Atrix CSCI-A9001-C4 giving false alarms and clock faulty

Posted by on

  • jonkape Nov 07, 2008

    I was asked to give more information:
    When I start my PC and shuts down beeps normally but sometimes at startup keeps beeping as if some of the components were overheating.
    I have to press the reset button for the display on the front of the case to stop the beeping. After that I can use my PC with no problems. Also, I adjust the real time on the case display clock but after switching the PC off and on it looses the correct time. Thanking you for your help, jonkape.

    Hi there!

    I did what you recommended but the beeping problem still the same.

    The temperature readings were always OK.

    Thank you, jonkape.

Hi,

Initially, would suggest to check the Lithium backup battery and to reset the CMOS to default. Thereafter, clean and re-seat an add-on cards including the memory modules.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

As for beeping sounds remove the memory (ram) from your motherboard, clean it with cloth and insert it correctly. you can switch the time from the CMOS and also from windows xp itself.

You mean the front panel for TEMP monitoring is giving you wrong readings ?

Disconnect the terminals and do some cleaning then re-connect.

I have a k7mnf-64 socket 462 when I turn on the computer I get an alarm and a red light on the motherboard I have checked ram and every thing else and the only way to stop the alarm is to pull main power,...


"I have checked ram and every thing else" (sic) When you say everything else, I presume you mean with No HD, No DVD, NO "Other" cards in slots, No USB, & just a monitor connected? If yes to all those, then yes I would think that the MB has developed a Fault. The "Red Light" this LED usually signals that the MB is receiving good power, it is NOT a "Fault Light". have you REPLACED the RAM with new ones? You say "Alarm" what exactly is this alarm sound?

On a M8800 phone will the alarm clock work with the phone switched off?


Hello,

The auto power-up feature sets the phone to
automatically turn on and sound the alarm at
the designated time if the phone is turned
off.

Hope it helped.

I have a F-4210 Deskjet printer (HP) that was working properly ,and the ink level is well above the half mark when suddenly it stoped printing and indicated that it was a incompatible cartridge.?


This is the type of problem that occurs with aftermarket cartridges. If it is an aftermarket cartridge, I would replace the cartridge giving the false reading. The best solution is to use and OEM cartridge to clear the problem.
If you can, take the balking cartridge back to the vendor and get a replacement.

Looks like a hard drive failure- simple as that. You can try a number of things but as far as my experiance goes the hard drive is dead. You either need a new hard drive or better a new computer.

Dont want to give false hopes...
