Hp xw 6000, keeps shuuting down during initial boot up.
My Hp xw6000 keeps shutting down during its boot up. I can here the scussi drive drivers loading then the system just shuts down. If I imeadiately restart, using normal windows, the pc boots up normally and runs until operator requests shut down. Have installed new PSU but problem still persists. Pc not connected to internet, used for digital image work. I have ran a virus check through system and come back totally clean.
Could it be a bios problem.

Reseat ram if not i'd say to take 1 stick of ram at a time and start the computer with such might be a ram issue or run memtest 1.7 which can be downloaded here http://www.memtest86.com/ boot to cd once downloaded and burned to test ram

After searching for about an hour for a driver for my HP xw6000, I took a shot in the dark and tried a Dell Driver. Guess what, it worked. Here is the link http://ftp.us.dell.com/network/R151327.exe. Hope this helped.
During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS you can load failsafe defaultsor load optimized defaults ,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart or During the boot process tap thef8 button three times this will boot into safe mode where the only things working will be your mouse and keyboard enabling you to attempt to repair your computer Also you might try Turn Off the computer, now as soon as you hit the power button, keep on holding "Alt" key & keep on tapping "F10 key,ie: Alt+F10, it will open the recovery console ,select full factory restore and follow on screen instruction. (Note:this will erase all datas on the computer) hope this helps
You can try to do a Power drain of the system ie disconnect all the cables from the pc and press and hold the power button of the tower for 30 to 40 sec. than reconnect only the keyboard the mouse and the monitor and turn it on. try to enter the BIOS page ( keep on tabbing the F10 key to enter BIOS is Windows Vista during the start up and F1 in Windows XP) and from their you can run a Smart test on the Hard drive. You can also try to boot the Pc to the safe mode and check whether the windows loads or not. From the Advanced boot option try to do a Start up repair.
If you want to get it back to the original settings without the latest patches, turn on the computer and hit <Ctrl> and <F11> together when the blue bar displays with www.dell.com during the boot sequence. If you miss the timing, let the computer boot-up then shut down again and retry. This will restore from a compressed partition on your hard drive. Thus anything you have added (programs/files) will disappear. Do not power down during the Restore sequence or you could end up with an unusable machine.
Use the Windows System Restore if you just have a bad driver.
I agree a clean install is always the better, fresh start J
OK it sounds like missing drivers, what you have to do is create a new installation CD that will load the drivers for your laptop as it boots. I haven’t try this method with windows 7, but I know it works well with Windows XP. Try and create a new Windows XP CD with the drivers see: http://unattended.msfn.org/unattended.xp/view/web/35/
The start a new installation with this Windows XP CD and reformat you computer, after that you can do a new upgrade to windows 7
It could be a virus that your anti viral software isn't picking up. you could try to change your settings so that you boot from a disk and your drives are set as slaves( by changing the jumpers on the back of the drive, all info on a little sticker) and run an updated anti virus program. Also, if it turns out your drives are not going to play and you have a back up of your system, format the drive and start over. hope this helps, if not, sorry ;)
go into systen bios and set the default leave it there for a good duration doing notheing. see if the machine dies if not save the setting and reinstall using the Boot from CD.
DO not Boot from HD
try a different CD drive unit too.
If you can boot into safe mode, then once in safe mode open system restore and then restore to a couple days prior to the install of the hp drivers. This should fix the problem. If you need to know how to get into system restore let me know your operating system (Vista or XP)
