Default Is this problem caused by my computer?

Sometimes (about once every 3 days) when i turn the engine over instead of starting all lights go dim and I can hear a buzzing sound. I disconnent the battery and reconnect and it starts right up. Ever heard of this anyone?

You might want to check your ground cable from the battery to the block. Check for clean and tight.

Sounds like a weak battery, bad starter, or bad starter solenoid.
