    Hi when i restart it it just starts as normal.

  • phoenixcrew Jan 18, 2008

    No it just switches off without any warning, I cantgo to control panel as there is no OS installed on it at the moment as i removed the hard drive to rescue files from it. I am now trying to re-install a OS but having no luck as it wont stay on long enough to install. It is not a problem with the HDD as i've tried a couple of others in it and still get the same result, nor is there a problem with the OS i'm installing as i've tried it with XP pro, XP home and also a version of linux all with the same result. Nor does it shut down at the same point of the install. Hope this info helps you help me. thanks Mick

    When your computer restarts, do you get any error message?

    Is there any STOP error message? If you cannot note the STOP Error are the steps to note the stop error number, get it and post it here....

    Right click on my computer---> properties----> Advanced TAB ---> click on settings under Startup & recovery---> under system faliure uncheck the option that says "Automatically restart" ...

    Now when you get a STOP error...your computer will not restart and it will give you a Stop Error number with some other information.....note it and post it here...will work on it and get you a resolution.

If this is a desktop: Did you check the power supply? try to replace it with a new one

Laptop: Try to run the machine without the battery plugged in....straight with the adapter....If the laptop still's a manufacturing defect which should be replaced by the OEM.

Webcam start

Have you tried looking along the 'F' keys for a secondary use with the Fn key. I had a similar problem and it turned out all I had to do was hold the Fn button down and then press the 'F' key with the webcam picture on it, this turned it on and it installed itself straight away.

Hope this helps

How do I access the 2nd memory module in a MID2020 laptop

There is usually a plastic cover piece for the memory sockets. Usually, you just have one screw to take out to access it. If you take it by any computer shop, or Best Buy, they will be glad to show you where it is.
