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.

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.

Why does my soleil sun alarm clock keep shutting off


It could be adaptor lead or it could be a faulty socket where it plugs in (most likely, especially if it's been tripped over).

Without further examination with a multimeter it's hard to say.

Ademco motion detector false alarms


Aside from any sensitivity adjustments, after all a false alarm caused by falling objects, pets or juicy bugs is not a false alarm..it's an environmental mismatch of sensor to the area, some motion detector false alarms are caused by circuit faults, possibly during the install, where the wire terminals were turned too hard and twisted slightly and are not as solid as the manufacturer intended. This twisted terminal mount could cause false alarms when either the power circuit or the sensor circuit loses continuity. Intermittent power (caused by weak/loose/nicked/damaged wiring, a weak terminal on the board or power supply problems could cause annoying faults that are hard to trace. Diligence and a good eye to spot these problems and correct them will help you determine the cause of false alarms.

In the case of wireless devices, troubleshooting is usually limited to spotless battery contacts, good batteries and proper placement.

Are there any reported problems with the Firez 21007624 carbon monoxide detector false alarms?


I do not know of any reported problems specific to the Kidde CO/smoke alarm, but I spent a significant part of my career servicing toxic gas sensors and can give you some general advice:

1- Most important: treat an alarm as a REAL alarm and DO NOT suspect that your alarm is a "false alarm". My experience has been that most "false alarms" ARE REAL and the source needs to be identified! With Carbon Monoxide detectors, it is usually a blocked vent for a gas fired appliance- a hot water heater, furnace, or oven. Call your fire department or a service professional to make sure that there is no carbon monoxide. They have portable detectors that will be able to double check your alarm.

My advice to you at this moment is to act as if you have a real alarm condition and do not place you or others in a life threatening situation. Ventilate the room/ apartment/house IMMEDIATELY!

I will post more after I send this because you may be in a life threatening situation!

Reset clock


Hi there.
I believe that your clock is automatic. It jumps to the signal from the atomic clock somewhere in your area, every hour.
Could be false signal from somewhere.

Atrix 9006-C4 Black Midi Case 520W fitting for lcd display


There will be "headers" on the motherboard for some case fans. Look for 2/3 pin connections on the board marked "sysfn" or something similar. Any other fans you will have to fit to a spare Molex power connector from the power supply ... you can buy 2 or 3 way "splitter" cables to give you more power connections from one Molex for this purpose. BTW make sure you connect the cpu fan to the "cpu fn" header !!!!! That one is rather important :-P

My alarm keeps going off


Hi,

Most alarms would kick off only when triggered or when faulty.
triggered - could refer to even false triggering, that is even if no intrusion, the sensors senses something and falsely triggers the alarm. This is the most common cause.
Almost all alarms make use of the door switch (the same door switch that triggers the dome light). Since these switches are more prone to being wet, dirtied or accumulate dust and grime, they are more prone to be the culprits. In most instances, it is a matter of remove, clean and reinstall. In some cases, it could be the wire 9to these switches) that were crinked by the door, panel or any metal part thus creating a short to the ground;
Another possibility is the alarm itself. Most alarms have a logic circuitry with external sensors to provide state/condition of its sensors. It is a simple low/high condition. Dust, weather condition (dampness, cold) could affect the sensitivity, electrical characteristic and therefore be falsely triggered. For this, it would require familiarity with electronic circuitry and components, use of a DVM and perhaps even a soldering iron. Should you be uncomfortable performing a DIY, then perhaps your best bet would be to seek the services of a qualified electronics professional.

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.
