Question about Dell Dimension 3000 PC Desktop

Blue Screen of Death

My dell dimension 3000 recently got the microsoft security suite virus with a few others that I cant recognize. Now my computer freezes when starting up the computer, even in safe mode it starts to load and then stops and freezes about a quarter of the way through. I have tried starting the computer with the windows xp disc by going into BIOS and changing the boot up sequence to cd rom in front of hard drive C. After I "press any key to boot from disc" it goes to windows setup and begins to load everything then it stops and goes to the blue screen of death. Is there any way to fix this problem?

My computer is filled virus. how do i remove everything


If you can't use the internet on it, Get Microsoft Security Essentials using a different computer then with a USB stick put it on the infected computer and install it. This should clear a lot of the major viruses out. Next get Malware bytes anti-malware. This program deep cleans the computer. These two programs should clear the computers viruses.

Computer freezes uo, whether online on in windows


Hi,

The cause of this type of issue can be frustrating to locate but there are few steps to isolate the probable cause.

First you should check that the processor is not overheating due to dust buildup on the cooling fins.

Next you should remove and re-seat RAM. Run the memory diagnostic tool from Microsoft to detect a failing RAM.

The above tests if passed should assure that the hardware is OK.

Next, remove the Kaspersky Internet security and any other anti-virus software. Use Revo uninstaller.

Use the system without any security software and see if it works OK. If not, you may need to format the drive, re-install Windows and check step by step which software is causing the problem. I know that this is very time consuming but sometimes its the only choice.

I get blue screen of death on 5 of my 6 logins.


When the computer is booting up try to boot into safe mode and go into the device manager. To get there right click on my computer and select properties. In the device manager look for any devices that have any icons next to them and disable(unless it is video or something important) then restart the computer enable the device and update drivers. If this does not work let me know
