Question about HP PC Desktops

The calculator no longer turns on despite new batteries

Does not turn on despite new batteries. Have been told there is a chip which needs replacing? Have had other calculators repaired that way, but this one only lasted 6 months. Have had repairs done this way 6 times before but would prefer if there is a method which is more permanent. The HP 41 came out in 1980 and have 6 in my possession. Over time the calculaters degenerate and can not be activated. Presentlt only 1 is working and it is showing signs of 'pcking it in'. In my opinion the newer models are not a patch on the HP41, HP41C, HP41CV or the HP41CX.

    lets try a reset this calculator? Back to factory settings?
    =shift , setup button.. 1 is for fraction, 2 for decimal.

    if you already done removing the battery then perform this operation! 

    SHIFT 9 (CLR) 3 (ALL) = YES

    This will initialize the calculator and return the calculation mode and setup to its initial default setting. this will also clear all data currently in the calculator.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

My compliments, the HP41 do bring back school days memories.

To your concern, initially, pls try:

  • hard reset, remove battery pack, short the battery terminals of the HP41;
  • replace/recharge batteries;
  • clean, scrape the battery terminals. In some instances they may have to be stretched/bent to ensure more pressure/contact with the batteries;
  • unplug any peripherals/external add-ons;
  • perform a memory reset by turning the HP41 OFF, pres and hold the backarrow < while turning the unit ON.
Should the above be not corrective, then the unit has to be opened up and voltage measurements be performed on the powersupply section. You may be interested to reference some repair pages.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Is there someone out there who can repair older ATTO cards


These devices contain surface mount components that require a reflow station to remove / affix.

You may be able to contact a company that works on pcb's to repair it, however if the product is at end of life, the chips used may no longer be available, and if any of the chips have custom programming from the factory, these chips will not be fixable.

You may need to look into a new replacement card. ATTO is still in business and can probably offer you a comparable replacement.

Make sure you have a 200-266 MHz DDR RAM. You should also have two RAM slots, try using both of them (two sticks of RAM that equals what you want it to), also make sure you haven't gone over the 2GB max, and make sure they are secured in the slots.

It sounds like the CMOS battery(s) are dead. They hold the most recent boot information including current date. Assuming both machines are on the older side, it's entirely possible the CMOS batteries no longer are providing enough power to retain this information.

Dell Dimension E510 will not turn on


It could be.

When you switch on after it has been turned off for a while look at the fan on the PSU as you switch on.

If it spins or tries to spin for a very short time then I would indeed suspect the psu.

If however the psu fan does spin for longer and you can hear any beeps then that would be an indication of a different problem.

Should that be the case then check here.

Compaq Presario 5000 wont boot up


Check the memory, remove and reseat the memory. If that does not work then try and replace the BIOS battery, again if that does not work then it is time for a new motherboard. Do the fans turn on?

How do you change RAM for a LG P1 Express Dual


You need to google the exact model to find out the memory you need. Unhook the power and turn over the laptop. Remove the battery as well. i can't find the manual for that model but there should be a small door probably with a couple screws holding it closed. remove the screws to access the memory.
On each side of the memory chip you will see tabs. GENTLY move them away from the chip. it should pop up on an angle. remove the memory and repeat the same step if there are two slots and you intend to replace both chips.
When you remove the memory note where the slot on the bottom of the memory chip is. Replace the bottom chip first by gently sliding it into the connector. When it is seated push down on the chip gently till it clicks into place. repeat the same with the second memory chip.
After you are done put the cover back on with the screws.

Turn over the laptop and reboot and watch to see that the memory has been recognized.

I need a new battery for my laptop. Where can I get one?


Hi,

Most if not all laptop manufacturer also sell batteries for the model they carry/sell. You need to go the the website of your laptop manufacturer and look for an appropriate battery to your specific laptop model.

Alternately, there are available aftermarket/generic/replacement batteries that will also fit your laptop. You can try here, here or here. Additionally, there are some versions that has a higher capacity which translates to longer usage time.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
