It started when I tried to install my scanner, a Vissioneer 7600. Everytime I tried to use a CD or DVD it locked up. ctrl alt delete won't work, had to push power to shut off and restart. I went to add/remove programs to take off the scanner and couldn't find it. Now it won't boot at all, just sings this high pitched continous sound. Also, when it was working, I couldn't get anywhere online. All I get is "page cannot be displayed".

Perform a System Restore from Safe Mode selecting a date before you install the scanner.

When powering on the PC depress F8 after the hardware is listed to access the Boot menu so you can access Safe Mode.

Also, I can't even get that far, it sings, and all I have is a black screen.

A System Restore does not affect data, it just restores the Windows settings.

Have you powered down the PC for serveral minutes and tried again?

If so and it is still singing then most likely your hard drive has gone bad. Try booting the PC with a MS-DOS or Windows 98 boot diskette to see if the problem is maybe a power supply problem.
