New PC keeps freezing on cold start but will work fine after Hard restart (I.E. pull the plug out on the wall) Motherboard and Memory have been changed.

CPU 4500 Dual Core Intel. PS/2 Mouse and USB Keyboard. PC WOrld TECH Guys are stumped, Local PC shop is stumped and my brother is stumped which for him is unbelieveable though he thinks the CPU is not getting enough volts but the BIOS does not allow for anything to be change. So if anyone has another idea please chip in! Caroline

Change the power supply. Your power supply is probably bad. try with new 400/450W power supply.

X58 pro e hard to cold start

Three long beeps may signify a keyboard error, and 3 short may refer to memory error. These are best guesses, because MSI uses several BIOS manufactures. Test your RAM one chip at a time to help isolate bad dimm.

Restarts unexpectedly

It can be one of three culprits with this unit -- first, try running it without the front panel plugged into the motherboard (the one with the front USB ports) and set the BIOS to auto power-on. If it keeps running after about 2-3 hours, then it's a bad cable. If not, swap out the PSU. A Thermaltake TR2 430W from Frys or MicroCenter works perfectly. If that doesn't stop it, take a good hard look at the capacitors near your memory on the motherboard. If they are even slightly 'popped,' then the board / memory controller may very well be bad. Swap the motherboard.

It stops after 2 or 3 minutes after its startup.plz help me to keep it going forever?

what you can do is reinstall your OS and pick the rights settings leave them all normal or your second option is to check your hard drive for error and run a program for that or your third option is disconnect the power from your motherboard it a big16-18 pin connector running from the power supply then disconnect the power supply cable that run to the wall outlet wait 2-5 minuets then plug the motherboard power connector the connect the power from the power supply back turn it on and you PC should not freeze or stop after booting if its still does get a new hard drive...

Computer freezes on the dell spash screen, progress bar does not complete, have removed and reseated the memory and the hard drive, and various connections, a friend plugged the hard drive into another pc...

could be related to the motherboard. try entering BIOS by pressing F2 when the system restarts. If it works, try to reset the BIOS defaults and see if that helps. If same thing happens, try to reseat the CMOS battery, or find a jumper reset on the motherboard. If nothing works, you may need to get your system serviced and it may need a new motherboard

Dimension 3000 keeps freezing

Sounds to me like the hard drive might be going bad. Bad sectors on the hard drive can cause the freezing to happen.

If you have a spare known working hard drive, put that one into the system and then install windows xp on it and see what happens.

If that doesn't do it then try each memory stick one at a time in each slot one at a time and see if the freezing goes away. If it does then you know its a memory stick problem.

Also unseat and reseat the CPU into the slot and make sure there is not dust or dirt in the socket that the CPU sits in.

After all of this if you still have freeze up problems then the motherboard is bad.

My system randomly freezes.i`m using a gigabyte ma770-ud3 rev2 motherboard,with a phenomx3 black edition 8750,ocz 2g ddr2(x2)and a600watt psu.all of these are new.i am using a nvidia 7300le graphics...

This might take some time and would require some troubleshooting from your side.

Hardware related this could either be your memory, PSU or graphics card (sometimes the motherboard). perhaps by booting your PC without these components, replaced by other, to test if the problem relates to any of these devices.

Also look into your device drivers, install the new Nvidia driver for your graphic card as well as the chipset drivers for your motherboard.

Start by troubleshooting your hardware and post me back your feedback so that we can see where your problem lies.

Keep moving forward.

T30 with XP hangs and freezes intermittenly during usage...

There's a chance it's still the memory slots. You know, they are located directly beneath the hard drive.
Just a thought.
good luck
