    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.

  • Aubrey Ferrie Feb 17, 2008

    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.

    if you are not getting power to m/b then none of the other issues will be relevant..

    coolguy..those are great solutions, IF the system recovery panel opens. Not sure that's the case here.

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.

Hello Toshiba satellite p35-s6053 shuts down unexpectedly. can u give me some possible solutions


Assuming the battery isn't failing or the power supply isn't bad, the laptops cooling system may be clogged with dust causing overheating and sudden shutdown to prevent damage to the CPU. You may be able to blast the dust out with compressed air but the chunks of dust could actually block up the fan, keeping it from spinning, and make things worse! Best solution is disassembly of the laptop to get better access and do a complete cleaning..

I have a IQ816. Purchased recovery discs from HP and reinstalled Windows. Had problems from beginning and noticed that files were being corrupted. MRI diagnostic indicated faulty hard drive. Replaced...


all in one, are no fun to fix. a real DT is vastly more easy
and standardized ... ATX , for example.
cute sure, but hard to work on,
there are no schematics, they are secret. (called proprietary)
last thing HP wants is illegall clones, no?
why not get the full HP.com service manual.
it tells you the PSU voltages. to check.
all must be good.
what if the CD drive is bad, you will get CRC errors reading it.
why not boot to a USB stick
put any live OS on the USB stick. linux or windows 8 or 10 PE, boot disk.
then boot to the stick , omg the computer is ok. just a dead CD drive.

that be like 1st off the bat
all shops keep boot USB sticks, all do.. or diagnosis goes , to H3LL..
BIOS screens all look good,. bios memory check passes.
Bios, shows memory size matches whats there.
try running one memory stick at a time.?
it 2 memory sticks? try both1 at a time.
make sure CPU is not overheating, and fans ok.

if say the OS boot sticks (way windows 8 PE live works)
or any do and a new HDD will not load any OS.
then the SATA port must be dead.


if all above checks out, the PSU is toast.
Power supply unit.

My acer laptop aspire 4730z just shuts down with no apparent reason..i just cant get rid of it..what seems to be the problem!?


It may be due to overheating. Make sure all air vents are clear of dust. Check that the internal fan is working - usually located under the keyboard. The fan should usually ony come on intermittently, first when you boot up, then intermittently in Windows when the processor is working hard. If the fan is on all the time and especially if it is running fast then your processor is overheating.

If you go into the bios setup and the laptop resets within a few minutes with the fan running fast then you have a definite processor overheating problem. This may be a faulty processor or a fault on the motherboard.

It keep restarting constantly


Is the laptop getting very hot? Rebooting is usually caused by overheating. Try blowing a hairdrier set to cold air into the intake before booting up (Don't blow it onto a hot laptop, wait till it cools a little). If this cures the problem even for a little while, it would confirm the overheating problem.

The next stage is to dismantle (or get someone who is competent) to dismantle the laptop and clean out the CPU fan and intake / radiator matrix. Shoud be done periodically anyway.

If that cures the fault, then I'd suggest buying a USB cooling pad.

Fujitsu Amilo Pro V2055. Starts boot, performs RAM check, etc. then displays "cant find operating system". Checked that HDD is ok by reading it using another computer. Tried hard disk utility...


This usually means 1 of a few things..
1. Your Harddrive is bad
2. You got a boot sector virus, and your boot ini file is so badly infected, your computer can't find the boot file and you need to format your c:\ or d:\ drive....if you can get to your CMD window (command) but the way you bring it up is from CMD in start/run/CMD but since you can't even boot to your desktop...then you can choose a few options..

IF you have your your Windows Xp, or Windows Vista or Window 7 (depending on how you purchased your system, I'm thinking XP...since with Vista and Windows 7 you can reload to factory settings)

If you do have the disk....then you WILL have to reload your Operating System ....IF your harddrive isn't bad (have bad sectors or clusters) or is just "old" or was bumped severely and there's a dent on your harddrive preventing your boot ini file from being found...

There are so many things that could be wrong with it....Send me more infomation....
It's definitely NOT your motherboard...it's a harddrive issue...whether from a virus (which there are many out there that could infect or even rename your boot file....or your harddrive is BAD..
Either way...let me know and I can help you further!!!

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.

PC keeps on restarting


Power supply can be your issue , when windows boots from CD it a mear dos-mode boot , If it was motherbaord problem it wouldn't boot at all . If you move power supply to test the motherboard issue just make sure it enough power to boot the other motherboard ( some pwer supplies can boot all motherboards )

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.
