Hai
If you can open the computer, take out the RAM carefully, clean its base, and put it back gently. Try to reboot, if the machine shows some thing good its OK.
If there is 2 beeps its RAM problem or if it beeps continuasly, its power supply problem.
If you dout RAM, have a new one and check.

    hai,

    OK, ok..

    There is a chance of the firmware of the hard disk got corrupted.

    The firmware means, the permanent program written on the ROM of the HDD which have the details of the manufacturer, model, size etc. Once it happened to me and i got it corrected from a Hard Disk Specialist near my place. But in firmware problem, the symptoms are: the BIOS will detect the HDD, it shows wrong size in GB and computer may not boot to windows or so.

    if this is ur problem, then don't worry, enquire in ur nearest dealer or service center for the HDD specialist available in ur place for the firmware correction.



    In ur case, if there is mechanical sound, then it seems that ur hard disk is having some kind of mechanical problem. Solution to this is try to boot it up and if u succeed, backup ur documents to a pendrive or CD and go for a new HDD

    Hope this will solve ur problem

    good luck

Cant get computer to load says operatingsystem not found exiting broadcom andmedia test failure


Your computer has been unable to read from your disk-drive, and so it tries to communicate through your Ethernet cable, hoping to connect to a "boot-server", i.e., another computer that would feed a copy of Windows through your network connection, so that your computer can load Windows. If there is no "boot-server" on your network, then the 'PXE' (Pre eXecution Environment) reports that it has "failed".

But, it's your disk-drive that either is "dead", or not getting any electrical power (loose connector? or dying power-supply?) or the data-cable between the motherboard and the disk-drive is loose/disconnected.

Hitachi Deskstar causes a Power Error on my Gigabyte GA-Z68AP-D3


test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions, SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty ?

make sure the CPU central processing unit has thermal grease and a dust free secure seating


even something as small as an electrical extension or a faulty fan lead can cause this problem computers need all of the data and electrical current to travel through every working device and to have an end for a computer to be able work properly


could be a memory dump you might have to many programs running at one time putting to much stress on the CPU not having enough ram will do this

might be getting to hot make sure the CPU has a dust free secure seating and has THERMAL paste

if you right click in the bottom toolbar select task manager applications you will see whats running also processes you will see whats ticking over if you see something running that should not be select end now you might even uninstall that program and some unnecessary programs


check your computer ram and cmos battery to make sure they are securely seated and the battery has plenty of charge

some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in


hope it helps

Ibm deskstar model dtla-307015 invalid system


For some reason, the computer isn't able to read the hard drive and Windows isn't being found. If this computer has a floppy disk drive, make sure there's no disk in it. (Some people still use floppies, and the normal setting for systems with floppy drives is to try booting from that drive first. You may have a disk in it that isn't bootable.) Other possible causes are hard drive failure, a virus or other malware program has damaged the drives boot sector, or a motherboard problem. The most likely cause would be the hard drive; as a mechanical device they are more prone to fail than other parts.

IBM Deskstar 120GXP 123.5GB


That model acer is a newer system; pentium dual-core; so bios limitations should not be an issue. With the 120GXP older drive; check that the 32GB jumper is right. The pins have a label (red text) on the back; ensure it is set to master (according to the far left label) not the right. It will take 2 jumpers; not just one. See how that works. Also, check your bios settings; and ensure the IDE power ... is enabled. (for example secondary) may be disabled. Or, check that "legacy" support is enabled in the bios. Please rank me if this helps.

I seem unable to connect my Panasonic NV GS30 via firewire tried 2 cables and 2 computers windows does not see camera like it used to. Only other fault that has appeared is jitter on viewfinder display.


Hello, and maybe this can help! Sense your viewfinder has jittered, your computer has reconized it. However, your software that you are using on the computer may be corrupt. i suggest that you insert the cd and instead of removing it, click repair. If this does not work, try checking the cable and make sure that it has a tight connection. One question. Did you pc make the standard beep noise when you plugged it in??? if not, then it is your computers. most likely, it is your camera or your software.

Well, I guess your running windows XP ? If you open the disk manager, does it show up there ? When you reboot, does the Bios discover the drive ?
