Test your PSU power supply unit or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty http://pcsupport.about.com/od/toolsofthetrade/f/powersupplytest.htm 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 WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL. http://www.kitchentablecomputers.com/static.php - rules Only work inside the computer case when the power has been switched off and disconnected. Never open the power source. Some of the below steps recommend removing physical parts within the computer. While in the computer it is highly recommend that you be aware of ESD and its potential hazards 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 dvd\cd floppy drives 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. http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/Thermal-Compound-Roundup-February-2012/1490 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. 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. If you can get your computer stable enough 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 you should always for a guarantee on any ram modules when purchasing them or buy working pairs if possible. You might have a virus or malware. Download at least one of these of course it will depend on your operating system. http://www.majorgeeks.com/Microsoft_Security_Essentials_for_Windows_d6242.html microsoft security essentials your operating system must be registered Win7/Vista/XP 64 bit http://majorgeeks.com/downloadget.php?id=4281&file=1&evp=dbb3b0aebe6a6a4ff18089a6489a5e62 anti malware free edition Win XP/2003/Vista/Windows7 http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/products/security-essentials/product-information malware protection http://100-downloads.com/download.php?p=615 windows xp microsoft security essentials http://100-downloads.com/download.php?p=614 windows 7 microsoft security essentials Capacitors look like small metallic canisters and they are found in many different computer components including computer monitors, computer motherboards, video cards, power supplies and a variety of other consumer products. A bad capacitor can cause a variety of computer problems, but if you can identify the faulty capacitor you may be able to replace it and save your computer.

Capacitor
Capacitors, sometimes also called condensers, are used to store energy in an electric field. In the context of computing, capacitors are used to block the direct current being circulated around the motherboard. A typical capacitor should last up to 15 years, but some computer manufacturers use substandard capacitors resulting in shorter lifetimes. Computer Problems b> When a capacitor has gone bad on a computer you may experience a large range of problems. The computer may have trouble booting up, or it may shut down without notice after running for only a short period of time. The most common problems associated with faulty capacitors are that they cause unexpected computer crashes and general reliability issues ranging from read/write issues to distorted screen images. b> Identifying a Bad Capacitor b> To identify a bad capacitor you will need to open your computer case and locate the capacitors on your motherboard. A bad capacitor may exhibit swelling at the top or the base of the capacitor or it may sit at an awkward angle with the motherboard, so compare the various capacitors in your computer in terms of and placement. Additionally, a bad capacitor may have a funny smell or it may have a brownish residue leaking from the top or the base. b> Prevention b> Manufacturers claim that capacitors may go bad because a computer is not receiving enough power from a power supply, because of an overclocked processor or because a computer is operating in an environment with too much heat or humidity. However, some capacitors prematurely fail due to faulty work on the part of the manufacturer. If you have a bad capacitor be sure to do research as to the lifespan of other products made by your manufacturer.

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 />

Emachine EL1852 keep on restarting


Hi,
Does it load operating system fully before restarting?If it does,run a full scan of the drive with an updated anti-virus.
If not,do a reboot[enslave] of your hard disk from another computer.This is how to:-
Remove the hard disk from your machine.
Disconnect CD/DVD ROM from machine 2 and connect your hard drive.
Start the machine.'You're trying to run Unix' alert comes on, press f1[ save changes].
A disk check operation starts.This repairs the operating system on your hard disk.
After successful loading operating system of machine2,turn it off and remove your drive.
Fix it on your machine and start it.

Hope this helps.Thanks!

Seagate external hard disk is not getting detected in windows 7 previously it was detecting. i tried to change usb cable, tried on different system but nothing worked. i want to take backup of data also....


This is my suggestion for you to possibly recover the back up file in your external hard disk.

Remove the enclosure cover of the external hard disk. Detach the hard disk from the ide connection.
Change the jumper setting of the hard disk to slave. See the sticker in the hard disk to see how to set up the jumper to slave. Connect the hard disk to the ide cable inside your pc. If your computer is equipped with sata cable, just find some ide cable and connect it the the ide slot in your motherboard.

Restart your system and you will find your hard disk as drive (d:) in your system. If this was successful then problem can be cause by loose terminal solder in the usb/ide connector of the enclosure, or possible voltage drop of the power supply of the enclosure. USB driver issue or problem with the usb slot in your computer can also cause this issue.

My western digital 1tb external hard disk freeze my pc when i conected i must restart after restart is ok


every system has a limit to the devices that can be connected to them.1tb is a very large memory and is capable of making the system or the hard disk freeze causing you to restart.it is most probably that your system cannot utilize it while it is on and so has to be re-boot so as to make the hard disk boot up with the system.one very good sign of this is if your system takes a bit of longer time to boot with the hard disk connected from the start,if so my advice is for you to upgrade your system.like the ram and processors should be increased.hope this was helpful?

Connect external hard disk IBM travel star 80GB USB port 2


Unless it's windows 98 you don't need a driver. If your computer can't see it, it's probably broken. Try plugging it in to another computer and see if it can see it
