    I noticed that when my computer went to sleep mode that it had album covers from iTunes up as a screensaver. It has never done that before, just went to a black screen. Then when I opened iTunes it couldn't find 3/4 of the files for the songs I have. What is going on?

    Where are your music files located? Make sure you have the right selection made in:
    iTunes > Preferences > Advanced > iTunes Media folder location​
    Also, if any music files are on an external drive, make sure that drive is mounted properly before launching iTunes.

    Itunes/Itunes music. It appears to be correct. I haven't changed anything. I haven't even been in iTunes for a few days.

    If your files are there and your preferences are set properly, quit iTunes and restart it. If that doesn't help, restart your computer.

    Thanks GGJ, I quit Itunes and reopened and everything for now is good. Weird! Any idea what happened?
