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?

    Thanks for your feedback.

    I have managed to remove the hinge covers but these are not attached to the facia. I think it is the facia that has to be unclipped, but can't see where, and of course don't want to damage the keyboard.

    Does nayone know how to unclipo the facia please?

    Eventually from another source got the answer, eureka!

    Essentially the Evesham Voyager 6400 was made by Mitac, Mitac model 8355.

    There is a very good article on how to disassemble it onhttp://www.overclockers.com/tips1192/ - the facia slides off to the right!

    You're absolutely right on this - I did eventually sus this out, and in fact the baord was shot. Mitac does provide replacement parts for many Evesham lappies (UK 01952 207 200) at reasonable prices....

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,

Intel pentium - booting up ok, but nothing shows on screen. Pressed F12 came up with error message error setting up the MD3 over power button. Also, unable to locate media direct BIOS table.


If your computer is showing nothing on screen it is not booting up OK. Are there any beep codes being given during bootup? One single beep at the end of the POST sequence is OK, anything more means some kind of hardware error found during bootup. Media Direct 3 is a Dell product that has caused a number of problems on its computers. See Dell MediaDirect . Your option may be limited to contacting Dell support.

Abit av8 bios post codes 8.3 - 8.6 - 9.c What is failing on boot ? I get one long beep followed by 4 short beeps. I have swapped video cards and reflashed the bios with no help. If I reboot 2 or 3...


I still did not find beep code that match your problem..

Anyways here are the common beep codes for your motherboard.. it might help you too.
1. No beep - no reaction, the mother board is dead, power supply problem, processor and or ram problem.
2. 1beep - board is working fine.
3. One long beep then it shuts down - cpu problem, your processor is not working or missing.
4. 1short beep - system boots normally
5. 2short beeps - CMOS setting error.
6. 1long 1short beep - dram error
7. 1long 2 short beep - video card or monitor not connected
8. 1long 3 short beep - keyboard error.
9. 1long 9short beep - ROM error
10. Long beep - memory card is missing or not connected
11. Short beep - power supply error
12 Four beeps - there is no fan detected on Fan1 or Fan2 header. make sure to attach or reset CMOS bios to factory setting.


Hope this gave you an idea of your problem..

Much appreciated if you rate this help..thanks..

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.

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.

is there a post beep when the pc is switched on. check the memory if it is a beep beep beep sound , also disconect the hard drive, dvd drive, floppy, and any usb devices and see if it boots up. if that fails it does seem like the mother board, also check the cpu fan has it stoped. also find out the power switch conector on the mother board, from the base unit switch to the mother board. also chech the power connector from the power supply to the mother board , on newer boards there are two that go to the mother board its self , a big one and a very small one .
