Question about Systemax Venture S519J (988868) PC Desktop

Computer booting problem

When I turn my Systemax Venture computer on it does not boot right away. It takes a few minutes after I press the start up button for the power on light to come on and for the computer to go through its boot up procedure. Also at times it would attempt to boot and freeze when it gets to checking the drives. The computer has surpassed its warranty period and I can't get support from Systemax unless I pay them $40.00 per half an hour. Do you have any suggestions as to what my problem is and how to resolve it? I fear that one day I will turn this computer on and it just won't boot.

Thanks for your assistance.

I have a Windows Server 2003 system on a old Dell desktop. I want to move it (hard drives) to a Systemax Venture.

You need an IDE controller board to boot from. The SATA drives have not system on it only data, so it cannot boot from these drives.

Pc does not go beyond Lsass.exe application error

Try getting into safe mode, by taping the f7 or f8 key before it boots. Once in safe mode we can do a restore to the last restore point, and go from there. If you can't get into safe mode, let me know and we will go into the bios, set the machine to boot from the dvd drive and use your xp disk to boot her up, this method id too much to post here, let me know and we will take it up only if needed. Also try this, turn off any user accounts that the computer has installed other than your administrator account, and let me know what happens

New Computer Wont Boot!

when you say "the fan makes a noise like its getting ready to spin", which fan...power supply's or cpu? if you answer power supply, then the POWER OK signal is not returning to power supply and it then quickly shuts down to prevent further damage. double check a firm connection to mother board. If you answer CPU, then it becomes far more complicated. Try re-seating the memory chips.

Startup problem

This could be a corrupt bios or a low cmos battery, follow instructions. Take the right hand side panel off the pc. Look for a disc shaped 3V watch type battery and replace (Very cheap) Look on the motherboard and reset the bios at the 'JBAT1' terminal put jumper(little plastic cap) from pins 1-2 to pins 2-3 for a few seconds then back to pins 1-2. Restart pc and enter bios when prompted(or press F2 or DEL on startup) to set time and date, save settings and Exit bios. It should now boot ok.
