E-Machine constant reboot

I know someone who has an e-machine T 2958 that reboots constantly and the error message that comes up indicates that there was a hardware change but nothign was changed.
When I try to start in safe mode it does the same thing.
Any thoughts?
Thanks.

I can speculate on a lot of things but the error message (specifically) gives me a place to start that might be in your interest.
Otherwise just reformat and start over (painful). Also...fyi...a lot of "emachines" have problems. I have replaced motherboards at the ratio of 5 to 1 and I fix machines as a part time exercise. Hope this helps....Tango.

My w3107 machine tower just beeps repeatedly when you turn it on and the hp vp17 monitor just says no input signal. Any ideas on how to fix it before my husband throws it out the window?????


Constant beeping when you turn a computer on is an indication that you have a RAM memory error. To confirm this, open the tower (after unplugging the unit and pressing and holding the power button in for 10 seconds to confirm there's no charge left). Locate the sticks of RAM memory and remove 1. Then plug the unit back in and reboot. In most cases, the beeping will go away and the machine will boot up. This doesn't usually mean you have a bad RAM memory module, just a bad "bank" on the motherboard. If you like the machine, and removing the RAM works for you, you can either run minus the stick of RAM (the machine will be slower) or do a motherboard upgrade. You can usually get a good motherboard + CPU upgrade in the $90 range. Choose a motherboard that will accommodate the existing RAM memory to keep the project cost effective.

PC startup problems (constant reboot)


PC won't start in PE environment you say? The PC just constantly reboots you say? Swap out the memory! Or at least unseat 'em one @ a time

Open the machine - remove everything but the mouse and key board and one stick of ram- check the connections to the hdd while you're in there.
Reboot the machine - once it hints at getting going after you turn it on - start tapping the delete button -until you get to the BIOS - find the SET TO DEFAULT - there is only one -- it will set you back to default and let you boot up. Once this happens - reboot the machine - if it STILL has trouble - reboot it again and tap F-8 until you get to safe mode - once in safe mode it should give you an error message - copy that down and come back. To get faster answers and better service ask for premium service and ask for me. Thanks e2b512b.jpg

I need to know the reboot menu on the t1090 thamks


What OS is installed?
A lot of Windows machines will let you into the boot menu by tapping F12 continuously when you restart the unit.
Tapping F8 accomplishes the same thing on some machines.
Check this thread as well, it may assist:

Your description of the problem isn't very specific- ie: Do you get a specific error message when booting the machine?

REBOOTING PROBLEM ACER ASPIRE T135


Having a constant reboot means u are getting a type of system error. A easy way to stop it is to right click on My computer click Properties, then go to Advanced system settings, and then click settings under startup and recovery. There about halfways down u will se a dab called automatic restart. Uncheck it, and your pc will not restart. Then click start, click run type cmd (open command prompt)
then type: chkdsk /f
then it will ask u something, type Y and close that window. then restart your computer, and it will check your harddrive. Let it do a scan.

good luck

Dell Precision 490 constant reboot after ghost image completed


Hello-

I figured out how to ghost a Dell Precision 490 with a 32 bit Windows XP Image! Like you I had the same problem where it would constantly reboot after I imaged it with an existing 490 image. The answer is actually very simple. Boot up your Precision 490 and hit F2 to enter the bios. Select Drives and then SATA Operation, change it to "Raid Autodetect / ATA". Reboot the 490 and re image the machine, it will now work!

Computer won't reboot


Check your BIOS settings, specifically the diskette drive setting. Next, check the cabling to the drive itself. Your problem may have nothing to do with the diskette drive, but check it out. Next, have someone download hard drive diagnostics for the brand of drive in the machine. You could have errors on the drive, and a diagnostic program may locate, repair them. The startup disks, these do a full system restore, reinstall of the operating system? The machine will boot from the first startup disk and begin the reload process?
