System failure, memory test on my Desktop


Hi Ryder,

There are a lot of different causes why computers don't startup.

You need to figure out which one is the culprit.

Here are some common reasons:

1. A faulty power supply.

2. IDE power/ HD connector is not connected properly.

3. Ram is not inserted to the slot properly.

4. Viruses/Trojans.

5. Hardware malfunctions.

6. OS malfunction.

You need to determine which of these the cause is so you can fix the problem.

System failure, memory test on my Desktop


Hello mate,

The basic causes to these problems and things to avoid or remember

1.   Always remember to shut down your computer properly. Turning it directly off should cause this problem.

2.   Do not stress out your computer! Playing hardcore 3d games, and at the same time opening other applications will often times hang your computer that will eventually fragment the system data.  Just like human, computer also needs some rest. Turning on your computer the whole day, would depreciate its hardware performance and life (Like battery problem, Power supply, RAM/memory problem etc), 

There are lots of factors that would trouble your computer but I would say the above mentioned scenarios are the most common.

There are couple ways to attack this problem, and these are my better if not the best effective ways.

1.   A. Upon turning on your computer, hold 'Delete' key or 'F10' key (depends on your computer setup). You should be directed to your computer bios. B. Try to diagnose the problem there. There should be a tab that indicates 'troubleshoot'. And follow instructions there. C. After that reset your computer and it should work just fine.

2.   Other ways around is to insert your OS installer disc, Find the word that says repair or anything like that, and trouble shoot it there (just follow the instructions prompted to you). Don't worry you are not going to go to the process of reformatting, if you are afraid, then you might as well backup first your data before diving in to this solution.

3.   If one the hard wares were damaged, you need to replace it. If you are not able to do it, call an IT instead.

4.   If no hardware were damaged, and the 1st and 2nd solution sounds not clear to you. Well, you need to backup your computer. Insert your disc and thoroughly reformat your computer. Call I.T if you're not able to do it. That should solve the problem.

I Hope these dishes, helps you solve the problem.
