Just doesn't work

When i go to turn on my machine it sometimes makes it as far as loading the xp screen but other times just refuses to aknowledge its even on, i have no idea what is causing this it will also sometimes attempt to start in safe mode then merely say 'no signal' and not respond to anything i have once seen an error message although it wasn't on screen for long enough before the screen went black and said no signal then the fan seems to run at a very high rate for no reason as it is not hot at all, i have changed screens and vga leads with no success, i have also put my hard drive into an identical pc which worked thus ruling that out as a basis for a fault, however i am no closer to resolving the problem, please help, thanks

Re: just doesn't work

I have the same computer as you and the same thing happened to me. On my computer it turned out that my motherboard crashed. you may need to buy a new one. If not then it might just be really dusty. If you have given it a good clean you should take it into a computer store to get it fixed. I know its abit late but meh.

Re: just doesn't work

You say you put the hard drive in another pc and it worked. Did you put it in a slave, because windows XP will not boot on a different pc because of hardware changes and the need for different mobo drivers etc. If it did boot you were lucky as it checks processor serial numbers amongst other things. If it was a slave, it may work, but as a Windows C drive it won't work because it has probably lost the boot ini file or has a damaged HDD sector. or corrupted. You will have to boot up with your windows cd and press enter then 'R' for repair when asked to install or repair.

My 531S hangs at the dell splash screen with one short beep before loading windows vista

I would start the computer in safe mode. To do this, keep tapping on the F8 key as you start the computer. Do this as soon as you see anything on the screen. If you get the windows splash screen, you've waited too long. Once you get the white menu on a black screen, choose safe mode and let it start. The next time you do a restart, it should work. If it doesn't, then in safe mode do a system restore back to the time it worked.

Black screen on monitor

do you have your original windows software disk?
you can go to safe mode by pressing f8 during the boot sequence.. tap f8 a few times from the second the computer starts to boot.
It is possible you have a virus or something that damaged the master boot record.

Here is a tutorial on recovering the MBR:
To access this, I booted the system from a Windows XP CD, waited for files to be loaded into memory, then selected R for recovery console, selected my Windows XP installation and entered the administrator password.
Once inside the Windows XP recovery console, I tried the fixboot command. This didn’t seem to make any difference on reboot, so I tried again with fixmbr. After another reboot, Windows XP was up and running (some Internet sites suggest fdisk /mbr but that’s not a recovery console command under Windows XP).

Yes your asking too much of it,

An old system cannot keep up with all the memory intensive programmes and the processor will not cycle the information fast enough for you

add more ram, bigger hard disk drive too will help

Desktop will not load up

The computer should be fine, make sure there is no dust covering the fan or inside the computer. If not you can use the recovery disc that came with the computer, or a Windows XP cd to fix your installation, if that is the problem.
