There are two options of solving the problem according to my own diagonosis.
1. Remove the memory chip and replace it with a another one.
2. If it doesn't work then it should be a power supply problem and if its a l;aptop then its Battery failure.

If you can get this far, give yourself a clue as to what is the cause, right click my computer>properties>advanced>startup and recovery>settings and untick 'automatically re-start'. This should then stop and show a 'blue screen of death' and come up with a error code. The other thing to try would be to put the JBAT jumper across pins 2-3 and then back to 1-2, this should then make you set up the bios again just incase there is a checksum error causing it. Also your CMOS battery may be flat (check the time), try another and re boot.

Is the heatsink fan working? (when overheating, you get such issues) Try removing one memory module and boot up. If problem persists, try swapping them.

SOURCE: My mouse keeps freezing

Blue screen is not a good sign at all. It can man alot of things, the driver is not right, you have a virus on your computer, or someone is in your computer. I would go and get and good firewall program or use xp or vista firewall. If that doesn't work then you do have virus. I would do a complete refresh on the system longest you have the recovery disk.

SOURCE: Dell optiplex GX280 decommissioned and hard drive

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive
Test the leads that attach to your ((hard drive from the motherboard)) or replace all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA and the ones that attach from your ((motherboard to hard drive))
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they are probably old and faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

hope this helps

DELL Inspiron disk failure how to recover OS in new hard disk?


Unfortunately you will need the restore disk to correct this problem. Even if you copy the old disk to the new, chances are you will copy the corrupt files and have TWO bad copies of xp. You can order the restore disk from Dell on average about $30.

Good Luck

Find windows xp professional sp2 product key

If you bought it directly from Dell or an authorized reseller, there should be a Certificate of Authenticity sticker on the bottom, assuming you didn't remove it.

If you did, unfortunately there is nothing anyone will be able to do for you, Dell included(I've worked Dell CS).

If you are able to load into windows, you may be able to recover your product key through windows, google is your friend.

Computer will not boot up.

Boot up your Windows XP on your drive.
Since you have been on that process I assume that you already know those things prior to this solution. I'll just continue the subject after it load all the drivers.

1) After you get the "MENU" screen that has a selection of
  • Install XP press "Enter"
  • Press "R" to repair
  • Press "F3" to quit
Select to "Install XP"
2)After you will get a End User License Agreement (EULA), then Press "F8" to accept
3) Then another menu that was stated above. Then this is the time you select the REPAIR option

If you find this Solution helpful please Rank me.

Thank you.

Hello! :)
The first thing I would have you do is to shutdown the computer (Hold the power button until the system turns off) and retry the format. Are you using a Microsoft XP disc or a recovery disc? If your not sure just post with all of the text that appears on the CD.

Hard drive driver problem


It is possible that your hard drive is a SATA and therefore not readily readable by 98, XP but surprised not even by Vista. In any case, since you would still prefer to run XP (due to other software compatibility issues), pls press F6 when prompted by the XP installer. Additionally, you would need to have ready in a floppy the appropriate SATA drivers for your motherboard. They maybe downloaded from the motherboard manufacturer's website or possibly in the installer/driver CD that came with the PC.

Other than the above, it is also possible that you may have some issues with the availability of XP drivers for the other devices for that computer specially if it is branded.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
