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 Remove the memory modules from their slots. Take the opportunity to clean the slots on the motherboards and the memory module connectors. Use compressed air to blow dust away and clean contacts with a soft cloth. Do not use a metallic vacuum cleaner if it touches any component it may create a short and cause damage to the motherboard or other components. Do not use solvent that may attract dust and never poke things like cotton buds in to slots. lightly rub an alcohol (Methylated Spirits) on a cloth not to hard let the alcohol do the work on the copper gold or silver tabs and r Allow the pins to dry. They will air dry in a matter of minutes. If reseating the memory did not resolve the issue try swapping the location of the memory. If you have only one stick of memory in the computer try moving it to another slot and then boot the computer. Check the memory module and memory slot contacts. They are either copper tin or gold. The colour will tell you which they are. Mixing tin and gold can result in corrosion that prevents proper contact. Look for any sign of physical damage to the memory module, memory slots or the motherboard. Reseat the memory modules. You should hear an audible click when they are in place. Do not use too much force to reseat the memory module in to the slot this can cause damage to the module, slot or motherboard. The hardware that you are trying to access is damaged or failing.


The device drivers for the hardware are faulty or incompatible.
There is a connection problem such as a bad cable for internal hard drives
Test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive IDE,SATA
the leads from your MOTHERBOARD TO THE HARD DRIVE make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty if its a flat 40pin ide this will be the first to fail Make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd and floppy (If Applicable) have secure connections and are not faulty. or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs power and data to travel through every working device and continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: computer keeps resetting

this blus screen you speak of wouldnt happen to have a fatal error screen would it? you would be able to tell if there is a bunch of text on the screen.

unfortunately though, it sounds like you have a virus that has affected the boot sector of your system. the best way to ensure that the problem is solved is to format your drive and create a new partition.
if there is info you are needing to save you can try a data recovery program that runs without the use of the hard drive, like the one here, http://download2.lsoft.net/BootDiskDemo-Setup.exe

this is a great tool since it boot from the disk you creat instead of your hard drive. from here you can save any docs or info to an alternative storafe device before formating.
use this tool and allow it to run a complete check and get back with the results
good luck!

SOURCE: windows xp will not start in normal mode

This is not a good sign. If you are seeing the dots, which I am assuming they are in rows, or some line-like uniformity, when you first boot and on the Startup screen for Safe Mode (which is before Windows loads), this is an obvious indication that your video card has gone bad, and needs to be replaced. There is no software being loaded until you see the login screen to windows, or atleast the blue login screen flashes. This means you need to replace your video card. Fortunately, this is usually neither expensive, nor that hard. A decent video card can go for around $50 or more, depending on your needs. If you are a gamer or graphic designer, then a higher-end card will be more. Putting a new card in is not as hard as it may seem, but you may have experience on this. Let me know if I can be of further assistance, but this should solve your problem.

SOURCE: Win XP Home no longer works, won't boot from cd/or hd

Ok, obviously you have a second working computer. Is it a laptop?
I ask because my best idea for you right now considering that Preach's advice is probably right is to take your primary hard drive out of the compromised computer and plug it into another working computer via the Cd-rom cables and then boot like normal. The hard drive will just be seen as a secondary storage device. Once you get logged in, navigate to the bad hard drive and set your existing security software to scan it for viruses or spyware.

SOURCE: XP Pro only starts in Safe Mode

this is basically problem related to your hardware.. please check that you meet all the hardware requirements as well as you must have proper copy of that Xp to be installed. And if that so, then you must go BIOS settings by Pressing F8 key at booting time where you must change your booting sequence...Your problem will be solved.
if it doesn't work,then check all the drivers to be needed after installing the XP.
If the problem still persists, then you must reinstall XP.

SOURCE: vista boots just Black screen with cursor even in safe mode

Yes, this is a known issue with Vista. You need to back-up your data, format your hard drive and re-install Vista from the beginning.
There is really no use trying to repair it: it is damaged.
After you re-install Vista, do not forget to install service packs from microsoft.com.

My sansui pc/tv monitor isn't working properly when I connect it to my desktop.


Windows is likely crashing while loading recently upgraded device drivers. The most common culprits for this scenario are video drivers.

The next time you boot, as soon as you see the Dell splash screen, start tapping the F8-key about once every second until you see a white on black menu. If you see the Windows logo, you missed it (try again, this time start tapping the F8-key a little before the Dell splash screen).

This menu will allow you to boot Windows in "Safe Mode", which will bypass any non-essential drivers and applications that could be causing the crashing. Select "Safe Mode with networking".

Assuming the computer booted fine in Safe Mode, you will be able to remove the troublesome drivers. You will see an informational message about Safe Mode, which you may close at any time. Right-click "My Computer" and select "Manage". Wait a moment for the Computer Management window to appear. Then, click on "Device Manager". If Windows was able to identify the faulty driver, it will appear in the list with a bright-yellow triangle. If this is the case, right-click and "uninstall" it. If it did not show up, first click the tiny white triangle next to "Display Adapters" and "Monitors" to open those categories. Then, right-click and "uninstall" everything listed within the two categories. Your computer will probably boot normally after doing this. But, try and find the proper driver for you video adapter before rebooting if possible. I recommend also re-installing the chipset drivers which may be related to the problem.

To attain drivers for your specific Dimension B110, visit the following link and enter the service tag code on the back or side of your machine: Dell Drivers

When i turn my computer on it loads but then a erro message comes up so i want to do a pc reset and i have looked online useing my laptop and it tells me when i see a blue dell splash bar come up to press...


The procedure is actually correct. but if your computer is fast you may miss it. try this, upon turning the computer on, start pressing the CTRL+F11 immediately. if you have reformated your HDD then most likely you've lost the recovery partition for the PC Restoration.

Installed a rangeplus adapter on dell 1000 inspiron xp sp3 home


See if you can go into safe mode by hitting the F8 key right after the dell splash screen and right before the XP splash screen comes up. If you can get into safe mode try to uninstall the rangeplus adapter and try reinstalling again after rebooting the system normally.

The screen turns black and stays like that


Normally it's because the resolution is set too high for the monitor. This has happened to me when I switch a computer from a flat screen to a old "biggy-size" monitor.

try rebooting the computer and BEFORE you see the windows splash screen, start pushing the F8 key...this should bring up a menu...select VGA Mode...it won't be pretty, but once you're in..right click on the desktop and change the solution (try 800x600). restart the machine...that should work.

Windows XP Pro hangs on reboot after installation


Try removing your AGP card and enabling the onboard graphics again. It is possible your Radeon is a 3.3v, but this board only supports 1.5v cards. Take a look at the manual at ftp://download.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/D845GERG2/BV2RG2_English.pdf
