Question about Evesham Voyager 6400 Notebook

2 Answers

No boot Briefly got a problem that said chechsum error in post - since then nothing, no post, no beeps, zilch. Since Evesham went bust can't find any help on trying to get into the damn thing, assume there is some secret about removing the keyboard or the facioa above, but can't see any clips. I was going to try replacing the cmos battery, but secretly think the board is shot - seams that the 6400 wasn't a terribly good lappy. Strange that this lappy doesn't have easy access to a memory upgrade, so one would think there would be something around about dismantling etc?

Re: No boot

I think you may be right about this one, There seem to be quite a few distressed Evesham owners out there, you are correct in that to remove the keyboard you would normally remove the facia above the keyboard, but as I have no direct experience on this laptop I cannot tell you exactly how, although on a few models they include the hinge arches on the facis, and sometimes there is a securing screw on the back of the hinge arches. Good luck my friend as I fear that a service manual may be difficult to find,

My laptop froze. Nothing that I press on it gives a response.

The first step that should be taken is to shut down the laptop. This can most likely be done by holding the power butting down for 10-15 seconds. The next step is to restart the PC and see what happens. If it boots up correctly than this have have been just a one time issue. If after restarting the laptop it will not boot than some trouble shooting steps should be taken. When starting the PC your getting power? If not than there is an issue with the power supply or battery. If you are getting power to the PC than you should listen for the beep code on start up. 1 beep after starting the computer signifys that the power on self test (Also known as the POST) has completed with out issue. When getting any other type of beep code you should research the meaning of the code. Beep codes differ from company to company. The best way to identify the meaning of a beep code is to type the manufacture, model and number of beeps into Google. Another possible issue is that your hard drive is corrupt. If this is the case than your computer will pass the power on self test(POST) but will have a message like MBR not found or one of many other errors. If you are getting an error than it is also a good idea to research the error to determine the proper fix. If the PC seems to boot correctly but there is no image on the screen than the issue may be a result of a bad video card. In that case the video card will need to be replaced.

I hope that information above has helped is some way.

At start up, before windows loads, a consistent series of annoying beeping occurs....

If they're occurring right as you turn the computer on, it's your Power On Self Test (aka POST) letting you know. Since I can't be more specific, here's a synopsis of POST beeps:

One single beep followed by three, four, or five beeps -- System-board problems, possibly with DMA, CMOS setup chip, timer, or system bus. The computer usually won't boot when this is the problem.

Two beeps -- The POST numeric code is displayed on the monitor, usually nothing to be concerned about, but you might google the code on another computer and see what you get.

Two beeps followed be three, four, or five beeps -- First 64K of RAM has errors. Solution is to replace RAM.

Three beeps followed by three, four, or five beeps -- Keyboard controller failed or video controller failed. Either you won't be able to see or type with this error.

Four beeps followed by three, four, or five beeps -- Problem with serial or parallel ports, system timer, or time of day. Check your BIOS settings (usually F2 at start up) to make sure everything is correct.

Continuous beeps - problem with power supply. Probably won't do much with this error. At the very best, your computer will boot and run very, very slowly.

Hope that helped.

Evesham Quest 610 Plus Cmos reset

To reset the CMOS you need to locate the small watch battery on the motherboard and remove it for a minute or so then reinstall it. That is the safest and most reliable way to reset your CMOS. I wouldn't try doing it any other way. Especially shorting out any links.

Blank screen with beeping sound

when a computer turns on it performs a POST (Power On Self Test) it check everything to see if everything is Kosher if so then it loads drivers then boots the OS (thanks to the BIOS) but if it come upon an error it immediately halts the POST and gives you a code...if it finds a problem after the drivers load (like the lake of an OS for example) then it would display the error rather that beep it...either way it wants to inform u of the error. based on ur situation the error was found prior to the loading of the drives. i recommend no doing anything and taking it to the geeks at geeksquad or someother PC service place (dont go to the flash attractive PC places however) hopefull the geeks at geeksquad will help you...

No visual display

It sounds like your graphics card is shot. If your graphics card is a dedicated graphics card, you might be able to get it fixed/replaced; if it is embedded, then you are probably going to have to buy a whole new display screen.
