Question about EliteGroup PT800CE-A Motherboard

Unanounced system shut down

Hello. My home built PT800CE-A computer with XP Home runs like a top. There are periods when the computer simply restarts or goes to blue screen and halts. The warning on the blue screen says something like: "Hardware failure. The computer has been stopped. Call your hardware vendor". I reinstalled all connected hardware, reset the BIOS, reinstalled the memory modules. The shut down and blue screens continue. My case has four fans and the monitor is never over heated, nor do I "overclock". Help please.

The next step that I would recommend is to use the Admin Tools in the Control Panel and select Event Viewer. Check out each of the three logs and see which one has an event with the red X at the time of the shutdown. High light it, and you should be able to see what program, if any, caused the problem. That should give you more information that may be more specific and help you track down the actual culprit.

Hello Haracio_ic,

This type of pc error usually happens due to varied reasons.The anti-malware software your using might have deleted critical system files infected by the virus/malware/trojan inside your pc. Using of incompatible software that requires higher configuration other than the configuration you currently have.

I would suggest you to try repairing / recovering your system from your system recovery disk. If you are using Windows XP , boot up with your Original Windows XP CD and repair it.

Feel free to reply if you have any doubts.

The blue screen is referred to in the industry as BSOD( blue screen of death ) this is a stop screen that is built into Windows to halt on errors whether its a hardware malfunction or incompatibility or software conflicts. Your Dazzle could be faulty or the software is causing the halt screen. This is a major problem with Vista. I have changed most of my computers from Vista back to XP because my Dazzle and new video cam won't run on Vista but runs excellent on the same machine once switched over to XP. Good luck and fell free to Google BSOD for more info.

Dell Studio17 simply will not start up properly.


If you have a dell diagnostics utility CD, then boot it from CD and scan for hardware errors. If it detect anything, ask dell to replace it.

Startup problems


Hi,
this is telling you that a Scan/checkdisk program is running.
to get rid of this, run scandisk within windows, also go to Start/all programs/startup and remove from the startup if applicable.
to bypass on boot-up, simply press enter beefore the program Starts to run.

Windows XP Pro installed but computer boots to Home Edition


It sure is possible.
I would take it back to them and demand that WINXP Pro is put back in there and it boot correctly
They saved about 50 bucks putting in WINXP Home.

Sounds like a bunch of rookies trying to pull a fast one.
