CPI Trouble Light will not Reset

I have a CPI alarm. Trouble light came on when backup battery went bad. Replaced backup battery with a new one from Batteries Plus, then pressed Reset to reset the panel, but the trouble light remains on. The alarm is monitored by CPI and the trouble indicator reported to me by them was low batt. So, they told me to replace the battery and I did. When I called them on the weekend to see it they were still getting a trouble they said everything looked good. Any ideas on how to get rid of the trouble light?

Where is the reset button on a CompaqPC with Clarian Intel Pro. - SR-5000. Power went out and now can't reboot.

Reset? Is the Computer connected to a Battery Backup, UPS? You are getting power at the AC outlet? Not a tripped circuit breaker? Have you open the computer and looked for a in-line fuse? What happens when you try to boot? Anything? Fans spin? Sound? LED's Blink? What? Try here for the appropriate manuals, user, service: If you don't have your Electronics on Battery Backup or Surge Protection you going to have these and worse issues. Their are no garrenties, but it will help to have these devices. I have seen every electronic device in the house fried and must be replaced from Portable phones to expensive TV's and all in between.

System battery voltage is low even i replaced it


As far as I know desktops do not have batteries unless you have an external UPS power backup system. If you are getting low voltage alarms or unexpected system shutdowns your power supply needs to be replaced. If you are using a laptop and you are plugged into an outlet and your battery is in this can cause the battery to go bad. E.I. if you use an outlet take out your battery.
I hope this helps.

I have a k7mnf-64 socket 462 when I turn on the computer I get an alarm and a red light on the motherboard I have checked ram and every thing else and the only way to stop the alarm is to pull main power,...

"I have checked ram and every thing else" (sic) When you say everything else, I presume you mean with No HD, No DVD, NO "Other" cards in slots, No USB, & just a monitor connected? If yes to all those, then yes I would think that the MB has developed a Fault. The "Red Light" this LED usually signals that the MB is receiving good power, it is NOT a "Fault Light". have you REPLACED the RAM with new ones? You say "Alarm" what exactly is this alarm sound?

EMachines T2824. Does nothing but light on mainboard coming on...

This is a motherboard problem. You'll need to replace it. Although, it may be cheaper just to buy a new PC (eMachines are never very expensive, or well-made for that matter)

My Logitech Dinovo Edge is not recharging. When I put it in the charger the battery charging indicator light flashes red instead of green.

Were you having problems with short battery life before this happened? Most of the time if the battery is not recharging it needs to be replaced. Have never seen the red flashing light before though. It may mean that the battery has shorted out.

Acer laptop shut of during power outage .

From the Acer website:
Power Issues or Will not Boot
If the notebook does not power on:

Make sure the ac adapter is correctly plugged into the notebook and into the power cord.

If everything is plugged in correctly and it still will not power on, follow these steps to complete a ‘power reset' of the notebook.
  1. Unplug the ac adapter. Keep ac adapter unplugged.
  2. Remove the battery and keep the battery unplugged.
  3. Hold the power button down for 15-20 seconds. (Nothing will appear on the display and none of the lights will light up.)
  4. Release the power button and plug in the ac adapter ONLY. (Please note that a power indicator light should be lit on the ac adapter when it is plugged in).
  5. Normally power on the notebook.
  6. If the unit does not power on, remove the ac adapter and insert the battery into the system.
  7. Plug the ac adapter back into the system, the battery charging indicator light will light up.
    If the battery charging indicator light does not light up, the ac adapter may not be providing proper power to the unit, and may need to be replaced.
Also, depending on whether your power went down "clean" (quick and stayed off), or went down and quickly came back on and off many times. Or when it came back on "clean" (came back on quick and stayed on), or it came on then off many times, your power supply may have been damaged from the power surges Are you having any problems with any other appliances?
