One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive
Test the leads that attach to your hard drive from the motherboard or replace all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA and the ones that attach from your motherboard to hard drive
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electic extensions or just replace them they are probably old and faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

hope this helps

I turn on my hp pavilion zd7020us the hp page boots up then goes to safe mode or normal mode page then goes to a very quick blue screen and turns off and starts the whole process over again any ideas

So many computer face this blue screen fetal errors on windows.

This error comes usually when there is problem in software or driver compatibility issue with hardware or operating system.
Also this error comes when there is bed indexing unit in hard drive.
You can solve this errors with following 2 methods.
(1)When you power up the computer press F8 key then enter in safe mode.
Then if you are able to enter in safe mode then uninstall driver or software which you installed recently and face this error.
(2)If you are not able to enter in safe mode Then you need to fix error on hard drive.For that you need windows disk or recovery disk.
Boot your computer with that disk
For that when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 "del" key to enter in bios.
Then go to boot menu and set first boot device as your cd or dvd rom.
Then save settings and exit bios.
Insert windows disk in cd /dvd rom.
Then it boot with that disk.Then you get this message "Press any key to boot from cd.."
Then press any key.
Then follow the procedure then enter in recovery console mode then type in prompt "chkdsk /r"
Then type "y"
Then it fix error on hard drive.
Then check if again you are not able to enter in windows then boot again and this time choose "R" option for repair previous windows " then it repairs old windows then it loads again old windows.
Thanks for using FixYa.

My Screen is blank and fan continuously runs.

your computer is not posting that is why you do not hear a beep. This can happen for 1 of 10000000 reasons but I would start with checking the RAM then all the other hardware to find a loose connection/dead hardware.

Building new computer with ASUS M2A motherboard and AMD 749 processor. Computer starts, displays ASUS setup screen, goes to blank screen with blinking cursor and then hangs up.

Try to check connections to hard drive...If OK..then check boot device priority in BIOS and change 1st boot device as Hard drive..Then If not worked then chnage 1st boot device as cd rom and boot from a bootable CD and installl OS..

System wont boot up

Have you done any setup to the new hard drive? Any new hard drive will come with no data on it. This means you will have to reinstall windows onto the new hard drive, or copy windows from your old hard drive(if it still boots up) using the CD that came with the hard drive. If your hard drive didn't come with the software, post which hard drive you have, and I can give you the link to download it.
Try and find the Windows CD's that came with your computer, and use them to reinstall it. If this was a name brand computer (like dell, or HP), then it will have come with some CD's (usually). Sometimes the restore is built into the old hard drive :-)
If this was a clone computer, you should have a legal copy of windows that was given to you.

Hp vectra vli8 p3 continues rebooting

Google bad caps on motherboard. I just revived a VLi8 which had this problem. For the KZM-6120 motherboard that I have there a six 1500 uF, 6.3 volt capacitors lined up in front of the pentium III heatsink. Look for gunk oozing out the base of the capacitors. This is a well-known problem apparently. See here:

Symptoms sound similar. What mine did was that the computer wouldn't reboot after windows 2000 reinstall, lock up during boot, and the yellow lock light would be on sometimes. I could only run from a floppy. Updated bios, changed HD, nothing worked.

Replaced the six caps, and I have reinstalled system (2000 pro) and everything is working fine.

Ax480 boot issue

if u haven't overclocked it yet (goes easy to 2.4 to 2.6 some more, don;t go over 1.7V though) then you should single out the problem part by booting with: 1) try 1 memory stick only 2) safe mode 3) only necessary cards, possibly gr.card only now as we all know the quality of Microsofts products, try installing a fresh copy of your legal windows OS on any other disk or even the same with the separate installation option if you must. Simply, there is no better way to find the problem. Windows xp is rather funny lately with its updates... Good luck m8
