View Full Version : HELP!!!! Total Computer Crash
08-31-2003, 10:04 PM
I am running a P4 3.0 with 2000mb of Ram and a ATI Radeon 9000 128mb. After I install FS2004 everthing works great. Then I turn my computer off and when it resarts the next time it will get to the opening page of windows xp for 1 second, a blue screen will flash for about a half second and then the computer restarts. This will be repeated until I turn the computer off manually. The only way the computer will turn on is if I leave the FS2004 cd in the drive upon restart. Does anyone know what is wrong? Please help!!!

Kinda sounds like one of the recent "worms" that have been circulating.

First thing to try is try loading Windows in Safe Mode. I believe the F9 key is the one you want to push(F8 if that is not right) right after your BIOS information goes by and before the Windows boot screen appears. If you can get into SafeMode successfully, then you can work from there using MSCONFIG utility to narrow down the culprit. I'd do all this without any CD's in, even though it should not matter.
P.S. How did you end up with 200MB RAM especially with a top of the line processor? You should be running 512MB at a minimum with that much processing power.
