Did you reset your BIOS ? Try reset your bios. remove the BIOS battery(RTC battery) and press the power button after disconnecting from wall socket. Short the jumper somewhere near to the BIOS chip. A user manual is helpful. If you can't find the jumper, simply short the two terminals inside theBIOS battery holder. That is two golden or steel coloured thin sheet like. Put back the battery after an hour and start the system. Tap the DEL button to enter into BIOS settings and change date and time first then boot device order(boot device priority) save and exit. See what is happening. If it solves the issue you have studied another troubleshooting tip. Hope this helps!!!
Please check the Processes From Task Manager window -
Check how much is the Memory Usage -
There will be Lot of Programs running - Check the one which is taking the Max and Right click on that Program and End Process -
Remove the Program which is causing the Problem
- Better Run the Registry Cleaner tool and clean the Registry
- Also check Run the PC Virus Check and remove the Viruses
- Increase the Total Paging File Size by increasing the Virtual Memory .
Hi, what you have not tested for isolation is your power supply, re-seating of processor for 20 minutes, cmos clearing or battery removal and mother board swapping. If all your isolation seems futile the worst is the mother board.
Ok, you've got your work cut out for you here. Several ways to approach this problem. 1st. Reset the existing bios, simply remove all power from the system then simply remove the bios battery located on the physical mother board. Be careful not to touch any connectors or circuits as you can easily "fry" the mother board with static discharge. Once battery is out wait about 30 seconds then replace the battery ( watch the polarity and make sure to put it back in the way it came out and dont bend/break the contacts), and this should put the motherboard back to its factory settings. There is a bios reset built into the mother board and unless you know where it is and how to use it you'd be safer just to remove the battery. 2nd. Completely erase the hard drive using a military grade eraser program (similar to DiscWasher brand). Don't waste your time using the format that comes with Windows to do this the 1st time as it does not clear files in the parameters (hidden part of Hard Drive). A military grade eraser will take some time to run like maybe 1 to 2 days pending on how large your drive/s are. You could opt for a quick wipe of drive using 1's and 0's which would only take about 2 hrs pending on drive size. Windows will format the drive which it must do, so let it run its course as Windows will see the drive as being new and will reset the parameters as new at this time. If this works then there you go Windows should install now. (don't have a HDD wipe program? I can send you a copy of mine if you need it) You will need a cd burner and blank cd to make a copy of the program. I can send you to get the program and you will need to make a disc to run it from as it will not run from a flash drive or floppy If still not installing: Check/replace your bios battery (about $3.00) these batteries are only good for about 3 years but can die after a few weeks, some batteries have lasted 10+ years pending many variables. I believe the batery should read 1.5 volts dc on a volt meter but no less than 0.9 volts dc. If battery was not problem and you still can't install Windows 7, well now this is gonna be aggravating as heck... You will need to roll back your bios as this mother board was not designed to run anything over XP sp2 but works at its best with Windows 2000 pro. This is very time consuming so if you need the info on rolling back the bios let me know and I'll post it. Let us know how it goes and Good Luck!
Your CF-27 performs a thermal shutdown protection the moment it detected a hardware problem. Make sure that the vent holes
are not blowing off too much heat. If it does, one or more fans inside went down.
Also, does it shutdown by itself even if plugged into a power adapter? And since you have a bad battery, it time that you change them for a new one; constant shutdown of the laptop would further damage the system.
In this new tower you are swttching to, does it have it's own power supply? And if so, what are the amps, and what are the amps on your old power supply? I have the K8N, and it needs at least 450W to run decent. Let me know?
Ok, you say when you power up the unit, the power Led comes up an then goes out.? 1st. If you have the battery inserted and the power adapter plugged in and the charging light comes on, showing the battery is charging, the power adapter and battery are most likely OK. That's not the problem. 2nd. If the unit tries to power up and fails, the best thing you can do is, A. Remove any media in CD/DVD drive. Reove the power adapter and battery, B. Remove the two covers showing the Hard Drive and Memory. Remove Both H/D and Memory. C. Disconnect the CMOS Battery, located just above and top right of memory. (Next to Wireless Card). The is a white 2-pin connector. D. Flip the unit over and press the power button for 15-30 seconds. 3rd. Know you have cleared the CMOS. You will have to re-enter the time and date, once the unit comes back on line. 4th. Reinstall only one piece of memory, Then the CMOS battery and leave the cover off for now. 5ft. Install the battery, Flip the unit over and plug in the A/C adapter. 6st. Look to see if the charging light comes on. 7th. If the charge light comes up, Power up the unit. The message you should see is Date and Time press F-10 to continue. and then should say, missing Operating system or no disk found. Remember if the unit will enter the BIOS screen and does not drop off, your in good shape.! Power off the unit. 8th. Re-install remaining memory and check again. If no problems, 9th. Turn unit off and re-install Hard Drive. 10th. Power on unit and if you have problems, OK., more than likely, its the H/D. and may need to be re-formatted. If the unit comes up OK, and you suspect the hard drive is at fault, Look for the Hard Drive Test utility in the BIOS screen. (This will smart drive test the hard drive and will take some time, depending upon the size of the drive..) If you have errors on the drive on the boot partition, you will know soon enough, being the drive has two partition, one in the front of drive and one at the end. If the drive is OK good deal. If after trying all the above and the unit still will not power up and run correctly, please respond to this info. and I will run you thru some other things to check.

i dont think that is how you reset your cmos did you check your manual? second i had that same problem it it came after i put vista on my pc but it never worked. when i re-installed xp it worked again my guess is to reinstall xp then see if you can find the drivers off the manufactures website. but you say it works for two days then stops i dont know you could try updating the bios (flashing it)
