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 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. Could be a problem with the Hard Drive or the Hard drives PCB http://www.onepcbsolution.com/ 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.

My Acer Aspire 7730ZG had Windows Vista on it and it was fine yesterday, but when I turned on my laptop today there's nothing. Just a blank page. I have the installation disks for Windows Vista


Could you describe what exactly you are seeing when you try to turn your computer on? (blank screen, curser blinking in upper rt corner.....)
My first instinct would be to insert windows disk (while the computer is on of course) then restart and keep pressing f12 until you get a boot menu. Choose to boot from your optical drive and choose "repair"
If this doesn't help, please post a comment letting me know what happened and I will be happy to offer further advise.
Cheers...

Wont boot in safe mode


start your laptop before booting windows press f8 button continuously

ndows 2000 / XP users

bulb.gif If you are running Safe Mode because you cannot get into Windows, you may want to first try loading the last known good configuration.

To get into the Windows 2000 / XP Safe mode, as the computer is booting press and hold your "F8 Key" which should bring up the "Windows Advanced Options Menu" as shown below. Use your arrow keys to move to "Safe Mode" and press your Enter key.

Note: With some computers, if you press and hold a key as the computer is booting you will get a stuck key message. If this occurs, instead of pressing and holding the "F8 key", tap the "F8 key" continuously until you get the startup menu.

Trouble Getting into Windows 2000 or Windows XP Safe mode - If after several attempts you are unable to get into Windows 2000 or Windows XP Safe Mode as the computer is booting into Windows, turn off your computer. When the computer is turned on the next time Windows should notice that the computer did not successfully boot and give you the Safe Mode screen.

Windows Advanced Options Menu
Please select an option:

Safe Mode
Safe Mode with Networking
Safe Mode with Command Prompt

Enable Boot Logging
Enable VGA mode
Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked)
Directory Services Restore Mode (Windows domain controllers only)
Debugging Mode

Start Windows Normally
Reboot
Return to OS Choices Menu

Use the up and down arrow keys to move the highlight to your choice.

Once you're done in Safe mode if you want to get back into Normal Windows restart the computer like you normally would and let it boot normally. Click here to get additional information about getting out of Safe mode.

When i am installing windows xp3 in compaq presario cq40-301tu there displayed blue screen error....do u know the solution to get out of this error & continuing the installstions??


A) Installing same version of Windows, or a lesser version;

Enter BIOS Setup, and in Boot Options, set the first boot device to CDROM.

{Windows doesn't like being copied over by the same version, or a lesser version.
The above will make the computer boot up from the Windows XP sp3 disk you have}

B) If your computer came with a version of Win Vista, and you are trying to install WinXP over it, reply in a Comment.

For additional questions please post in a Comment

In order to uninstall Windows XP, you will need another Operating system to replace it (such as linux or an updated version of windows) - a computer is useless without some form of operating system.

Once you have that CD or DVD, you will need to boot the computer from that disc. From there, the installation process will complete the uninstall of Windows XP.

To boot from a CD or DVD if it doesn't happen automatically when the disc is in the drive as the computer is turning on, press F12 from the first screen when prompted for 'boot options'.

E- computer turn on then the screen says it was shut off improperly. say click to restart or wait.....did this it ran through its process and went to screen with no signal. ran it again under boot and...


looks like it's stuck in a startup loop, can you boot from a windows cd into repair console (press R to repair with xp, choose repair my computer with vista or 7) ?

if so, type the command fixboot and after that fixmbr, if it still doen't work, try the chkdsk /F /R
command. if that doesn't work, try booting in hirens boot cd (download v13 and burn it to a cd rom) if still no success, you need to reinstall windows, if that doesn't work, replace the harddisk and reinstall.

Hello, i have sony vaio VPCEB46FG laptop & i have


Hi,

You're getting what's known as the 'blue screen of death' as some may call it.
This happens for various reasons, but usually occurs when Windows encounters a conflict with a hardware component in your laptop. When you try to install XP, are you doing so as a secondary operating system (dual OS boot) or are you trying to install it over Windows 7?
If you are installing XP over Windows 7, try doing a full format during setup instead of the usual quick setup. This may take some time, possibly requiring you to format the hard drive overnight but it may well solve any 'blue screen' issues you're experiencing.

Let me know if I can assist any further.

Best wishes,
Graemevm

I did a system recovery with the cds provided with the laptop for my compaq 2175 but when it restarts it gets stuck on the Windows XP screen and never gets past that point. How do I fix this?


You may have some malfunctioning hardware. When the computer boots up and you see the compaq screen, you should be able to perform hardware diagnostics by pressing one of the F keys. Look in the bottom right hand corner. My guess is going to be malfunctioning hard drive, especially since the computer is a bit "older" and age is rough on laptop hard drives.
I believe the key for diags is F9

How to open in safe mode


Turn on the PC - as soon as the BIOS screen dissapears keep tapping
F8 - this will bring up the boot menu and let you select "safe mode".
If you get to the Loading XP screen with the moving bar you pressed F8 too late, reset and try again.
