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.

Lost Windows password:


  • Login as Administrator. Try with no password (load safe mode if you don't see Administrator). Press F8 during boot to access Safe Mode.
  • Login as other user (if other user is available) and manage users. Must be an administrator.
  • Reformat computer.
  • Use 3rd party software to remove password. Like http://www.top-password.com/reset-windows-password.html


There is a free boot CD called Hirens. This one command prompt only.

How do i restore my hp pavilion dv 5000 to factort setting?


There should have been a recovery disk created or included when you bought a laptop. Insert disk if you have it and restart your computer with the recovery disk in the CD drive. Make sure all your documents and personal data are backed up. When the computer restarts it should start restoring your computer to the factory default. There will be a wizard to guide you through the process.
If there is no disk or got lost,then follow this steps:
1.Save any files or folders on your computer with flash drives. Drag and drop files onto the icon of your flash drive.
2.Go to "Start" > "Restart" to reboot your netbook.
3.Hold down "Alt" and "F10" when you see the logo on the screen. The recovery menu will load.
4.Hit "Enter" and then "Next" to see your recovery options. Choose "Factory Restore" to set your computer back to factory settings. Follow the instructions on the screen.
5.Choose your time zone and language when the customization menu appears. Reboot when you are prompted.
6.Restore your saved files from the flash drive.

hope this helps,Goodluck..pls response with your rate and testimonials below for further issues..thanks

Can not install xp , it says disk boot failure, insert system disk and press enter


If you are trying to intall Windows XP and you get that message it means that the MBR section in your disk is physical damagaged, you can not perform any installation, your HDD is dead, get a new one. But before that you can try to do a low level format :
1- Get "Hiren's Boot CD" from the internet
links for HBCD
torrent : http://www.btscene.com/details/2247719/Hiren+s+Boot+CD+12+Full.html

Uploading : http://uploading.com/files/ab2c6mda/Hirens...12.0.part2.rar/
http://uploading.com/files/42a119e7/Hirens...12.0.part1.rar/
2- It's an ISO file, burn it on a CD.
3- Reboot your machine using that CD.
4- Navigating over the menu of Hiren's Boot CD and go to Disks Problem and formatting, (some thing like that).
5- Perform a low level format.
6- The operation will take many times, about 4 to 8 hours.
7- After the operation complete try to install XP.
8- If it does'nt work then get a new HDD.

I am unable to install win Xp. when trying to boot from a cd to install fresh win xp ser. 2. system reboot after copying few installation files. The Bios set up shows the Sata Hard Drive but unable to load...


your HDD may be bad. I have had a number of HDD that appear fine in the BIOS but won't format either via the install disk or separately via a Linux boot disc.(You can somtimes hear them clicking on and off [seeking])

If you are mad keen on the drive, then D/L 'Hirens Boot Disc' and boot into the DOS mode (it also has a Mini XP mode).and use the HDD format utlity 'killdisk'. This will remove anything on the drive, format it and set it up ready for a fresh install.

If Hirens Boot Disk can't see the SATA drive then its stuffed.. for sure..
