Question about IBM Aptiva E 572 (2174572) PC Desktop

1 Answer

Ok, I'm trying to help my dad, he's got an IBM aptiva 2174 model 572 s/n am71xp2. He's in AZ and I'm in CT. He said he got it to turn on the other day, used it, then shut it off and now it wont' turn on. Is there a manual or exploded parts view of the cords and such so i can walk him through it?

The cords etc only fit one way in one place... exploded parts view on computer equipment ? forget it, how do you think us technical guys survive ? :) seriously though, try checking the power delivery from the power cord before it plugs into the transformer, then check if the transformer is delivering power... voltage meter and common sense not to electrocute yourself ( or your dad in this case ) would be wise. further remove the battery and see if it works with the mains plugged in without a battery ( faulty battery perhaps )

Its more than likely the transformer though and these can be purchased at reasonable proces either at a dedicated IBM aftermarket parts supplier, IBM themselves or trawl the net...


good luck

I install window8 on my ibm model 75G but it has no sound and network


Windows 8 doesn't have your Aptiva 75G Drivers included natively. You'll have to install the drivers either by using the driver disk that came with your PC, OR, go to IBMs website and download your sound and network drivers on another computer and put them onto a flash drive.

I would recommend the website solution, that way you have the latest drivers.

Go to www.google.com and type: "Ibm Aptiva Support or Lenovo Support" in the search (without the quotes). Go to their drivers and download site, enter your computer's model and operating system. Look for Manuals or Documents on the site to download.

I have an old ibm aptiva with usb port nad trying ot transfer files to external hard drive, however it doesnt recognize the harddrive, what can i do?


Depending on the external drive (try it in another computer first) the case may be bad. You can purchase an IDE cable at your local computer store, take the hard drive out of the case, plug it in directly, and voila!

I Need a power supply cord and a keyboard and mouse


If it's a desktop 98% of them all use the same power plug. Just call any local computer repair shop and they'll sell you one for hopefully no more than $5.

My dad's computer won't turn on


chessmaster2 has some good points... you need to make sure your computer is getting power first... a lot of motherboards have a tiny green light that is on when computers are plugged in but off. If you are not sure what a mother board is, then you probably can't do much more than what chessmaster2 gave you. By the way, if this computer is old, the majority of computer problems that you've described are because the power supply is bad. A lot of people don't regularly (2x a year) blow out the dust from their computer. So it collects dusts which then block the ventilation holes, so things overheat and go out, and typically that is the power supply.

IBM Aptiva and verizon DSL


OK Win98 doesn't play well with USB, when Win98 came out USB was very new, and NOT supported properly untill Win98SE... and even then it is a pain and real problematical. I would suggest you get a Ethernet connected DSL modem.. Else ya gonna have no end of problems regardless of what ya do including "Flashing" I think that model PC has Ethernet built in? otherwise get a PCI Ethernet Card and use that instead of USB.. ya be good to go. I would also upgrade if possible to Win98SE PLUS install ALL Updates there are still Win98 suport on the net, simply Google for it.. good Luck.
