Question about Computers & Internet

2 Answers

My computer does not boot up or go to bios. It turns on then turns off right away, just to turn back on and just sits there. What iscausing this problem? I have assumptions that it might be thepowersupply which is 240 watts but it was working before though so I'm not really sure whats the problem? I have read other solutions and itseems it might be the motherboard but I'm not sure yet. Problem: When computer is turned on,it turns off in a second, then turns back on. The motherboard does notbeep or start up; however, it does remain on and the screen just remains black, nothing else.

I have a dell dimension 3000 desktop. I removed a cd rom drive and replaced it with a audigy sound blaster front panel drive. when I boot my PC it says primary drive not found, press F1 to continue, Press...


Your computer is configured to recognize specific devices in your computer. If you removed the CDROM drive, you need to tell your computer that it's gone, and that you're aware of it. That message is kind of like a "Hey, there's something missing from your computer... did you know about this?"

You should boot your computer up and get into the BIOS. When your computer turns on, you'll see a message in the corner that says something like "Press F2 for BIOS" or something like that. Get into the BIOS menu using this option. When you get into the BIOS, you'll need to find the sub-menu called "IDE Devices" or something referring to IDE drives. You should see two IDE channels, with two possible devices per channel. You should see the entry where your CDROM drive used to be - change this option to "Disabled" and then save your settings and reboot the computer. The message should go away. Good luck!

Dell poweredge 4300 Bootup problem after replacing cmos battery


Look for a jumper on the motherboard where it would allow you to clear the cmos. basically you would move the position of the jumper and turn on the computer and let it clear itself.

Then after it clears turn off the machine, put the jumper back into its original position and then turn the computer on and see if the message goes away.

Also go into the BIOS and put in the correct time, date, year, etc.

Hi turn off an unplug the PC open the right side cover of the computer, remove the memory card and clean the contact cotton w/alcohol and wipe it dry and re install it back. This might solve the problem.

My computer won't boot up right away


I would guess that maybe your power supply may be getting weak. If you had another to swap it out with just to see , that would be great as a confirmation.

Computer will turn on but wont boot


OK, have you tried checking the connections on your hard drive, afterwards try rebooting. If it still wont boot i suggest you back up data and boot the restore CD that came with your PC. If it still doesn't work , check your BIOS, most BIOS programs have a hard drive auto detection function so if it doesn't show, chances are the problem would be a defective hard drive.

Hope this helps:)
