If there are no beeps, try removing one of your memory sticks to see if it will boot, no beeps means no memory check.

    are you able to get into the bios(press F2 or DEL on boot up) and in the standard bios settings at the bottom of the list should be 'halt on all errors', you need to dissable this, then save settings.

    Allow a re-boot and it should carry on though the p.o.s.t and then tell you the problem.

    If it says cmos checksum error it may be that your cmos battery is in need of replacing, a sure sign of this is your system time being wrong.

    But the main problem seems to be a memory fault as there has to be beeps.

My Dell Inspiron 6400 (Windows XP Home) won't reboot. It's giving me a "Loading PBR for descriptor 1 ... done" line on a black screen. What can I do to fix it. Can I salvage my content / files


Before you use the Recovery CD you need to backup your data because to restoring your laptop will wipe your data off the hard disk.
To backup your data when you cannot boot up your laptop, remove the hard drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter. Connect this hard drive/USB adapter into the USB port of a working computer. The computer will see it as an external storage device, you can then open the folders and backup your data.
You can then fit the hard drive back into the Dell laptop and boot up with the Dell recovery CD to reinstall Windows etc.

Just switch on the computer and carefully listen the alarm one long continuous beep or short beep or one long followed by one short. This information is necessary for providing you the solution.

Problem loading Windows XP


You need to start windows in the safe mode, press F8 at boot up.
Remove al the drivers that you've installed on you previous computer system, usualy this is is a conflict between wrong drivers and your hardware.
If you can't remove the old drivers, reinstall Windows XP, do a clean install
by booting your computer up with the Windows xp cdrom, from the Windows XP cdrom you're also able to repartionate your hard drive.
First remove the old partition(s) en make a new one, the setup does then format your harddrive, after that you're ready to install windows xp on the new partition.

Bought HP Pavilion dv2910tx,not able to install Windows XP. Help


If the install cannot detect the hard disk then the hard disk is faulty and needs replacing or the disk controller is faulty.
You can check if the hard disk is faulty by :-
Go into the BIOS and check if there a hard disk diagnostic.
If not then remove the hard drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and plug it into a working computer's USB port.
If this computer see it as an external hard drive and you can view the contents of the drive then it is OK and the fault is the disk controller on the laptop.
To setup XP.
You insert the Windows CD and boot up the laptop with the CD.
You have done this correctly to get the hard disk error message.

I purchase a FreeAgent Go 160gb,getting started it does not do anything. the diolog window does not come up,unit just beeps...


Hi,
If this is an External USB Hard-Drive, your problem is insufficient power provided by the USB Port.
1:- Try Another USB Port If You Have One.
2:- If you have a 2 into 1 USB Cable, connect 2 into 2 individual USB Ports ( On Computer ) And 1 into Hard-drive Unit.
If none of this works, your drive is faulty.
