Do you have the case speaker connected? If so listen for the bios beep codes. You will have to know which bios you have.

Gateway MT6840 unexpectedly shut down and wouldn't


First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

Making a bench machine on the tyan dual core pentium III mother board


Rebooting is tipical of Windows XP when there is an important error. Most of the time this error is coming from the hardware.
There is a way to know the error code that make Windows XP mad, but you have to eliminate the automatic restart option.
With your mouse right click on My Computer, select properties, select advanced and you should see something similar:

deselect Automatically restart.
At this point next time you will have the error instead of rebooting you will see a blue screen with some message at the top and some code at the bottom, please write them down and post them here.

In case you cannot even enter in Windows XP because is keeping rebooting too fast, try to do the above steps in Safe mode.
To enter in Windows in Safe mode you have to press F8 as soon as you boot and before you see the windows logo on you screen, then select safe mode and repeat the steps above.

Last but not least, please send me the exact type of motherboard, processor and memory that you are using.

MY LAPTOP GOES TO THIS BLUE SCREEN THEN SHUTS DOWN WHY DOES IT DO THIS


Remove the Power Cord, Open the Case and remove one of thememory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x onit with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the nextmemory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set itaside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If itboots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and putit into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

I have installed dual os(XP and Ubuntu Linux 10) on same drive It is working but my pc became very slow. Now I want to uninstall any or both os but it is showing error. So suggest me How can I?


Hi, try the following sequence.Insert your XP disk and reboot, during bootup press your ESC button or Del on some PCs, you will be in BIOS, from here you can change you primary boot drive, select CD rom, save changes and reboot. Press return when request to boot from CD appears, wait for the sequence to finish installing, select the section of the drive you wish to change, select delete, confirm and then reformat your hard drive. PC will reboot afterwards and start installing XP. Be aware this will remove everything from your hard drive, so back up first. Hope this helps

Computer boots up then shows windows 98 scrren


you may face either harddisk failure, a driver problem or virus infection:

tools: original win98-cd (or a bootable image

version of it), antivir-software on cd!

- please check whether it is possible to boot from win98-cd, with cd-rom support, not from harddisk.

(such option should be availabe after bios-load is over)

if not:

leave the setup process without fully installing
(press F3 button when asked for repair or install option)

in both cases :

type at the dos-prompt:

c:\win98/win

(command for changing to harddisk, windows-folder, booting windows from harddisk, but without loading all the drivers as usually)

win98 should come up in protected mode or give error messages.

- access cd-drive and execute vir-scan.
- delete and/or repair infected files
- turn down, attempt to reboot from hd
- if still impossible reboot from win98-cd,
run repair of installation and try once again
standard boot

problem solved? if not, take down error messages consult fixya again!

Shuts self off during start up


Sounds like there could be a major problem with the hard drive.

Have you got an XP or Vista cd? NOT a restore cd.

My computer won't shut down it just keeps restarting


The most common shut down problem is that the system will reboot rather than shutting down. In most cases, the reboot is triggered because Windows XP is designed to reboot after a critical failure. To stop windows from rebooting in case of a failure, you need to take the following steps:
Right click on My Computer, Select Properties, Click on advance tab, Click on Settings under Startup and Recovery, Uncheck the option Automatically Restart under System failure, Click Ok twice and try to shutdown the pc. If it shows any error code then let me know

E-machine laptop - cannot get it to open up....receive error message


The easiest ways is this:

1. You have to collect a bootable XP CD ( get it from friends or download from bit-torrent and burn a bootable image to a CD.

2. Now change your boot sequence in bios of your computer, CDROM must be the first one.

3. Then insert the CD and boot from it, start a new installation.

4. During the installation process the installer will find the old Windows folder ( most likely to be C:\Windows) and tell you that the installer found an old installation, if you want to repair that.

5. Select that option, and follow the steps as prompted by the installer. If your hard disk is not totally damaged ( it seems that it is not damaged, otherwise windows would fail to recognize it during device checking), you will get your old installation and data back.

Good Luck

Installing windows XP - Error encountered


Can you reboot and get into windows or is now corrupt?

What do you mean by 'uninstalled XP'??

You cant uninstall it unless you format the drive, in which case the recovery discs are now probably useless as they rely on a folder on the HDD called i386.

Recovery discs normally dont have the OS on them, they rely on the I386 folder to gather info about the computer and then restores it to the state when it was new.

If you can acess the system, reboot and go into the bios and change the boot sequence to CD, then insert the first recovery disc. then save the settings and the computer will reboot and start the recovery process again, this should clear up the error.

If it does not it will be because the i386 folder is missing in which case you can either explore the recovery discs for it or you will have to buy a copy of Windows XP.
