1. The issue is with the RAM of your system. If you have installed a new RAM chip, then remove it. Or get your ran checked.

2. The issue may arrise due to the Faulty SMPS

Trying to restore os

Tap F1 when booting, to enter the BIOS Setup utility, and make your CD/DVD drive the first boot device. However, I'm not sure you need to put the system disk in to restore. This machine may have a hidden restore partition. Try this. Remove the disc, and invoke your restore by pressing F11 when booting, and follow the on-screen instructions. See page 49 of the manual for how to restore the computer to the original configuration...

How to remove Multiboot Option in Windows

If under various circumstances you had to install a second Windows OS on the same system, you should have already met the dual boot option. It will pop up before booting the system permitting the user to select which OS will boot.

Boot.ini, the house of the dual boot option Boot.ini is a system file found in the system root. Because it has a major importance for the booting we have to edit this boot.ini file to remove multiboot popups.

How to edit Boot.ini

1.Go to Start Click on Run
2.Type msconfig.

Once the system configuration window pops up, you will notice that Boot.ini has its own tab. Select that tab and where you see "timeout," set it to a lower or higher value. Remove/Add Operating Systems in the dual boot menuThis is the main issue.

Step 1:Right click on My Computer icon and select Properties.

Step 2:From the properties window go to Advanced > Startup and Recovery > Settings.

Here, you can both edit the timeout value and modify the Boot.ini file by clicking Edit. If you remove the second operating system from Boot.ini, the dual boot option won't appear before booting.

When booting desktop doesn't load

There are a couple of quick fixes you can do.

First, boot into Safe Mode (Repeatedly tap the F8 key while the system is booting, before the windows logo appears) A Menu will pop up, press Boot Into Safe Mode. From there you can try a System Restore to a known good date.

System Restore - Click Start -> Control Panel -> On the top right, type "System Restore" without the quotes. Click on "Restore system files and settings from a restore point". You can choose the recommended restore or a specific date.

The other option is to boot into "Last Known Good Configuration". To do this, use the F8 trick again while booting, but instead of Safe Mode choose "Last Known Good Configuration".

Please note that either of these run a risk of some data being lost from the time the restore point was made. You "shouldn't" lose anything but just want to make you aware.

If this helps please give a good rating. Thanks.

My husband's e-machine T2882 began to make jittery noises the light on the front flashes as does the monitor with a ticking sounds then nothing happens. You can't get it to turn on. We've rebooted shut...

If there's a ticking sound, its probably your hard drive giving out. You have to read what comes on the screen for clues but .....................

You could try booting into safe mode (press the F8 key while booting several times) and completing a system restore. (Start - All programes - Accessories - System Tools - System restore) to a date when it last worked.

If you can't get to the safe mode, then, as its 7 years old, its probably time to treat yourself to a new one.

Computer is not booting properly

Unplug power from the device for 2-5 minutes, with the machine in the On position if possible, or holding the power button in for at least 20 seconds.

Once this time has elapsed, attempt to boot the system pressing F8 repeatedly while it is powering on.

If you can get to a boot menu, select Safe Mode.

Simply allow it to Boot and then select Shut Down

Boot it back, and your issues, if minor, should be resolved. Please let us know if you are still having any issues.

Try going to setup or safe-mode. The first boot display will say how to get to setup at the bottom of your display. F8 will get you to safe mode. Also please state your operating system. Steve Medley

My home pc trouble in windows xp professional

Hi chirutha,

Which version of Windows are you running? I would suggest running System Restore to a point maybe a week ago and then trying it again. You can find System Restore from your Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools menu. System Restore for Windows is non-destructive and won't delete any data files (music, pictures, documents) that you've put on the computer. It's also reversible.

You can also access System Restore directly from booting into Safe Mode (after the system POST startup messages run when the computer is booted up, press F8 until the Windows Boot Menu comes up and select Safe Mode).

If you can't power your computer down, hold your breath and then hold the main power button for five seconds and it will shut down.
