I have hp dv9700, after improper shutdown kept rebooting

What happened is that you interrupted the disk write on 'saving settings'. Very BAD. You may be able to start in safe mode, by pressing F8 while windows is starting, then selecting options to attempt to repair. The alternative, is to boot from the windows CD and select 'repair'.

Compaq Presario F700 reboots every 2 seconds.

I just wrote up a big explanation and posted it and now I don't see it anywhere (discouraging). So here's my short version. I had this reboot every 2 sec problem on my Presario F700 and finally gave it up for dead. I used the site and popped off the top cover (where the power button is) and took the HP Sticker off the power button and it's worked fine so far. I tried all the other things everyone suggested (the remove the hard drive, etc.) and those didn't work. So's working good. I hope it works for you!

Computer keeps re-booting while installing any operating system

Were the two power supplies you tried inclusive of the original failed drive or not. In other words did you try a total a 3 power supplies including the one that failed?

If not, please do so. That is, immediately analyze the original known part failure, the power supply or its connection to the board(s) you have tried.

Congratulations for such an exhaustive process of elimination.

Rebooting computer wen entering cd even if data cable is unplugge

I can barely understand what you are saying. But if I have it right the system reboots by itself when a CD is inserted...

NEVER remove the data cable while the power is on. [you only get away with this once or twice and then you WILL break something.]

Do not connect a HDD to the same cable as your CD drive. The CD/DVD drive should be on its own cable witt nothing else attached [80pin conductor]. The HDD should be on its own cable. It has a different cable with different configuration and is NOT suitable for your DVD/CD...

Computer Does not Boot correctly, Monitor is Black.

Very interesting...Might try the following...
- Video. Yes, almost garuntee that it is either the video card/onboard or the cable. Look at the cable and cable connectors and see if one of the pins has been shoved in. This is common. Often, one will replace the cable and still have the problem because a pin has been shoved in on the mother board.
- Power. Remove everything from your computer except the keyboard and the monitor (yes, even the mouse) to eliminate any power drain issues. If you can, remove the DVD drive (unplug power and data bus cable).
- BIOS. One beep is good. You should be able to get into the BIOS setup no mater what other problems you are having. The BIOS uses a generic text, video and keyboard driver. If you aren't able to see ANYTHING after the beep then it is definately the route from the motherboard through the video card or onboard video, through the cable to the screen. You seem to be going through the right steps to debug but just haven't found it yet because it is something that you have dismissed as the pins on the video connector. Go through your path again, this time look at anything that you have assumed that was working and suspect it as the issue.

Reboot windows XP

This problem might occur because "USB 4" might be a bootable device. To prevent "USB 4" from booting, Enter your BIOS and go to the 'boot priority' section.
Set it in this order: 1. CD/DVD Drive 2. Removable Devices 3. HDD.
IF that does not work, place HDD as the second priority and Removable Devices as the third.

To enter your bios, Hit F2, F12, or Delete repeatedly. I am not sure which key it is for your motherboard, but hitting all those buttons should do the trick.

Gateway desktop 506gr power issue narrowed down?

That was pretty unclear.  Is there a kind of burning symptom that suggests a short to you?  It seems to me that what happened is that either there was a power outage and your system thus shut down...all you'd have to to would be hit the computer's power button to turn it back on...or a fan somewhere died and therefore the system won't power up until you replace or repair that.  At least get a vacuum in there and brush out the dust so you can work.

What happened when you got a simplified system that 'worked'?  Was the power supply's fan spinning, at least?  What's the green light on, anyhow?

Chaintech Motherboard NO SCREEN

Unplug the power. Then start with only the items you need to boot. Remove any cards that might be causing an issue, if you can't simply find the culprit of your boot lock issue. This sounds like a card or some RAM or something isn't quite plugged in. If your power supply still gives power to the system check to see if the fan on the power supply died. This could mean you need a new power supply if the old one overheated and cooked itself.

Sometimes you will get a card that is half plugged in and it will cause a short and the system will not fully power to avoid ruining the motherboard completely. After re-seating all the cards, try to boot it again. Check ALL connections and look for any USB connection that might be stopping the system from booting as well.

If you have a different video card you may want to try it next if you still can't get video.

Hope that helped out...
