It indicates a faulty RAM module. Have a check with a working one.

How to resetdvrpassword


Password Reset Instructions

First make sure that the unit is turned off.

Then press and hold any button on the included infrared remote control.

While holding the button on the remote, power on the unit.

You should hear a single beep followed by a double beep. Once you hear the double beep, press 1 2 3 5 on the remote control. If entered correctly you will hear a double beep and the DVR will begin to boot. (If entered incorrectly, you will hear a sequence of about eight beeps and then a double beep to prompt you to re enter 1 2 3 5.)

Now that the DVR is booted, you will be prompted to enter the password which is now the default "1234". Using either the included infrared remote control or a USB mouse, press Menu, followed by System Setup. (Shown Below)



Then select the User tab, followed by Management. (Shown Below)



In the Management menu, press Edit next to the User ID you wish to change the password for. In most cases it will be the Admin account. (Shown Below)



On the Edit menu, press the Password tab and you will be prompted to enter the current password which is the default "1234". Press OK to continue. (Below)





Now you will be prompted to enter your new desired password. Press OK once complete. The password that you select must have a maximum character count of 8. Your password is now updated.

Hi my laptop developed a strange problem. I formatted the system drive and installed a fresh copy of windows 7 ultimate sp1. now at the boot up the laptop makes loud annoying ringing bell sound for a few...


Is the "ringing bell" sound a series of beeps? A computer will have beep codes at start up for the user to identify system errors. Count the beeps, one long and 2 short or 3 short beeps or one continuous beep, etc. Then you can search to find what that specific beep code stands for. As for the the touchpad you may need to go into the system properties, right click on my computer, click properties and then click device manager on right. Click the "+" next to mice and other pointing devices. Double click on the touchpad device and then the driver tab. Click update driver and see if it finds a better driver. Or do a windows update. Sometimes the problem can be fixed there. Lastly, and oddly enough, try to take out your battery when the power cord is plugged in. I have seen cases where a bad battery can cause problems with the touchpad and keyboard. I hope one of these helps!

I am trying to get the latest update for this game, but I keep getting the error message or booted out. Help?


Hi,
Hopefully this will help solve your problem:
1. Press and hold down the power button located at the front of the PS3 console, until you hear a first beep, then eventually a second – before the console shuts down, then let go of the button;
2. Now press and hold the button again until you hear a first beep, then a second beep then eventually a quick double-beep, then let go of the button;
3. The TV screen should now display a six option menu, where you can select what’s required, i.e. `Restart System`, `Restore System` etc. `Reset System` should only be used after other attempts with the other options, as your game saved data may be lost. If you play Modern Warfare 2 online, then this won’t be affected as your data is saved on the Sony Server.
4. During any of the above actions, your best having your handset controller connected to the PS3 via the USB cord, which includes pressing the `P` button when required (located between `Start` and `Select`).
These actions should help solve `freeze` problems and others such as update errors etc – which restrict you starting up or playing your console.
Don’t hesitate to contact Sony UK if required, who are very helpful. Their UK number is: 0844 7360595

Good Luck!

Wont start messages comes up saying correct hard disk not found


your hard drive may be dying. or the file system may be corrupted.

before you get a new hard drive there are some tricks to try.

#1 remove the HDD and boot it up without it in, then turn off and put the HDD back in and boot again.

#2 rebuild the file system in the recovery menu

#3 rebuild the database in the recovery menu


To get to the recovery menu you need to press and hold the power button when the ps3 is in standby mode untill you hear a double beep then release. sometimes the ps3 will go back to standby mode before it does the double beep if it does just release the button and press and hold again real fast and wait for double beep.

here is what mine does

ps3 standby(red light) press hold power...........beep...............beep.........standby again, release hold............beep..................double beep ..release power button.

from the recovery consol you can rebuild the file system and database sometimes when they are corrupted it has same symptoms as a dying HDD.

P.S. rebuilding the file system and database will not lose any of your ps3 data, other options will though like the restore ps3 and format HDD.
if the above tricks dont work try updating the firmware, if your at the current firmware you can re-install it from the recovery menu as well using a usb memory stick or a cd with the firmware on it.

if all that doesnt help it looks like its time to get a new HDD, but at least you can upgrade it to a bigger ps3 now. any sata laptop HDD should work. i think a 160gb HDD is only $50ish.

No boot screen have 2 gb ddr2 memory nvidia 9600 gt e 8400 cpu


If all your parts are tested in another computer then I would say it could be your motherboard. Double check your memory to be sure it is comparable with your motherboard and reset the CMOS jump or pull the battery on the motherboard to reset the BIOS settings. If it will still not boot then I would look to the the motherboard. Do you get any beep codes at all when it powers on?

If you get no beep codes at all and the fans turn on but no display then it would be an issue with your motherboard or CPU. If you have tested the CPU in another machine then that only leaves your motherboard. Be sure you carefully re-seat any component in the system and double check your wires. But, if you are not getting a beep code this is almost always the motherboard.

yes it is a RAM problem in all probability. Open your box after taking out the power cable. If you know how a RAM module looks like, take it out & replug it. If more than 1 module, fix 1 module at a time and power on the system. If still the same problem get your RAM checked/replaced.
