    So today i was bored and decided to play call of duty via windows xp via bootcamp. I had been playing for about 10 minutes when i had to eat dinner, i left the game running and when i got back about 15 minutes later the computer was turned off. It wasnt plugged into the wall but when i started using it i had 100% battery life. I thought maybe brother turned it off or something but it wouldnt turn back on, so i took it upstairs and plugged it in, started it her up and, WHAT. WHen i turned it on it made a terrible screaching beeping noise, it went to the login window normally and i logged in, when i got to my account i got the beachball for about a minute and then everything was fine. It seems fine now and it was probably nothing but my batterly lasted all of 30 minutes and then that screaching noise.

    Nways just thought i would put it up here, everything is fine now but it was kinda weird.


    btw i had to repair my disk yesterday with the install cd's if that may have had anything to do with it.

    Ah yes, did you happen to glance at your battery charge then? It is possible that because you were playing games on the MB (which I assure you it is not well equipped to do) that the MB eventually got hot from all the processing and turned on the fans full blast effectively killing you battery very quickly or something to that tune (I used to calibrate my old MB's battery by playing games on it). As for the screech, it was prolly something leftover from the sudden shutdown (windows doesn't do safe sleep). Oh well, as long as it works fine :D
