System can't boot after performing a PC clean up by dissembling

When this problem occured, I dissebled and assemled my PC again and again thinking the problem could be as a result of loose connection somewhere but Lo! No success.
Something I noted was that the system could start like loading, stops on the way, and to a a long beeps- first like it's counting 1,2,3... then continous for something like a minute or so.
Worse to me than all is a message displayed on the screen "Alert! Previous attempts of booting this system have failed at checkpoints i.e [kernel], [xint]," and now [Vmgr] please contact the manufacturer for assistance."
Also, I have tried replacing the RAM module with other operational once but, these couldn't be detected even. please expert help- I'm going through hell right now.

Beeps on start up is indication of missing hard drive. memories, or reversed IDE cable.
unplug all add-ons, leave just the memories and the monitor. turn on the machine. if all is good, then insert each items one at a time.
make sure the memories are the type that fits the machine (not physical but electrically).
I suspect your hard drive may be the problem.
go to BIOS and make sure all the items a checked and correct. specially the drive0 and drive1.
I assume that the hard drive is SATA. make sure the connection is 0 to 0 and 1 to1 in the BIOS.
check the hard drive in the BIOS, make sure it can detect the hard drive. if so, then the problem is in the hard drive. if you have another hard drive, try that one.

How to stop Windows 10 from automatically restarting after idle for around 5-15 minutes.

The kernel power event ID 41 error occurs when the computer is shut down, or it restarts unexpectedly. When a computer that is running Windows starts, a check is performed to determine whether the computer was shut down cleanly. If the computer was not shut down cleanly, a Kernel Power Event 41 message is generated.
Before we proceed with the troubleshooting steps, please answer the questions given below.
a)Do you remember making any changes prior to this issue?
b)Did you check if all the drivers are up to date?
Let us follow the methods given below.
Method 1: Run System maintenance troubleshooter.
Follow these steps:
a) Press Windows key + W on the keyboard
b) Type Troubleshooter then click on Settings under the Search field
c) In Settings click on Find and Fix Problems
d) Click on System and security
e) Click System maintenance follow the prompts from there.
Method 2: Try booting the computer in safe mode and perform a clean boot.
Step 1: Perform Safe Mode
Click the link and follow the steps "Windows Startup Settings (including safe mode)"
Check if you face the same issue in safe mode. If the issue doesn't persists in safe mode, the place the computer in clean boot and check.
Step 2: Perform Clean Boot.
To help troubleshoot error messages and other issues, you can start Windows 8 by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs. This kind of startup is known as a "clean boot." A clean boot helps eliminate software conflicts.
Important: Reset the computer to start as usual.
Note: After you have finished troubleshooting, follow these steps to boot to normal startup.
a) Press the 'Windows + R' key on the keyboard.
b) In the 'Run' windows type 'MSCONFIG' and click 'Ok'.
c) On the 'General' tab, click the 'Normal Startup' option, and then click 'OK'.
d) When you are prompted to restart the computer, click 'Restart'.
If the issue persists, I would suggest you to perform a system restore and check if it helps.
Method 3: Perform a system restore.
Refer to the link given below and follow the instructions for system restore.
How to restore, refresh, or reset your PC
Also refer to the article given below.
Windows Kernel event ID 41 error "The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first" in Windows 8, Windows Server 2012, Windows 7, or Windows Server 2008 R2

Pc keeps rebooting windows but will not start up

It sounds like one of the core operating system files is either missing or corrupted. This symptom could also be caused by an external storage device not properly initializing on boot. Disconnect any external storage devices and reboot your machine again. If that does not work, reboot your machine and start tapping F8. You should eventually see a Boot Manager screen (black and white) that gives you the option to restore your computer to a previous state. If you do not have this option, go ahead and boot into Safe Mode. Once in Safe Mode, go to Start->Run and type "restore" and hit enter. Use the System Restore utility to choose a date earlier than when the problem occurred. Once your system is restored, the issue should clear up. If not, it's possible you may need to locate your Windows DVD and perform a system repair.

How to solve physical memory dump

Hi Good day!!!
Check your Memory (RAM) turn off your laptop and then remove your Memory then clean it same use a brush for cleaning.
I am sure you freak out when you computer screen suddenly turns blue and you see the error message that says "beginning of physical memory dump".
What do you do? Most people would just reboot the computer and pretend nothing happens. Some people want to know what happened and what they should do to fix it. It can be very daunting and stressful when you get the blue screen of death while doing important work. You would not have time to save it because it happens suddenly without any warnings. You must do the work all over again after rebooting.
What actually cause the physical memory dump?
  • DLL error
  • RAM Hardware Problems
  • Memory allocation error
  • COM error
  • HIVE crash
What should you do when it happens?
If it occurs because of your memory problem, then you should consider buying a new computer.
The ignorant way is doing a reboot and hoping that it does not happen again. The hard way is to address what caused the error and fix it manually. If it occurs because of your chaotic registry, you could find and fix it, which is very dangerous because one simple mistake can lead to a total error in your system. Reinstall your operation system might be a wiser decision to make.
The easy way is to pay a computer technician hundred of dollars to fix it for you. But in fact you could do what the technician would do to fix your computer; the wise way is to be a computer technician yourself. Did I said that you could actually do what a computer technician would do to fix your computer? Yes, it is very simple really. A technician uses a simple software to fix your registry.
If you could be the technician yourself and pay less to get the software that you can use forever, why should you pay a technician hundreds of dollars to fix it only one time for you?
You will want to do regular maintenance to keep your PC error-free so that this problem never re-occurs again.

Thank you for using FixYa

My hp laptop wont change desktop background.


The Indexing related issue occurs if one of the device driver is corrupt or not updated. Did the issue occur right after you installed the system, or it started to occur recently? If it occurred originally, the hard disk may not support Win SAT. You may need to contact the manufacturer of the hard disk to confirm this situation.

If it started to occur recently, Kingv84, please let us know if you have installed any disc maintenance related programs. If so, please remove it and check the result. If the issue still occurs, I suggest that you boot in Clean Boot Mode.

Clean boot
Let’s disable all startup items and third party services when booting. This method will help us determine if this issue is caused by a loading program or service. Please perform the following steps:

1. Click the Start Button type "msconfig" (without quotation marks) in the Start Search box, and then press Enter.

Note: If prompted, please click Continue on the User Account Control (UAC) window.

2. Click the "Services" tab, check the "Hide All Microsoft Services" box and click "Disable All" (if it is not gray).
3. Click the "Startup" tab, click "Disable All" and click "OK".

Then, restart the computer. When the "System Configuration Utility" window appears, please check the "Don't show this message or launch the System Configuration Utility when Windows starts" box and click OK.

Please test this issue in the Clean Boot environment, if the issue disappears in the Clean Boot environment, we can use a 50/50 approach to quickly narrow down which entry is causing the issue.

For more information about this step, please refer to the following KB article:

How to troubleshoot a problem by performing a clean boot in Windows Vista

If the issue still occurs in Clean Boot Mode, please let us know if the computer is from computer manufacturer.
