Test your PSU or replace it

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your motherboard to your hard drive make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty

hope this helps

Here's something to try, it's actually the drum reset and if it's the drum that needs replacing then this will get you going again. Just remember that if you reset this that eventually the drum will start having quality issues because you will be using it past its end of life cycle getting more use out of it then normal and it won't hurt the machine either... hope this helps and if so, please mark Fixya

1) Turn off the power using the switch on the back of the printer. Open the front door of the printer.

2) Hold Continue button down, power on the printer, and continue to holding Continue down until the LEDs begin to flash. When the LEDs start to flash, release Continue button. The LEDs will continue flashing until only Error LED will be lit.

3) Close the front door. Continue, Ready/Data, Toner Low and Load Paper LEDs should be lit.

4) Wait till the printer completes the POST process. POST is complete when fan noise and rollers stop. After POST wait for 5 seconds

5) Press Cancel button 4 times slowly until the Toner Low LED is lit. This is the procedure resetting the counter.

6) Press and hold Continue until all LEDs begin to cycle in sequence, then release Continue. Now only the Toner Low LED will be lit.

7) Cycle the power of the printer (turn it off and then back on).

no computer is trash when you are dealing with a software issue.

boot up and tap on the f8 key... when you get to that screen... choose safe mode... if it successfully boots.... go to start menu... and restart again... it should boot... if it wants to do the update let it.... if still nothing.... f8 again and choose last known good configuration

Monitor image flashes off and on

Sounds like you've done all the trouble shooting. If you just need that extra nudge, I would agree... it sounds like you'll be needing to shop for a new monitor.

Scanner comes on automatically at computer startup

I would suspect that you have something else attached to your computer that is causing the scanner to react.

Disconnect the USB cable from the scanner and restart the computer. After the computer has fully restarted, connect the USB cable to the scanner. The scanner may initialize at this point. If after 30 seconds the scanner continues to cycle as you described, the that is an indication that there is something that is actively pinging the USB ports causing the scanner to react. If the scanner doesn't continue cycling, then reboot the computer and see if it does it again upon bootup.

Assuming that the scanner continues recycling:
Disconnect all USB devices (except the scanner) from the computer and then restart. If the problem goes away, then one of those devices is the culprit. Connect them one at a time, rebooting each time, to determine which devices is causing the problem. Once you determine the cause, then you'll know where to go for help.

Hope this helps.
