If u are sure that the power cables are connected to the power supply very well and not even your power socket failing then there is a problem on your power pack not functioning or the motherboard is bad.then change it and have peace wiith your IBM.bye

IBM netvista PIII type 6579 MNU doesn't boot


Sound like the memory is not compatable, try booting with no memory installed and see if the hard drive appears, if so it's a memory problem.

Netvista pc would not start


Hi there.
If you have brought your machine from a different country and it was working there, then chances are you will need a new power supply that is matched to your countries voltage, most countries have either 240v or 130v, you will have to check into this! be careful however as you can blow the motherboard up if you use the wrong voltage.
My advice would be to purchase another power supply from where you live and install that one.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

I have netvista 6578rbg, it can boot from the hard disk


Hi lyonson, I gather at one time the drive did function with Vista? IBM has some fix on their web site. Click this link below.

http://www.ibm.com/search/?v=14&en=utf&lang=en&cc=us&hpp=10&catx=Y1zkzPzk6z93z46zP7&q=netvista+6578rbg&cp=&lv=c&cat=k6&x=12&y=10
Even if one of these fix's does not match your exact model no# . Try one that is close. If it does not help call IBM. I assure you it is not your PC but Vista. (There has been & will continue to be more down time with MS's Vista than any other previous version of windows to date). If non of IBM's files listed help you, please call IBM from this link. http://www-304.ibm.com/jct03004c/support/operations/us/en/contracts?cm_re=masthead-_-myibm-_-cs-contracts

I wish I could help more but other suggestions involve erasing the drive & that's not a good idea if you have data on it.
I would appreciate it if IBM solves this issue or one of the firmware’s fix your issue & you post the results. I’d call IBM my self if I had all needed information written on the NetVista PC.

Good Luck!
Mike

I have same problem as ninja9er


hi,

First try Using one at a time, since its not advisable to use memory chips with variable bus speeds i.e (333 & 266).
Since IBM Computer are little complicated i would suggest your to call the customer care or Tech support for assistance in buying a Memory module. In that way you can cross check the memory module you have bought is compatible with the computer.

Kindly give a feed back to Improve my statistics and to see If it was helpful for you...

Thanks and Regards
