Critical error how to put a ''critical error'' on personal computer


Answers :

A "critical error" could be caused by many things: Faulty RAM, a bad cable, overheating, faulty power supply, corrupted hard drive, damaged circuit trace on motherboard, and others. To fix, try removing the hard drive and trying a known-good unit, if possible. Format and do a clean system install on the replacement drive. This way you may be able to salvage data from the old drive once you get the system back online. Also make sure all RAM and any expansion cards in the system are fully seated. If this process doesn't help, you are probably dealing with a faulty cable or bad RAM. In my experience, the possible culprits are as follows, starting with the most likely:\015\012
\015\0121.Faulty/corrupted hard drive\015\0122.Faulty drive cable\015\0123.Bad RAM\015\0124.Faulty power supply (can cause drive corruption)\015\0125.Bad motherboard\015\0126.Incorrectly seated/faulty peripheral cards\015\0127.Bad CPU\015\012
\015\012If you can describe the circumstances surrounding this failure, or if any upgrades or other service were performed recently, these will be clues as to the source of the error. Please post them if available.
