Special useage fujitsu m2537m-19B

Hi there, I need to know the jumper settings, and the correct way to install a connecting wire from a fujitsu m2537m-19B to a data acquisition card. The Ribbon cable and the power harness are hooked up in the usual way, but there are two wires, black and white, that need to be connected to the floppy. Here's where they're approximately supposed to go, but I'm pretty sure that someone has played with them a bit, since the ribbon cable was on backward.

st2
x x 3
x x 2 DS
DG .o o o o 1
RY o o o o 0


The o's represent pins, the x's are bare solder spots with no pins, and of course 0,1,2,3 are pin designations that must have some meaningful purpose! This cluster of pins, etc is right next to the power connector. The pin in row DG, marked "~" traces back to pin 34 on the connector for the Ribbon cable. The pins in the second column of rows DG and RY trace back into the main part of the unit, and the left pins in DS, o0, o1, o2, o3, and the right o3, all trace back behind the floppy connector between pins 10 and 20, where they meet up with a bunch of little resistors marked 102. I know this is a big hassle over a stupid floppy drive, but it is for a smog machine and must be booted from the floppy. I've tried other drives but they don't work because of the proprietary nature of the machine. !!!!!!!!!!!!!! By the way I'm assuming that this is a 1.44 mb drive. Thanks a million.

What wireless router can i get that is compatible with my T180


I know for a fact that a netgear router is compatible, because I have one but honestly any wireless router, regardless of brand, should work for you, provided it is set up correctly and your wireless card/adapter on you computer is setup correctly (i.e. drivers loaded, turned on, etc.). Let me know if you have any questions.

I need to know what order to put the wires from the mother Bord to the floppy drive to the cd Rom\burner to the hard drives


The floppy drive has it own data cable and does not connect to the same cable as the hard drive and CD ROM/R-W drive.
If the hard drive and CD drive are IDE devices, then the hard drive should be the connected to the connector at the end of the IDE cable and the jumper on the hard drive set to Master. The CD drive should be connected to the middle connector and its jumper set to Slave. The other end connector should be connected to the Primary IDE connector on the motherboard.

I JUST INSTALLED A SEAGATE 500G INTERNAL DRIVE DO I NEED TO DOWNLOAD A DRIVER FOR THIS


I've never heard of downloading a driver for a internal hard drive. What I do know is that you have to make sure that the jumper is on the correct connections. example if your main harddrive is a master then you should put the jumper on the two pins that read slave. If you have a sata harddrive then you would just have to connect the data cable and the power cable without doing any jumper settings. well hope this helps.

I have Integrated sound card but there is no sound or vol. icon control appear on my widows and on device manager their is an yellow exlamination mark


hi im josh in cebu phils.may i help you? Friend try to use these solutions of mine it will help you for sure Problem: Your New Sound Card Doesn't Work—You Don't Get Any Sound Let's look at the simple stuff first. Is the card installed properly in your system unit? Have you connected the audio cable from your sound card to your CD-ROM/DVD drive? Are speakers (or headphones) hooked up to the card? Are the speakers plugged in and turned on? (And are they plugged into the correct jack? You don't want to plug your speakers into your microphone jack!) Are you performing a task on your PC that actually produces sound? Is the volume turned up loud enough (both on your speakers and in Windows)?
Okay, now that the easy stuff is out of the way, let's turn to something more difficult. The most likely cause of no sound is some sort of conflict. One by one, change your card's DMA, IRQ, and port settings. (This might entail resetting some jumpers on the card itself, as well as making some software-based changes.)
This problem can also occur if you add a new sound card to a system that has sound capabilities built into the motherboard. You'll need to disable the onboard sound before the new sound card can work.
Problem: Your New Sound Card Crashes Your System If you've just installed your sound card, you might not have the card properly installed. Check your installation (is the card properly seated and connected?) and then reboot your system.
If this doesn't fix it, you have something wrong in your setup. Check your software setup to make sure you have the same DMA, IRQ, and port assignments as selected on your sound card itself (usually via DIP switches or jumpers). If the settings are correct, you probably have a conflict of some kind. You should methodically change the DMA, IRQ, and port assignments in Windows so that they don't conflict with the assignments for other devices on your system. thats all friend good luck hope i helped you.

Trubleshoot Motherboard


More than 70% of all computer problems are related to cabling and connections. Ensure all cables are connected and connected firmly. IDE and floppy ribbon cables and power cables can often go loose. Ensure microprocessor, memory modules, and adapters such as video card are inserted correctly and didn't "pop-up" due to vibration.
System has no power at all. Power light does not illuminate, fan inside the power supply does not turn on, and indicator light on keyboard does not turn on. PROBABLE CAUSE DIAGNOSIS SOLUTION
Power cable is unplugged. Visually inspect power cable. Make sure power cable is securely plugged in.
Defective power cable. Visual inspection, try another cable. Replace cable.
Power supply failure. Power cable and wall socket are OK, but system is still dead. Contact technical support
Faulty wall outlet;circuit breaker or fuse blown. Plug device into socket know to work and test. Use different socket, repair outlet, reset circuit breaker or replace fuse.



System inoperative. Keyboard lights are on, power indicator lights are lit, and hard drive is spinning. PROBABLE CAUSE DIAGNOSIS SOLUTION
Expansion card is partially dislodged from expansion slot on the motherboard. Turn off computer. Take cover off system unit.
Check all expansion cards to ensure they are securely seated in slots. Using even pressure on both ends of the expansion card, press down firmly on expansion card.
Defective floppy disk drive or tape drive. Turn system off.
Disconnect the cables from one of the floppy drives. Turn on the system, check to see if the keyboard operates normally. Repeat until you have located defective unit. Contact Technical Support.
Defective expansion card. Turn computer off.
Remove an expansion card. Make sure expansion card is secure in expansion socket.



System does not boot from hard disk drive, can be booted from floppy disk drive. PROBABLE CAUSE DIAGNOSIS SOLUTION
Connector between hard drive and system board unplugged. When attempting to run the FDISK utility described in the HARD DISK section of the manual you get a message, INVALID DRIVE SPECIFICATION. Check cable running form disk to disk controller on the board. Make sure both ends are securely plugged in; check the drive type in the Standard CMOS Setup (in your motherboard manual).
Damaged Hard Disk or Disk Controller. Format hard disk; if unable to do so, the hard disk may be defective. Contact Technical Support.
Hard Disk directory or FAT is scrambled. Run the FDISK program, format the hard drive(See HARD DRIVE section of manual). Copy your backup data back onto hard drive. Backing up the hard drive is extremely important. All Hard Disks are capable of breaking down at any time.

A number of causes could be behind this. Use a file by file backup instead of an image backup to backup the Hard Disk. Back up any salvageable data. Then do a low level format, partition, and high level format of the hard drive( see Hard Disk section of your manual for instructions). Re-install all saved data when completed.



Disk formatted on IBM PS/2 will not operate with this system. PROBABLE CAUSE DIAGNOSIS SOLUTION
The IBM PS/2 uses a different format than other computers. IBM PS/2 disk format will not work in an AT type computer. Format disk in the AT type computer insert disk into the IBM PS/2 and copy the files you wish.



After install an expansion card (network card, tape drive card, etc.) the system no longer works properly. PROBABLE CAUSE DIAGNOSIS SOLUTION
No power to monitor. All or part of the system may be inoperable. The new card may work but a mouse or COM port may not work. Change the interrupt or RAM address on the new expansion card. See the documentation that came with the new card in order to change pin settings. many expansion devices come with proprietary software that will assist you in doing this.

I recently upraded my computer with an Asrock Penryn1600SLI-110dB motherboard with an Intel CORE 2 DUO E4600 processor. The symptoms are: When I tried to boot for the first time the cpu and case...


Hi,

If you have recently upgraded your motherboard and when you turn it on, there is no display. You could check the jumper setting of your motherboard.

http://download.asrock.com/manual/PENRYN1600SLI-110DB.pdf

Check this site for jumper settings. Download the manual. Go first to page 11 and find clear CMOS jumper. That will be number 17. Then go to page 24 for the correct jumper settings. Jumper should be on the pins 1 and 2. That's the default settings.

If the jumper is set already to 1 and 2. Clear the CMOS by putting the jumper on 2 and 3. It should be off when you are going to set the jumper. This is to make sure that the settings for your motherboard is set to its original settings.

If you are going to clear the CMOS settings, you will have turn the computer on after clearing it and then turn it off again. Put the jumper back to pins 1 and 2. Now make sure that computer is totally off. Uplugged the computer just to make sure when you are doing this.

Note:
To test also the motherboard if it is working, do not connect the other pheriperals such as network card, sound card, and other cards that is not buit-in. Also drives such as Hard Drive and CDROM drives.

Check for beep codes. Short beeps tells you that the Video card is not inserted properly. Long beeps tells you that the memory card is not in place correctly.

Just remove the Video card or Memory card and then place it back again.

Computer should be off as well when doing this.
