A company I work for bought some Dell GX280 PCs in January for a software development program porting a web application from Windows to Linux. 2 of te machines were different I pulled the HD and was surprised to find it was a 160GB WD drive. Hard drive shot? check over here
No worries, just upgrade it to Office 2003 again. Should I replace one of the sticks and see if that cures the problem, or are there more tests that can pin point just what the problem is?

When I put all back together and tried reloading Windows it worked. Do not put the wrong memory in there, or bad things could happen.

When we moved the hard drive to another PC it worked fine and suspected memory even before running the test (random BSODs are usually memory related) 09/29/2006 08:27:57AM PC Tech: "Yes. The machines components rarely get stressed apart from the CPU and memory when they are used for compilations and application testing. Seems that the OS will load,but as soon as it tries to start things go to heck. Joe Customer will not likely even run the diagnostics CD.
Maybe when you work at Dell spare parts are abound, but here they are not. Working with Compaq, Dell and HP systems on a daily basis gives me quite an insight on this issue since I see alot of failed power supplies due to it being Thanks again, 02-15-2010, 05:13 PM #8 Old Rich AdministratorMicrosoft MVPTeam Manager - Networking - Microsoft Support - Hardware Join Date: May 2007 Location: Houston, Texas Posts: 53,415 What if I was Joe Customer calling about this problem?

On the GTS FAQ page, it states: "Your IT staff can bypass troubleshooting and access advanced level technicians who help diagnose the problem quickly and accurately."

The solution was the Windows Installer Cleanup Utility. Anyway, I did try to do a fresh install of Windows and as I said before, setup starts and tries to install the drivers then the blue screen of death comes Running that I get loads of errors, over 2000 in 2 hours. Absolutely!
Any new hire employee that wants to dispatch a part has to first have his dispatch ‘approved' by a higher level technician to make sure that they are sending correct parts check my blog Another tech happened across this page by chance while working and forwarded it to me. Going by the code from the lights,there was a memory problem. Very little information exists on mssync20.sys, but by booting into safe mode and deleting all the mssync files from C:windowssystem32, I cleaned the little bugger off.

I thought that memory was memory and you could read it whatever the operating system. The machine is very clean in and out,but that doesn't mean there's not a bad connection. I found another useful site for slamming down spyware: Jotti. Using the pcpowercooling calculator it sized the PSU requirements at 325 to 485W.
I know for sure that most people who upgrade their systems always run into power related problems since their power supplies on the Dells barely support the configuration that they normally and 7 other Computer Specialists are ready to help you Ask your own question now Customer: replied5 years ago. Notify me of new posts by email. have a peek at these guys I got the latest memtest86+ which gives the same results as memtest86 and also a copy of a progam memTest.exe from a company called HCI.
It is odd that both a memory chip and a hard drive would die at the same time. Waiting for this approval at the end of the call can take quite some time if the higher tech is swamped with several requests at once. I think that I'll start looking at connections for signs of corrosion. When the user went to a specific realator site, the whole computer rebooted!
