    This problem is caused by a hardware failure in the computer. Check to see if the power supply and motherboard are working when powering up your pc. If the power supply and motherboard are working perfectly fine then probably the problem will be on the processor. There are some ways to fix this but it depends on what is wrong with the processor. Before i give you the solution to your problem pls check the power supply and the mother board and give me the feedback

    Try also to check configuration of bootable devices by making cd rom as First Bootable Device. Also insure Your Current Cd Rom it work properly other wise it need to change. Finally you have to be satisfying yourself if the window cd is in form bootable cd?.

    Inaweza kuwa ni tatizo la hardware au operating system ila kabla ya kufanya chochote jaribu kuingia kwenye BIOS (press F2) halafu load default settings then save and exit. Kama tatizo likiendelea basi jaribu haya...

    Operating system.
    Njia rahisi kujua kama tatizo ni operating system ni ku-run linux live CD kama ita boot basi operating sytem yako mbovu

    Hardware

    Wakati mwingine kama umehamisha hamisha box lako (computer) kutoka sehemu moja hadi nyingine, components za ndani (memory, graphic card n.k.) zinaweza kusogea na vivyo kuleta error wakati computer yako inafanya self test (power on self-test).

    Kawaida wakati wa kufanya POST computer yako ita kuambia tatizo ni nini kwa ku-beep. Chakufanya ni kusikiliza hizo beep, ili kujua zinasema nini, zinaweza kuwa two short beeps, three long beeps n.k depending on MOBO (mother board) manufacturing specs. Ukishajua search POST on google uone hizo beep zinasema nini.

    Kama ulichoambiwa na watalam wengine kisiposiaidia jaribu kubadlisha na monitor. Maana ukisema its blinking(chenga chenga) ni dalili ya mamtizo ya monitor na kompyuta.

    Otheri wise kama kwenye screen unaona ujumbe uandike hapa au kama ukiwasha huoni kitu na unasikia Beeps mbili au tatu au nne , ect basi dondosha maelezo hapa
