SOURCE: computer restart

Have you tried replacing the entire heat sink with a bigger fan. They sell heat sink plus fan but you have to buy one that fits unto the motherboard.

Also, if this processor keeps heating up, the processor itself might get damaged, if it hadn't already. You might want to get the processor itself tested at a computer repair shop or if you have another computer using same type of processor.

SOURCE: Having problem installing Windows XP on My Acer Aspire T650 Computer

Before you did the install did you make sure that you set your CMOS setting to check for a cd disk first before booting straight to the hard drive? When you do an install, you must make sure that the computer knows to look for a bootable disk otherwise it will look for an operating system to boot to first. If this is the problem, after you have installed your operating system you must go back and reset your CMOS settings to look for a hard drive or operating system. Hope this help and if it doesn't let me know for further assistance.

SOURCE: Desktop icons do not load when pc is restarted - something in the regestry was accidentially deleted. How can this be fixed? System restore didn't work. Thanks!

If this is windows xp log in as the local administrator and rename the folder that accounts profile is in (c:\documents and settings\%user%). Log off local admin and log back into the account you were having trouble with. If that fixes it go back into the profile you renamed and copy the old info from desktop etc into the profile it created after you renamed the old one.

SOURCE: My computer keeps restarting after I installed new hardware

Make sure that all of the new ram sticks are completely pushed down. Also confirm that you used the correct Ram for you Motherboard.

I would also make sure that all power connectors from the PSU are tight.

I would also reseat the video card. As well as making sure you have the correct drivers instaled.

Hi ash_choudary,

Sounds like your running XP Service Pack 2. They had problems with certain machines motherboards from different manufacturers. The solutions if that's your problem, is to update to Service Pack 3.

Then it will stop doing that.

Good Luck

My Dell OptiPlex GX 520 has frozen. It runs Windows XP. Here in the UK, we have had a cold snap in what the papers are calling "The Coldest Day". Dunno if that's got anything to do with it. Anyway, I came...


The weather has nothing to do with the operation of your computer, as long as the computer is indoors and it is operating within a temperature of about 15 degrees and above.

The problem must be on your Operating System (OS), it must have been corrupted and is failing to load the operating system. This could be caused by a number of reasons, which may include, a recently installed program or hardware, viruses.

You need to repair the operating system to solve this problem.
Use your Windows XP OS installation CD to perform a system repair.

To perform a system repair, follow these steps:

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} Procedure for performing a Windows XP Repair:
  • Insert the Windows XP CD.
  • Restart the computer, and then press any key to boot from CD.
  • Windows will ask you to press R to repair using recovery console, ignore this message and press Enter to continue with setup.
  • After the files have been loaded, Windows will start and a list of options will be displayed. These will include, “Press Esc for a new installation”, “Press R to repair Windows”.
  • At this point, press “R” to repair Windows XP.
  • Windows will restart and the repair process will continue automatically.
  • Windows will restart and ask you again to press any key to boot from CD, ignore this message and let the process continue automatically.
  • A blue screen will appear and the installation will continue.
  • You will also be asked to enter your product key, enter the product key that came with the CD, then continue with the setup process.
  • Windows will restart for the last time, ignore the “press any key” message again. Windows will welcome you in for the first time, the repair process will have been complete.

Performing a system repair will not delete your data or change your settings.

If this doesn't solve your problem, you will have to make a new installation of you Operating System, let me know and I will show you how to do this.
Thank you for using Fixya,

Iqon Desktop to be reinstalled to Factory default Win XP Home.

Usually the problem lies with your Software or Windows Installation. The problem is when you Boot your computer it can't read because some how the hard drive got scrambled. You have to Install a fresh windows to solve the problem, no other way around it. Obvioulsy, its no good to you in this condition, Insert your Installation disk and turn the computer off and then back on, Install a new Windows. Good Luck. When the computer asks you if you want to install windows to that drive, you might want to consider if you have to delete that partition, and then create it again, after you do Windows will automatically format the disk for a fresh installation.
