Packard Bell Imedia 1402 wont boot up

Hi When I try and boot up my PB Imedia 1402, the power LED flashes and the power button flashes yellow. Also, when I remove the RAM chipset, there is no difference, but when I disconect the HD, the RED flashing LED stops! However the power button continues to flash yellow. When I connected another HD, the symptoms were the same, in that the RED light stayed off but the power button flashed yellow. In all cases, there is no display to the monitor, the PSU makes a slight whirring noise as if its struggling(?). Not sure if this is relevant however! Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks for your time. JP

Re: Packard Bell Imedia 1402 wont boot up

You did not install the new Hdd properly, the part of the ribbon cable with colour should be by the side of the power connector and the power connector should be connected with the red cble by the side of the colour on the ribbon cable.

My computer stopped working some time ago, and I was pretty much certain my hard disk had died (SATA), so I bought a new Hard drive (SATA) and booted my computer....the bios didn't detect the hard drive,...


try replacing all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA and the ones that attach from your motherboard to hard drive one bad lead will cause a computer to shut down

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they are probably old and faulty ?

hope this helps

Orange led on mother board

You have a hardware failure, most likely memory or video card. The first thing I would try is open the case and blow the dust out of it, especially dust on the memory modules and anywhere on the motherboard. Then try to boot the computer again. If that does not work I would start removing components one at a time and testing them.

Packard Bell 4451 lap top will not power up.

check the back of the power connector to see if it is loose. I have known alot of situations were, if not carefully removed, that power connector in the can free itself from the sodder on the Mother board therefore you wont be able to charge the battery nor boot up. hope that helps

Led pins

I think you will have the an instruction manual of Packard Bell imedia 5106.In the manual an outline of the motherboard will be given.Figure out power and reset pins in the diagram given.

Usually the pins are at the corners only.
There will be labels near the pins like pwr rst etc.
Try connecting in the same configuration.

Please Rate me ;-) >Karatela
