Terminal Capio 620

Hi,

I have the same problem. I want to run any Linux from USB Stick on my Capio. I've entered inti BIOS but it seems to be old. I think it should be updated and then I will boot my capio from USB (or from CD-ROM plugged thru USB port). But I don't know how to do that!

Maybe You solve Your problem? Please let me know if You solve Your problem! Mail me: lookz@poczta.onet.pl

Thank's

The BIOS don't support USB bootable devices even with the LEGACY option ENABLED (it's only for keyboards or mouse), but ther is a way, open the box and you will notice a IDE heather on the board, the problem is it's not a standard 40 pin IDE heather, it's a mini IDE like for laptop HDD's, so what i did is i've purchessed two IDE adaptors from MINI do standard IDE, spliced the power cable for powering the devices, conected a standard flat 40 pin IDE ribbon cable to both adapters and VOILA i have a verry thin silent computer with a 15GB (MASTER) hard drive and a 52X CDROM (SLAVE), obviously with that hardware i can't close the box anny more but i'm running LINUX (DSL) fine.

cheers!

I have a Neoware CA10, but I can't get into the Bios. In fact, I can't get into anything, no OS, no Bios.


do you hear the speaker beep when power is on?
If no beep first try resetting the BIOS with the use of the jumper inside the unit, if it's still not working, try removing the RAM module, if you hear beep's replace the defective RAM module, if it still not working than sorry IT'S DEAD

Good luck!

Neoware Capio 508 after a short time of running all text under icons is changed into foriegn language?


Is it actually foriegn language? or is it just graphic garbage? I suspect a bad GPU...

First verify if it's not a virus or malware, if not shut down the unit, physicaly open the unit and gently push on the GPU (Graphic Processor Unit) then while holding pressure on the GPU, boot the unit and hold for a longer period of time than when the problem occures, if it goes good, repete the process to make sure it's a cold jointed GPU (cold joint is bad soldering)

OK suppose i'm wright and de GPU is cold jointed, the ownly thing you can do is go to a company that can REFLOW the main board of you'r unit

Hope it's a virus...

Use of USB ports


As i answered an other blog, there is no updates what so ever for capio 620 the ownly interesting thing you can do is turn it into a small PC with a hard drive and a CDROM
The BIOS don't support USB bootable devices even with the LEGACY option ENABLED (it's only for keyboards or mouse), but ther is a way to upgrade to a small LINUX OS, open the box and you will notice a IDE heather on the board, the problem is it's not a standard 40 pin IDE heather, it's a mini IDE like for laptop HDD's, so what i did is i've purchessed two IDE adaptors from MINI do standard IDE, spliced the power cable for powering the devices, conected a standard flat 40 pin IDE ribbon cable to both adapters and VOILA i have a verry thin silent computer with a 15GB (MASTER) hard drive and a 52X CDROM (SLAVE), obviously with that hardware i can't close the box anny more but i'm running LINUX (DSL) fine.

Enjoy!
