Just got a new custom computer about a week ago, and…
The only strange thing thats happening to my computer at the moment is, well…
Of course know about the two lights in front of the tower. First light shows that the power is on, and the second light blinks whenever something is happening in your computer.
Well, I dunno how long this has been happening (could’ve been from the start for all I know), but the second light has blinks every second for no reason really. It’s strange because when it blinks like this it does not make a sound at all… its like the heartbeat of the motherboard or something.
It does not effect anything I’m doing (or so I hope so), but what could it mean?
I checked with all my virus scanners, reg scanners, and what not but they all show up with no threats.
The only strange thing I’ve encountered while I had my computer was an issue with Windows Update.
After updating my Norton 2006, it asked me to hit “Ok” to restart my computer so the updates can take a full effect. Well, I didn’t bother hitting “Ok”, instead I went ahead and went to windows update and decided to hit two birds with one stone seeing as how after the windows update I was going to be asked to restart anyways.
The update gave me a bunch of Hotfixes and Security programs that my windows supposedly needed. Once the downloading started, I went to bed.
When I woke up to check out my computer, I notice that Norton was corrupted and demanded that it should be re-installed. Not only that, but for some odd reason the windows update files stopped installing itself. And any attempts in installing the updates would give me a “failed” installment. So after re-installing Norton 2006, my updates continued to give me a “failed” installment errors. Once I restarted again and attempted a second time, all of a sudden the files were able to install. But what tripped me out was the fact that each file was 0 KB, yet it somehow was able to install itself.
Could this have been the problem?
If so, how do I undo the problem?
Or am I just paranoid? lol.
