My desktop frequantaly booting what can i do


When you say frequently rebooting; Is it randomly rebooting without warning? Do you get a BSOD (Blue Screen of Death) error message? Or does the PC just reboot without any error's other than windows was not shutdown properly?

MOST random reboot issues are caused by Power issues;

-Failing Power Supply
-Blown Capacitors on the motherboard
-Insufficient power to run the system.

These would be a good place to start to troubleshoot if you do not get a Blue Screen Error Message.

-Failing Hard Drive can cause this issue as well but is usually acompanied by a Blue Screen Error of sorts.

-Failing RAM again usually accompanied by a Blue Screen Error.

You can test for failing hardware, by using Hiren's Boot Disk for diagnostic tests on your Hard Drive or Ram.

Hiren's Boot CD 15.2 - http://www.hirensbootcd.org/files/Hirens.BootCD.15.2.zip

You will want to run memtest X86 to test the Ram or Hitachi's Drive Fitness Test or SeaTools to test your hard drive.

This BootCD is not for the typical end user whom may not know there way around the features and options this Tech CD provides.

You will want to burn the Hirens Boot.ISO file to a CD (Burn Image Option) using any of your favorite flavors of burn software.

Hope this helps.

You can also download these diagnostic test individually such as memtest x86 and Hitachi's DFT or SeaTools independently from the Boot CD just by doing a google search. This might be the easier way to perform these tests for people who aren't very savvy with boot CD's.

After boting monitior is getting shut down


When the monitor shuts down, is the activity light on the monitor blinking yellow? or staying yellow constant? Have you tested another monitor? When does the monitor shutdown exactly what is the computer doing at the time the monitor shuts down?

1. Blinking yellow means failing monitor. Not all monitors will exhibit this behavior. For example my Acer Monitor blinks with a blue light when no video input is detected. It doesn't always mean the monitor is bad, but may indicate the video card is failing. Also check and/or replace the video cables

2. Solid yellow means no video input detected Not all monitors will exhibit this behavior. For example my Acer Monitor blinks with a blue light when no video input is detected. It doesn't always mean the monitor is bad, but may indicate the video card is failing. Also check and/or replace the video cables

3. Testing another monitor tells you if the video card is failing. If another monitor works, the problem is your old monitor failing, if a new monitor doesn't work, then the problem is more than likely a failing video card.

4. It is rare but sometimes the Video PCI slots can go bad, while another may work on the same motherboard. This further indicates if it's a motherboard issue, and not the monitor or the video card. Just change the PCI slots the video card is plugged in to and see if it works.

5. Power issues can cause this video issue as well; For example if your PSU is not strong enough to support your video card, it may exhibit no input detected issues past a certain point in the boot process. This is due to lack of power being supplied to the video card. MOST video cards have a warning of sorts if this is a case, but some do not. This issue is more common with higher end gaming video cards and/or lower end power supplies.

The best way to test this is to disconnect ALL devices from the motherboard that require power; For example; CD drives, Hard drives, USB devices that may be plugged in other than keyboards/mice. Only boot the PC with the video card, RAM, and CPU installed. If you get video start attaching 1 device at a time and doing a fresh boot with each device connected. So if the PC boots fine with video on the monitor when the CD Drive is plugged in... it's not the CD Drive causing it. Then hook up the hard drive WITH the CD drive, and see if the PC boots with video then... If it does not, you can infer a power issue might be causing the problem.

Another issue that may effect the video card directly pertaining to power issues are; Try swapping the power cables to the video card with a different power cable. That is to say a power cable coming from the Power Supply that isn't connected to anything or in use by anything else. It is possible a power cable line is bad and/or not working in which case it's a Power Supply issue.

In some cases; This test will be negative on all accounts; At this point, It may be your RAM/CPU causing the issue; Try reseating the ram, that is to say uninstall the ram physically, use a cloth to clean the gold prongs on the ram sticks, and place the ram sticks back into the motherboard; See if it boots up with video then. If it does not; Try removing ram sticks 1 or 2 at a time as required and checking again. This helps determine if it's a specific ram stick causing the problem.

6. If the video STILL is not showing up you will want to check the following.

Check the motherboard for blown capacitors; They will appear in the following forms; Clearly bubbled tops on the capacitors; Exploded tops or yellow crystalized liquid leaking from one or more of the capacitors (like battery acid). This causes a HUGE list of random issues that are symptomatic of power issues. In this case a (Failing Motherboard) Most common on intel and dell motherboards especially on older hardware/PC's.

The CPU is the hardest thing to detect if it's failing, and is rarely the cause, if common sense and care are taken when handling a CPU.

At this point if you still can't figure out what's causing the problem; Replacing the motherboard or monitor is recommended. Monitor if you do not have another monitor to test. Or motherboard if you've exhausted all other troubleshooting steps.

I realize it's a lengthy description, but your description of the problem wasn't exactly specific so I wanted to be thorough and cover all the basis that could cause this problem.

Hope this helps.

Error code 2000-0122


Error code 2000-0122 means that the RAM failed its tests, the steps to fix it are:

  1. Locate the RAM modules in your laptop, (refer to product documentation for help)
  2. Remove the RAM modules one by one, if you have say 2 stick of RAM installed, put one in and leave the second out and try again if it still fails, remove it and put the other one in and do the same.
  3. Failing that place both the RAM modules in together and try a third time
  4. If this is still failing, you require new RAM

Error code 1 and 3 on my Precor 9.21s treadmill?


Precor Error 01, Memory, RAM, EEPROM Test Error Probable Cause This error message almost always indicate an upper PCA problem when they are consistently displayed. Failures causing this error message to be displayed are rare.
Corrective Action If the error message is consistently displayed when the unit is powered up, the upper PCA should be replaced. It is possible to see this message displayed intermittently due to external causes. If the units A.C. input significantly dips during the power up test sequence the test could fail resulting in this message being displayed. Treadmills operating on non-dedicated A.C. circuits may see this message displayed on an intermittent basis. Precor Error Code 01

Lightbulb is red and flashing next to turn on switch. What is the cause?


Could be a number of things. Usually a hardware problem Try:
-removing and reseating the RAM chips, test, if no good, try
-remove one RAM chip, test, if no good, try
-unplugging all components (hard drives, CD/DVD drives, floppy...anything that consumes power), test, if no good, try
-letting the system sit for 10 minutes, powered off too cool down, test, if no good, try
-a different CPU, test, if no good, try
-a different motherboard

If any of the above steps gives you a different result than the flashing red light, then the offending part has been removed from the test equation.
-Reseating the RAM can fix thermal creep
-If you have one bad RAM chip out of multiple chips, removing and replacing them one at a time can show which chip may be bad.
-If a drive/component is bad, removing that component can allow the computer to boot
-Heat can cause component failure or erratic behavior (no boot, etc)
-A failed CPU can prevent boot or POST
-A failed motherboard can prevent boot or POST.

Best of luck!

THERE IS NO POST IN D955XBK


Hi. Thanks for your questions.

You nee to disconnect everything of the motherboard before any testing can be done. Please only leave your RAM & Processor
  • Your PC will not POST if


  1. Your CPU is dead or not placed properly. To get this possibility out of the way you need to make sure that you PC is properly seated. Remove it and put it back in again. It would be perfect if you could test processor somewhere else.
  2. Your RAM is not seated properly or one of the sticks is bad if you have more then one. Although your motherboard should beep if this is the case. To get this out of the way make sure your RAM works by testing in working PC. Check for bad RAM sockets by using every single one with good RAM module and powering up.
  3. Make sure there is nothing shorting connection on motherboard. It's easy done by placing motherboard on something metal at the back of it (screws sockets).
  4. If all this fails you need to start thinking about components on motherboard, but that's a completely different story. One hint is when everything fails try pushing down on some of the big chips while trying to power up.
If pressing against chips worked you need to reflow them. Please see this video for a tip on what that means -------->http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CgTbkTK2iwk&feature=related
I hope i have helped you. Don't hesitate to ask more questions if this is needed.
Thank You for using FixYa

Motherboard power is on but cannot display screen, the monitor is black or no screen.


your problem could be almost any of your hardware components
the best way to detirmine wich one/how to fix it is with a process of illimination. You should do this by switching your hardware components with known good ones.
being a display problem the order i would test with is this.
  1. disconect everything but the screen
  2. swap screen for a known good one
  3. disconect graphics card and try the onboard (if no onboard try another gc)
  4. test psu (power supply unit) this can be done with either a psu tester, multimitre or try with another psu
  5. try removing all your RAM, when you boot if your system beeps a couple of times you know that your motherboardand cpu are good. if it doesnt beep it is probably your motherboard or cpu.

BOOT FAIL: PCF8584: I2C ERROR


According to the message you received on the screen there's might be something wrong with your RAM module(s). Take a look inside and see if everything's alright with RAM. Replace it to another slot if there are empty.
Download and use a program like MemTest to see if RAM is properly working.
If you have another computer which is compatible with your RAM, try it inserting then in to PC and see if everyhting's alright.
If nothing helps, then purchase a new RAM module
