Question about Systemax Computers & Internet

Open Question

I have a systemax computer serial #106279177. It will not boot up. I placed the diagnostic cd to test and completed that. Re-tried and it did not boot. The message states to place the cd. When i do it repeats the the same process. press R to restart or T to test. I have done this several times with no success. Any ideas?

    Did the diagnostic test check the Hard drive? Were there any errors?

Download the drive test for the hard drive. Put the drive in your other computer and run the test. If it test good on simple test do the long test. IF IT COMES OUT FINE, Run the Zero program and then try to install the O.S. Check your BIOS settings and make sure everything is set right. You are on the right track. You just did not know how to test the drive. If it is a Toshiba you will not find a hard drive test. You might be able to use the Maxtor or Seagate drive test. Use the windows version if you can. If you can't do any of the test, right click on the drive and check for errors.

Rate me if this helped.

SOURCE: 1801 Microcode Patch Error

I bought a Compaq Computer, 2.0Ghz, 256MB, 20GB for my College project. When i put the power on, it restarts almost immediately (so many times repeatedly). Then after such reboots, it successfully brings a message "1801 - Microcode Patch Error" and a F1-Boot directive.

Yvon,

It sounds as if your restore partition has become corrupted. You vcan Contact Dell and order a restore disk

As far as trying to Install from Install CD goes. Well Win XP does NOT recognize SATA drives natively. You have to install the sata drivers to get them to appear. You can download them from the link below.
http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&ServiceTag=&SystemID=XPS/DIMENSION%20400/9150&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid=
If you have a floppy drive, this is easy just copy to a floppy. Then during the install WinXP says something to the effect of "Press F6 to install 3rd party or RAID drivers" hit <F6> and direct it to the drivers on the floppy.

You should now be able to complete your WinXP install.
If you don't have a floppy drive post back here and we'll try to see if we can get the drivers in there another way.

Thanks
Dave

Need restore CD


Step 1:
It's possible to recover from that mistake and decompress the drive from outside Windows. You must follow these instructions carefully. First we need to reach the Repair Your Computer region. Download and burn this disc. Windows Vista Recovery Environment ISO X86 version (32 bit) If you can't get it there any longer, you can purchase one for $10 here. High-Speed Repair CD Downloads In case you don't know how to burn ISO files to CD, download the free BurnCDCC burning program from here. TeraByte Unlimited Freeware After you've burned the CD, test that you can boot from it. You may need to use F12 during boot to select the optical drive. After you've verified that, we can proceed.

When I am typing all of a sudden a menu pops up as if I used the left mouse button, it continues to happen, then at times it is hard to remove it


Well you can disable the touchpad and use a usb mouse. Some laptops have a switch to disable but most you need to get into the bios and disable it from there.
