It could possibly just be a corruption of your OS.. If your HDD was spooling you could have lost information on it.

We should wait and see if your machine will access safemode.

Well I just started my comp up in safe mode and it opened fine. I tried to get onto the internet to post but it would not let me ( I don't know if this is a feature of safemode)

The first time I tried to boot up I was recieving long beeping sounds from what appeared to be my hard drive. After two restarts the beeping went away and I was able to boot in safemode. So now that I am there what should I do now?

Boot to disk.
Select Install.
Then select the repair option.

yikes... Are you running xp ?

xp has safemode w/ networking.
You can temporaritly utilize this option for the time being.

Do you think your pops could send you the disk via mail or something ?

Yeah im runnin XP, I mean it's really not that big of a deal I make the drive from my moms to dads up to 5 times a week and it's about a 2 hour drive. I just had a few days planned out to stay and help my mom with a few things so the drive would take a day out of my highly imporant to do list other then play games. I am about to just run into town and just buy a new XP. My mom needs her own set anyways. And how do I turn on the networking in safemode?

If you have your cable plugged in , It should say it in the boot options.

Ok, thank you very much for all of your help, I am on my way into town to buy a new OS and will be back shortly with resluts. You guys are by far one of, if not the best tech forums around!
