Computer keeps restarting

Hello,
I installed a new maxtor drive and replaced the 256, and 500MB memory with 2 1G Memory cards.

I believe i didnt enter everything correctly in the bios screen upon initial power up bc i doubled pressed esc accidentally during configuration. Upon 2nd power up after this the computer was frozen.. 3rd power up everything worked fine for hours however the computer froze. It has frozen 2x within the past 5 hours since then.

I called it to help, it appears that they didnt do anything but check the drives however now my computer keeps restarting every couple minutes. It does stay on however in safe mode.

Any ideas?

Thanks

    I was able to start the procedure again, and after following the same procedure everything has been working great. Suspect I typed something in incorrectly during initial setup! Thanks for your suggestion.

Escape means that the changes were not saved.

Concerning the hd, it is possible to download a tool to verify its integrity. You can choose the version (bootable would be the best).

And for the memory stick, you could use the memtest86+ to verify if it is not the problem. I bought 2 memory sticks of 1 Gb each and there was one in problem. I had to test them individually, and found out the one was not good, after 8 hours of test.

Again, a bootable version is better.

Im having a problem with my Micro SD 4gb Memory card for my Samsung Intensity phone. I put it in my computer & it read just fine then I took it out & put it back in when the file for it wasnt...


simple rule....when a device / drive is reading a media (say CD disk, pen drive, memory card etc) never pull it out....

it spoils the media....

frequent changes to any media device will hamper it's quality and efficiency.....

the recent micro cards are so sensitive that even a small mis handling / hard handling will make it corrupt.....

the best option...buy another one...

My card is corrupted


Hello,

insert the card into a memory card reader and insert it into our computer's USB port. The computer will recognize and install the card reader.

After that, go to Start > My computer. You will find a drive representing the memory card reader. The drive might be E:, F;, or G;.

Right click on the drive, scroll to format, and allow the card be formatted.

Once it has successfully been formatted, it should be in order again.

Note that all the files on the card would be erased. There is even no point keeping such files because it mush have bee corrupted as well, since it is still in the card.

Good luck.

How instal maps on sd memori card for garmin nuvi 250


Hello

Insert the memory card into the memory card slot on Garmin Nuvi 250 GPS device. The memory card slot is located on the left side of the device. Push the card in until it clicks. (If you inserted a memory card that already has pre-installed maps and files, there is no further action required. The device will access the new maps based on the address you enter.)


Connect the Garmin GPS to the computer using the USB cable. The mini-USB connector will need to be inserted into the rear of the Nuvi 250; the larger end is inserted into the computer's USB port.


Locate the computer file that you want to download to the Garmin memory card. The Nuvi 250 is capable of reading JPEG formatted images and GPX formatted Waypoints and other mapping-related files. Right-click on it. Select "Copy."


Select the "Computer" folder from the computer's desktop Start menu. Double-click on the "Removable Disk" drive that represents the Garmin Nuvi.


Right-click in an empty space within the drive and select "Paste." The files have now downloaded to the memory card and will be accessible through the Nuvi 250 menu options.


Good Luck, and do rate the solution if got help

How do i get in safe mode if it keeps restarting after entering


Hello, sir your computer is in abnormal mode. Your memory is not functioning properly. If you may please remove the memory card and then clean it with an eraser, then put it again. If the situation is still restarting then you have to reformat your computer, it maybe because your computer was attacked with a virus.

My maxtor D740X-6l 40GB drive will not boot up. I can hook the drive up to another computer and read the files but it will not even show as a drive on the original computer. The first computer recognizes...


Hello,

all you have to do is to simply set the jumper at the back of he hard disk, beside where the IDE cable and power enter into the hard disk.

Just keep setting till you put at the right position where the system recognizes it.

There is nothing wrong with your PC and hard drive, just set the jumper of the Hard disk and that should be all.

Take care.

My nokia 3110c always restart when my memory is inserted.. how can i solve this problem? but if i didnt insert my memory my phone doesnt restart..


It is obvious that the memory card you inserted into your phone is bad (it has virus) and that's why the phone keeps restarting.

Try inserting another memory card and let's see what happens.

Take care.

Sounds like memory is the problem to me. Try original memory, if it works, make sure you are using the proper type and speed for this motherboard.

The D845GLVA board provide the following memory features:
  • 2.5 V (only) 184-pin DDR SDRAM DIMMs with gold-plated contacts
  • Unbuffered single-sided or double-sided DIMMs
  • Maximum total system memory: 2 GB; minimum total system memory: 64 MB
  • DDR266/200 MHz SDRAM DIMMs only
  • Serial Presence Detect (SPD)
CAUTION:
Do not use ECC DIMMs with this board. Using ECC DIMMs could damage the board.
Integrator's Notes:
  • Registered DIMMs are not supported.
  • Double-sided x16 DIMMs are not supported.
  • If a full-length PCI add-in card is installed in PCI bus connector 1 (the PCI bus connector closest to the processor), remove the add-in card before installing or upgrading memory to avoid interference with the memory retention mechanism.
  • This board has been designed to support DIMMs based on 512 Mbit technology for a maximum onboard capacity of up to 2 GB, but this technology has not been validated (currently validated up to 1.0 GB) on this board.
