Good day. What you can do too resolve this issue is to clean your fan from dust.. Usually the fan sucks in dirt while keeping your system cool, overtime this dust clogs your fan causing a loud noise. You can also check your hard drive because defective or hard drives that have problem causes scratching noise as well. Hope this information help you a bit. Have a great day.

It is most likely the cable that connects your computer to your monitor. I just had this same issue myself recently and it was my monitor that was going off and on. Try another VGA cable that runs from your computer tower to your monitor. See if that resolves your issue.

And what happens after the video format message? Does the computer boot? Does Windows XP run OK? If so, look at your Startup folder to see if a link to a video file is there (and starting up automatically). Once you find it, move that like to your desktop and / or delete it from the Startup folder. If video is starting by an entry in the registry (in the Run section), then it's another story, and I wouldn't recommend that you touch or edit the registry if you don't have the experience. Microsoft stopped supporting Windows XP back in April, no security updates, so you are at risk in terms of security. Consider upgrading to Windows 7, or buying a machine from a source other than a garage sale. Just suggesting. Good luck.

Bill: depends on how u r hooked to internet. direct thru cat5 cable to modem, or wirelessly thru router? then, you must make sure that your modem is connected to web? make sure modem is connected; plug in to desktop(off) then turn desktop on; go to start, then control panel, then Network and Internet; find out if you see a connection? if so, then right click on network connection, click on Troubleshoot Issues. this will try to resolve your internet connectivity. if you still cannot get online, call your internet provider for more specific steps in fixing.

Hi Billy, depends on what you mean by restore. Assuming you have windows installed, you can make a back-up by going to START > Control Panel > System and Security > Create a backup (the path above may be a bit off from the wording, the PC I am on at the moment is not an english version.) Then on the left side there is a link to create a recovery disk or create a backup. the recovery disk option only makes a bootable disk to start your computer if your windows cannot start. This only gives you an enviroment where you can try to fix windows or to restore a backup that you created beforehand with the second option above. If you create a backup, there are two things to keep in mind... what type of data do you want to back up and how often. You can put check marks on all data that you want to backup (Note: the more data you backup the larger your backup file will be). If you plan on restoring a corrupt windows with the backup you should include "System State". Restoring from a backup file a.k.a. backup image will ONLY give you back the files that were on your computer at the time you made the backup... that means everything that you created after you made the backup will be lost. Hope that helps.

It doesn't work that way. The current driver software that you have installed will not work on another install. Your best bet is is to go Dell website and enter your service tag(serial number) of your computer and download drivers. http://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/04?c=&l=&s=bsd?c=us

many times if the fan over the cpu chip on the motherboard fails to run or blow, an beeping alarm will begin and PC will not start. the cpu has to be kept cool so if fan fails the startup is stopped. have found lose wire connections from fan to motherboard terminal, or power supply may be blown, try checking those first. if nothing lose then wiggle those wires to see if the fan starts.

We need more information to help on this. Does the Screen turn on? Does it make any beeping sounds? Add more information and I would love to help.

Wesley, If the computer turns on, operating system loads up, and you are able to move things around for a bit before it just turns completely off (without crashing, just off), then the issue is most likely the power supply. Simply replacing the power supply should resolve the issue without too much difficulty. If, however, the computer completely turns off while it is starting up, the issue can be far more complex. If you have additional information on this problem, please reply, we'll see what we can do :)

It is most likely dead! Sorry but that is what it sound like. One can buy a PC cheaper than having an older model repaired. Plus as of April 04, 2014 Windows XP will no longer be supported by Microsoft. Get Windows 7 PC!!! I’m happy to help further over the phone at https://www.6ya.com/expert/phillip_293d34ebcf028794

Try connecting the monitor to a friend's computer. If you get some sort of a display it's not the problem. When you say that the computer makes a new noise like the fans are spinning fast, you might have an issue with the video card , motherboard, or power supply.
