Re: Constant beeping and will not re-boot

Question- the beeping, is it short (1 second beeps) or long (2 or more seconds) and how many before it stops? or doesn't it? does it have any rhythm? The beeps correlate to some hardware problem, if you want to check the beeps yourself, just google "Bios beeps" and it will bring up a table of what the beeps mean.

No boot

Turn on a working computer with its keyboard plugged in and test if the keyboard is working properly.

If it is, shut down that computer, unplug the keyboard and plug it into the system that is suffering from the missing "NTOSKRNL.EXE" file.

Turn on the system to see if the replaced keyboard resolves the problem.
Press the "F8" key right after the system initializes the boot sequence and before the Windows logo shows up to bring up a menu of boot options.

Choose the "Last Known Good Configuration" option with the arrow keys and press the "Enter" key.
Insert your Microsoft Windows installation disc.

Restart the computer and press the "R" key on your keyboard once you reach the "Microsoft Setup" menu.

Choose the operating system that you wish to repair, type in your admin password when prompted and press the "Enter" key.
Type "bootcfg /rebuild" and press the "Enter" key to rebuild the Windows "boot.ini" file, which may also resolve the issue.

Type "chkdsk /r" and press the "Enter" key to scan the entire hard disk for errors.
Type "exit" and press the "Enter" key to exit the "Recovery Console."

Restart your computer and see if Windows boots properly.

PC was booting to HP screen with constant beep. Keyboard nonfunctional. Tried different keyboard / mouse and no keyboard mouse with same problem. Pulled battery to reset cmos, now system powers up for 1...

If the computer is not reaching the BIOS screen one of the components is most likely faulty. I strongly suspect that it is either the Motherboard or the CPU. If you have made sure the CPU is seated correctly you may need to try alternate motherboards or try the CPU in an alternate computer/Visa-Versa. Hope this helps you troubleshoot and good luck.

The blue screen that you couldn't read the words on is called "the blue screen of death"..
If you're already stuck, no one will probably be able to lead you through this. Your best hope is that you have some kind of warranty still available that may cover it.... Otherwise, you're gonna need to call around for someone to try to repair it. Pretty much give them what you wrote as your question, word for word, and they should know if they can help. Chances of ever using it again are about 50-50. .. Sorry - good luck.

I get a blue screen that says my computer was shut down to protect from crashing, and it says it dumped my memory

I recently saw a very tricky virus that made it look like my computer was getting blue screen of death. It was acutaly a virus that had replaced my screen saver. They had even faked the screens that made it look like it was rebooting. I had also been locked out of the screen saver functions so I couldn't turn it off.

I booted in safe mode and removed the current screen saver.
I also ran a full virus scan.

Blue screens are normally caused by corrpted system files or faulty hardware.
But I'd do the screen saver test first.

How do i start my gateway computer in safe mode

To get any comp into safe mode, when you turn the computer on, just keep pressing the F8 key, dont worry about beeps or errors and you might even get a keyboard error message its all good,

This will take you to a menu with the boot options and safe mode will be at the top

Hope that helps
