Problem with crash and reboot

My system seems to be ok All startup is ok But After a while my system crash and reboot. I check my memory and no problem were found I just get a message that hardware problem have been detected and I should contact manufacturer company. I sent an email but no news ... I just found that my computes is more stable with less memory. So I use it will only 500M of ram instead of 1G. Any way it always crash and restart after 30mn. I wonder if I can troubleshooting my motherboard Thanks Config: CPU: Pentium 4 3G Memory: 1G Harddisk : 500G x2 Internal graphic chip set

Re: Problem with crash and reboot

What operating system are you using? Do you have adequate cooling in the case? It's possible it is over heating.

Fatal error code

Most likely cause is either Operating System is corrupt or the Hard Drive is failing/failed. To check the failure you would need to put the drive in a different computer and run a Drive check on it.

Set msi 171f to factory defaults

Normally, you would press F10 or F11 at Startup to commence the Recovery Process..

Another way I have seen on some models is to tap F8, and go to a list of Startup options, and start a Factory Standards Recovery from in there, by selecting the Repair computer option.

Also ask them if it is possible to make Recovery Disk/s from the Recovery Partition in case of Hard Drive failure or System Crash.

They will tell you how to do that.

Each Computer Manufacturer has their own way of making Recovery Disk/s.

Or borrow a proper Microsoft Vista DVD(not Dell, HP, etc).
A proper Vista DVD contains all Vista versions.
The Product Key determines which Vista version gets installed.

There are 2 Vista disks: one for 32bit Operating System, and one for 64bit Operating System.

If a clean install is required with a proper Vista DVD (not HP, Dell Recovery Disks):

Go into your Bios/Setup, or Boot Menu, at startup, and change the Boot Order to make the DVD/CD drive 1st in the Boot Order, then reboot with the disk in the Drive.

At startup/power on you should see at the bottom of the screen either F2 or DELETE, to go into Bios/Setup, or F12 for the Boot Menu

MS advice on doing clean install.

A Tutorial on doing a clean install

Windows Vista Installation Super Guide

After installation > Go to your Laptop/Computer Manufacturer's website > Drivers and Downloads Section > Key in your Model number > Look for latest Vista Drivers for it > Download/install them.

Save all Data, as it will be lost during a clean install.

hope this helps

My MSI computer won't startup. It has an

It appears that you have only checked the power supply and the on/off button. There are many reasons a computer won't start.
These are only two. Have you "stripped down" the system? This means removing everything but the CPU, Memory, and video card. If it starts with only these things attached, then you can rule out the mainboard, memory, and video.
Next remove the memory. If it starts but you get memory error beeps, then it could be one of the memory modules.
After all that, you can then figure it's the mainboard or the CPU.
As for circuit diagram, I would think these would be very hard to find.

Pc restarts and restarts till warmed up

There is a memory diagnostic tool from Microsoft. Search google for a download. Its run from the CD and check any issues with the RAM. As such there is no sure way to tell whether mobo is faulty. Bdw CPU if faulty will NOT run at all; only it can be over-heating. While formatting choose the quick format option not the extended one.

Are OCZ PC3 1333 ddr3 1.65v memory compatible with

Intel's web site for the board has the following:

The Desktop Board supports the following memory:

  • Four 240-pin Double Data Rate 3 (DDR3) SDRAM Dual Inline Memory Module (DIMM) connectors with gold-plated contacts arranged in two channels
  • 1333/1066 MHz DDR3 SDRAM interface
  • Support for single- and dual-channel memory interleaving
  • Unbuffered, non-registered single- or double-sided DIMMs with a voltage rating of less than 1.6 V. Using a DIMM with a voltage rating higher than 1.6 V may damage the processor.
  • Non-ECC DDR3 memory
  • Serial Presence Detect (SPD) memory only
  • Up to 16 GB maximum total system memory
You need to contact TigerDirect and have them change out the memory for sticks that meet the above specs.

That sure does sound like a power supply issue, you should be able to take it to any local computer shop and have the power supply tested, if it's not the power supply I would look at the motherboard.

Vista goes blue and restart after unnistalling intel turbo memory

I'm afraid that the only way is to reinstal Vista. If you recive a message that says that Vista arent capeble to repait it self ther is no other way. I Guess that the instalation of the driver for Intel Turbo Memory messed up Vista pretty good and uninstal it dosent help. You will always have bad file system on Vista. Better then to star from the begining with a fresh reinstal.

Good luck

Barebones troubleshooting

Lex -

I would first check your ram, make sure its the right type and rating for the motherboard. Although most systems will beep at post for a memory issue, sometimes reseating the memory alone can clear up a startup hang.

If the memory is seated okay, the right type and speed rating, try using a different video card in the system. Its possible that the system is starting up normally, but not being displayed.

If neither of those help, minimize the system. Plug in just the bare minimum needed for operation - Power supply, processor, heat sink & fan, a single memory stick, a single hard drive, video card(if its not integrated on the motherboard). Plug in a monitor and the power cord, then see if the system boots.

If all that still fails, verify that the CPU fan AND the Power Supply fan are spinning when power is on. If so, this points to either a bad memory stick(try another), bad processor(if available, try one at a slower or faster speed), or bad motherboard.

Hope this helps!
