My computer has 4 major components in failure, and i dunno how long it will last with it messed up like it is. The processors being funky, the fans being super quiet, even when my space heaters on, the motherboard is slightly cracked, and the BIOS is saying that the hard drive's about to fail.
Long-formatting is out of the question: took 5 hours to get to 99%, i ended up having to quick-format it, but I know that the thing wont last and its NOT worth replacing this part or that part, already looked into a new computer, but the question I have is, will this one hang on long enough for me to have the other one, which is expected to be in early May.
An idea of a timeline with these problems would be helpful.

Re: 4 components in failure, now what?
Well as for the hard drive,, the laptop im currently on, also warns me of an impending hard drive failure and to back up all data when i start the laptop and ive been using it for several months this way, although i DO NOT keep anything important on here as it can completely fail at any time. As for the motherboard,, im surprized its still workign at all if its cracked so im guessing that wont last too much longer. And as for the fans,, its possible that either your processor is acting funny because its overheating due to the fans not spinning as fast as they should be,,, or your processor could just be shot.

If you put in a hard drive that already had an OS on it and such, it won't work since the new computer has different parts from the last. You will have to buy Windows 7, or obtain windows through some method of your choice and do a clean install. Sorry buddy.

Phoenix Beep Codes
Phoenix uses sequences of beeps to indicate problems. The "-" between each number below indicates a pause between each beep sequence. For example, 1-2-3 indicates one beep, followed by a pause and three beeps. Phoenix version before 4.x use 3-beep codes, while Phoenix versions starting with 4.x use 4-beep codes.

Please be a little more specific as to when you are recieving the error and word for word exactly what it says. Its hard to determine if it is a hardware or a software failure at this point. You could try booting off a windows xp disc, going into the recovery console and using the command chkdsk /p /r, it will try and locate bad sectors on the harddrive and fix them. I should let you know that harddrives are usually the first hardware component to fail in computers and have a life expectancy of 3-5 years.
This monitor is start to have intermittent operation due to component failure. This may be from overheating or aging. The unit should be taken to a service center that has service information for this model monitor and thoroughly tested for possible component damage.This should be done before the situation get worse and causes a major failure of the boards. I hope this information helps you with your problem.
If you are on your original fuel pump, be advised that they are known to last, on average, about 100,000 miles. Another common fault, besides that and the direct ignition cassette you have already mentioned, is the crankshaft position sensor. The prelude to total failure of this component may prevent starting or cause stalling and rough running. The ECU needs the signal from this sensor to know when to signal the DIC to fire a particular plug.
Sounds like either a defective valve or that the components to it have misaligned. Inspect all valves and other parts. If some look different from the majority, replace them. Do not use the unit until you do.
