Desktop Startup and Shutdown almost immediately

Hi,

I have a problem with my desktop. The desktop will startup (nothing on the monitor) and there's light on the motherboard and power supply to the fan and all components but after like 10 seconds it will auto shutdown. I tried changing the a new fan for the CPU as i realised the old one was faulty and also tried changing the BIOS battery but nothing work. Could kindly assist? Thanks.

- did you check your monitor is working?
- disassemble and assemble your hardware and properly installed but first you need to clean all parts.
- when you try to test again disconnect the Hard Disk only try to make a display for safety.
- make sure all parts is properly inserted.

Monitor comes on then turns itself off yet power switch remains lit. email popluck18@windstream.net


First, check all connections carefully.

Have you reinstalled the monitor using the disk that came with the system?
Try getting off the internet and turning off your virus control before installation. Also, make sure there are not a lot of programs running in the background. You can check what is running by right clicking on your desktop. You can unclick anything that has nothing to do with the system or windows, such as programs that you have installed etc. You can go back afterwards and recheck them, for immediate startup.

I hope this helps.

Reboot your PC and immediately start tapping the F8 key, then choose to start in safe mode. Now click the start button, then click run. Type MSCONFIG and choose startup programs and disable all startup programs and see if it boots ok. If it does you can retype msconfig and one at a time re-enable your startup programs until you find the one that makes your PC hang and reboot, Keep that one turned off after you find it, and re-enable the rest of your startup items.

Dell Dimension 9200 beeps on startup, with nothing...


A beep code of 3-3-4= Video Memory(RAM) Test Failure that would explain why you get nothing on your screen the first thing you would need to do is disconnect your monitor and try it on another computer. if it works fine then the problem is your video card. If that the case and the video card is intergrated with the motherboard, you will need to repalce the motherboard --- Sorry-- Please vote me a 10 when this works

The screen went blank/black no image, and power light still on. Can this condition be repaired?


Yes. Any TV/video repair store should have a qualified technician. Or, contact Apple, and find the nearest "authorized' service-outlet to you.

You can either try to reset the BIOS, or have the restore cd fix it for you. By the way, what does the message say?
