his Graphics Card (introduced him to the world of Flight Sim) * Told him to never shutdown his PC ever again and there won't be a problem (he thinks it's unsafe to leave it running) Any ideas??
