    Have you tried copying the I386 folder to the hard drive prior to installation?

    Is it displaying an error message?

Always test ram (use "memorytest86") as its a freebee and the test is exhaustive. better yet you can easily make a bootable CD thus no OS is loaded. always do this before an OS install/re-install.

as mentioned elsewhere in this thread if the OS fails to load more than likely its an obscure hardware issue. some of the anomalies I've found through the years...

ascertain that your video hardware "matches up" within the BIOS. if you have 2 CDROM drives set one set to Master (IDE) and disconnect any secondary drive. wierd thingees begin to happen on some systems if your boot drive is slave regarding an OS install.

Go to minimal ard ware. I have seen network cards, ram, modems,cdroms,extra hard drives, higher end video cards and miscelanious other hard ware cause it. If you are having this issue go down to minimun harware one cd, one hard drive,one stick of ram, just the on board components of *********** board. That should take care of it.

No power on will shutdown


Hello

First of all press ALT+CTRL+DEL and start Task Manager, there is probably some application (or other process) that is not reponding. You can kill them to let the shutdown continue, and know what is causing the problem and maybe find an update for it.

Also this means that your computer has not been rebooted properly since the installation of important system updates. If you have "Automatic Updates" scheduled on your machine, these updates could have downloaded and installed without your knowledge. To fix this issue, let the updates finish installing, reboot and then shut down your computer as normal.

Click "Start."

Click "Windows Update." Click "Install Updates" to begin the installation of any updates that have been downloaded to your Compaq Presario. When the "Restart Now" button becomes available, click it once. Your Compaq Presario will shut down Windows, finish installing the updates and then reboot your computer.

Click "Shut Down." Because the updates have finished installing and have been installed properly, your Compaq Presario will now shut down normally and will not immediately boot back up.

Computer begins to start up and then turns off after windows xp is displayed. Reformatted drive installed windows 2000, same thing happens


Hi,

The issue that you experience might be problem of your power supply please change the location or check the power supply of computer. If you shut down your Windows XP-based computer, your computer may restart instead of shutting down. The computer may also restart unexpectedly while you are using the computer to perform certain tasks. An error message may appear on a blue screen when the computer restarts.

For more information, please click the link below;

Moreover, check the motherboard, CMOS battery or SMPS, as that might be one of the reason. Any of such device not functioning properly may cause computer restarts automatically.

Infected pc boots up intermittently


Microsoft does not "shut down" computers. If the PC is not booting every time it is because of the viruses or the power supply. If you press the power button and nothing happens I suspect the power supply. If you see the start-up screen every time you press the power button, but the computer does not finish booting go ahead and install your legal copy of Windows and that will fix the problem. Make sure you have the drivers for your motherboard, you'll need them to install things like chipset, nic, video, and sound drivers.

Samsung v25 shutdown


hi dear

Do not complete the following procedure unless you are very familiar with internal computer hardware removal and installation. The hardware components in a computer are very sensitive to static electricity. For information about the correct handling of computer components, contact your computer manufacturer. 1. Shut down your computer, and then remove all the Peripheral Component Interconnect (PCI) devices. 2. Restart your computer. • If Windows starts successfully, shut down your computer, and then reinstall the PCI devices one at a time. Start Windows after the installation of each device. When you install a device that causes the issue that is described in the "Symptoms" section, remove that device, and then continue to install the other PCI devices. • If Windows does not start successfully, remove one or more of the memory modules that are installed in your computer. Leave sufficient RAM for your computer to start and run Windows XP.

Note Windows XP requires 128 megabytes (MB) RAM. The minimum is 64 MB and the maximum is 4 gigabytes (GB).

For example, if two 256-MB memory modules are installed in your computer, remove one of the memory modules. If Windows starts successfully, shut down the computer, and then reinstall the RAM modules one at a time. Start Windows after the installation of each RAM module. When you install a module that causes the issue that is described in the "Symptoms" section, remove that module, and then continue to install the other RAM modules. 3. Determine if the PCI devices in your computer are compatible with Windows XP. To do this, visit the following Microsoft Hardware Compatibility List (HCL) Web site: http://www.microsoft.com/whdc/hcl/default.mspx
