Run you antivirus .Clean and defrag the hard drive. If the defrag get stuck at the same percentage for a long time ,either run checkdisk to confirm or replace the drive.

MY optiplex gx280 intermittant boots correctly sometimes only to a black screen and flashing cursor.


It sounds like a problem with the boot loader inside of windows. If you are getting no errors then this is most likly the case.

The following link shows you how to get to the recovery console.
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314058


from there you need to run 2 commands. the first is: fixboot
the second is: fixmbr

Just type those in when you get to the command line. if that fails, you need to reinstall windows. either way, back up data...ie songs, pictures, documents...etc.

Gateway 7310s won't boot


Boot from a Linux Live-CD and recover your personal files - copy them to an USB stick. Next boot from the Recovery CD and do a complete reinstall, it's too late to do anything else.

Looking for a replacement power/boot up switch for a hp pavilion a1730n


They are just an intermittent contact switch. Finding the two wires to the motherboard and replacing it with a different intermittent switch from someplace like Radio Shack.

Intermittent shutdown


intermittent shutdown is kind of vague; but is usually due to heat, memory, or power supply. Do a google search for memtest 386. download and move to a floppy disk and boot from disk. See if it finds any errors. Open your case and make sure all fans are working and blow out dust while you are there. If you have access to a known good power supply swap it with yours.

Hope this helps

When I turn the hard drive on it beeps 6 times intermittently and doesnt boot up as normal. The monitor is switched on but there is no picture. I tried another monitor with my hard drive and that worked...


Unplug power from the machine for a period of 5-10 minutes.

Plug it back in and attempt to boot. Carefully notice if there are any beeps again, and listen for pauses in between. Dell beep codes go in a three pulse pattern I.E. 4-Slight Pause-4-Slight Pause-2-Pause/ and repeat.

After this, you may have to open your machine and assure that everything is well connected.

There is a chance however that a major system component has failed and needs to be replaced.

Hope this helps.
