Go to windows start menu and click on RUN. type in "msconfig'' without quotation marks and click enter. the computer will load the system configuration utility, on the general tab, select normal startup option, then click on the BOOT.INI tab the click on CHECK ALL BOOT PATHS,a dialog box will appear to tell you whether the windows boot directory is OK or not. if it displays that they are Okay, then there may be that a virus has affected those files. you ca also type in "sigverif" without quotation marks, on RUN to launch the windows file verification, click on start to check important windows files for their correct version. try restarting the computer. if your system still can boot, open the computer case to make sure that the hard drive, and RAM are connected correctly. if you still having problems, notify me.

Asus p5n-e sli will no longer stay on for more then a few seconds


You go to AVIRA dot com and download the boot tool, or go to BITDEFENDER and run an online scan, you don't put in a new HDD just because you had a virus, it sounds like you had a problem and thought it was a virus.

Read you manual, plug in the Sata drive into Sata 1.

Do you mean BIOS post, if you don't even see the BIOS post, check your monitor with another PC.

There is only one correct power switch pin, a , + and - pin, how can you switch, there is no such thing as switching.

Hi, my dell optiplex gx 150 was infected by multiple viruses so i decided to re-install xp booting from cd. after copying all the files from the cd and the pc restarts, its failing to continue installation...


1.You have a corrupted boot sector on your hard drive.
2.you will need to format the drive and then re-install the Operating System.
3. If you are not able to do this then a new hard drive is needed.
4. install a anti virus program after installing the operating system

Pc wont boot up, the led lights 1and 2 on D-bracket 2 blink green but 3 and 4 for are red. the monitor wont turn on either


try replacing all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA and the ones that attach from your motherboard to hard drive
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they are probably old and faulty because a computer has to have an end to the circuit any fulty leads will lead to no boot up
good luck

I removed memory while computer was on, now it wont power on and boot a solid amber light stays on. how can i get my computer to work


While PC was on? You might have damaged the whole motherboard.

Try removing all non-essential devices and booting it to minimal. Try another stick of RAM. IF still nothing, the motherboard will need replacing,.

No beep and computer suddenly stop working.


1. May be u have a small PWR supply. Late MB need a bunch of power 350W or more.
Or maybe some interface card/disk use to much power/short circuit.
2. If your computer poweroff just after u write userid and PW may be you got countdow virus or similar.
Try to put in the cd a LIVE distro like UBUNTU, boot from it and wait.
If your computer poweroff u got an HW problem (see #1) if it stay on u got the virus.
if you want to save data you have in the computer just boot a LIVE distro and copy them to an external USB disk.Run an antivirus on external disk: may be you have copied the virus too.
if you are smart enought you can run a stand alone specific antivirus, if not
call for service.

Motherboard won't boot up


Hey there,

This causes if you havnt connected the power cable coming from th power button to proper jack or pin.

Check out the pin in which ur power button cable is inserted.

Does your system boot when u press the restart or shut down icon from ur windows (OS). If it is not letting ur system to boot then you've been attacked with the Worm viruses. These viruses dont let ur system to boot because they keep their process running untill ur power is off.

Gimme ur acknowladge by rating me.

Thanx.
