Question about IBM POWER SUPPLY 8565/80 64F3693 Power Supply

Debian install failed

I'm trying to install debian on an old IBM PC 350. The installation kept failing several times, so i took the hard drive put it in a different computer and installed it without a problem, stuck the hard drive back in the PC 350 and it starts up, gets past the grub loader and starts to load debian, then restarts.

You might try running one of the live cd distributions to see if the machine hardware is supported that way. You do need a minimum of 128 MB of ram, might be 192 for a live system. It could just be that the system doesn't have enough ram to run Debian, that would explain why it wouldn't finish installation, and why it fails to load now. Check the readme and release notes for minimum system requirements. Maybe you would do better with a leaner distro like DSL?

My acer AX 1200 continually tries to start up and then shuts down. Is this the power supply?


Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your "((MOTHERBOARD TO YOUR HARD DRIVE))" make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error even something as small as a faulty electrical extension or fan lead can cause this problem

follow the troubleshooting procedure a computer needs all of the data and electrical current to travel through every device and to have an end to be able work properly

a motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive if its a flat ribbon 40 pin type IDE replace it this will be the first to fail check all electrical extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd floppy drives need to have current go through make sure these drives are working also it could be a dirty computer clean all of the dust from your computer you could use a vacuum cleaner but whatever you use make absolutely sure there is no moisture gets to anything in your computer

hope this helps

Nothing happens when ON button is pressed, only green light on power supply is on. The fan is not running either. Preceeding this event, computer will run only whe I kept ON button for several seconds.

Test or replace your PSU power supply unit preferably with a heavy duty one with plenty of wattage remembering that with any added hardware your computer will use more power/wattage eg:more RAM ,bigger hard drive,slave drive

One bad/faulty lead can cause a computer with lots of problems continually rebooting or failing to detect your drive

Hard drive not found in bios.


Hi,

Thanks for using FixYa!

There are three possibilities why your HDD(hard drive) is not showing up. 1. Its already a bad drive (failing HDD mainboard). 2. Loose HDD cable inside your laptop. 3. Bad laptop sata port. Hopefully its just #2 but most of the time its #1. Bring your computer to a technician. They will be able to easily isolate the problem. I hope this helps.

Have a nice day
