Hello, When computers "beep", they're sending the user the signal that there's some hardware problem, sometimes damaged hardware or dirty hardware, first you have to identify the piece of hardware that is giving you problems, I would go after memory in the first place, open your computer an you'll see the internal parts. Remember to turn off your computer first.

This are the memory modules, if you have more than one take only one first, unlock the memory module by pressing the small plastic tabs on both ends of the slot, then take out the memory module. now turn on your pc.

If the pc is still beeping, turn off the pc again, take the second memory module out and put back the one you took out, tu put a memory module remember to force the memory into the slot the right way, if the memory is not fitting into the slot turn it down side up and push it into the slot until you hear two "clicks".

If both memory modules doesn't seem to respond, turn off your PC and take both memory modules off, clean the contacts using a pencil eraser, be gentle while cleaning the contacts as a lot of pressure will damage the memory modules, put them back in and turn back on your PC.

Take the dust off the memory slots by using a paint brush.

I would try cleaning both memory modules first and putting both in once the contacts are clean.

Try this and if you're still having problems I would recommend you to seek for a professional to solve your problem.

Hope this tip helps and have a nice day.

Don't hesitate to reply if you're still having problems.

SOURCE: Cannot get computer to boot, loops foxconn logo

When this happens, it is either a driver issue, or the Hard Drive is bad. You need to try to bootup in safe mode, F8 at boot time. select, boot to safe mode desktop, IF it boots to this, i think, you may need to install the most up-to-date Video driver, in fact, you should, obtain and have at hand ALL drivers for your MB, and add on's/ This way you can install, in a s situation such as this. Store on a USB drive, and install them off this. Now if you cannot, access F8 or the PC, you need to get into the BIOS, set to boot from DVD, Boot from the Windows, install DVD, now perform a FULL FORMAT, and then try an install, if this doesn't work, either your install disc is corrupt, or the hard Drive is, i would suspect, first the Install DVD and then the HDD, you need to swap out a HDD to check. It may also be a piece of hardware attached too, again swapping out is the only way to track down a problem

SOURCE: Reinstalled Windows XP on an old computer (DELL Dimension 2400) and the monitor won't display above basic resolution. Downloaded and reinstalled the monitor driver and still no good. Opened up START

According to the Dell Support web site the Dell Dimension 2400 has a built in Intel 3D extreme graphics adapter, assuming you are using this and not a PCI graphics card.

Go to the Intel Download Centre and run their Intel Driver Update Utility which will automatically scan your system for updated drivers for any installed or integrated Intel devices.

If the Intel Utility identifies an updated driver for your graphics adapter then download and install that which should enable you to configure a higher resolution for your display.

DVD's won't play in my TSST corp CDDVDW SH-224BB. Diablo played fine in it, but no DVD's.


Try this...
Go to device manager right click on and un-install the DVD drive. Then restart the computer and wait for the "Found New Hardware" balloon message to disappear. That reloads the drivers. Then put in a dvd and see if it works.
Also, you may have inadvertently turned off autoplay. If so, turn it back on. See here...

Password lockout .i bought it second hand . cannot get refund. can i install windows 7 without password?


Hi Howie,Absolutely you can install Windows 7 without the password. What you're going to need to do is get a copy of the Windows 7 install CD. Put that in your CD/DVD Drive and then restart you're computer. While you're computer is turning on, press F12 to access the boot menu. Select the CD/DVD drive, and then you should see a message saying "press any key continue...". Press any key on the keyboard. You can then follow the on-screen instruction to reinstall Windows from scratch!If you need any more assistance, please feel free to ask.Alex

How do I install Windows 7 on my Acer Aspire 5536


The FIRST thing people need to do when proceeding to install Windows 7, is to make SURE there are compatible DRIVERS.

IF the computer manufacturer does not offer Windows 7 compatible drivers, for the computer in question, DO NOT load Windows 7.

[ Drivers are small pieces of software written, so that the Operating System can 'communicate' with a device.

Windows Vista, and Windows 7 are two examples of an O/S.
Audio (Sound), Graphics, LAN, and so on, use a chipset.
This chipset is a device.

Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integrated_Circuit ]

Fortunately I looked, and Win7 drivers are available for the Acer Aspire 5536 Notebook PC,

http://support.acer.com/us/en/product/default.aspx?tab=1&modelId=1119

BEFORE you install Win7, click on the Drivers, and download the compatible drivers for THE device in your computer, and the matching Win7 driver.

Burn them to a CD disk. Have ready to install.

[ Acer doesn't list what each driver is, until you click on Download, at the right side of the driver file.

Let's take Audio for one example.
There are 4 Audio drivers listed.

Click on Download at the right side, of the first Audio driver listed.
In the small window that comes up, you can see it is for WinXP.
XPx86. (Windows XP 32-bit)

It is also for a RealTek audio device. (Chipset)
(All the Audio drivers are)

Click on the second Audio driver listed. (Click on Download)
This one is for Vista
The third one is for Windows 7 that is 64-bit, OR 32-bit.

(Look at the Windows 7 carton. Does it state 32-bit, or 64-bit?
Doesn't matter for the above driver, as it is for both, but other drivers may be just for 32-bit, OR 64-bit.)

Go to Device Manager, and see what each device is.
(Click on the Windows start button, click on Control Panel, click on Performance and Maintenance, then on Device Manager)

Write them down. Download, and burn to disk the proper drivers ]

NOW, with the proper drivers available, proceed to install Windows 7.

(I have been told that some Vista drivers do work for Windows 7.
Need to make sure, as once you install Windows 7, it is a bear to try to reinstall Vista, if Win7 does not work)

Windows does not like to be written over, and Vista has a security measure that is better than previous versions.

Go to BIOS Setup, and in Boot Options, make sure the first boot device is CDROM.

How?
As soon as the computer is started look down at the bottom of the screen.
You won't see the P.O.S.T. screen, but the Acer logo screen.
At the bottom of this screen, states what key to press to enter BIOS Setup.

(Power-On Self Test)

It may state something along the lines of;
enter Setup, or
enter BIOS Setup, or
Enter CMOS Setup. (Old. Doubt it)

This screen goes by f-a-s-t.
You probably won't be able to press the correct key in time, to enter BIOS Setup.
No problem.

Simply restart the computer. As soon as it restarts, start tapping on the appropriate key. (In 2 second intervals)

You may hear a beeping as you are tapping on the key. This is a Stuck Key Error Code. Ignore it.

Should be the DELete key, or F2.

When you enter BIOS Setup you CANNOT use your mouse anymore. You use the Keyboard.

The navigation guide is at the bottom of every screen in BIOS Setup.
It doesn't state navigation guide, however.

There are two major BIOS manufacturers. AMI (American Megatrends Inc), and Award/Phoenix.

There are several versions of each, so I cannot guide you directly.
However if you need help just post what you see, and I will guide you.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Windows 7 will not recognise vdr-m70 dvd camcorder


Panasonic supplied software for the VDR-M70 for Windows 98 through XP on the CD. Due to changes in the OS over time, the installer can't run under Windows 7. Panasonic has not updated the drivers for Windows 7 and Microsoft indicates that it is not compatible with any version of Windows 7.

There are work-arounds depending on your version of Windows 7. If you have the 32-bit OS, try using the compatibility mode. To find out which version of Win7 that you have, click Start > Control Panel > System and Security > System. If the name of the OS ends with x64, then you have the 64-bit version of the software. Otherwise, you have the 32-bit version.

For the compatibility mode, right click on the installer on the CD (browse Computer). Choose Properties and then click on the Compatibility tab. Select Always Run this program as and an older version of Windows (XP). Apply and Save your changes. Then right click again on the installer and choose Run as Administrator.

This may not work (and won't work for the 64-bit Windows 7). If it doesn't work, you need a machine with an older version of Windows. This can be a second computer, a dual boot computer or a virtual computer (if your hardware supports virtual computing). For most options, you will need a licensed copy of the older version of Windows.

If you have Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate or upgrade to one of them, you can have a virtual version of XP for free. Download and install Virtual PC and XP mode from Microsoft in order. Then install the software for the camcorder in XP mode as if it were your only computer. (Of course this doesn't help if your hardware doesn't support the Virtual PC.) Other virtual computer programs are VMWare and Parallels.

Note: you can not directly share files or hardware between the Win7 and the virtual computer. You have to put files on an external drive (optical, flash drive or other external hardware) to share them.

I hope this helps.

Hello, ive just bought a brand new motherboard (GS7610 ULTRA) and i have installed it into my case with all my components and when i go to start my computer up, it goes pasted the boot menu and then i get...


Are you trying to install this OS (Operating System) , or is it already installed on a hard drive?
If you are installing it, make sure you change the boot order to the optical drive (DVD drive). If it's already installed, was it installed with an OEM disk? If yes, then you might need a new Windows XP disc. This is because, when using an OEM disc, if you change the hard drive or motherboard, it doesn't really work.

My laptop wnt boot up no matter safe mode or the other start menu's what am i to do


Do you have an external CD or DVD drive to plug into it? If so, and if you have a Windows installation disk, you can boot from the disk and do a chkdsk scan on the drive to make sure the drive doesn't have errors. If the drive doesn't have errors, you'll need to do a rebuild of the operating system.

If the drive did have errors and chkdsk says it fixed them, try booting into windows again.

If it still won't boot, do the OS rebuild.

If it reports there is no hard drive, you've got bigger issues and will need to have the unit repaired.

Sir my window 7 is currepted what can i dorahul


Hi,

If your Windows 7 is corrupted you may have a couple of options. The most extreme, but fairly simple is to reinstall Windows. If data is not backed up, however, you may lose this. You will need your Windows 7 CD/DVD to reinstall Windows. Insert the disc into your Computer, reboot the computer and go into your BIOS. Set the computer to boot from the CD/DVD drive first. Once your computer reboots it should boot into the CD and start the install process. You may have a recovery option here.

Another option is to use System Restore which is a built in Windows Utility. To use System Restore go to Start > Programs > Accessories or Administrative Tools and choose System Restore. Alternatively, you can go to Start and in the search box type System Restore. Select a Restore point before your system was corrupted and see if this resolves your issue.

If you can't boot into Windows then you will need to boot into Safe mode to work on the problem. While the computer is rebooting keep pressing F8 and you will get a menu. Choose Safe Mode at this menu and then perform your troubleshooting.
