Q: My PC wont start - Even the BIOS start page wont display

Help,

having to use the works computer to post this. My home pc is failing to startup.

Before it had gotten this bad, I had experienced crashes and reboots whilst it was working. They became more frequent and now the computer wont start at all. The power comes on, the fans all whirr, but the computer doesnt even get to the point where it displays the introductory bios screen.

Any advice?

Computer is a little old now. Intel 2600k inside.

guys,

my computer wont boot and still it wont display.
i already changed a video card and stil it wont.
it have no beep at all and it will not display.

what should i do?
 

A:guys my computer wont start and wont have a display

does it beep any. if not this will indicate more major problems. (unless you dont have beep speaker installed) a mother board is programed with a set of beep to play if there is a problem like such as three beeps if the ram is not working, 1 long beep if the vid card is not working etc etc. I DO NOT KNOW WHAT YOUR BEEPs WILL BE. if you are not getting these then you need to find out why. see if you have a speaker inside your case. if you do and all of your fans spin but still no action from you pc then you may have a larger problem such as mother board or processor.

I posted this in the hardware section because i know its gotta be hardware related. On one of my older computers, which is a HP(bought in 2002), wont start at all. Not even the Compaq logo will display, which means BIOS wont start either. so i cant boot at all, or operate the computer in anyway. This happened right after i installed a gig of RAM, i was upgrading from 512 mb to 1 gig, they were 2 different cards, 512 each, and both had 189 pins. I installed them, booted up and nothing.

I really dint think there is a solution for this though, because after that, i put the 512 RAM back in and it still didnt work. Im thinking the motherboard was fried, by static electricity maybe. if thats the case than ill just get a new computer. which leads me to my next question.
How do i access my Harddrive? I have a lot of valuable data on there and an expensive music collection, as well as a bounch of backed up movies.
Any help is really appreciated guys, thanks in advance.

So I turn my computer off one day only to find it wont start the next day. I open the case up and see the led is on. I flip the switch on the power supply off then on and quickly press the power button. My computer starts but the following time I shut down the computer it again wont start and now the led is blinking. I've never had any issues like this before, any help would be appreciated.

I don't routinely use many usb devices, only my mouse and keyboard and every now and then my ipod. I figure the issue is likely either the power supply or the motherboard. The ps is almost two years old while the motherboard is only about three months old.
 

A:Computer wont start, power supply wont start, blinking led

It sounds to me like your PSU is the problem, get a hold of another and plug it to your computer and see if that will make it start, if it doesn't it might be BOTH your motherboard and PSU. A bad PSU will burn a motherboard.

wheni push the buttons theres nothing on the sceen, i can hear the fans,
but there isnt that BEEP sound that i usually hear when i start it up.
the screen is all black, i cant even go into bios.

so i gave it in to repair, they fixed it, said somehting "ROM" n "flash" cant remember

the computer worked for a few times, than the samething happened, no display... im pretty sure its not the monitor.

I have an amd athlon computer, not sure of the specs other than it's XP. The computer was running a bit funny earlier today. It froze 2 times, i restarted and it continued working, till it froze a 3rd time. After the 3rd time it said "verifying dmi pool" and then "press ctrl+alt+del to reboot" and requested i boot of a cd

I tried restarting the computer 3 more times, and now nothing comes up, and i hear the hard drive spin a little, then slow down...spin then slow down..and then everything just stops.

Is it dead? Are there other alternatives? Help!

thanx

A:Verifying DMI pool, now bios wont start

Your HDD has failed. But there may be other hardware that has failed too. Verifying DMI Pool takes place as the computer is accessing the CD/DVD drives.
Shutdown the computer and unplug the HDD and restart the computer. If you get passed the DMI Pool then it's just the HDD that is causing the problem. If you can't go any further, one of the CD/DVD drives may be at fault too. Unplug each of these to see.
You can also remove the HDD from the computer and attach it via a USB Adapter, power it up and see if it spins up and down or if it stays spinning up.

If I leave my computer alone for over 10 mins, the display turns of from non-use.

Sometimes, as usual, if you move the mouse it will turn back on normally.

Most of the time recently - and only since I got my Windows 10 update, but that may just be coincidental - when the display turns off, it seems the computer goes to sleep. If you shake the mouse, press the power button etc - it looks like its starting up again but it never completely gets there. The power up button will light up, the wifi sign will go orange and the computer will make a noise, but only for a few seconds before they stop and the lights switch back off. Then after a few seconds it tries to turn back on again, fails and repeats. I could leave it doing that for ages and it'll just be on repeat. It doesn't matter what I click, nothing helps it start up properly.

(Not sure if this matters, but if I left the Caps Lock button on before the display turns off, the light stays on no matter how many times you press the button. It's like its frozen, along with all the other buttons and screen)

The only way that I can get the computer to start up, is by holding down the power button to force a shut down and then powering back up from the start. Sometimes it'll start back up normally, othertimes it'll say "windows configurating" and sometimes it goes start to a green "restarting" screen after powering up.

Hi

I have been incredibly stupid and changed the settings in my BIOS setup. What is even more stupid is I did this by making it "Load Optimal Defaults" so I dont actually know what has been changed.

As a result of this windows 7 now cannot start, it brings you to the error fixing part where it searches for errors, cant find any and offers you some more options including system restore. Ive done a system restore but that has also not fixed it. I have little idea how to fix this, windows 7 was working perfectly until I changed the BIOS, but not knowing what was changed means I cant change it back.

The BIOS version is: 4core1600twins-p35 p1.40

Any help would be immensely appreciated. Thank you very much!

Rhodri

A:Changed BIOS settings now Windows 7 wont start

Hi Rhodri and welcome to Windows 7 Forums

This should be quite easy to fix. All you need to do is to reset the BIOS to its defaults. Boot up and enter your BIOS. You are looking for an option to reset it to its defaults (this is NOT the same as Optimal Defaults). Alternatively, remove and replace the motherboard battery - this will cause all settings to be lost from the BIOS, so you need to make a note of your current settings on a piece of paper so that you can restore them afterwards. This will include the date and time. For details on how to do this, the location of the battery and whether or not there is a motherboard jumper that accomplishes the same thing, see your motherboard manual. Please ensure that your system is unplugged from the mains whilst you do this.

Hello,

Today I noticed that I could not open my start menu with neither the windows button, ctrl + esc, or a click of the mouse. I've also had a problem the last couple of days saving/opening files in one of the programs I used to make music. I tried to go into safe mode to do system restore, but the safe mode didn't boot. It scrolled all the system files on the screen but then just stopped and nothing happened.

So, I tried the other option (forget what it's called) that lets you perform various other system restoration tasks. I brought up the system restore screen from there, but got an error that said something about corrupt files so it could not perform the restore. I checked again, and all my restore points had been deleted.

Lastly, when I click computer, all the drives are blank with no names beside them, only the icons. I can still click them and they seem to be functioning normally, so I don't know if there is a relation to this. I don't know if some registry files were deleted or if there is some other problem. I didn't notice the start menu/safe mode/blank icon issues until I just recently installed the latest windows update.

Sorry if this seemed a little long winded, but I would appreciate help from anyone.

Thanks,

Do you notice if the screen flashes a quick blue before it restarts?If it does, go back to the Safe Mode menu and select instead Disable automatic restart on system failure. The computer will try then to boot normally. If booting should fail and 'bluescreen', the PC will display it instead of rebooting.

After only just having one problem solved on here I have encountered another and I think it is fairly problematic but am far from understanding it - please help!!!

I downloaded the new version of Internet Explorer (version 8) as this was an option when I signed onto the web this afternoon (I previously had IE 7 and am running Windows XP version 2).

But after downloading this I had trouble getting onto the net (though I seemed to be able to initially). So I restarted the PC. But, it did not restart.

Instead I get the following message on a plain black screen when I try to run my computer:

Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt:
<Windows root>\system32\hal.dll.
Please re-install a copy of the above file.

What is this file? I have an Acer Aspire notebook which came installed with Windows XP Version 2 (I have no CD drive currently).

I have looked on the microsoft website (I am currently on a different PC) but dont understand anything that is posted on their about this problem.

Do I need to re-install a new operating system? Will this mean I will loose all my data that is on my computer? This is very precious to me as I am travelling and I have saved on my computer photos and diary entries - I would be very upset to loose them.

What is my best course of action? Should I take it to a specialist. Again I really hope I can prevent the information that I did have saved on there from being deleted.

I cant log into safe mode so cant install any fixing program either to run it through cmd (thats the only thing i have access to) system restore cant help cause pc say there is no restore point but last time i was able to power on pc without problems it updated some files and made a restore point when done and that was weird when it didnt find any rp. Please I need some help here since im running out of resources. Hopefully someone can help me. Thanks

Hi, using windows 7, have a blue screen at start up issue, memory dump. Sadly the PC wont start so unable to try too much, it lets you select user, attempts to ,log onto the user then just goes to mthe blue screen and starts the cycle again. Any ideas?? It will not start in safe mode either, basically the same result although sometimes it loads and you are in but when you try to do anything it goes to the blue screen again. I did get the error code (not always the same on the blue screen but this one comes up most time), "driver IRQL not less or equal"
Many thanks
Tony

I am experiencing the following very strange intermittent problems and evil behavior in XP.

My Start Menu sometimes only appears for a split second when clicked and will not stay displayed. Also minimised apps. wont maximise and apps. and short cuts on the desktop wont launch when double left clicked and instead show properties as if they were right clicked!!

I have done the following to try and resolve these issues.

1. Updated from SP1 to SP 2 as well as all the security updates.

2. Ran Adaware and Spybot to find any unwelcome visitors. Adaware only found one minor issue.

3. Ran Symantec Antivirus which found and quarantined several viruses.

4. Ran WinDoctor which found and said it resolved quite a few issues.

This is really a pain as it makes the system virtually unusable except for when it is behaving which is rare.

Would be grateful for any suggestions, solutions, incantations or workarounds for this issue/s

Kind regards

Hi there, my problem is quite odd. When I open IE I get the "Page cannot be displayed" page as though i'm not connected but when I click refresh the page opens no problem. Sometimes I need to click refresh a couple of times. It's nothing to do with my homepage as it happens with different sites.
Sometimes it doesn't matter how many times i click refresh, it wont display and my connection is still active, I know that because I was chatting on MSN Messenger once when it happened and the connection icon beside my clock is always on.

Any suggestions?
 

A:Page wont display

Try checking (or even unchecking) "automatically detect settings" in Internet Options > Connections for your web connection.

The issue started out with IE 7 shutting down on occasion from a few sites (sorry dont remember the message it was giving me). I pretty much just dealt with it and just went along with my business. Now it won't even load, its giving me the can't display page issue. Reluctantly I downloaded the update to IE 8 and still the same thing.

EDIT TO ADD Did try a SpyJacker Search and Destroy and still have the issue

Sometime with in the last week my browser has quit displaying the hotmail webpage as well as the sign in page for it. I cannot even create a new account as I cannot view the sign in page. When the page loads it is just a blank white page and has an error sign at the bottom of the browser. I have done quite a bit of searching on the internet, tried many things from re-registering my javascript, to changing the security settings in my tools. When I click the error msg. this is what I get "Webpage error detailsUser Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 8.0; Windows NT 6.1; Trident/4.0; FunWebProducts; GTB6.6; SLCC2; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; .NET CLR 3.5.30729; .NET CLR 3.0.30729; Media Center". I have even reinstalled my IE to no avail. I have had my email addy for about 10 yrs now and hate to have to lose it all together. I would use it thru outlook or incredimail, but my account seems to have been hacked and it needs to be recovered which can only be done via the website.
