Computer seems to be restarting endlessly

Hi
I have been working on an old Pentium 4 1.8Ghz trying to get it operating. Things were going great a nd it was working wonderfully. Than I shut down the computer, tried to restart it but no luck - I couldnt even shut it down again using the power button - I had to remove the power cord from the computer. Now, everytime I connect the power cord back, the computer automatically starts, makes an endless ticking noise and nothing happens.
I disconnected all the hard drives and Cd Rom drives and the ticking continued. Only when I disconnected the cable of the power switch the ticking stopped but the computer still didnt work.

Help me!!!!!!!
How do I bring the computer back to life?

Thanks

That ticking noise is indicative of a failed hard drive. It sounds like the hard drive with your operating system has failed. If you have a backup plan, you have little to worry about...

Its seems any one of the key of your got stuck. So please check out your keyboard first.

If problem still not fixed then, try to re-install your RAM: remove the RAM clean its connection point to the board, and placed it agin gently. then try to re-boot.

Please let me know your feed back.

Thanks

When I boot up the computer a pop-up message says "oovoo has stopped working" and when I go to an internet site, a pop-up states "an error has occurred in the script on this page." ...


Hi,

Try reinstalling the newest version of oovoo from here:

http://www.oovoo.com/Download.aspx

After you reinstall, restart your PC/Computer and the problem should be gone.

If that doesn't work. Uninstall oovoo, reboot your computer, reinstall oovoo, reboot your pc again, and then it should work.

I hope this helps :) Best of luck!

Dimension 4600 won't reset to factory settings


These model dells came with a recovery cd rather than a partition. You will need to call dell and have them send you a recovery cd and then use that disc to restore your computer to factory defaults.

Computer will not boot, and makes error sounds


If you mean the computer is emitting a series of "beeps", then I would try reseating the memory modules. If that doesn't work, try using only one memory module at a time to determine if one might be defective.

Computer won't load anything


Possible RAM problem, also failing electrolytic capacitors in the power supply and/or motherboard can cause these problems.

Look for swollen/bulging/leaking electrolytic capacitors.

It might help if you mention make/model of the computer and the operating system you are using.

Fujitsu Sacaleo 600 boot problems

Your registry is needs fixing.
PC's today get cluttered with more damaging data, junk, and extra files than ever. This results in poor PC performance, frequent system crashes, slow Internet connections and worse. Fortunately there are some great software downloads that you can use to fix things.
You can do two things.
1. download a registry fixer, which would be difficult for you to do since your system cannot restart.
OR
2. Reinstall your operating system. restart your computer and while it is restarting hold down the delete button. It will bring up your bios. there you can then go into your c-mos setup and change your boot settings to BOOT FROM CD FIRST. THEN HARD DRIVE..
When you finish that, press F10 to exit and save settings.
Ten insert your windows disk and restart system. Reformat the entire drive. (NOTE: YOU WILL LOSE YOUR INFO). OR you can tell it to repair .
My advise to you is when it is finish repairin. backup all your important files and follow step 2 but this time you would want to reformat the Hard Drive. (that is to wipe it clean and reinstall windows fresh.

Please let me know if this help.
