    I'm sitting in class and was pulling a file from the desktop to a 128MB memory stick, unmounted the stick, and pulled it out.... 5 seconds later I get a watermark error screen in 5 laugauges stating I need to restart the machine by holding the power button down!!!! I nearly **** myself!!!

    It started back up and gave nothing on the monitor, a low level beeep, and 5 quick flashes on the sleep light on the open latch button and shut back down!!! I think I had the heart attack there!

    I turned it back on again, and it's FINE! What happened? Can I see a log or run any tests?

    Usually you get one a year if your lucky.
