Look at the mother board depending on model etc there may be a jumper (small piece of plastic with metal contacts inside) This being moved to the proper pins will help you clear the bios to factory.

I think you have bad memory. Try to press and hold F8 button while booting windows And run windos memory diagnostic
or you can do like this...

Running Windows Memory Diagnostic

To run Windows Memory Diagnostic, do the following:

  1. Click the Start button, type mem, and click on Windows Memory Diagnostic
  2. When the Windows Memory Diagnostic screen loads, click Restart now and check for problems

  3. You computer will restart

It sounds like either Windows 7 did not install properly or you have a bad hard drive. I did some research on similar problems and most people have also tried to change the boot priority with no luck. If your are tech savvy I would try to run hard drive diagnostics and possibly reinstall Windows 7. If you are not very technical I would suggest taking it to a competent pc repair technician.

Black screen error


Hi there.
Go into the Bios and set the boot order to HDD (hard drive) as first boot device, save the changes and exit the bios, the computer will restart and try to boot from the HDD.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

COMPUTER CHECK SUM ERROR'S ?


if you can enter bios (usually by pressing f2 or del), then load the default settings, otherwise, you will have to position the jumper properly, instructions for that are as follows.

1. Touch an exposed metal part of the case to ground yourself.
2. Unplug the power supply from the wall.
3. Move CMOS reset pins to short pins 2 and 3, then wait 10 minutes.
4. Replace CMOS reset pins back to 1 and 2.
5. Replug the power supply and boot.

Bios check sum error


Your bios defaulted. The battery keeps: date, time, and bios settings. You need to get in your bios and change the settings to what they need to be. You can enter the bios by hitting DEL during boot.

Bios check sum error


You can try flashing/updating the BIOS if nothing works.

BIOS update


1. Check your PC or motherboard manufacture for BIOS upgrade and upgrade BIOS firmware.
2. Try to start your PC in a safe mode by pressing F8 before windows starts. Then select a safe mode with or without network support.
3. If your computer starts in the safe mode, check if your hard drive is not full or close to full. If it is close to full you need to remove some data from your disk. Try to remove temporary files and clear your Recycle Bin. Restart your computer.
4. You might run low on your memory. If your PC doesn't have enough physical memory, windows is creating virtual memory by using space from your hard drive.
5. If neither solution works, try to run a "CHKDSK C: /R" from recovery console.

Good luck!!!
