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.

Sounds like you need a new cooling fan.You may be able to save yours with some electrical contact cleaner spray.
Remove fan and spray.
The cpu will heat up quick and shut down everything to protect itself.Im sure once you get a new fan you will be up and running again.
You may consider reapplying new conductive paste to the processor while you have the case open.

You really do need to change the motherboard.

What I would advise you to do is to upgrade your


Change it to 1GIG Ram instead, then after installing

it, try defragment your PC (Very Important).

And Also get a very good Antivirus, I always prefer

Avast, which you can easily download from their

website, and it is also very light, as compared to

McAfee, Norton, e.t.c.

All these things are going to take you a lot of time to

finish but I'll tell you the truth...they are worth it.

After all these, you can now optionally improve the

performance of your system by going to this place :

Right-Click on my computer, Properties, then Click

on Advanced, then under the performance tab, click

on settings, and select 'adjust for best performance'.

This will change the appearance of your system and

significantly increase your system speed.

Hope this gives you a great solution.

Compaq EVO N1020V Not reporting RAM correctly

This sounds as thought he RAM is faulty.

You need to have installed 2 x 512 MB DDR 266 SoDIMMs and not 1 x SoDIMM.

If you have placed 1 x 1Gb SoDIMM in ther EVO this would account for you only seeing 480Mb of RAM.

I perfomed some cleaning to my dell pc, on reassembling, the pc

Hello orwason,

This has haapened to me to, very frustrating. The problem is something loose inside. When you did the cleaning something came unseated, a pci card or an ide connector. Go through and make sure all connectors are snug in their respective slots. Also, make sure you unplug the power cord before touching the inside. Let me know how it turns out for you.

I cant identify the prolem

It looks like you may have a boot sector virus. A boot sector virus is one that infects the first sector, i.e. the boot sector, of a floppy disk or hard drive. Boot sector viruses can also infect the MBR. All disks and hard drives are divided into small sectors. The first sector is called the boot sector and contains the Master Boot Record (MBR). The MBR contains the information concerning the location of partitions on the drive and reading of the bootable operating system partition.

When disinfecting a boot sector virus, the system should always be booted from a known clean system disk. On a DOS-based PC, a bootable system disk can be created on a clean system running the exact same version of DOS as the infected PC. From a DOS prompt, type:
    SYS C:\ A:\
and press enter. This will copy the system files from the local hard drive (C:\) to the floppy drive (A:\).
If the disk has not been formatted, the use of FORMAT /S will format the disk and transfer the necessary system files. On Windows 3.1x systems, the disk should be created as described above for DOS-based PC's. On Windows 95/98/NT systems, click Start | Settings | Control Panel | Add/Remove Programs and choose the Startup Disk tab. Then click on "Create Disk". Windows 2000 users should insert the Windows 2000 CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, click Start | Run and type the name of the drive followed by bootdisk\makeboot a: and then click OK. For example:
    d:\bootdisk\makeboot a:
Follow the screen prompts to finish creating the bootable system disk. In all cases, after the creation of the bootable system disk, the disk should be write protected to avoid infection.

Once the OS loads, run your anti-virus software and it should clean the virus.

Should this not help, I'm afraid the only other alternative would be to reformat the HDD and reinstall XP again from a bootable disc.

Hope that helps..
