I don't know what the trouble is. What could I do?
It's an IBM Thinkcentre. I can't even boot into anything since it freezes in the middle of booting.
Computer specs, please. Ram, processor speed, ect ect.
ATI 128mb video card: radeon x700 series
pentium 4 @ 3.4 ghz
overheated motherboard? cables in wrong positions?
might be a few things that causing it.. check it out
What is the last thing it displays before freezing? Text, or the windows startup screen?
is your computer overclocked?
No not overclocked.
Solved the issue; it was a hardware problem. I don't know specifics, most likely overheating, there was lots of dust when I opened it up. I just vaccuumed and re connected everything. I suspect the video card.
Purely hardware issue.
I would consider that an overheating problem cause if it was hardware, even after vacuumning it, it will still not work. It's always a good practice to keep your computer components free of dust buildup by vacuuming the components or dusting them off regularly. For notebooks, always make sure the fan chasis is clear of dust. If your cooling fan is starting to give you problems and making funny noises, then it's best to check out the dust buildup. You'll be amazed how much dust actually got into that comp of yours in just a few months of use depending on your surrounding and environment.
yeah dust is a huge issue with comptuers as it doesn't allow the heat to escape the heatsink so the heat sink fails it's job. Try to clean it out once every month or 2 months. My computer has a few expensive parts in it like the 8800GTX so I keep all the dust out of my useing dust filters the cover the intake fans on it.
Thanx for the tips guys. But I followed the thread & thought it would have been an issue with
1. The HDD
2. The CPU Fan.
Shows I could be wrong though..
