Hi, is the ide-ata enabled in the bios? do you have sata? and is it enabled?also did you put thermal compound on the cpu' s heatsink when you put it back on the cpu? the 2 second on thing sounds like over-heating,do check the bios first. alot of motherboards have a thermal shutdown, so if the fan or compound failed, it would quikly shut off. as for the channels not working-you can try your primary drive, and see if it boots. but first see if it is on in the bios. check and replace the battery on the motherboard. post again if you need help good luck! hope this is helpful.

My tablet will not turn on after I restarted it.


Just guessing, however, I have found that I need to completely shut down electronics (remove all power sources, including those plugged into power and take a break). I am not sure but generally to actually shut down the power, you need to hold the power up button long enough to actually hear it shutdown.
after a break, begin restoring power to the tablet, the charger, any other related device. It might work.

Hello
Sounds like you need a new cooling fan.You may be able to save yours with some electrical contact cleaner spray.
Remove fan and spray.
The cpu will heat up quick and shut down everything to protect itself.Im sure once you get a new fan you will be up and running again.
You may consider reapplying new conductive paste to the processor while you have the case open.

Over heating on my Medion MD 97900 laptop any ideas


When the CPU overheats then it will shutdown (i.e. thermal overload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down.If this is the problem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes this problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan. If the fan and heat sink is clogged withdust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use acan of compressed air to do this.

When istart my computer it starts to boot then stops then continues to repeat this cuycle over and over


One bad lead will cause your computer to shut down or continue in a cycle
replace all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA and the ones that attach from your motherboard to your hard drive

Foreign disks, or drives that have pre-existing operating systems installed with prior configurations, are often prone to error unless transplanted into systems with a nearly identical configuration.

The only simply way to rectify this issue is to boot off of the Windows installation disk and perform an "In-place Upgrade" or a "Re-install" of Windows. This method will re-install just the main portions of Windows, and write the new configuration, while in theory not disturbing the rest of the drive's data.

While this is a documented and intended function of the Windows installer it does have its issues.

I can say with confidence that you can attempt this, but I would suggest confirming that you have all necessary data backed up before you do.

As far as the other alternative, you can always save your data, plugging the drive into a different machine, and then do a clean install which is a much better choice as far as performance and stability, but the choice is yours.

This link to Microsoft's site further explains the necessary steps for an "In-Place Upgrade" which really means a Re-installation of a Full Copy (Not an upgrade copy) of Windows, if you were concerned about the terminology.

Those are your options. Should you require any more information, please let us know. If this information was helpful, please take a moment to rate this solution, Thank you.

System does not recognize reading drive D: or burner drive E:


hello, if i understand you right, you have 2 cd-dvd drives in your computer and they don't work. ok, see if the secondary ide channel is enabled-in the system bios-when you turn it on- could be the f1or f2 or del key, it should say in the post screen(if you don't allready know) do not change settings,if you are not sure. if i is enabled try disconnecting one drive at a time. could be a bad one messing you up.and make sure the jumper on the drive is set, for master or cable select, marked on back of drives. did something happen? or did it just stop working? hope this helps you. reply if you need further assistance. good luck!

Rebooting


Random rebooting, without know the history of your PC all I can do is give you a list of things to try and look for. The first thing I would do is check the basics, if that turns up nothing then the only option left is to removing variables one at a time. Obvious things to look for: - Physically remove and clean the processor heat sink. Make sure the area directly underneath the CPU fan is clean of dust; you have to remove it usually to make sure. When you reattach the heatsink take the opportunity to clean off the old and reapply new thermal grease. Use sparingly to ensure excess material doesn?t get on the CPU pins or the motherboard. - If you have a video card with its own heatsink and/or fan make sure it is free of dust. Make sure the fan runs freely and forcefully. It usually takes a can of compressed air to clean the dust underneath the fan, in some cases it requires disassembly. - Make sure all connectors are snugly plugged into their sockets. - Make sure all cooling fans, especially the power supply are running smoothly and forcefully. - Vacuum out case air vents and blow out dust from all secondary heatsinks and around the memory modules. - If your computer is plugged into a power strip or UPS try plugging it directly into a tested wall socket. - With the computer running try wiggling where the power cord plugs into the PC and the wall socket. If nothing turns up the next step is to make this computer as basic as possible. Disconnect any secondary drives, all USB devices, hubs, ports, printers anything you can remove and still have the PC boot. Don?t assume something couldn?t possibly cause this, making assumptions works against you. Run the machine in the basic mode and see if the problem persists. If it doesn?t don?t assume its one of the things you removed, replace the items one by one remembering it could be a power problem that only manifests itself when lots of stuff is plugged in. If the problem persists try these one at a time: - Typically your system BIOS will have a safe or factory reset mode, set it to that making note of the setting you had originally. - Try removing the hard drive and boot via a CD (Windows install or a diagnostic disk will do). - If you have a plug in video card try using the motherboards built-in video or another know good video card. - Test or preferably replace your power supply with a known good supply. - Try new memory. - At this point we?re probably left with just the processor and motherboard which means unless you have spares around you?ll need to start considering if its time to upgrade to a new motherboard and/or processor. Also if you haven?t done so already you should immediately backup (and test) your important files stored on your computer. The random shut downs are dramatically increasing the chance your hard drive will suffer damage or data corruption. I hope this helps but let us know if you have any other questions and please don?t forget to rate this post.
