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

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.

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.

    It maybe then that your processor is faulty and failing as soon as it gets hot as it wouldn't take long to warm up, as after the cmos chip has checked settings, it's then upto the CPU to run the motherboard.

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

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.

XP refuses to restart after installing printer

It’s not uncommon for software to mess up during installation.
Or even have a bad CD. (Please make sure you're windows XP software is up to date, run windows update service).
Since you are able to get into windows, open control panel, open add/remove programs & uninstall the Lexmark printer software. After uninstall restart the PC. Power on the printer before windows loads. See if windows runs with the printer connected & powered on. Less Its driver software. Windows should see the printer & ask for the software. (If so, it may be corrupted software). Go to Lexmark for driver software & download it.
Try reinstalling using the online driver software for the X3550 printer. If it still stops you're windows, I would suggest replacing the USB cable. If replacing the cable does not help & windows does not load, there could be something wrong with the printer.
If this is a new printer you should contact Lexmark.
Lexmark will suggest all of the above. You'll be three steps ahead of support. Lastly, I have come across an issue from time to time installing printers software into Windows XP systems.
(It matters not the printer model). Windows was missing basic printer files needed to operate any given printer. The fix for those systems was a complete fresh install of windows. Its suggested to never use a copied windows CD. It matters.

Good Luck electrics!
If I can help you further, feel free to post.
There is rarely 1 way to fix every thing.

Motherboard upgrade

The different hardware components on the new motherboard require different drivers that what are already loaded on your installation of Windows. My guess is something requires a driver that the base Windows driver install will not cover and as a result errors out and restarts. I too have tried this trick on several occasions, sometimes it work and sometimes it doesn?t; however, the key is similar hardware. My guess would be IDE controller, video, chipset or perhaps USB 2.0 is causing your problem. What you can do perhaps is boot into Windows safe mode and try to figure out what is causing the problem. In the long run it may save time and aggravation by just reinstalling Windows ?? Let us know how it turns out.
