Question about Computers & Internet
That's the flow chart I use working on Tanks. (M60 chassis, not Abrams M1A2)
Make sure the filter for fuel is clean, and there is no water. Make sure pickup tube/device to fuel pump is not restricted, and there are no cracks in tubing, etc, that can cause cavitation. (Air instead of fuel is being drawn in) In other words make sure the fuel pump is getting fuel.
Fuel pump line removed from fuel injector pump, run the pump, fill a clean jar. Measure amount based on time. How long to fill, how much.
(Look at your watch second hand. It is so much fuel per minute. Amount is what we're looking for here. Fuel Injector takes care of the pressure. You just want to see if the fuel pump is drawing fuel, and delivering it to the fuel injector pump )
Fuel pressure from fuel pump, could be bleeding down. Valves in fuel pump are no good. If fuel pump is not re-buildable, fuel pump is no good.
After fuel pump line is re-attached back to the injector pump, it is attached loosely. A half turn loose, or so. This is so you can bleed the air out. Allow the fuel pump to run for a few seconds, or a minute, and bleed the air out here. OR, you will be cracking each injector line loose, and bleeding air out. (No fun)
You can 'crack' an injector line loose, and check it's pressure. It is HIGH pressure now, so be forewarned. Use safety measures, and at least use a pair of safety glasses, and have a fire extinguisher CLOSE.
Shouldn't be any fires if no flames, or sparks are not present, but ALWAYS be prepared for the worse.
(Cigarette dropped in Diesel won't set it on fire. Spark near the fumes WILL)
I have seen a pickup sump line break, and drop the pickup sump for the fuel pump, down in the fuel tank. No fuel can be drawn by the fuel pump. Your fuel pump may be submerged in the fuel tank. Just offering hands on experience.
I have seen a lot of 'weird' things concerning military vehicles, and diesel engines. lol!
There is also a fuel pump (Diesel) pressure gauge you may be able to rent. Meter the fuel pressure from the fuel pump.
Fuel pump checks out the problem is the fuel injector pump, just as you have surmised.
Many have rebuild kits. They are no fun to rebuild. However cost of rebuild kit, is probably not much more than cost of rebuilt injector pump.
The military has equipment like the ditch witch. Civilian contractors use a Ditch Witch also. I do not work on them. Close as I get is a 1K Forklift. (Then 4k Forklifts, 10K, and 20K, plus all the wheeled vehicles, and track vehicles, Up To the Abrams, but Not Abrams)
Don't know if I have done any good. You seem to have your 'eye on the ball'.
[When you get everything back together, bleed the air out. Crack the fuel pump to fuel injector pump line, first. Air bled out here, then crack each injector line, ONE AT A TIME, and bleed the air out.
We 'cheat' sometimes. We have a fuel cap with an air valve mounted in it. Car tire air valve. Air is pressurized in fuel tank, of around 20 lbs, (Usually a 'guess-timate'), and forces air through the fuel system, and out. Takes a while, but I usually don't have to crack any lines to bleed air out.

you posted several problems and some are resulted in your trying to diagnose the problem. IF the monitor is black yet you can see the cpu lights meaning it is reading but does not power up all the hardware. In my years of experience in solving hundreds of computer. This is primarily cause by memory or video card. Just re-install or re-insert the memory or video card. This will likely solve the problem. IF just in case the problem still exist replace the memory (RAM) or the video card to check which of which has the defect.
In regards to your computer performing disk scan, this is part of windows utility to fix the hard drive. This is usually cause by pressing the reset button. This appears because when your computer does not power up you reset it. This is normal and nothing to worry about.
Have a nice day in cyberworld

First remove the Ram and boot the system without it. If you hear continuous two beeps, then the problem is with the Ram, you need to replace it. If nothing happens, then your cpu or your motherboard is gone. Good luck. Thanks for using FixYa.

Please remove the CMOS battery.Hold the power switch and fit the cmos battery . And go to set up BIOS,and set the bios fail save default.
If the problem is same Change the DDR1 RAM from ram slot from any running pc or new if you have a spare.
If the problem is same
OPEN the BIOS chip using any thin pin and fit again tightly.

You can change the SMPS or use it in another pc for test ,again the problem is same please change the MOTHER BOARD.

SOURCE: I have 3 Sata drives
Switch off the mother board .
Please remove the cmos battery and press power switch.for 40 seconds.
Install again and set bios for your requirement.
If same as before . change all the cable
Hope this helps

Testimonial: "Thnx for yr advice which I tried, finally turned out to be a heat issue with the Sata drives. New mobo on order."
SOURCE: my dell vastro 1510 laptop
-this issue will happen if you are having overheating problem in the computer, there are 3 possible problem Processor, video card or the chip set for the motherboard it self, try cleaning your air vent or filters, may be the fan inside is not working any more..
