You should CLEAR AND RESET THE CMOS on the motherboard and then ON A RESTART go in the BIOS reset everything to its default setting. It should BOOT when it does you can then go back into the BIOS and change things, but write them down as you change them to eliminate the problem. YOU DO NOT MESS IN THE BIOS UNLESS YOU ARE AN EXPERT OR PRO !!!

Dell optiplex desktop freezes up at boot screen. Says drive 2 not found. Bios setup is correct and boot sequence has been setup correctly. Was working before but now freezes up.

Swap out the ram one stick at a time, bad ram has been known to cause this type of symptom, the other thing to check is the motherboard, check the led light on the board is green, if not and it is yellow or amber indicates motherboard issues.

I have an ASUS P5GLV-MX ACPI- computer. when I turn on my computer,sometimes it will boot up and sometimes it will not. it will just freeze up and sometimes it will say fan error or sometimes it will ask...

Sounds like a RAM issue, or failing motherboard.
However, first thing I'd do is boot into the bios and set the bios to "defaults" or "optimum defaults" or whatever safe-defaults option there is (might be in the last tab/menu/page where you exit or save). Sometimes we inadvertently make a change in the bios which causes issues like this, and resetting things to "stock" settings will fix this.

The CHEAPEST and first thing after that I'd do is replace that bios battery (Cr2032 as I recall).

Then I'd download and reinstall the Bios, if the problem persists.

This is often what happens when small things begin to fail on a motherboard. It could be the battery, or a small regulator circuit or diode for timing or RAM or bios functions. I've got some older machines that do this everytime I shut them off. I've replaced the bios and battery and that fixed it many times.

The troubleshooting can be too tedious, even with newer motherboards and gear. If you're set on continuing and these things don't fix it, pull EVERYTHING off the motherboard except the cpu/heatsink fan and one stick of RAM (no optical drives, no hard drives, no peripheral PCI cards). If that doesn't fix it, then change the PSU or swap it out to make sure you're not dealing with an inadequate power supply to the motherboard (faulty PSU's cause all kinds of odd problems to computers).

No luck, replace the motherboard.

Hi all P.3 onboard lan how to disable in bios its a 2.8gig with 1gig ram its say's the lan is not right and can not boot?

While booting your PC, watch the screen, it'll say something akin to press DEL for setup or F2 for boot menu.

Its the setup bit you want, takes you into the bios.

Read carefully the directions on the bios screen, they will show you how to change the settings.

Once in the bios, go to the boot options part of the menu and reset the boot order.

I'd suggest 1st) Disk drive, 2nd) HDD , 3rd) External or what option you think best.

This will direct your PC to look for a boot file in the Disk drive first, HDD second and ? third.

Once set up press F10 to save and exit

Drive is detected by computer but when tried to access it, computer freezes up and cannot access external hard drive

First attempt to format it. If that doesn't works, restart your computer and acces the BIOS SETUP menu, and check if the drive is well read by the BIOS. If that doesn't work, then you may have to call the warranty.

For the Best OS, you need to make sure the computer is able to get the requirements for certain OS.
For WinXP atleast 256 MB RAM(recomended 512mb),For Vista 512MB(recommended 1gb)
