Windows 7 won't reboot, beeping sounds.

January 10, 2012 at 16:42:27
Specs: Windows 7, 1.00GB
I was on youtube when my computer froze, so I restarted it. As it was rebooting (still black screen) it emitted a long beep sound over and over.

So I turned off the computer and switched off the power at the wall too. I rebooted the computer 10 mins later and this time there was a long beep sound then a repitition of short beeps and showed this message,

The file is possibly corrupt. The file header checksum does not match the computed checksum.

I restarted again and now Im running windows 7 on safe mode.

I really have no idea about BIOS, graphic cards etc (I don't even know where they're located!) Please help D:

All the computer specs i could find with Speccy were:

Processor: AMD Sempron (tm) Processor LE-1200 2.10GHZ

RAM: 1.00GB

System type: 32bit...

I formatted my computer 2days ago and reinstalled windows 7.

Look up your Beep Code either on your online manual or here:

Explain why you formatted and reinstalled W7.
How did you reinstall? From Recovery partition or disks OR Windows 7 install disk? It matters, if from install disk you need to load drivers also.
More details please.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

I had to format and reinstall because the system was running way too slow, (e.g. programmes and files not responding each time they were opened)

I reinstalled using a windows 7 install disk

"the system was running way too slow"

You're running Win7 with a single core Sempron & only 1GB RAM, what do you expect, blazing speed? I suggest you go back to XP until you have a system that's capable of running Win7 decently.
