General FAQ | 2008/03/17 What do I do if my system fails to boot-up or hangs at POST?
The first thing to do is to shut down the system and clear CMOS with a jumper. Then check all hardware devices systematically, including CPU, RAM, VGA, AGP and power supply. Check that your CPU, RAM and AGP are supported by your system (DDR and AGP support list is only available for XPC). If you are still unable to resolve this issue, please contact your local reseller/retailer (point of purchase) for more directions, and if necessary send it in for service.

Black screen green dots


What was the last thing you did on your computer before this happened?
Did you change any system settings in the BIOS?
Did you add new software? or update any software or drivers?
Did you add any new hardware?
Is your system BIOS infected with a virus?
Because it appears that your PC is hanging up during the Power-On-Self-Test [POST]

Here's what happens; when the power is turned on, the computer BIOS [Basic Input/Output System] runs a POST (Power-On Self-Test). It is a diagnostic testing sequence that the computer runs to determine if the hardware [like the mouse, keyboard, hard drive, etc.] is working properly.

If the necessary hardware is detected and found to be operating properly, the computer begins to boot; If the hardware is not detected or is not operating properly, the BIOS issues an error message.

The error message may be a text on the display screen and/or a series of coded beeps, depending on the nature of the problem.

The series or pattern of beeps may vary...they may be in a number of long or short beeps or a mixture of long and short beeps, or even one long continuous beep, depending on what type of BIOS is installed.

Since POST runs before the computer's video card is activated or the integrated graphic chip on the main board, it may not be possible to progress to the display screen.

So if an error is detected during the POST it will halt the boot process because the hardware is essential for the computer's functions.

How many beeps do you hear during the initial POST?

You may have a burned out video chip/card; or corrupt drivers; or even an IRQ [Interrupt Request] conflict.

Tip

Computer beeps


If you try to power on your computer and nothing happens but a bunch of beeps there is something you can do. The beeps actually mean something. To make sure you can hear the beeps check in the bios options. If there is an option for a silent boot you won't hear any beeps. If you hear one beep every time your computer starts then you don't have to worry about this.

If you want to check this setting refer to my other tip on how to enter bios and change boot settings.

If you try to boot your computer and nothing shows up on your monitor do these steps first.
1-Check all your cables in the back of the computer.
2-check your power source and power cord to the monitor
3-try another monitor if possible
4-If on a power bar try to turn off the power bar and reset the breaker

If you try to boot your computer and nothing happens and you hear beeps look at this website. The beeps you hear are actually telling you what is wrong. Look at the website by clocking on the link below and click on the computer beep codes link. If you want to scroll down past the link it will show you bios codes to enter the bios in your computer

Disconnect the drive and try to boot to the BIOS (usually with F1, F2 or Delete key). If that doesn't work, try removing all cards from the computer (except a video card if the video port is not on the motherboard). If you can boot this way, try inserting back any removed cards to see what hangs it. Do you hear any beeps when the computer is booting (beep codes)?

I have a beeping noise on my computer.


Beeping noises are very common. The problem is that beeping is so common that it could really be any number of things. Is the beep happening when you try to turn the computer on? Does it get all the way to Windows? How many beeps, short or long? Please be as descriptive as possible.

Computer does not fire up. I do have steady green light on power supply. All motherboard connections appear to be tight.I have come home before to a beeping noise in the past. After resetting the machine...


That beeping noise may be due to over heating.
Most machines today have a temperature setting that will turn the machine off once the temperature reaches a certain point.
Safety feature to avoid damaging your cpu and components.
The shut down and restarting allows the CPU to cool down briefly.
Thus allowing you to start the machine again. Usually it will shut down again once the temperature threshold is again reached.
Good test is let the machine sit for 30 min. If it immediately starts up and shuts down a few minutes later. Heat build is usually the problem.

Typically this is due to heat sink or Fan on the computer CPU.
Check to be sure both are connected to the CPU and functioning.
If you have a fan on top of the heat sink above the CPU. Make sure it is working correctly. Dust build up over time will eventually kill the fan bearings or reduce airflow. Heat sink can and will become clogged with dust also. Replacement fans are easy to find. Heat sinks are even easier to clean.
Depending on your machine and CPU position replacing the fan can be a challenge. But can be done in a few minutes with minimum tools.

Each bios has different post codes and it is difficult to tell what is happening with out knowing the bios of your particular machine. Listen for the beeps and check your computer manual.
You can also google for this. Here is a web site that lists a few bios P.O.S.T codes.
http://www.computerhope.com/beep.htm
Once you know the beep sequence you can look it up. Usually points to the problem and you can go from there.

Good luck!

Computer goes on but does not boot


When you start up the PC, do you get any kind of beep sound? If not, I would reckon the RAM modules are faulty and would need to be replaced first. That is the usual cause for this kind of issue. Also when replacing the modules, make sure they are the type supported by your motherboard, ie DDR, DDR2, etc. You will have to consult your m/b manual for this..

If the problem is not with the RAM, ie you hear a beep, but nothing else, I would guess that the MBR of your operating system is dysfunctional, which would mean that you would have to reinstall the operating system.

Hope that helps...

Cheers!
