You may try disabling booting from cd/floppy, but if there isn't a boot record findable on the hard drive you may have to create a boot rescue disc or may even have to reinstall your operating system.

Dell pc makes loud clicking noise like machine gun


Something is jammed in one of the fans ???
(there are at least 2 = one at the back of the power supply = should be easy to see - and one inside on the CPU heatshnk (harder to get to)

Else its likley the Power supply or monitor is 'shorting out' internally ..

If it's just 'ticking' it's likly your hard drive going bad (unless, of course, you happen to have a CD/DVD disc inserted into the CD/DVD reader ...sometimes these 'tick' during power-up as the PC tries to boot from the disc :-) )

HP Pavilion a1410n Disk Boot failure


After pressing F1 confirm that the master drive is listed in the boot setup program.. If the drive is not listed confirm that the electrical connection from the new power supply is correctly connected to the drive. Failing to correctly connect the hard drive during power supply replacements is most likely the problem. Also confirm the SATA connections to the drive.

Confirm that the drive gets warm and a slight vibration when power is first turned on confirming the disc drive is spinning.

Hope this helps?

My acer aspire 3000 wont boot! i have the black screen. whhat should i do


Try taking out the battery not the CMOS battery power cord remove from input of laptop press the power button to discharge. Let sit for about 15 minutes. When that is complete replace the battery and place the power supply unit and power laptop back on this may do the trick. Now if that does not get it to boot then try the recovery disc option when inserting the restore disc in. Or if Windows disc do a repair. It will assist you will the boot fix. Let the software do its thing.
If that does not assist you then you may need to have the notebook serviced to see what the problem is. It can mean a board matter or if the machine does turn on and you hear fans going or a fan it may be the lamp in the screen has gone out. So many variables involved here that it would be wise to have it checked out by a professional before messing anymore with this Notebook.

My motherboard(ga-6cxc rev 2.0 motherboard) don't show any sign of booting but if i let some part lose it beeps(long) what should I do? even the keyboard don't light up(num lock...) and monitor...


Unplug all of your RAM, expansion cards and IDE/SATA devices. Leave only the processor and the CPU/heatsink plugged in, now try turning it on. If it boots, you should get a ram error, which is normal. If it doesn't boot, either the board, processor, or power supply is bad. Next, reinstall the RAM and start it up again. If it boots again, keep adding parts until you find the one that is causing the problem.

Hope this helps.

Gateway zx4800-02 shuts down after 4 or 5 minutes


overheating would be my first guess my next guess would be a bad power supply but unfortunately there are many possibilities:( you could try booting the machine from a disc and this at least would tell you whether the operating system was corrupted or the hardware because if you boot from a disc and it still shuts itself off then it is a hardware issue. if you want more information about how to boot from a disc just ask:)

Non-system disk or disk error replace and stricke any key when ready that which in my black screen,what can i do? thank you kind regards


sounds like your pc is trying to boot from a disc drive without an operating system installed on it. I sometimes get this with my toshiba 1.5G external. Try turning off any non-booting drive connected to the machine and try again. If you don't have any external device connected then your system disc is either corrupt or dead and needs replacing or the operating system reinstalling.

sounds like a hard disk issue try booting from the original s install disk . the see if you can reapir the installtion
if it still can recognise the disk you probably have a hard disk problem. Eithe buy or get a techical person to call out and check the hard disk for you.
