Hi,

Sounds like one of the components on your motherboard is faulty.

it could be simply the battery for the clock or the memory or sound etc.. check each and replace.

Also, when the PC starts just before the error there are certain number of beeps. Count how many beeps as they represent a fault type.

I hope this helps,

Thanks.

Eheat will not come on


When resetting anything electronic, leave switched off for about 15 mins. The electronic boards store the memory of any failure or problem and switching off for only a few seconds or minutes will not reset the board. Turn off at the mains supply not the wall control.

Tail lights and dash lights are out


Hi Jeffrey,

Most likely to be the lighting control logic board, inside the pod on the left of the steering wheel.
The board lives in that black housing through which the headlight switch is also mounted and has the fog light switches on the board also so that they poke out of the top when the board it in place.
To access the board take out the one Phillips screw directly underneath that left side pod and the bottom panel comes off, the board then un-clips (2 spring plastic clips at the far end near the dash clocks, one near to you, ease them back and you will feel the board come loose ) , and drops out, pull off the light switch knob and undo the nut around the switch to allow you to gently ease the switch shaft back through it's hole and remove it with the board, unplug and replace the complete board unit and the main light switch which is attached to this board by its wires, put the switch back in and nut back on that first, then ease the board back into its housing until the clips click, replace the bottom pod cover with the screw and you are done, takes about 15 minutes tops.

Hope this helps
any further questions post them here and I will see them
regards
Tim.

Hi my pc come up with a error boot disk failure bit also i get a blue screen sometimes


You have given little information, but to me it sounds like your hard disk is failing. I would try to get the drive imaged to another one, and replace the drive before you completely lose all your data!

I have Philips 15PF9945 (15"


If the last problem happened at first, I would blame the power supply since this is a very common point of failure. You have had so many different problems preceding it dying completely, it sounds you should plan on replacing the main board and the power supply. The failures you first had all point to the main board where most of the signal activity processes happen but the fact that it will not even light off now point to what I would call a 'lemon.' If the set is more than 2-3 years old, it may have still been built by Philips but all the newer sets under that name are now built by Funai, the worst Asian manufacturer of all.

I get a blank screen and 4 beeps what's the problem?


Hi,
This could happen when the RAM contact is not proper, may be due to dust. Remove the memory modules from DIMM slot, clean it (no moisture please) and reinsert it. This could mostly solve your issue.
Please come back and rate my solution if it turns helpful for you or also if you need more clarifications. Thnx

System turns on however hard drive will not cycle nor will mouse or key board activate


Turn power off and unplug power from computer.
Unplug printers,backup drives and speakers.
Open case and unplug power supply from the board.
plug power cord back in press the power button.
Of course nothing will happen.
unplug power cord again.
plug power supply back into the board.
plug power cord backup and press power switch.
If nothing happens unplug power cord again.
pull out your memory sticks and plug cord back in and press power button.
Of course not much will happen.
But really something is happening to your computer so continue.
Pull power cord and replace memory sticks.
replace power cord and press power switch.
Continue this pulling out pci cards one at a time until you find out what the problem might be.
Try different keyboards and mice too.
Good Luck

Won't turn on


Your Mainboard is faulty. I had an Eten M600 like that before and ended up it die totally. Eten had many problem with their board. If you still have warranty, contact them for a replacement. Nothing you can do about it since the board is failed to boost due to Power failure.
