Question about Dell Dimension 2400 PC Desktop

2 Answers

My desk top started getting slower and slower to turn on. To a point, where the screen would almost flash for 30 minutes, before I get my desk top and can use the computer. Then, one day, it decided it does not want to turn on, even if the monitor kept flashing. It has plenty of memory, that's not the problem. I don't know what us. Is it the monitor or the computer!!!! Thanks

You should really run a good scan on the machine to rule out malware infection. Download, install and run the scan/clean in Malware Bytes.

Post your results back here (we can try a few other things afterward but we need to know you have a clean platform first).

Why won't my COMPAQ PRESARIO SR2032X desk top


Please turn off the computer, start hitting F8 at the start-up and then choose last known good configuration. If this does not work, choose Safe mode options.
If still does not work, please try to restore the computer to factory settings. You can try to hit F11 or F10 at the startup to initiate recovery.
If not working, please tell me what error message you get on the screen.

My boot log must be set up incorrectly on my desk top


If you have boot to disc set higher than your primary hard drive you will typically see this. This is normal and in a few seconds it should boot to your hard drive as normal. If it isn't passing this point you can set hard drive to first boot device in BIOS. Also make sure you don't have any flash drives or external hard drives plugged in. Your computer could be trying to boot from them and it will just sit there.

Hi,


Switch ON the PC, boot the PC in 'Safe Mode' by continuously tapping F8 button after you switch On.

Let windows boot in Safe Mode and log in to windows.

Go to 'Start'--->Programs--->Accessories--->System Tools--->System Restore

Here you will have to check "Restore computer to an earlier time' and click Next
Now you will find one Month Calendar window with Dates below, go to the previous month by clicking the '<' sign in the upper left hand corner of the Month Calendar and select any date that you see in Bold.


The detail of that particular date should show "System Checkpoint" and time on the right hand side box. Select that date.

Now, Click on Next and System Restore will start and windows will take a reboot.

After reboot login to windows and

Go to 'Start' and then Run
write "msconfig" inside Run tab and press 'enter'
inside the 'System configuration utility' window click on 'startup' tab then uncheck all the applications except your current antivirus and press apply then 'ok' and then 'exit without restart' option.

Now right click My Computer and go to properties tab.
click 'Advanced' tab then under performance menu click on 'settings'
go to 'Advanced' click on 'change' and increase your virtual memory to 2048 in both spaces.
Now restart windows.

To quickly restart windows press CNTRL+ALt+DEL
inside task manager you will find all the open applications.
right click on each application and click on end process tree then ok

Close all your apps like this and you will find your windows a lot faster and now you can reboot or turn off your windows as usual from start button.



Next time you login to windows your issues will be resolved.

If you feel that my answers have helped you getting solution to your problems then please give a vote.

Thanks.

Bios setting problem


This happens because Windows is corrupted.

You need to start the computer with a windows install disk, or a factory recovery disk inside to reinstall the system.

Get a windows install disk and reinstall the system.

My laptop was turned of during an recovery point[system restore]


Try doing a system restore from a previous retore point. However, you will not be able to recover any files that were saved after that point.
If all else fails, you may have to reinstall the OS. The "wininet.dll" file may be from some software you installed at a later point..
