Nothing wrong with airbag but the light wont switch off

Something is wrong in the air bag system,that is why the light is on.The light is a flag to let you know the self diagnostics have detected something wrong.There are multiple sensors,a clockspring , several bag modules and a computer , anyone of these things could be the cause and looking at them will not tell you they are bad.You will need to have the trouble code pulled from the airbag computer to know where to start.The light will go out when the problem is fixed.

I have an hp pavilion a6030n that wont power up. I've tried multiple power sources, removing ram and battery and reinstalling and switching the power options on the back of the computer. Nothing is...

First thing you should try is another monitor. It's likely nothing is going to happen but if you get a picture, then that rules out the video card, which means you have a bad cable or a bad monitor. If you're plugging into an external video card, try plugging into the on-board video card. If you get an image then your external video card is shot. If you don't get an image, that rules out anything to do with your video card(s).
If this is the case then it's likely you need new Ram. You can see if this is the problem by removing the Ram and trying it in another computer. If the other computer stops working then the problem is due to faulty ram. If it still works, your ram is fine.

The next step is to test the hard drive. Again, take the hard drive to another computer and plug it in. If your hard drive is recognized, then something is wrong with your processor, the BIOS, or the motherboard.

It's a process of elimination to find out what piece of hardware has stopped working on you.

I attach my monitor and turn the machine on and I get a black screen. When I pull the monitor cable out of from the monitor connection on the motherboard I get a color display on the monitor. What is...

When you disconnect the monitor cable, the display you see is from the monitor itself. It's telling you that the monitor has power and is working, but that you don't have the cable connected to your computer. So the trouble is in your computer, which isn't sending anything to the monitor.

Your computer may not be starting up when you turn on the power. This is pretty common, and may be due to a bad power supply or system board. Or something may be wrong on one of the devices connected to the motherboard (one of the drives or a card plugged in to an expansion slot). You'll need to figure out what is keeping the computer from starting. The easiest way is to unplug all devices from the motherboard except for the power supply and try starting the computer. If the computer starts up you'll know that one of those parts you disconnected is at fault.

Another possibility is that the video card (integrated video on the motherboard in most computers, or a separate card) isn't working. The computer may be starting up and getting in to Windows, but you just never get any video to the monitor. If you are hearing all the sounds of a normal startup (disk drive activity and then finally whatever startup sound your Windows makes), then you need a new video card. If the board has integrated video you just need to install a new plug-in video card of whatever type fits the available slot on the board.

I placed the motherboard into a new case. I think the new case had a defective power switch. it would not start. I put back in the original case and the computer attempts to start and stops and keeps...

> attempts to start and keeps repeating

Please be more specific.

Do you get the initial "splash" screen, and then some white-text-over-black-background,
giving RAM size, processor ID, and such?

Do you see the "press DEL to enter BIOS SETUP" message?

What else do you see?

Is a disk-drive attached to the motherboard?
Does the motherboard try to boot from that disk-drive?

Since you're having this trouble with the replacement motherboard, the trouble is probably somewhere else. (I say probably since there's always a small chance the replacement is also bad. I've had this happen, but it would be unusual.) Parts substitution is normally the only way you'll find out what wrong.

First, install only the bare minimum parts for the system to boot. This would be the power supply, processor and fan, and memory. Don't install any other cards or connect the cable to any of the drives. Connect your monitor and turn on the power. With this setup, if those parts are good the system will start and show the motherboard splash screen and startup information.

If the system still doesn't start at all, with no video or beep codes, your power supply or the processor are faulty. The power supply is the most likely culprit, and you can substitute another one as a test. If you're building a new computer using the case and power supply from an older system (I often do it when upgrading someone's machine), the existing supply may be under-powered. Or it may simply be bad. Then you can try another processor if the power supply doesn't help.

If the system starts up with everything else disconnected, one of those devices is responsible. Begin reconnecting them one at a time and try restarting the computer each time. When the machine doesn't start you'll know which part is causing the trouble.

I know this isn't the exact solution to your particular problem, but it's the process to follow to isolate what's wrong. Hope this helps a little, and that you have your computer running soon. Good luck, and thanks for using Fixya!

Sounds like a motherboard issue. The sound you are hearing is probably the fan running so your board may not be totally shot. Generally, when the computer won't start at all that is the issue. The only other thing I can think of is the power supply but your fan probably wouldn't run either.

I have a gateway 835gm desk top

there are a number of things that could be wrong here, firstly reset the cmos on the motherboard, if you cannot find the cmos jumper then remove the battery for 10 minutes (make sure the power cord is removed from the back) press the on/off button a couple of times, this will drain any remaining power from the board and properly reset the cmos, while the battery is out remove the memory, clean the contacts and repace, put the battery back in and connect power, if the machine turns on, job done, if not then it could be something far more serious, check the power suppy if could be faulty, the processor may have blown or the motherboard itself may have blown, the only way to check all the components at once is to get a working motherboard which supports your processor type, the same model would be an advantage

Motherboard sound issues

Hi antlob,
Normally one would think something is wrong but if you look at page 2-23 in you're manual you'll see you're using the wrong plug-in (Lime green) (Rear). Plug you're spreaker jack into the
(Black sound out jack). See if that makes a differance?
To fine tune you're sound you can open Asus/RealTek sound effect manager listed in control manager. This program has connector sensing software & other goodies.
