Question about Computers & Internet
Hi. I am having problems with my computer booting up completely. What happens is when I turn it on..power supply and fan turns on...it will go through the normal cycle of boot up...floppy drive lights up and dvd drive light lights up...then I hear this "clicking" sound repeatedly then the computer shuts off by itself. I tried unhooking the components separately and thought it might have been the DVD writer. Bought a new one. Restarted the system and then it shuts itself down completely again. Also tried swapping a different hard drive but the system still shuts down. What else could it be?
For xp there was a update called service pack 3 witch caused alot of compaq to just boot the shut off this seems to be ur problem although i am not sure of ur pc's brand hope this helps
