System manufacturer and model?

Have you checked your system manufacturer's website...to try to find out the significance of the beep codes which you hear?

Error messages onscreen...indicating problems...before it began to fail to boot?

Let's try this.

Download/install BlueScreenView, http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/blue_screen_view.html .

Double-click BlueScreenView.exe file.

When autoscan is done (screen comes up), click Edit/Select All...then File/Save Selected Items.

Save the report as BSOD.txt.

Open BSOD.txt in Notepad, copy all content and paste it into your next reply.

If it opens to a blank screen...that just indicates that there are no BSOD messages where they are expected to be found.

Let's try a search (Start/Search) of all files and folders (with all file extensions viewable and including system files)...for any *.dmp files.

1) What is new or different since the last time everything worked properly (ie, new hw, new sw, virus, error, etc)?

2) Can you boot to safe mode?

Thanks


Ok my computer hasn't done it lately. But i did disconnect some of the usb cables and accessories. Not sure if that was the problem. What i am probably thinking is that my power supply is not capable of pushing everything i have. Not sure. I havent plugged everything back yet but will do it soon.

Let me know if u have anymore questions. Thanks for ir help

That could be the problem as an indication. What are these peripherals connected?

What is the complete specs of your PC? I also have an old XP system with a 300 Watts PSU with different devices connected but have never bluescreens. The difference on yours is the external optical drive and bluetooth device. Without the Bluescreen error, might wanna start with elimination or isolating the problem first from the external devices (being) connected before recommending a higher PSU. Look also for system log events usually found in Control Panel. They contain details related to bluescreen errors by expanding each event logs with x marks. I forgot how exactly to go there but look around for system log events or something...

What hardware or software changes when the BSOD occured? Most BSOD are caused by RAM modules. If you have 2 sticks or more installed on your computer, diagnose by alternately removing one until the bluescreen reappears. Does BSOD occur with or without these external devices installed?

it happens with or without external divices installed. what i did do this time that when it was beeping i turned the computer off and then tapped on the little fan inside the one close to the motherboard and then it turned on like nothing happened. at all. could it be that theres something lose there? regarding the ram i had removed the ram before and reinstalled it but i didnt switch location. should i do that?

thank you

Atleast use one slot only for determining if one of the sticks is faulty that causes your bluescreen.

turned the computer off and then tapped on the little fan inside the one close to the motherboard and then it turned on like nothing happened. at all. could it be that theres something lose there?

Is it the power supply exhaust fan or tower's exhaust fan?
