Question about IBM IntelliStation M Pro 6219 PC Desktop
We had the Geek Squad come out to our house today, because our computer completely stopped working. Our initial problem was that when we we attempting to get online, the puter suddenly made a few beeps and then it said the computer overheated. We cleaned inside the tower by vacuming it inside. That didn't didn't seem to make any difference. When the Geek Squad guy came out, he cleaned undernead and around things with a paper towel and whoala we had our computer back...or so it seemed anyway.... Shortly after he left I was in the process of printing an e-mail when the puter blacked out, and it said it was in Power Save mode. It then kind of blipped in and out turned black for a short bit, and after a few minutes it would come back to our regular screen saver showing all of our desk top icons. We have messed with the puter over and over today, and my husband unplugged the power cord and plugged it back in making sure that the cord was plugged in correctly. That actually seemed to work at first, but when we restarted the computer it was doing the same thing with the power save mode all over again. Do you have any idea why this would be happening? Do you have any suggestions as to what we can do to rectify this situation?
I just had this problem exactly and it ended up being the memory card slot....which in turn means the whole motherboard. I went thru tech support and luckily my computer was still under warranty. You can check if it is this by unplugging computer, then push and hold power button to drain excess electricity for about 30 seconds. you have to remove the memory cards then put one at a time back in to determine which card or card slot is affected.. It could be the memory card itself or the slot. If it is memory card slot you can tell by putting a known working card into slot and see if it works. Hope this is helpful
