Alarm? Try this, Unplug the computer from the AC, wait a few mins. and plug into AC, try to boot normally. You didn't supply the Model of the computer or the OS you are using. It may be a PSU? Unplug from AC, Try to reseat the Memory Mods, remove the CMOS battery and reinstall. Maybe this will help: http://www.medion.com/gb/service/start/

SOURCE: my e4034 is sounding an alarm when I try to switch

Your fan speeds up and slows down in response to temperature inside the computer. More so the CPU.

I would suggest getting a can of compressed air made for computers

take it outside, take of the side and blow all the gunk out of there, Really go to town around the fan (you might want to wear eye protection)
While you are in there just check that the CPU cooler itself is not loose

If it is it will have to be re-seated.

If it needs re-seating don't just take it off and put it back on as that might make things worse with your temperature problem they have to be cleaned and new thermal grease put on ($2-5)

DON'T remove the CPU just the fan/cooler assembly.

You must clean both the surfaces without scraping anything off. Use isopropynol alcohol and cotton bud sticks until both surfaces are clean, you can use your finger nail to scrape harder residue if you wish but nothing else.

DON'T pour the alcohol over the CPU

Now apply some new thermal grease (most computer shops have it)

Be careful about how much you put on

Here are
some basic instructions


Once you have re-assembled your cooler and re-connected it check everything is OK and power up the computer.

If everything went to plan you should now be back in business

SOURCE: alarm goes off when it starts up

The alarm is a BIOS alarm. It is warning you of either a cooling fan failure or the processor getting too hot. Either way, you need to fix the problem, not just ignore it!

I would check that all the fans are running correctly and would also recommend that you give the insides of your computer case a clean out - you'll be amazed at how much dust can build up in there! This may well cure the problem.

If it is a processor temperature alarm, rather than turning it off, you may want to adjust it so it doesn't sound until a higher temp. is reached. You can adjust this from the BIOS screen, but I would check the maximum temp. that your processor is designed to run at before doing so.

To get to the BIOS screen to turn it off, press the delete key (repeatedly) while the machine is booting.

I can't tell you exactly when to find it in the BIOS, as this can vary from one computer to the next. Just navigate you way around until you find the relevant section.

**** WARNING ****

Changing settings in the BIOS can affect the computers performance, prevent it from starting, or even cause permanent damage to hardware. Unless you know exactly what you're doing, I wouldn't recommend changing things!

Hope this helps,

Matt

I have 2004 chev tahoe w/ a viper remote starter system,but no key fob. I replaced the car battery & now the cars computer won't let it start. How do I reset the computer?


The car's computer wont let it start?
Well, if you changed the battery and the viper alarm is the issue; locate the push button valet/programming switch. Turn the ignition on, press and release the switch. The alarm will disarm and you can start the vehicle.
To put the alarm in valet, turn the ignition on then off, within 10 seconds press and release the valet switch. The LED will illuminate solid to show that the system is in valet.

My security system won't disarm on my 1999 chevy blazer


Is this an aftermarket alarm? If so, first locate the valet switch. It should be a black push button. Next, turn the ignition on, press and release the valet switch. This should disarm you aftermarket alarm. This is the most common manual disarm procedure for Directed (avital, python, Automate, Viper) and Audiovox (prestige, pursuit, code).

If this is the factory alarm and, you don't have the remote. Unlock the vehicle using your key in the driver's door.

Factory car alarm activates at high temparature


Hello! There is a Hood Switch designed to operate the Alarm If the hood is opened when the car is locked with alarm set...The Hood Switch is affected by heat from the engine plus the ambient temperature...The wire colors on the two pin switch connector are...Black/Pink and Black...Replace the switch OR clip a wire across those two pins which tells the system the switch is permanently closed...If this doesn't work, try disconnecting the connector which leaves the switch permanently open...I believe if you short out the switch the system won't know and the trouble will be removed...Guru...saailer

When i try to start me 2008 sonata the alarm goes off and the engine will not turn over. what can i do?


Your Sonata is equipped with a "Keyless Entry & Burglar Alarm" system. When the Burglar Alarm is activated, it KILLS the starting system through the used of a relay called the "Burglar Alarm Relay". This mode prevents engine starting with the key.
Solution #1
Disarm the system with the Keyless Remote (key fob) If you don't have this remote (or its battery is dead) replace the battery & try disarming again.
Solution #2
Enter the vehicle & insert the key in the ignition and turn the ignition switch to 'RUN'. Wait 3 to 5 minutes until the alarm stops. You should then be able to start the engine.

Have a qualified/certified Hyundai Service Technician properly diagnose this issue.

2004 Hyundai Elantra won't start, emergency flashers keep blinking, can't shut off, lights dim, can't jump start, clicking from under dash from relays. What could it be?


The 'Keyless Entry & Burglar Alarm System" is activated. You must 'Disarm' the system using the Keyless Entry Remove (Key Fob) to "Reset" the system. The reason the engine won't start is due to the burglar alarm - it has a "Starter Kill" circuit which is activated when the alarm is activated. The alarm must be DEactivated to DEactivate the 'Starter Kill' circuit.
Another way to start the engine is to get in the car, put the key in the ignition and turn it to 'ON" and wait 3 to 5 minutes until the emergency flashers stop/turn off. Afterward, you should be able to start the engine. NOTE: This does NOT reset the burglar alarm. It will go off again when you enter the vehicle without using the remote/key fob.
