If the laptop posts

(power on self test) and you see stuff on the screen, no matter how short , do the following: (this checks for a software problem)

  • when booting up press F8 and when you get to the menu, boot up into safe mode, then restore the pc back to a date before you had the problem, and/or remove any program you installed prior to you having the problem, if that don't work
  • Try a bootable anti virus disc use it to check for any viruses , if not
  • try a recovery disc, or operating system disc ,
  • both disc's will try to access the hard drive.
  • if they do not work, (nothing has changed) nothing comes on the screen.

laptop does not post:
(then it is a hardware problem)
  • check battery is seated correctly and that the power pack is functioning,if the battery has gone flat and the power pack is not working ,the laptop will not start.
  • Remove any hardware you may have installed prior to you having the problem.
  • remove the screw(s) holding the cover plate on the back of the laptop where the ram lives remove the memory sticks,
  • clean the gold edges both sides, with rubbing alcohol or a pencil eraser, and re-insert them, (not an ink eraser as it will do damage)
  • swap them around if you have more than one, try one at a time.
  • if you only have one, borrow one from a friend or try the ram in your friends laptop ,if that's possible,
  • or take the ram to your local pc shop and ask them to check it for you (they may do that for you)
  • if you can establish that the ram and power pack is ok, and anti virus and recovery /system disc's do not work, then it is most likely, that the motherboard has failed .
  • Generally a dead hard drive would not stop the laptop from posting.
good luck with that and let me know how you get on.

Is it plugged in ?
Is the wall switch turned on ?
Is your power supply functional ?
If no lights or fans look at the power supply.
Oh Yes, a small switch near the power cord at the back of the computer, is it on ?
Do you have a reset switch, turn off all power and press the reset switch then try again ?
For some strange reason the reset function gets mucked up.
Like a bleeder resister or pullup resister is not doing its job.

The computer seems to overheat when performing multiple tasks and the monitor then freezes. The computer has to be switched off and on again to continue.


95% sure the computer did not overheat, if it did overheat it will shut down by itself to prevent itself from overheat damage. Crashes or computer freeze could result in lagging due to unpowered computer component. When multitrask as you said, some newer software such as games, burners, media players use alot of memory and cpu power and for that sake the cpu will take more time to process these instruction from the software, Most likely with a optiplex 740 you are dealing with dual core, and the promblem can be associated with your memories. Multitasking is memorie hungry. So you may want to upgrade your memories, if not considering purchasing a more powerful computer to handle those task you are using. Also as a advice you may want to defrag your harddrive to make seeking speed faster.

There are several reason for this issue.
1. Power switch on CPU(Tower) might get locked while pressing.
2. SMPS might be old one.

1. Need to check the Power switch with the help of Multimeter.
2. Need to change the SMPS and check whether it is working.

My Ensoniq VFX synthesizer freezes after keyboard calibration


incompatible driver conflict...unhook the device from the computer and reboot without it...see if the system runs normal....if it does then the equipment you are installing creates a conflict with the equipment already installed...that means you cant use it in that system...no way to bypass...it must be older then the computer....just a guess...

Computer freezing


The shutting down as well as the freezing issue could have been caused by any one or all of the hardware you replaced.......the trick is to change one thing at a time to help narrow it down

Assuming the Ram/HD/PS are new and ok I would look at overheating problems.... is the computer dusty ...look at the Heatsink on the CPU is it clogged with dust and are all the fans working ......use an Air compressor or a can of air from a computer shop to blow the dust out....

Another reason could be a Virus or spyware/malware ....run a full Antivirus/Spyware check ........

Equium M40X freezes


Hi, it seems your experiencing a overheat issue. At least one fan inside your PC has stopped working. The PC monitors internal heat, when the PC reaches a certain temperature it will shut down & or freeze. Chances are it's the CPU fan.

Boot the computer into safe mode. Do this by hitting F8 repeatedly as the computer boots up, and when you see the menu, select "Safe Mode".

Once windows is up, uninstall AOL via Control Panel->Add Remove Programs.

Hopefully now when you reboot again your computer will boot up normally and won't crash. Then you can try and reinstall the earlier working version of AOL.

Freezing


Firstly i would suggest unindtalling the programme and installing again. To give a clue as to what the problem is, go to Control Panel>Performance & Maintanence>Administrative Tools>Event Viewer. On the left hand side, look down the list to Applcations and click on it; and look at the dates when you ran the programme to give a clue as to the fault.
