Buy some arctic silver from radio shack ($10). Remove the heat sink from the CPU. Apply a dime sized drop and spread it with a credit card or saving card. Attach heat sink.

SOURCE: pc sht down stating thermal error. suppose processr fan not working. can this be the cause of the eror?

Most of the time you'll never hear the CPU fan. If you don't hear the normal fan sounds coming from your computer, it is most likely the power supply cooling fan. Hold you hand at the back of the computer where the power chord plugs in, while the computer is running, and test if you feel air blowing on your hand. If you don't, then replace your power supply. Make sure, when checking for a new PS that you get the correct pin count. Best to order from Dell since proprietary systems usually use proprietary parts and a generic PS won't fit in the opening at the back of the computer (alignment of the plug and the fan with the opening, etc.)

I have a black screen that says safe mode, safe mode with networkin , safe mode with command prompt and laast known good configuration but when i go to safe mode my computer just reboot all over again


This recycling/rebooting into this screen is normally caused an error (hardware or software).
You MUST turn off - Automatic Restart to see the error message.
Power down your laptop.
Press the power button to turn-on laptop.
Start pressing the F8 key immediately AFTER the DELL logo screen and BEFORE the windows screen.
You SHOULD be brought to the same screen as you described above but with an additional option: TURN-OFF automatic restart. Select this option and press ENTER.
Let laptop cycle and you should see blue background screen with white letters giving you information.

Please provide the ERROR message on screen BEFORE we can advise you any further.

Black screen with curser


It is what is called the "Black Screen of Death (BlSod)/(KSOD)" if you are using Vista or the later Windows 7. There are many causes for the BiSod/KSOD... some may say it is due to Micro**** updates and patches or as what Micro**** claims that is is due to malware infection, most likely something from the Daonol family of Trojans.

Google for it or I'll share you this site to give you some insights of the BiSod/KSOD.

here's one of many you could read:

http://www.pcworld.com/businesscenter/article/183502/three_tips_to_avoid_the_windows_black_screen_of_death.html


For a fix you may follow these steps:


After the black screen with cursor appears, press the shift key several times (5 to 10 times). A window should appear that reads “Go to the Ease of Access Center to disable the keyboard shortcut.” Click on that item, then follow these instructions:
  1. In the explorer window that appears, clear the address entry and type MSCONFIG then press enter. Run MSCONFIG.
  2. Uncheck the two items in selective startup and press apply, then restart the computer.
  3. The computer should start normally. Now click the Start button and type MSCONFIG again, then press enter. Uncheck Windows Event Log and Windows Event Collector, then restart the system.
This may or may not work on your state but your last resort is to extract your hard drive and back-up to another unit before re-installing your OS.


Hope this helps. Don't forget to rate.

  3. Scroll down to "IPMI" and press the ENTER key
  4. Scroll down to the System Event Log and press the ENTER key.

02A2: BMC System Event Log(SEL) Full


In HP prolliant server sets, setup also logs system events. This error is due to that log. Enter setup, trace log and clear all events.

Hi from london, have new acer aspire 1 zg5 new keeps shutting down after boot can u hlp pls?


Try booting the system to Safe mode.

To boot to safe mode:
Restart the computer. As soon as the BIOS has finished loading, keep tapping on F8 key on your keyboard. When the Windows Options menu appears select the "Safe mode" then press Enter.

Once you managed to boot to Safe mode, change the computer startup and recovery settings by right-clicking "My Computer" then select Properties. Select Advanced tab. Under Startup and Recovery, click Settings. Uncheck the box for "Automatically restart" under System Failure.

Reboot again normally, see if it will reboot again by itself. If you managed to make the system boot normally, proceed to Events Viewer to find out what is the caused.

If the system failed to boot normally after doing the above, you might want to boot the system to "Last known good configuration"
