Question about Systemax (988970) PC Desktop

1 Answer

Systemax Crash! The same seems to have happened to me. After three years of operation, the machine now boots but then soon turns off. It seems to think it must write to CD, fails and dies. It will not boot from the recovery disk. Not sure how to re-install WinXP and to reset whatever processses it thinks it must do. newmedia@aol.com

This sounds more like a hardware problem to me. I would suspect the power supply first.

I have a Windows Server 2003 system on a old Dell desktop. I want to move it (hard drives) to a Systemax Venture.


You need an IDE controller board to boot from. The SATA drives have not system on it only data, so it cannot boot from these drives.

Overclocking in bios made desktop crash.


clear the bios - locate the little 3-pin jumper labeled with "CLR" or simmilar next to the bios chip/battery. short circuit the free pin with the one next to it (yiou will need to use the jumper that is on there). once you have kept it on for 10 seconds - put it back in to original position and configure your bios (time settings, boot device,...)

if you can't find the jumper or you think it's too complicated - unplug your pc from power and remove the bios battery. after 30 minutes install the battery as it was and configure your bios (time settings, boot device,...)

Systemax Ascent HA3200 RTS won't boot - fans come on - no display


The motherboard seems OK as it is displaying signs of life. The Monitor should display something before booting up, which it is not.Please do the following. 1. Remove the RAM and reinsert the DIMMs into their sockets and boot up. 2. Disconnect the HDD data cable from the HDD and the motherboard and reconnect. Boot up. 3. Disconnect the monitor and reconnect. Boot up. At boot up press F2 and set the PC to default settings. Boot up. Later when you want to apply your settings, keep noting down what you did when. Just in case.

i think your operating system is crashed or corrupted. try to boot in safe mode. for boot in safe mode press f8 at the time of startup and select safe mode. if your system boots in safe mode. If its a crash of operating system then run chkdsk for c drive and select two options with tick marks. it asks to scan at next time startup. select yes and restart your system. after scan it will fixed.

Pc does not go beyond Lsass.exe application error


Try getting into safe mode, by taping the f7 or f8 key before it boots. Once in safe mode we can do a restore to the last restore point, and go from there. If you can't get into safe mode, let me know and we will go into the bios, set the machine to boot from the dvd drive and use your xp disk to boot her up, this method id too much to post here, let me know and we will take it up only if needed. Also try this, turn off any user accounts that the computer has installed other than your administrator account, and let me know what happens

No Audio


Hello,

I have a friend with a systemax, same thing happened to him.

Go into the control panel, select sounds and audio devices, go over three tabs to the audio tab, make sure the sound default device is the onboard audio card. Should be all set.

Let me know how it works out.

New Computer Wont Boot!


when you say "the fan makes a noise like its getting ready to spin", which fan...power supply's or cpu? if you answer power supply, then the POWER OK signal is not returning to power supply and it then quickly shuts down to prevent further damage. double check a firm connection to mother board. If you answer CPU, then it becomes far more complicated. Try re-seating the memory chips.
