Cant flash bios a1410n


Try simple first. When booting, AND BEFORE the XP logo, press f8 repeatedly until you see the boot options menu. If you miss it, you will see the xp loading logo, if so, restart and try again. From the boot menu, try the "boot with last known good configuration" option. If that doesn't fix it, re-boot, f8, and try the "safe mode" option. If it boots with any of these methods, do a full shut down and re-start again normally.
If that doesn't get it to boot normally, I would do the following. (I would, but you should only try this if you have a good understanding of windows and needed programs installing, ram replacement, hard drive repair/replacement and internal computer wiring)
Now, if your computer worked fine, then suddenly started this loop, I dont think it a bios problem. I expect you might have a hardware problem. Did you change any hardware very recently? Sometimes that stops windows from loading. Or, you could try changing the ram and retry, could be bad ram. But I think it is a hard drive issue. I think you will have to reload windows and/or replace the hard drive.
To safeguard your info, you should replace the main hard drive with another drive, load windows fully on it, then add the original drive back in as a slave/secondary drive, and retreive your personal info and files from it. Your needed programs will have to be re-installed on the newer windows drive. When you get all your files copied over (use copy and paste, not cut and paste), you can format the old drive and use it as storage, or just format and keep for the next time, or sell it. I would also run a "drive fitness program" to test it for bad sectors.
Or, if you dont need anything from your windows, you could format and install from the xp install cd. If it loads and runs, the drive is probably ok (I would still test it for bad sectors), or, if it cant load because of errors, the drive is probably bad. Retry with a new drive.

Windows Xp won't start


The most common reason a computer won't start can be a piece of hardware has failed or is causing a problem but that hardware isn't usually a hard drive, the part of your computer that stores all of your files. To fix such kinds of issue, you can take the following steps.1.create a bootable usb or cd ,there are kinds of software for you to complete this step, you can choose Fix Boot,EasyBootDisk or Windows Boot Genius. I suggest you to useWindows Boot Genius, it is easier and more effective.2.boot your computer from the created disk3.fix the issue after run the softwareBy the way, before any further steps you should make sure the power supply is good. Any hardware issues such as pc power and cable,motherboard corrupted should be troubleshooted.I don't suggest you to try the solution above until you are sure there is nothing to do with the hardware.

Why does my Dell Optiplex GX620 Randomly lag? the whole system will lag like the mouse and sound and how can i fix it?


Computers do slow down with age, not becuase the hardware is worn out but becuase the OS gets slow. Not sure why.

You could try a clean install of your operating system, that always works. If you still have a problem then you know its your hardware.

Before you proceed with that cehck to see you have all the right drivers for everything, and run a virus check using kapersky virus removal tool.

Wont boot up and restarts after first 2 screens is it hardware or software? and what would i have to do to get it running again?


Hardware issue conflicting with windows
Usually it is the Video breakdown and windows is trying to compensate.
When bootin,instantly do an F8, If windows catches Safe mode and goes to safemode, check your device manager, properties, see if viideo is ok or an Red mark on a product and reload drivers and that should fix your problem .

System32 dll file is missing or corrup


There is a good possibility that you are having a hardware failure of the Hard Disk Drive, causing the windows error.

Either in the BIOS or in the F12 boot menu should be an option to run diagnostics, see if the hard drive fails. If it does, then you need to replace the drive.

If not, you will likely need an XP Installation CD so you can boot to Recovery Console and run the command CHKDSK /P to try and recover the operating system

Code 41
Windows successfully loaded the device driver for this hardware but cannot find the hardware device. (Code 41)
Recommended resolution

A driver was loaded but Windows cannot find the device. This error occurs when Windows does not detect a non-Plug and Play device.

If the device was removed, uninstall the driver, install the device, and then click Scan for hardware changes to reinstall the driver. If the hardware was not removed, obtain a new or updated driver for the device.

If the device is a non-Plug and Play device, a newer version of the driver might be needed. To install non-Plug and Play devices, use the Add Hardware wizard. Click Performance and Maintenance on Control Panel, click System, and on the Hardware tab, click Add Hardware Wizard.

On the General Properties tab of the device, click Troubleshoot to start the Troubleshooting Wizard.
