  1. ok hey guys first of all my english sucks a bit and I have no idea where to post this thread, so i hope i got the right place here.
    would be great if you could answer as simple as possible
    because not only that im a hardwarenoob but i have no idea of
    the english terms for my equipment..

    ok ive got:
    winXP
    intel core2duo (2x 2.13)
    2gig ddr2
    svicepack3
    radeonx1300pro
    and some kind of mainboard Oo
    basically Dell Dimension E520

    this system ran great for now about 3-4 years but then:

    i watched some utube clips on firefox, my screen froze and the pc began to beep. was one long beep untill i shutted down.

    after rebooting i got a bluescreen, telling me that the system would shut down again, in order not to damage my computer. I restarted it then @~ last working configuration(something like this)~ and it worked, but reeally slow. all my data was available

    though the cpu rate@ taskmanager was between 0-10% the system seemed to work hardly, what i could simply hear. no task was performed but though it was very noisy. 2mins later the screen froze again, the beeping began, but this time repeating short beeps, i shutted it down.

    i opened the casing, cleaned it, booted the system and it occured again.

    some guy said my RAM could be damaged, so i tried to run all my 4 modules single. but its not working well with any of them. BUT its not freezing / beeping any more, simply not working or better reaaally slowly. runs no applications any more aand every task would soon "not respond"

    i dont know what to do, need my data soon, im close to some veery important exams.. hope you can help me out, and you understand what im saying
