And now less than 24 hours. My computer started beeping at me for no reason (my music suddenly stopped on its own, then everything started lagging, took multiple tries to get Task Manager to come up, then the beeping started), so I rebooted. When it came back and I went to dA, the error came back.

The beeping and lagging imply that there may be other issues at hand. If this is a new computer under warranty, I suggest you contact the vendor. Otherwise, you may want to do the following:

It may help to perform a SFC (System File Checker) scan which will check and fix any corrupted files on your system.

Steps to perform SFC scan:

1. Click the Start button
2. From the Start Menu, Click All programs > Accessories
3. In the Accessories menu, right-click on the Command Prompt option
4. From the drop down menu that appears, select the 'Run as administrator' option
5. Authorize any User Account Control (UAC) elevation request.
6. In the Command Prompt window, type: sfc /scannow (including the space rior to the backslash) and press Enter
7. A message will appear stating that 'The system scan will begin'
8. Be patient because the scan may take some time
9. If any files require replacing SFC will replace them. You may be asked to insert your Vista DVD for this process to continue
10. If everything is okay you should, after the scan, see the following message "Windows resource protection did not find any integrity violations"
11. After the scan has completed, close the command prompt window, restart the computer and check.

In addition, it may also be a good idea to run the Disk Cleanup tool:
  • Click start, type Disk Cleanup in the search box
  • Right-Click Disk Cleanup and select "Run as Administrator" and accept the UAC elevation prompt.
  • Select the drive where Windows is installed (if you have more than one drive) and click "OK".
  • When the scan completes, check/uncheck desired boxes.
  • Next, please click the More Options tab at the top.
  • Click the "Clean up..." button under the "System Restore and Shadow Copies" section at the bottom.
  • Click Delete in response to the question "Are you sure you want to delete all but the most recent restore point?", click OK and answer Yes again.
  • The disk clean up utility will remove the selected items. When it completes, please restart the computer to properly record the changes made to the hard disk.

The beeping and what not stopped, thankfully. HP hasnt been much help on anything. They cant suggest anything to fix this stupid error and damn near screwed up my entire system.

I think I'll still do this and see if it helps any.

The sfc scan doesnt say "windows protection did not find any integrity violations". But it took 2 seconds and didnt ask for the Vista disk (I'm also on Windows 7). This is what it did...

I'm sure you can tell me what all that is suppose to mean... I hope. I'm going to reboot, then do the disk cleanup.

Use "sfc /scannow" not "sfc / scannow".

4 days. I'm running the scan, properly now.

No violations. Rebooting didnt clear the error.

Its deviantart thats doing it again, as usual. Strangely though, when I go to an alternate page - such as my dA page, then go to the home dA page, the error clears out.

Since this started, have you had a problem at any other sites besides Deviant Art?

A couple, but its been mostly dA.

And theres no use in suggesting in me reporting it to them. They will simply tell me its on my end, probably even if I reproduce it in several browsers. They just dont care about their clients, paying or otherwise. They recently updated their look and when I (politely) expressed a dislike for a certain aspect of it and (politely) suggested an alternate, their reply was "Gee thanks, but deal with it."

And I'm not joking either, its that bad.

3 days.

Well this is freaking wonderful. So I'm in the middle of writing to dA about this, ready to tell them that its only happening on their site and give them a full on piece of my mind, when I go to use my fiancee's computer to see if I can replicate it on another computer (just to keep dA's mouth shut). Well, the net isnt working on his computer and while I'm trying to fix it I tell him I'm writing to dA about this and why.

That is when he tells me its happening to him as well, with the excuse that I never asked... despite me bringing it up multiple times. Gee... you would think if I'm b****ing about it all the time, he would think to tell me its happening to him too.

But, no. Of course not.

So.... now we know its across the ENTIRE network, not just me. Which means its a network issue. So it is either our net provider or the router. *beats her head against the wall*
