    After restarting my computer today (with no prior problems) I've been having this problem where it'll load up to the desktop, then make a loud beep and then shut off. Anyone know what that can be? Sorry I don't have more details, but that's all that happens.

    Your computer doesn't like you.

    turn off your BIOS and shadowing. If it's not that open up your PC, take out your Hard-drive clean it and put it back in. That worked for me. Let me know what happens.

    Thanks for the tip, but it actually just started working again without me doing anything to it. Though the fan sounds quieter, it seems to be working fine.

    I'd still clean out the hard drive and reset it (unplug it from the motherboard and power source then replug it) just in case it happens again.
