I have an IBM Thinkpad T42 and the cooling fan stop working. I am looking for the spare part (new). The model number for the part should be fru 13r2919. Can you let me know if you have in stock, the...


Appreciate your inquiry Mario, but this is a Product Support Website.
We offer solutions to product problems, and are not directly connected with any manufacturer, nor seller of manufactured parts.

fru or FRU you see stated, pertains to Field Replaceable Unit.

From a quick search on the internet just now, (I typed fan 13r2919 in my search bar), these are examples of a few search hits,

1) http://www.thinkpad-parts.com/13R2919-ThinkPad.html

2) http://www.lapzone.com/servlet/the-18999/IBM-ThinkPad-T40-T41/Detail

3) http://sparepartworld.com/13r2919-cpu-cooler-fan/product_info.php/products_id/1318608

Looks like a pretty expensive part to me.
Perhaps check Ebay.

My HP2230s was BIOS locked. How can I boor up the Hiren's boot CD?


There are four common categories of solutions to remove or reset a BIOS password and here are the details on how to go about resetting your BIOS password.<br /> <br /><b>Manufacturer Backdoor BIOS Password</b><br /><br />Most of the BIOS makers have set a backdoor password on the older computer models. That is the master password for BIOS. To reset BIOS passwords first you need to check the manufacturer of your computer's BIOS. Most computers have BIOS include AMI, IBM, Award, and Phoenix. These are the most common BIOS. You can unlock your locked BIOS using this master password. It works, no matter what the user sets the password to. Many popular computer and laptop manufacturers such as HP and DELL lock the BIOS because they want to protect their machine's most sensitive areas (those areas which have warranty) from their customers. These passwords are usually used by computer technicians for testing and repairing. <br /><br /><b>Reset the jumper that holds the password<br /></b><br />Open the computer and locate on the motherboard the BIOS password jumper. The jumper is usually jumper 1 and often labeled as PSWD, PWD, CLRPWD, CLEAR, JCMOS1, CLR, CLEAR CMOS, PASSWD, or PASSWORD. Normally you would have 3 pins and to reset the password you just need to put the jumper on the 2 and 3 pins leaving pin 1 empty. After you move the jumper, turn the computer on to clear the password, then once password removed turn it off and put the jumper back to its original position.<br /><br /><b>Removing the CMOS Battery to reset the BIOS to default</b><br /><br />Switch off your computer, and open up the case. You'll see a circular metallic silver item on motherboard. This is called CMOS Battery. Remove it carefully, and leave it out for about 2 minutes. This act will remove the CMOS memory which contains BIOS password. Set the CMOS battery back and switch on the computer. Restore the CMOS configuration as default. Your BIOS password has been cleared now. <br /><br /><b>Using third party software utility to reset BIOS password</b><br /><br />To reset BIOS you can use third party software like Kill CMOS which wipes out CMOS, or CmosPwd which is a BIOS utility. Hiren's Boot CD has a few programs including the above two that will help you to reset the password. Here is a link to Hirens Boot CD website <a href="http://www.hirensbootcd.org/">http://www.hirensbootcd.org/</a>. To download the latest version, click on the Download link on the left side and go to the last page. You will need a CD writer to put the content on a blank CD.

My Dell Deiension 3000 stopped, no sound, no picture. When I plug power to the tower, the power light comes on,a green light on the mother board comes on, and the fan on the power supply comes on.


This sounds like video card. Can be ether drivers or card it self. Try booting in to safe mode by pressing f8 on boor and if it does not work or it does not show option on screen when you do this it means it is issue with card it self. Hope this helps.

Compter will not start up , it only sits at the Dell Logo with the bar not fully loaded


Pull any USB related (Example: memory stick) and disconnect the ethernet network cable out.

Pull the power cord from the computer for 20 seconds and power up the computer.

Some older computer does not boor with USB memory inserted.

In correct setting on the CMOS may set to boot OS from network. Check cmos and make sure it's boot for your local harddrive.

Ive just created a computer and put all the staff together. the problem is that it beeps one time before showing the screen and i cant press anything as it sais to press the delete button go into boor...


The system is having a problem accessing the system memory to refresh it. Refreshing is done on all system memory to keep its contents active. Diagnosis: This code usually means a problem either with the system memory or with the motherboard itself.
Recommendation:
Troubleshoot the motherboard.
Treat as an apparent memory failure.
Make sure the the memory DIMM is compatible with the motherboard.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
