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.
this is what happened to me 2 times first change ur hard disk drive (HDD) with any other of your may be friend if the problem fixes then it is okay if not t hen may be ur mother board or processor is bad NOTE:BEFORE U DO ANY THING CONSULT ANY EXPERT PHYSICALLY OR UR PARENTS IF UR A CHILD

I can't see how holding the button a little longer would make any difference, the button press sends a quick little signal to start the BIOS operating system built into your motherboard. Maybe you just need a new switch as it could be shorting somewhere when you press it a certain way. You can remove the wires from the back of the switch and touch them together to see if the pc starts. If that is too complicated then i would suggest taking it to a store before any real damage is done.
1. Turn the computer on or Restart the computer 2. Start tapping the F8 key. The Windows Advanced Boot Options Menu appears. If you begin tapping the F8 key too soon, some computers display a "keyboard error" message. To resolve this, restart the computer and try again. 3. Ensure that the Safe mode option is selected, not Repair Your Computer 4. Press Enter. The computer then begins to start in Safe mode. 5. When you are finished with troubleshooting, close all programs and restart the computer as you normally would
If the computer boots into Safe Mode you can try disabling Startup Programs, one of these might be causing your computer to freeze. To do this follow these steps:
1 Press Start. Type msconfig into the search bar and press Enter. For XP, click on Run and type msconfig there.
restart the computer. before it starts windows on the bottom left of the screen it will say press f1 or f2 to setup. press it. go into the boot configuration and set your first boot device to cdrom. then press f10 to save. insert the xp disc and restart the computer. when it restarts it should say press any key to boot from cd. just press any key and it will start on its own.
hmm seems like your computers got a virus away this is how to solve it:
1. Locate you Windows XP CD and place it in your CD-ROM drive.
2. Restart your computer, or turn it off and then back on. How to fix NTDLR MISSING error.
When you computer restarts you should eventually see the words "Press
Any Key to enter Setup". If you do not see these words and it goes to
the screen that gives you the error message, you will have to change
your boot priority in your bios settings.
Changing boot device priority: A. When you see you’re the
first screen, the boot screen, press delete a few times until your
computer beeps. Pressing the delete key will bring your computer up
into the bios settings. The key you need to press may differ from
computer to computer. If the delete key doesn't work for you, contact
your computer manufacturer and ask them what key you need to press to
get into bios.
B. After you are in your bios settings you will
need to navigate to your boot settings. Depending on which type and
version of BIOS you have, this process may be different. Either way,
there should be a section called Boot or Boot Priority. Navigate to
that and make sure that your CD-ROM has top or first priority. After
you have don't that, save and exit (press F10).
4. Once you see the "Press Any Key to Enter Setup" message, go ahead and press any key.
5. This will start the Windows Setup Process; it will take it several minutes to load.
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
hi im wesley. ok to restore to factory settings go to your bios witch is when you boot up and press delete to enter setup thwn at the bottom of the screen it will say like F5 for default settings press that button and it will reset if it doesnt work open the computer up and take the power out and take the battery out for bout 10 minutes and then place it back in along with the power and it will reset. you might have to format your hard drive because it might be a virus that keeps rebooting your computer i had the same problem once.
