    Thanks but I have tried that including changing the laptop hard drive and still have the same problem.On the new hard drive it will load but when it tries to boot to Windows it starts all over again.

    When I start the computer I get an error message that a file is missing or corrupt[\windows\system32\config\system].Also I am hearing 3 beeps,1 long and 2 short and it is telling me that I can attempt to repair by using the original setup disk.When I try the original setup disk it tells me that Line 17647 of the INF file\i386\txt.setup.sif is invalid and setup cannot continue.

Sounds like you are having a system error issue of large proportions..did you format the new drive?

Monitor will not boot up is reading no input signal


So either the computer isn't generating a video signal, the cable isn't carrying the signal to the monitor, or else the monitor isn't capable of receiving a video signal.To test this, first try a video cable that you know is good, in case your cable is bad, If it works with the other cable, the problem was your original video cable. If it still doesn't work, put your original cable back, and hook another computer up to the monitor. If the monitor makes the same message, the problem is with the monitor. If the other computer works when connected to this monitor, your problem was that the original computer isn't booting (which could be due to several reasons I will list below), or the video adapter is broken.Possible reasons for the computer not booting: bad power supply, bad power button, bad hard drive, bad memory, bad motherboard component. If you determine that it isn't booting, unplug everything except the keyboard mouse monitor and power cord, to see if that makes a difference. If it boots after that, something you unplugged was causing the problem, plug them each back in one by one, rebooting in between, and when it stops booting properly, the last thing you plugged in is causing the problem.

EMachines t3626 shuts down at random


You may be dealing with bad or overheating with your processor or memory. If possible, try swapping out your memory chips to see if that does the trick. If not, you will have to try swapping out the processor (much less likely you'll be able to swing that).

Come on, boots up, then shuts down 5 - 10 minutes later.


check your power options make sure you don't have hibernation enabled, its in the system control panel. try booting from a linux live cd like Ubuntu which you can download for free. If it runs fine under linux, its a windows problem, if it keeps shutting down its a hardware problem. Could be bad ram, or CPU overheating.

Computer shutsdown unexpectedly


It sounds like it is overheating. Take the side off the case and see if your CPU fan works. Replace any fans that do not work or feel loose. And while you are at it, take a can of air and blow the dirt out of it.
Leaving it off overnight will not prevent it from overheating. A computer can overheat in a matter of seconds under the right circumstances.

Power goes off by itself, then boots up again


In computers, any number of problems can cause this - bad RAM, bad hard drive, fried voltage regulator(chip in a laptop), overheating cpu, overheating video card/gpu, there are even a few device drivers that can do this if they become corrupt. Usually, however, its not an issue with the power supply/power source.

I would try swapping the RAM with new(or known good) sticks. Also, make sure the system is clean, and no dust has built up in it, especially in/around the fans.

If the RAM swap is unsuccessful, and the system is clean, check and make sure the fans spin when the system is on.

Power down the system, disconnect the data and power cable from the Hard Drive, and turn the computer back on - you won't get into the OS, but you'll be able to determine if the issue occurs w/o the hard drive connected.

Ultimately, it may come down to a bad motherboard.

Compaq Presario R3140 Won't boot to


hmmm..not too good..sounds more like a hard drive issue. do you have the original install cd around? if so, put that in the cd player, and let it boot to that, or use F8, and do a safe mode operation.
