Error 0194 ibm think centre 8185 desktop


Try going into the Bios or System Setup and see if there are some settings for System Security or Asset ID Antenna. It sounds like something is set in the Bios. Turn the computer off, then turn it back on and watch the screen for which key it says to hit to get into the Bios or System Setup. Hit the key when you see the message or it will not work and you will have to reboot and try again.

IBM 8303 DOESN'T SUPPORT MY FLATSCREEN HP VS15


2 steps:

1. plug the hp vs15 into another computer and see if it works, if not could be a bad monitor.
2. If you have the old monitor, plug it in to the IBM computer and in windows lower the resolution down to 640 X 480. Now turn off the computer and plug in the VS15 monitor. If resolution was an issue it should work now.

Hope this helps

My emachine T1742 desktop will not turn on. When plugged in the power supply's fan turns on, cpu fan doesnt start, both hdd/power led's flicker and pressing power button doesnt power on/off system.


Disconnect all the devices from the computer(tower) including keyboard, mouse, monitor(everything)..even the power cable

Now keep on holding down the power button on the computer tower for 15-30 seconds..

Now release the power button, plug in the power cable, monitor, keyboard, mouse and turn on the computer...

If it works, great!!!

Otherwise, take it for repair..

My IBM 8183 automatically turn off while i turning it on!!


this is standard on most IBMs, when they are setup in the bios to not turn on after powerloss. you must wait for the on, then off to occur, then you can turn it on. The fan in the computer is probably loose, or possibly old, if not its normal.

My Computer Doesnt Do Anything!


Your PC is overdriving the monitor and it is protecting itself from harm.
Start in SAFE mode (press F8 wile booting) and SAFE mode to see if it works in Windows DEFAULT setting. Then Reboot and readjust to something sensible (1280*1600, 32bit, 60Hz)

My guess is that MSoft pushed a patch or SP to your box and IT replaced the dll your monitor was using.

Goto mfg and DL and reinstall the correct drivers again

Good Luck!

My ibm desk top is stuck in power save mode monitor won't work


So the only way you have to act is, turned off and directly on the mainboard, so do it carefully.
You'll have to find out, where, on the mainboard is located the battery, (a small coin like
unpluggable metallic piece)
Remove it and let all static electricity completely disapear, so, let the cpu power unplugged,
battery removed, for 1h,
Then, place back, battery, try to start again if not working it's hardwaire failure.
