Windows system always restart


Computer often restarts, can not enter windows.<br /> Firstly check your ram.<br /> If you can, do a test with the new ram it's better.<br /> if not, make sure your use ram is fully functional.<br /><br />Turn on your computer, if the problem is still the same.<br />Do a test on your power supply. make sure the power supply to do the test is 100% work or use the new.<br /><br />Turn on your computer again, if the problem still occurs. unplug all cables connected to hard disks, cd / dvd rom, floppy and remove all the pci cards. now leave the connection to the power supply to the motherboard and the other connecting wayer suiz on / off (all the connections on the panel) if you are using a display card, left the display card in the slot and then turn on your computer.<br /><br />Now look at the results. if still the same. This means you need to do tests on your processor and motherboard. but if your computer does not restart again stable, this means, most likely the problem comes from the hard disk.<br /><br />Ok. now try to connect to your hard disk. problem occurs frequently restart <br />again right?<br /><br />If so, you need to perform tests on your hard disk. <br />how to perform the test, if you have important data in the hard disk. I suggest you first Copy your data to another computer first. by connecting the hard disk into the computer that you want to use to make copies (if the type of hard disk pata / ideas, set the jumper to slave and connect to any idea that the cable has not been used in the computer you use, if no the cable idea, you can use a cable that is used for cd / dvd ram for a while) if your SATA hard disk, no need to set jumpers, just connect the sata cable and then just copy the data may be at work to do.<br /> <br />After completion of all copied data. The cover page, then klik2x on my computer icon. observe the hard disk drive for. (For example, now for the hard disk drive is e. Right-click on the drive and click format. If the page to format mungul. Tick box format for quick and clear the volume level and then click Start.<br /> <br />after the format, remove the hard disk and set the jumper to the original and put it on your computer. then for the window installation process you will be done as usual.<br />** (If your problem still occurs. My suggestion is that you must use a new hard disk or a 100% hard work and re-do the installation window, because the hard disk is damaged or has a bad sector will cause your system files are always auto restart due -file to boot normally have been damaged or lost due to bad sectors.) **<br /> <br />good luck ... <br />Contact me for further problems<br /><br />Regards<br />multilinkent<br />Thank fixya<br /><br /><br />

Media test failure ideacentre 320


The error PXE-E61: Media test failure usually means the hard disk has failed or the hard disk needs re-seating or the disk controller is faulty.
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.

When my computer starts it goes to a black screen and says "no bootable device jnsert boot disk and press any key" what can i do


Normal 0

This error message - "No bootable device. Insert boot disk and press any key" means -

The PC cannot see a boot file/disk on either the hard disk or floppy drive.
Check the floppy drive and remove and floppy disk.
If there was no disk in the floppy drive then it is a hard disk problem.
Check the BIOS to see if the hard disk is detected, if not open the case and re-seat the data cable on the hard drive and also where it connects to the motherboard disk controller.
If it still gives this error message and the BIOS does not detect the hard drive, then the hard drive is probably faulty.
A further check on the hard drive, remove the hard drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port, if this computer does not detect it as an external storage device then the hard drive is faulty.
To get the computer working again, install a new hard drive in your computer and then install Windows on the new hard drive plus the computer's device drivers and your programs.

PXE-E61: MEDIA TEST FAILURE, CHECK CABLE PXE-M0F: exiting Broadcom PXE ROM. Operating system not found. how 2 solve or repair? help me...


The PXE-X61 error means that the laptop cannot detect the hard drive. This can be caused by a faulty disk controller, or a faulty disk drive.
1st. Reseat the hard drive and see if the laptop boots up.

2nd. Go into the BIOS configuration and see if the BIOS detects the hard drive.

3rd. If the BIOS can't detect the hard disk, the remove the hard drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and plug it into a working computer's USB port. If this computer detects this drive as an external disk drive and you can see the contents of the hard drive, then the hard drive is OK and the fault is in the laptop.

4th. If the hard drive cannot be detected then the hard drive is faulty, you need to replace the faulty hard drive in your laptop and install Windows to get an operating laptop again.
