I have also used memtest, although it is handy, i find it quite un-reliable in any systems using DDR-2.. i have had completely dead sticks of DDR-2 ram that memtest has said are fine.. you need to work on a process of elimination, if different ram still has the same problem, go on to the next possible cause

My desktop frequantaly booting what can i do


When you say frequently rebooting; Is it randomly rebooting without warning? Do you get a BSOD (Blue Screen of Death) error message? Or does the PC just reboot without any error's other than windows was not shutdown properly?

MOST random reboot issues are caused by Power issues;

-Failing Power Supply
-Blown Capacitors on the motherboard
-Insufficient power to run the system.

These would be a good place to start to troubleshoot if you do not get a Blue Screen Error Message.

-Failing Hard Drive can cause this issue as well but is usually acompanied by a Blue Screen Error of sorts.

-Failing RAM again usually accompanied by a Blue Screen Error.

You can test for failing hardware, by using Hiren's Boot Disk for diagnostic tests on your Hard Drive or Ram.

Hiren's Boot CD 15.2 - http://www.hirensbootcd.org/files/Hirens.BootCD.15.2.zip

You will want to run memtest X86 to test the Ram or Hitachi's Drive Fitness Test or SeaTools to test your hard drive.

This BootCD is not for the typical end user whom may not know there way around the features and options this Tech CD provides.

You will want to burn the Hirens Boot.ISO file to a CD (Burn Image Option) using any of your favorite flavors of burn software.

Hope this helps.

You can also download these diagnostic test individually such as memtest x86 and Hitachi's DFT or SeaTools independently from the Boot CD just by doing a google search. This might be the easier way to perform these tests for people who aren't very savvy with boot CD's.

You press the Power On button. This in turn presses against the Power On switch,

http://www.directron.com/atxswitch.html

Closing the Power On switch, (Pressing the Power On button), activates the Soft Power On feature of the Power Supply.

The Power Supply comes on.
The first chipset to receive power is the BIOS chipset.

The BIOS program looks to see what devices are installed, does a Ram Memory count, turns the Processor on, and hands the computer over to the Operating System. (Windows)

BIOS will come up even with the Processor not installed. Does need the Ram Memory, though.

Post back what you mean by, "I have checked HDs...."

Do you have more than one harddrive in a RAID configuration?

Have you used a program like Memtest to check the Ram Memory?
(Sometimes it's as simple as cleaning the contact pins, on the Ram Memory modules, with a pencil eraser. Doesn't take much corrosion to make a bad contact )

Replaced the CMOS battery? Yes, sounds inane, but that watch style battery can mess up a lot of things.

ASUS P4C800-E Deluxe Motherboard chipset gets installed after a new installation of Win XP then the mouse immediately dies and eventually the monitor will only show the bios screen or startup screen. No XP...


I would try to determine the source of the problem first. It could be the software (Bad chip set drivers, bad Windows installation disk, etc). It also could be the hardware (Bad motherboard, power supply, etc)

The easiest, in my opinion, way to test all your hardware at ones is booting your PC from a life CD Linux. It could be Ubuntu live CD or USB: http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/download.
Some people like Knoppix : http://www.knopper.net/knoppix/index-en.html
In addition both of them have Memtest as one of the boot option. With the Memtest you can test your RAM and CPU as well. If it's ok you can boot to the GUI and check the rest of it.

I hope this will give some idea on the troubleshooting approch

Gigabyte GA880GMUD2H with Corsair CMX4GX3M2A1600C9 Ram when switched on 4 long beeps pause 4 long beeps etc etc no video no USB power no keyboard or HDD activity


These beeps are for graphics card error or, in case of an external one, not inserted properly. You don't clarify what vga do you use so in case of an external check the potitioning. I suggest you all the checks to be done without hard disk connected. Check that the bios boots normally and you have video signal and after this plug the hard disk.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.

Sir i have dell GX280 system 3.0 GHz optiplex. 1gb ddr2 ram with 80gb sata hard drive. Sir, my problem is this first i brought a system it runs fine but sometimes a day it hangs up. i return this...


Plz check your memory with memtest. It can be downloaded from http://www.memtest.org/download/4.10/memtest86+-4.10.iso.zip .
Unzip the downloaded file and burn the ISO file to a CD and boot your system from the CD. It will check the memory of your system and it will indicate any error replace the memory.
Also check your memory slot is clean .. you can clean your system memory slot using a anti-static brush (you can use a tooth brush if anti-static is not available) and IPA

Recently i bought msi motherboard and um um havin aproblem that it is hanging if i use more software,or play games ....it just stucks stilled screen and um just restarting. um havin 2gb ddr2 ram...


Those are the hardest problems to troubleshoot the only way to do it is the first run a diagnostic on the memory and hard drive using a DOS utility. Test the memory with a software called Memtest and the Hard drive with the manufacturer software, you can get them on a boot cd called UBCD (Ultimate boot cd) that you can get here.

UBCD (for memtest let it go for a couple of loops, it can take quite a while depending on your configuration)

After that if all tested good the rest of the parts like Power Supply, Motherboard and graphic card you have to basically try another one to test them. Unless you have a power supply tester to test the power supply.

My HP dv5000 laptop has AMI BIOS beep code - 4 beeps


It sounds like either RAM or VIDEO problem to me. (I can't remember the specific beep sequence for AMI bios errors).

Hard to diagnose in Laptops.... if it was a desktop you can just start swapping out the RAM DIMMS..... are you techo enough to check whether you have 1 or 2 RAM cards installed? If 2 then run it with each card in turn to see if it boots (indicating 1 faulty RAM stick). If only 1 then try running MEMTEST on it to see if any errors. (I like HIRENS if you have it... I think it usually has latest MEMTEST on it).

If your cards all pass then its very likely a video problem. If its onboard video with no expansion slot (likely in a laptop) then you may be buggered.

Let me know if you need a hand doing any of the above.
