The computer battery needs to be replaced. The computer is missing its BIOS settings, which are stored on the computer battery on the motherboard. It's about the size of a nickel, and pops out easily. Take it to your favorite computer store and get a new one - about $8.

When i on my PC desktop, go into the windows, my PC will close and then restart, then close then restart? what's the problem?


Test your PSU power supply unit or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty


One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle of restarting or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive


Test all leads that attach to your hard drive power and data cables IDE SATA

the leads from your MOTHERBOARD TO YOUR HARD DRIVE make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty

computers need power and data to travel through every working device to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

even something as small as a faulty electrical or fan lead can cause you problems


motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive if its a flat ribbon 40 pin type IDE replace it this will be the first to fail


check all electrical power input and extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd floppy drives need to have current go through make sure these drives are working


also check the Cmos battery and computer RAM modules make sure they are securely seated with no dust built up or in the sockets on some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in

check you CPU central processing unit make sure its securely seated and has thermal paste it might be getting to hot the thermal paste will help disperse the heat

Thermal compound is a sticky paste that is placed directly onto the CPU.

Allowing for a more direct heat transfer between the CPU and HEAT SINK and preventing air gaps from forming between the CPU and heat sink.

This compound is an inexpensive solution and can be found at any local Radio shack or computer repair center

http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/Thermal-Compound-Roundup-February-2012/1490


another possible reason could be a memory dump you might be running to many programs at the one time putting to much strain on the CPU central processing unit

scroll to bottom toolbar bottom of screen right click select task manager
applications you will see whats running if you see anything you dont need running select end now

also under processes see what is ticking over again if you see something you don't need to be running end now or you might uninstall that program and some unnecessary programs


not having enough computer ram can cause memory dumps


If you are not sure if a module is right for your system use the Crucial Memory Advisor tool for a list of guaranteed compatible modules.


first you will need to select the manufacturer from a drop down list then select your product line from a drop down list then select the model then click find it will take you directly to compatible ram also you will have an option to scan your system



hope this helps

PC show the message and hang and black screen .


You are going to have to start with basic troubleshooting first.

TAKE notes as to where cables were etc. (digital camera would be useful here)

Disconnect all devices from the power supply EXCEPT the motherboard
Remove any extra cards including video etc.(plug monitor into the on-board)
Disconnect all drives

Power u the computer and make sure you can at least get into the BIOS.

If you hear any beeps these can indicate where the fault is.

Power up the PC and see if the fans are working.
If not then double check the power connections to the board.

If you still have no fans it is time to suspect the power supply as the probable cause.

If the fans worked then you should have gotten a display which told you there was an error and offering you a chance to go into the BIOS. ignore it and shut down the PC.

Now connect one drive only and boot again.
Repeat that until you identify the component that is giving you a problem.

Once you find the problem then remove or disconnect and carry on with the rest to see if another component might also cause a problem

If there is only one problem device then you may want to investigate that device further, Unless you don't mind replacing it

If its not the PSU and your fans are working it may suggest a problem with either the motherboard or CPU

You have a virus. Boot your computer into safe mode by repeatedly pressing the F8 key while rebooting until a menu comes up that allows you to choose safe mode. Attempt to run a virus scan from there. Good luck.
