Hey all ive just been given my pa's old intel celleron. Its got about 800mhz, 300mb of ram, 20gig hdd, cd rom, floppy and an 8mb internal video card. From the moment i plugged it in i realised something was going well. When i plugged it in it was very loud and i didnt even have to press the power button for it to turn on. It took a long time to boot up so when it loaded up i deleted a lot of the crap and lowered the resolution. Now i tried to shut it down but it got to the windows is shutting down screen and froze. It sounded like the hdd stopped but everything else was still being noisy. So i switched it off at the board. When i switched the board back on it didnt really boot up. The hdd and power supply were running very loudly but the cpu was stand still. I tried pressing the buttons but they pretty much kept resetting it to nothing. I then took the power plug out and put it back in a couple of times to try and get it to boot up, and it did. Now i need to fix this problem and how it isnt shutting down because it is veeery annoying. I mean I cant even let it sit not even turned on without turning it off at the wall overnight without it being noisy. Has anyone else had this problem and or know how to fix it? By the way im running windows xp sp2 with an intel celleron r chipset if that helps.
