After seeing a report on hacking, I decided to change my password and reinstall Snow Leopard. About halfway through the install, my machine tried to reboot and failed to do so. The video signal gets all weird and the machine puts itself to sleep and ends the process. I was wondering if I might have been hacked or am I just being paranoid. On the first try, I heard some weird banjo music straight out of the twilight zone. Then nothing. It just tries for a few seconds then goes to sleep.

Any advice? I have never seen anything like this in my almost twenty years of owning machines, but then I have never had a virus before.
