Could be a couple of things, but at a guess, there's a problem with XP. Switch on and press the F8 key several times while its booting.

This should give you several boot options, choose "boot in safe mode".
Once active click on Start - All Programmes - Accessories - System tools - System recover. It will offer you a choice of dates to recover your system from, choose a date prior to your problems, then leave it to get on with it.

If that doesn't work. It could be a component failure. Does it let out a series of beeps as it closes down. If so check the beep code given by your PC against the beep code list on this site:-

It should point you in the right direction.

Finally, if you feel confident, take the case off and give it a clean out with a dry paint brush and hoover. Take care not to disturb any components or cables.

The most likely situation is a file error in the windows boot up process. Try booting the computer in safe mode (press the f8 key after the post screen, and selection menu will come up, sellect safe mode). If it does not boot this way, you could try a boot repair (since you did not list tthe brand model of computer, it is hard to direct you on this course). Most likely you will have to do a full restore to clear the error. This of course will remove all software, data that was not installed on the computer out of the box.

SOURCE: Dell 2350 Won't boot up without cd

Check the jumper on the back of your drive. Chances are that the jumper is either on "slave" or "cable select". Change the jumper to master, and try rebooting.

SOURCE: desktop cpu shuts down shortly after startup

I if you haven't added any new hardware or software since this problem started check the following:
I would be thinking a heat problem. Check on the BIOS log looking for Thermal Events...check to see if the fan on your processor/sync. is tight and spinning. Check to see all fans are spinning and clean out dust. If you are satisfied that that is not the problem, look to your video card. Do a reinstall or update on the Vid drivers.

It should be one of these two things...if not memory would be my next concern.

Remove the power cord, remove the case and look inside the computer at the capacitors. See if any of them are busted or leaking corrosion. The capacitors look like little battery towers but they are not as tall as AA or AAA batteries.

According to the question above you are looking to reinstall Windows XP. You would need to gain a copy of Windows XP from a local electronics store. If you have a repair CD for the Dell 2350 then you would be able to insert this, then restart your computer. Once your PC restarts it will provide you options to restore your PC.

Trying to set up a network printer with DELL TRUEMIBILE 2350...please help


using windows xp on all the computers, when you connect to the printer windows should automatically install drivers.

1. Goto My Computer, Click My Network Places (Explorer Bar).
2. Click View Workgroup Computers (Explorer Bar)
3. Find the computer that has the printer physically connected to it, open it
4. Find the printer and right click it!
5 Select Connect... and wait for the drivers to install.

this should install the print drivers and install the printer on your computer. the printer should now be available in print dialogs i.e. word etc etc and from the Control Panel > Printers window.
