The most common reason a computer won't start can be a piece of hardware has failed or is causing a problem but that hardware isn't usually a hard drive, the part of your computer that stores all of your files. To fix such kinds of issue, you can take the following steps.1.create a bootable usb or cd ,there are kinds of software for you to complete this step, you can choose Fix Boot,EasyBootDisk or Windows Boot Genius. I suggest you to use Windows Boot Genius, it is easier and more effective.2.boot your computer from the created disk3.fix the issue after run the softwareBy the way, before any further steps you should make sure the power supply is good. Any hardware issues such as pc power and cable,motherboard corrupted should be troubleshooted.I don't suggest you to try the solution above until you are sure there is nothing to do with the hardware.

How do I bypass or remove the delay upon starting my Yamaha G16 A/E cart?

Not supposed to have a delay. Something is wrong.
Possible causes are Starter/ Gen bad, loose belt or worn, I am thinking this a gas cart? Usually G16 A is gas and G16 E is electric.

Locating solenoid switch on 1999 esteem. Drained radiator last night to fill with antifreeze, then car would not start! Had no problems before. wondering if maybe we pulled a wire loose some where?

depending on how the radiator was drained , ( bottom hose off or tank tap) it is possible that the wire to the crank position sensor was disturbed
run the fault codes to check for other possible wiring problems or sensor failure

Hp compaq pentium 4 not booting, light blinks red 8 times

No solution, but I can give an idea of what's wrong.
In the quickspecs for this computer
nder the expended Technical Specifications section, in the 'Serviceability Features of the system' section, under 'Diagnostic LED Explanation Table', it says 8 blinks of the red LED, repeated every 2 seconds, mean "invalid ROM, bootblock recover mode"

It seems that your BIOS ROM become corrupted. The solution to this problem depends on which BIOS you have. Search "invalid ROM, bootblock recover mode" for possible solutions. Restting the CMOS by shorting the two pins on the m/b might just work, but I doubt it in this case. You may have to get the contents of the ROM from HP and re-flash your ROM. Good luck.
