I get continious beeping in my computer with no display


No beeps Short, no power, bad CPU or motherboard, or the CPU is not installed properly. One long beep, then two short beeps Video problem Continuous hi-lo beeps CPU overheating Repeated long beeps Memory error All other beeps Memory related error
If you are getting hi lo beeps, refit CPU and heatsink
If continuous long beeps, check memory is seated correctly, if more than 1 stick, try each one on its own, 1 may be faulty, or incompatable

Took the cover off to clean the dust off the fans put it back together it will turn on and fans will run but wont boot


1) Side Cover off; Observe whether the fan that pushed air over the Processor is operating.

2) Remove all ram memory modules, and reseat them.
Doesn't take much to bump a ram memory module ('Stick') loose.

Although they may appear to be correctly seated in the their individual ram slots, it is just added assurance to remove, and replace them.

3) Computer was unplugged from power, and if you reached inside, you did observe Anti-Static Precautions, correct?

Anti-Static Precautions:

Your body carries Static electricity.
Static will fry out (Short Circuit), the delicate hardware components inside a computer.
You must relieve your body of Static BEFORE, reaching inside your computer.

Computer unplugged from power, Touch the metal frame of the open computer case, to relieve your body of Static.

As also has been stated, make sure all cables all plugged in tightly.

How to repair memory ? means that how to test the memory chipsets ? how to sholdering & removing them ?


if you shut it down open the case you wil see 1 or 2 memory cards standing up in sockets off of the motherboard.
there is a white clip on either side of the memory card you pull them back away from the memory card and that corner pops up do same for the other side after you get 1 out you can try booting up to see if it boots up if it does chances are that memory stick is good.
then pull that 1 out and try the first 1 you took out to see if it boots up on that stick if it does not boot then memory is bad.
if it is bad you will need to buy another stick of ram if memory serves me you can get a set of 2 matching cards for around $35 dollars.
If you have vista on it you can run mem test goto start then in the search box type in memory and click on Memory Diagnostic Tool and it will ask to run mem test now or the next time you start computer up.

Doesn't load the anything beeps continually at about 1 second intervals


The beeping is the mainboard giving you a fault code!! Remove everything that you have plugged into the board except the cpu and its heatsink. Now, boot the machine, If it still beeps, check the cpu is seated correctly or return the board. If it now boots (it will still beep because no RAM is installed) then shut it down and refit each item one at a time, booting it after each item is fitted. When it stops booting again, the last item you refitted is the cause, replace it. If it boots when everything is refitted, you had a hinkey connection, Pay carefull attention to RAM sticks and expansion cards ( graphics cards, internal modems) etc. This is a common issue and removing and refitting the various components will usually cure it. TAKE NOTE that ALL computer components do not like static discharge. You may have already damaged the board or components and not know it. Make sure you discharge yourself by touching the metal chassis of the case BEFORE you touch anything else..

Computer wont start(Plz Help me ) Added Much Detail as possiable


start by removing everything, ram, any cards plugged in, drives etc. Then try and boot it. If the issue is still present, shut it down and remove the heatsink and cpu. I have known CPU's to be jolted out of their sockets after an impact. Take the heatsink off, lift the lever and remove the cpu. Check that all the pins are still aligned and straighten any bent pins then refit the cpu and lock the lever down. Refit the heatsink making sure that the heat transfer pad or heatsink paste is still present and lock it down. Plug the power cords and front panel wiring back in and try and boot it. If it boots, shut down and refit each item you removed one at a time, booting in between each item. If the issue arises again, the last item you fitted is the culprit. If you can refit everything and boot the system up, lady luck is with you. If you still cannot get it to boot after refitting the cpu, replace the mainboard. Sorry but without special gear, locating a fault like this on a mainboard is a real pain..

Computer wont power up. Light stay amber and fan come on


Hi. No I think mobo is ok as you've got power to fan and lights. Are the drives kicking in? if yes then I think its your memory. Also if the drives are kicking in then your cpu is also ok. So that leaves the memory and graphics card. Good luck

SD as hard drive--windows XP download


An SD card isn't usually used as Hard Drives as they don't contain enough space. Although they are getting bigger and bigger capacities all the time!

I think what your after is booting your computer off the SD card which will have Windows on it? Some computers can boot straight from the SD card, my old laptop used too!

What needs to happen is that you need to go into your BIOS settings (which are your motherboard settings) and in ther you can set boot sequence, so by default most are set to Hard Drive first. The computer looks there first for the operating System. So you need to tell your Motherboard to boot from your SD card 1st. Now your motherboard needs to be able to support this feature, my guess is that it probably wont.

Go into the BIOS and find the boot sequence and scroll through the available options, if SD is in there, set it. If not your motherboard wont support booting from SD.
