From a bad stick of ram to bad caps on the mainboard to bad cables to failing other hardware. The clue can be it's not the hard disk. How would you test the rest of the machine?
Also, can you unplug any and all USB things? What else can you do without to find out what it is?
Hello everyone, I need help with a situation. My brother has a computer that will not load. When turned on it goes straight to the screen that asks if you want to start normall, safe mode and whatever. I have tried to use F10 to recover system it continues to boot to same screen. It will not enter into any mode, safe or otherwise. Here is the kicker, when I used his hard drive in my system, I was able to recover it to factory conditon, however, it still will not work in his system, it loads that same screen abut which mode you want to start in. Then I received a blue screen of death message about preventing damage to the computer and so forth. In what direction should I go from here?
