My desktop frequantaly booting what can i do


When you say frequently rebooting; Is it randomly rebooting without warning? Do you get a BSOD (Blue Screen of Death) error message? Or does the PC just reboot without any error's other than windows was not shutdown properly?

MOST random reboot issues are caused by Power issues;

-Failing Power Supply
-Blown Capacitors on the motherboard
-Insufficient power to run the system.

These would be a good place to start to troubleshoot if you do not get a Blue Screen Error Message.

-Failing Hard Drive can cause this issue as well but is usually acompanied by a Blue Screen Error of sorts.

-Failing RAM again usually accompanied by a Blue Screen Error.

You can test for failing hardware, by using Hiren's Boot Disk for diagnostic tests on your Hard Drive or Ram.

Hiren's Boot CD 15.2 - http://www.hirensbootcd.org/files/Hirens.BootCD.15.2.zip

You will want to run memtest X86 to test the Ram or Hitachi's Drive Fitness Test or SeaTools to test your hard drive.

This BootCD is not for the typical end user whom may not know there way around the features and options this Tech CD provides.

You will want to burn the Hirens Boot.ISO file to a CD (Burn Image Option) using any of your favorite flavors of burn software.

Hope this helps.

You can also download these diagnostic test individually such as memtest x86 and Hitachi's DFT or SeaTools independently from the Boot CD just by doing a google search. This might be the easier way to perform these tests for people who aren't very savvy with boot CD's.

Tip

How to troubleshoot a system that will not boot to the hard drive.


  1. Ensure that there is no diskette in the A: drive if system is equipped with a 1.44 Floppy Diskette Drive. If a disk in the drive, remove it and reboot.
  2. Boot to the BIOS, reset defaults, reboot
  3. If system still will not boot to the hard drive, power off, disconnect all peripheral items (Printer, scanner, external drives and USB drives) reboot.
  4. At this point, boot to Diagnostics partition, or CD (F12 menu on some systems, Some HP systems have Hard drive diags in BIOS, Fn+Power for Dell Portables, CTRL+ALT+D for some Dell Desktops) If the hard drive fails diagnostics, replace the hard drive. If the drive passes diagnostics, it is not a guarantee the drive is good, just no fault was detected.
  5. If the drive passes diags, then see if you can boot to a Windows CD/DVD. If you can't, either remove, turn off in BIOS or disconnect the hard drive, and see if you can boot to the Windows Media. If you can with the HDD disabled/removed/disconnected, again, replace the HDD.
  6. If you can boot to the Windows Media, then go to Recovery Console in XP and run CHKDSK /R (Vista or Windows 7, run the repair my computer option off the menu, this may take multiple passes to fix) If this fails to resolve, then boot back to recovery console and run BOOTCFG /REBUILD (This is already done in Vista/7 in the repair tool)
  7. If that fails, you will most likely be reinstalling Windows. If the Windows install crashes during a file copy, try RAM modules one at a time (Windows install is still the best RAM test we have) If the Windows install still crashes, replace the Hard Drive.

Cant install new operating systems from USB or CD and have RAM Issues.


And you changed and saved new boot order in BIOS?

You may have a bad DIMM. Test one card, one slot at a time till you identify the bad one.

Hi, The DVD/CD Rom Icon has dissapeared on My Computer. When I go to control panel - device manager and click on the dvd/cd rom drive icon I get the following message in the genaral...


You will need to re-install the driver. Right click the device in device manager and select properties. Navigate to the driver section and uninstall all existing drivers. (It may *not* give you the option to do that, depending on how corrupted the driver is, but it should.)
Reboot the PC.
Upon reboot, Windows should find the new device and install generic drivers. It will probably ask you to reboot a second time.

I used active kill to format my hard disk and now when i want to install a windows it doesnot show. what should i do???


I ran into this same problem when I used a program call "diskkill". I did not know that I changed the format of the drive using this program to wipe a virus off it. So how to fix it go to http://www.bootdisk.com/ and download the win98 boot disk .iso or a image create a bootable cd rom disk to reformat the corrupted drive. Have the system boot to the cd rom drive. have it boot to no ram drive. When the drive letter to the cdrom pops up, type fdisk hit enter. You are given 4 choices. press 1 enter. 3 enter it will verify drive, reboot using win 98 cdrom again no ram drive. at cdrom drive letter type format c: /s hit enter. That should will format your drive to be a fat 32bit. Reboot put your Windows disk in and let the system reformat the drive to NTFS or leave it at 32 bit, the limitation to a DOS format are 32gb.

Read a CD Do not read a DVD


Hi sachin,

Optical SATA drives don't come with drivers, they use the ones built into Windows. So What I would try first would be to uninstall the driver in the Device Manager, and reboot. Windows will reinstall the drivers on reboot.

To get to the Device Manager
click on Start
right click on My Computer
click on Properties
click on either the tab or link for Device Manager
look for your DVD
click on the +
double click on the DVD
uninstall
reboot

Hope this helps, let me know how you made out in a comment, if you need more help, feel free to ask in the comment.

How do i erase windows 95 and replace it with windows 98?


you get a copy of windows 98, pop in the disc, click upgrade (or fresh install if you don't wanna keep anything), and let her install. About 45 minutes after it reboots you should check on it because it has a dialog box for you then.

Windows goes off with the msg 'NTLDR is missing'


NTLDR errors are usually caused by defective RAM on the motherboard. Try removing one of the RAM sticks on your board and see if computer works fine. If still gets error msg, swap the RAM stick and try again to narrow down which stick is faulty. Sometimes, its simply some corrosion on the RAM contacts which in that case, you only need to re-seat the sticks.

Computer will not turn on


The only things that can do this are: A card failure, a hard drive failure, Motherboard faiulre, A Power Supply failure, Faulty RAM. To toubleshoot.. disconnect Hard Dive, CD/DVD remove any & all cards, see if it boots,if it does, add the Hard Drive, reboot, then add the CD/DVD, reboot, then replace A card, reboot & so on... until ya find the faulty component, that stops it. If it doesn't remove ram & see if it powers up, it will NOT boot. If it doesn't ya PSU is most probably faulty. If it does ya RAM/motherboard is faulty. So basically strip it down see if it powers up. than add things one at a time to find the culprit.. then replace the ofending item.
