Many of us who are computer owners can never escape dilemmas arising from driver failures, audio and video problems, and many different issues. You can now make your life easier and have more things to know to better cope with some of the common computer riddles.

On these series, we are going to discuss about personal computers that don’t boot-up, optical drive booting, understanding weird error messages, and bad driver roll-backing and audio problems troubleshooting.

First, let's focus on booting problems.

Personal computers that don’t boot-up

It will take only a few minutes to detect possible reasons why your PC is unable to boot or power-on. The most possible reasons involved why your computer fails to boot would be that you have tried to boot from a bootable Universal Serial Bus (USB) or optical drive and it all landed to failure. When this happens, all you need to do is to check both power and external cables for you to determine if the screen is on. Your motherboard has a failure on its hardware when you hear noises which come into pattern sounds like it beeps once, followed by two beeps, another two beeps, and then three beeps. For this reason you need to check it out with your Basic Input Output System (BIOS) manufacturer for more assistance on this issue.

You may check if all your mother board cables like hard drive links and power supply are connected properly after opening the box and also you may check on the internal cables if there’s no noise coming from your personal computer. You may remove and reinsert your Random Access Memory (RAM) and test if you can boot with one RAM stick for the time being to check if the RAM is seated on the right way; but if your Random Access Memory is dual, stick is not necessary. You may test if you can sub in your one or more RAM component.

Remember that cheap power supply are failure prone and to check if your personal computer will boot, you may try connecting a back-up power supply to your system and install it inside the box. When it comes to buzzing fans, it may be that your power supply has enough to keep the fan going but no more for the rest of the system. You may try to remove the discrete graphics card and attach to the monitor the integrated graphics connector of your personal computer.

Take note that if the above techniques to fix the booting issue don’t work, you may have a busted Central Processing Unit or bad clusters on your motherboard.

 On the continuation of these series, you’ll be reading about optical drive booting next. So keep on reading for more.
