Windows xp media center buzzing sound..error event code 7 and code 51?
I was watching tv when the tower made a buzzing sound and then the screen went blue and the computer locked up. I had to hit the power buttons to turn it off and it took several tries to bring it back up. It is now as slow as a turtle and media center is flaking out with picture, sound, recording etc. I called Dell and then had me check the fan and hard drive with a quick check and that was ok. They said they couldn't do much more for me and told me it was a software issue. Bought a Maxtor to back-up system and Dell said to restore the computer to factory settings, at which I didn't want to do yet. My hubby checked the computer management event log and two codes popped out at the time this happened. Event ID 7 and Event ID 51. Any ideas?
