Open as in open the side panel or open as knock it on?

If you mean 2 mins after knocking it on then it is possible you have a virus. Boot up into safe mode and run a virus scan, if you have a virus the virus scanner should get rid of it for you

If you mean you opened the case, then it started knocking itself off ever 2 mins or so, then check everything inside the caase and, as Cartman said, check your temps

Could be just a CPU heatsink that has been set unproperly. Did that once. Took me hours to figure out the problem. I was a real idiot back then.

But then again i was trying to install a heatsink backwards yesterday. Nearly broke my die. lol

That sounds like the answer too me. Don't know whether in two minutes you'll be able to get it all up. Maybe if you set your homepage to windowsupdate.microsoft.com and set the Explorer to start up on Boot.

It is a bugger, not much you can do to check in that time. How old is the PC?

The Sasser virus doesnt give you the blue screen of de#th.

It just pops up a little error screen. You can still use your comp as long as you dont reply to the error.

My parents had no antivirus software on their laptop. That virus wasted hours of my time. If i ever see that dork who wrote that program Ill stangle his little neck.

People who make viruses are so stupid. A cool video game mod would be one where you go around with a shotgun blowing away h#ckers.

Look at me Im a h#cker. Dogde this says the shotgun. Splat goes the h#cker. Now that would be sweet.

all my semi vulgar phrases are gone.

there now you can actually understand this.
