    Ok please remove the new ram that was installed and leave only the old one in and see if the pc will boot without it.

  • machadojr_fe May 11, 2010

    does the computer beep when you turn it on at all? Have you recently put any new hardware (ram, hard driver, etc) in it? What have you tried so far to solve the problem?

When You Boot up your screen goes in to the windows xp loading bar and after a quick blue flashin screen pops up and it restarts unfortunately this is what they call the Blue Screen of Death so more than likely you harddrive with the os is corrupted so either you will need to reload the OS or by a new harddrive and load the Os on that Harddrive

Hi!My laptop hangs/freezes on desktop after starting 10-20 secs. But i can run safe mode and has done System Restore but when I restart happens same problem occurs. I first encountered this problem when...


Hi,
Welcome to FixYa!
Since you already done doing system restore and same thing happens, there's a possibility that the problem is with the Operating System itself. All you need to do is to reinstall the whole operating system.
1. If you have the Recovery Disc that came with the computer, insert the disc and restart the computer.
2. It will ask you to press something, maybe Del or F2 to boot from the disc.
3. Once you press that, your computer will automatically boot from the cd and it will asked you on to which partition you will save it.
4. Choose the partition which have the largest space, usually Disc 0 Partition 1.
5. Follow the next instruction on the screen and it will reinstall the whole Operating System.
Hope this information will help. Thank you for using FixYa!

Just spent $440 to fix my computer and it just keeps rebooting all the time, just had service pack 2 installed and brand new hard drive, please help me I'm ready to throw it down the stairs


Your computer is probably encountering an error and Automatically re-booting.
In order to see what the error is, you must disable Automatic Restart. (This step will only help diagnose your problem - not solve it.)
If this is XP - (and you can keep it alive for a minute) - you want to disable Automatic Restart

Right-click on My Computer and choose Properties; then Advanced tab - at the bottom choose Settings for Startup & Recovery.
UN-check the box that says Automatic Restart - then reboot

After that step, your computer will probably give you an error message or Blue Screen instead of re-booting.
THEN yoiu can start Googling for answers or report the error back here.

What happens when it says "No audio output device installed." I have no sound. Please respond


Hello! kindly follow this steps below:
Please find your motherboard or sound card driver then insert it in your disk in the CD/DVD ROM if it is in a disk then run the setup.exe of that driver software then follow certain steps given by the computer installation wizard. Then after you finished the installation restart your computer then if the sound is restored then you have a successful sound card installation. You can do this steps again if you encounter same problem next time. The reason why this you receive this error message cause your sound driver has been corrupt and need to reinstall due to some hardware failure and software failure especially if their are virus and worms enter in your system.

Also try to update and install anti virus and update it in order to proctect and level up your security against virus, worms and hackers.

If you need more assitance please reply to this post.

Problem on 3 operating sys after reformatting


This is a common annoyance some people has encounter after reinstalling Windows.
The problem is that everytime you turn your computer ON, or restart it, you have a list of Windows you can boot from....even though you "know" there is only one.
First of all look into the BOOT.INI file, and make sure you kmow the version that is currently active.
You can safely delete the other two.
Next time you reboot, your computer should start as usual.

PS
To bring up the BOOT.INI
Go to Run, and type CMD, press Enter
at the end of the string type: cd"space".. (two dots)
Keep doing this until you get to C:/
now type BOOT.INI

A notepad document will open, and you'll see all the options you see at boot up.
Just delete the ones you know you don;t need, and save that notepad document.

Restart your pc, and that is all..!!

NO!!! DON'T DOWNLOAD ANY OF THE ANTIVIRUS SOFTWARE I HAVE MENTION BEFORE.
THEY ARE THE TOJAN VIRUS.

It seems you have a virus on your machine , that is why I mention the software before.

get a good nativirus software i.e; symantec. Mcafee, TrenMicro etc.......
go to http:\\www.trendmicro.com and get the house call antivirus. This is online scan, it may take a while for it to completed the virus scan but I think it is worth the time.

please let me know if you still have the problem.
