If you mean that your pc constantly restarts, then you may either have a RAM problem, or a PCI Card problem. Start by removing the screw on the back of your computer, The one that is holding down the left side cover if you are looking at it from the front.

Then, simply remove your stick of ram, and put on the pc. Then take off the pc and put back the part in another slot... Put the pc on and see if it boots.

Next, if that does not work, Press the power button and start tapping the F8 key. The Windows Advanced Options Menu appears. If you begin tapping the F8 key too soon, some computers display a "keyboard error" message. To resolve this, restart the computer and try again.
Ensure that the Safe mode option is selected.
Press Enter. The computer then begins to start in Safe mode.

If that does not work, try live help so someone can run you through the process...

Cannot record sigmatele soundcard in windowsxp pro


Dell Suport > Dimension E510 Desktop PC > Drivers and Downloads>

http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/19

Look in the box under the Operating System subheading -
Windows Vista 32-bit.
The download page automatically opens to Vista 32-bit.

Left-click on the blue Down Arrow, to the right of the box.
In the drop down list, left-click on Windows XP.
(Works for both Home Edition, and Pro Edition)

Click on the blue Down Arrow to the left of - Audio (3)
Go down to the third file listed in blue - SIGMATEL - Driver
Go across, and left-click on - Download File

In the pop-up window make sure there is a green dot in the small circle, to the left of - For Single File Download via Browser.
If not left-click in the small circle.

Now go to the bottom of the pop-up window, and click on -
Download Now in the blue oval.
A small window will come up on the right -
Opening R114282.EXE

Left-click on Save File
Another small window will come up on the left.
In the heading at the top of the window, tells you where the file will download to.

Using Windows XP as an example;
(Doesn't matter if it's Home Edition or Pro Edition),

It may have Desktop, or My Documents, or Downloads, in the wording.

Desktop: The driver file will be on your desktop screen.
My Documents: Left-click on Start, then My Documents

Downloads: Left-click on Start, then My Documents.
DOUBLE-click on Downloads.

When you see the file name DOUBLE-click on it.
(Yes the file is OK, if a Microsoft 'Squawk Box' comes up. Click on RUN )

The Installation Wizard will appear. At the bottom of the next three small windows, click on Next, Next, and Finish.

If you are not asked to restart your computer, do so. Close all windows, go back to your desktop screen.
Restart. (Start > Turn Off Computer > Restart)

When Windows goes to load you should hear the Windows 'jingle'.

Still No?
Let the computer run for about 10 minutes or so. Surf the internet, whatever.
Now turn the computer off.
WAIT 2 minutes, turn the computer back on.

Sometimes it takes a Hard Start. { Cold Boot }
(Restart is a Soft Start. Warm Boot)

Still no? The audio chipset on the motherboard, (Integrated Audio) is bad. Suggest an economical sound card, for one of the white PCI slots.
Need guidance with this post in a Comment.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

My Dell Dimension 2400 refuses to load Windows XP


Hi,
What happens?Does it hang on the loading page or does it restart itself before loading?
If it hangs on the loading page,press CTRL,ALT and DEL.This boots the system.
If it restarts itself,remove the hard disk and re-fix it again.Problem solved?
Remove the CMOS battery and the hard disk and re-fix them again.Problem solved?
If not,you may have to repair your operating system.
This how you do it:-
  • Remove your hard disk and enslave[fix it as a secondary drive] it on another machine with a good operating system.
  • Start the machine.Accept to run unnix[using two drives]
  • The machine will automatically detect your hard disk's failure on the operating system and repair the damaged files.
  • On completion and after Windows opens,turn off the machine and remove your hard disk.
  • Fix the hard disk now on your machine and start it.
Hope this helps.Thanks!

My dasktop doesn't completely load windows xp setup


hi, did you run the upgrade adviser, before running xp set up? this will tell you any upgrades or possible problems you may have. it is probably a hardware compatibility, as the aging p3 systems would have. if you can, go back with the older operating system, then run upgrade adviser, you may be able to correct he issue, i still have a pentium 2 450,that i put xp on years ago-it runs great for a p2-so it is not impossible to do.also did you do a quick or full format in the fat or ntfs, do full, and try the fat format for that p3. hope this helps you, good luck! need more help post again.

Reformatting problem


Do you mean that you are re-loading windows? if you are when it reboots after re-loading and it says boot/start with cd-rom support do not press enter again or anything else for that matter because if you do it will keep taking you through the whole process again. Once it has loaded and reboots do not press anything it will start windows( even though it gives you the option to start with cd-rom support - just ignore it), itself and take you to the welcome screen etc... once this happens you can take the disk out.
