Question about Carrera Computers & Internet

1 Answer

My computer fails to "fire-up" without pressing the re-boot button. It gets as far as Windows desktop and sometimes freezes or just turns off before reaching desktop. One or two reboots and it runs fine. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks. Stan

How do I correct the problem code C 0000001 on Windows 8 operating system


Solve Error Code 0xc0000001 in Winodws 8 Team Windows 8



Windows 8 Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) or Error Code: 0xc0000001 sometime occurs without any specific issue. You can't be sure what actually caused it. Be it a system issue or some driver problem, you may end up seeing this screen when you restart your computer.



To solve this blue screen error in windows 8, turn off your computer and when you power it up again, immediately press SHIFT + F8 key you will be resented with following screen:



Click on "See advanced repair options" and from the next screen, choose "Troubleshoot":



On the next screen, choose "Advanced Options"



In Advanced Options, choose "Windows Startup Settings"



There you will find a button "Restart". Click on this button and allow the wizard to complete all the steps. Note that it will repair your computer without making any changes to it. Once the process is completed, your computer will automatically restart and you should be able to boot windows now.



Still facing same error?

If you have followed all the above mentioned steps but got no luck in booting up your windows then probably your cause of the error is more solid and cannot be restored with mere settings reset. But don't worry, it can still be solved using windows recovery options. For this you should have a recovery/installation disc or USB Flash Drive.

How do you know when the power supply is failing?


Actually its not the matter with the Power Supply,but with the CPU Cabinet Power Button.I recommend that you should replace the Cabinet.It will surely help,and for the freezing problem it's your Hard Drive problem,you can also try re installing Windows...!!
But for the Power Button problem you should definitely replace the cabinet

My computer fails to boot several times and when it does finally get to the desktop, it freezes and then goes off into power saver mode. how do I fix that?


Try running the Check Disk Utility.

To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc ora operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot fromit. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with whiteletters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice thepercentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run tocompletion. Then reboot machine.

If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows.Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents,music, pictures, videos or programs.

In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair whenthe options appear.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recoveryconsole and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.

My Dell Dimension begins to boot then sits there as if asleep


It sounds like it's probably the power supply. Computers require more power to boot up than they do to keep running, so if it's fine once it gets going, the power supply may just be dying. If you have a multimeter and know what you're doing, you can test the power supply connectors to see if any of them (especially the ones leading to the motherboard) are not giving the proper voltages.

How old is the computer?

Computer well not boot


The computer may have done a routine software update that automatically reboots the PC when complete. HP is known for this. If it fires up when you turn it on, no worries. If its DOA then thats another issue. Best regards.

I just installed xp pro and it keeps freezing


To get into the Windows 2000 / XP Safe mode, as the computer is booting press and hold your "F8 Key" which should bring up the "Windows Advanced Options Menu" as shown below. Use your arrow keys to move to "Safe Mode" and press your Enter key.
Note: With some computers if you press and hold a key as the computer is booting you will get a stuck key message. If this occurs, instead of pressing and holding the "F8 key", tap the "F8 key" continuously until you get the startup menu.
Trouble Getting into Windows 2000 or Windows XP Safe mode - If after several attempts you are unable to get into Windows 2000 or Windows XP Safe Mode as the computer is booting into Windows, turn off your computer. When the computer is turned on the next time Windows should notice that the computer did not successfully boot and give you the Safe Mode screen.

I would suggest that you run only one stick of Ram at a time to determine if they are the problem.. Also these CPU's had heat problems that damaged the cpu. This also causes freezing. I would consider resetting the CPU and the heat sink, and case fans are clean and working.
