Dear kgreen13,

You may have a version of Explorer that has been infected with a virus or with spyware. If you can, start your machine in Safe Mode (press F8 just before the Windows logo appears.) When it comes up go to Start, Run and type "msconfig". Slect Diagnostic Startup and restart your machine. Go in the internet and if you can run a free spyware checker like the ones at or and try to get your system cleaned. If successful return to "msconfig" and return it to normal startup.

Good luck.

I need more ram memory

Visit and type in the model # of your computer (ex: Dell Inspiron 870) for exact parts you can use. I've used the site for years and am happy with their service.

Actual replacement is easy and takes about 5 minutes (instructions available at same site above, or a million places on the Net).

How do I update computer bios

Hiyou do not need to update the bios of your computer (systemax desktop pc ) because the current version of your bios is still up to date. If you are having a problem and you want your computer bios default all you need to do is to remove the cmos battery for 1 minute just to be sure because the standard wait time is only 30 sec. put it back after 1 minute. automatically the bios will be back to default settings

I have a Systemax Venture computer that is 3 years old. Just developed a problem. Turn the computer on and after 20 to 30 seconds the computer shut down. What is wrong???

Hi there.
Remove all power to the desktop, remove the side panel, power the machine up and check that CPU fan is working, if it is turn the computer back off, get a clean, dry paintbrush and gently clean the fan blades and the metal heat sync behind the fan of dust, then restart the PC to see how long it stays on for. If this time it stays on it was overheating.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!!

What is Computer Access Code

u mean when you first turn it on it asks for a PW,

unplug it (necessary)
take off left side cover (when looking at front) (if you have to take out more than 2 screws your doing it wrong)

and pop out the small silver watch battery with a flat screwdriver(push tab) for a few minutes
put everything back

if you dont see it or don't know what your doing leave it alone or you'll screw something up

No Audio


I have a friend with a systemax, same thing happened to him.

Go into the control panel, select sounds and audio devices, go over three tabs to the audio tab, make sure the sound default device is the onboard audio card. Should be all set.

Let me know how it works out.

Systemax ascent won't stay powered on

I recommend that you replace the PSU, Power Supply Unit with a new one, this is a simple task. Remove the plug from Motherboard remove the four screws from the PSU at rear and get a replacement one say a 450 Watt job. Install and ya be good to go.
