Question about Enlight EN- PM240162 *PRESCOTT MICRO ATX MINI TOWER BLACK SILVER SATA 300W 20PIN
I hope there is someone out there that can help me get my PC running.
Few months ago while i was busy downloading emails from the internet our area were having really bad power surges and since then my computer was having problems. I restarted it as soon as the power came back on but it just keeps restarting all the time without going into windows. I suspected the hard drive was corrupted and replaced it last week but Its still doing the same. Here it is.
The computer starts up, makes the one normal beep but as soon as its about the start calculating the RAM it just stops and restarts. I finally got it to enter Bios after several unsuccessful tries. The Bios is seeing the 512MB ram so I doubt it could be faulty.
Yesterday I could start the machine with the windows XP cd and it continues installing the DLL files etc. But as soon as the screen comes up saying Setup is loading windows it just stops and restarts again. After several restarts it will give me an error: something like the system has failed to boot several times...
I'm not an expert on computers etc but I do know pretty much and I know enough in Dos to sort out minor errors (if i could just get the pc to start up in dos) Pressing F8 on startup just gives me a blank screen with blinking cursor.
If there is more than one stick of RAM memory installed try removing each one in turn and start the computer. You may have one bad stick of memory.
