I have a Gateway P3 450 with 320 megs of ram. Running Win 98
It works fine BUT! Whenever I reboot or start up I get my normal Gate Logo/ then the black screen with the bios info on then another black screen/here lies the problem. when this black screen goes to windows logo, well just befor the black screen gets a little blue dot in the middle. Then it goes to Logo and another black screen with the little blue dot in the middle then on to windows. Also on boot every now and then I get one beep. Not always. The blue dot is also there on shutdown. Also every now and then my PC will give a clicking sound. If you have ICQ it is like the typing sound from it. I do have ICQ but whenever this happens I make sure ICQ is not running in the background.
Have Norton and is updated daily. Went to online scan and everything checks out ok. Have Adaware and run it daily.
So do I have something to worry about? Like I said the PC seems to run ok.

Well I narrowed down the clicking noise. It seems to be only on this site and it seems to be one of the banners. That was easy but I still don't understand where the little blue dot comes from.
