My computer dies at random, and sometimes fails to even start.


Test your PSU power supply unit or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty



One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle of restarting or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive



Test all leads that attach to your hard drive power and data cables IDE SATA

the leads from your MOTHERBOARD TO YOUR HARD DRIVE make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty


make sure all leads that are attached to your dvd\cd floppy drives have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty


computers need power and data to travel through every working device to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error


even something as small as a faulty electrical or fan lead can cause you problems



motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive if its a flat ribbon 40 pin type IDE replace it this will be the first to fail



check all electrical power input and extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd floppy drives need to have current go through make sure these drives are working



also check the Cmos battery and computer RAM modules make sure they are securely seated with no dust built up or in the sockets on some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in


check you CPU central processing unit make sure its securely seated and has thermal paste it might be getting to hot the thermal paste will help disperse the heat

Thermal compound is a sticky paste that is placed directly onto the CPU.


Allowing for a more direct heat transfer between the CPU and HEAT SINK and preventing air gaps from forming between the CPU and heat sink.

hope this helps

Primary slave drive fails


Go into the BIOS and make sure you are trying to boot from the Primary Master Drive first. If not, move the Master Drive to the 1st boot position.

If the above fails, you could just remove the power cord, remove the case and notice how the two drives are connected and remember it. There will be one cable that provides power to the drive from the power supply on each drive. Also, there might be one cable that connects both drive, or there might be one in each drive, etc. I would disconnect the power and cable on one of the drives and try rebooting. If it fails and you have one cable that connects both drives, try the other cable connection and reboot. If it still fails, then I would try doing the same thing with the other drive.

If all the above fails and your system has the IDE (whereas the cable has about a 2 inch end with about 20 holes that plug into the 20 pins on the hard drive) interface, remove the drive to check and see if the little pin on there along is set to Primary, Master or Cable Select. Normally on a two drive system they will be set to CS for Cable Select and the IDE Cable based on how it is plugged into the drives determines which is Master and Slave, but older systems might have the Master and Slave setup.

F7 hard drive problem the PC has two 360 gig hard drives. Which one is the primary? Will a WD serial # WCAV 5463220018 3.5 inch SATA hard drive 1000 Gbyte be compatible with my PC?


If your PC has SATA connections yes you can use SATA, but not a SATA 2.5 which only fits a laptop! When you use 2 drives one must be set by jumpers on rear of drive to master..... the slave drive (2nd hard drive) must also be set to slave by same jumpers.
