Is this a clip for holding something in place or a jumper like this one? little clip - 5269983d5c31a7ca link if picture does not show ( scroll halfway down to see jumper photo.

if it looks like this , bend the two pins it goes on apart just a tiny bit before you replace it on the pins, this will add enough tension when you put the jumper on to keep it from freely falling offf

I have a singer ultralock 14u34 - the right needle thread keeps coming undone. anyone have a fix for this??

"Coming undone" What do you mean? Is it breaking while sewing? Is it too short and is slipping back through the needle?

If it's breaking, try changing the needle. If i's slipping back... give it some length when you thread.... and at the end of a seam Run it out... 10 inches before you cut it off close to the fabric. That little bit of thread waste will make you feel much better about your serger.

Replace bios battery

FOLLOW Anti-Static Precautions

Anti-Static Precautions:
Your body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit), the delicate hardware components inside a computer.

Relieve your body of Static BEFORE, reaching inside your unplugged from power, computer.

Computer on a table, computer unplugged from power, computer case open;
TOUCH an unpainted surface of the metal frame, of the open computer case.
This action will relieve your body of Static.

IF, you leave your computer in the middle of working on it, be SURE to Touch the metal frame again, upon your return.

Motherboard installed in computer case, the CMOS battery, (BIOS battery), is located at the Bottom/Right corner; above the four Red SATA connectors.

The CMOS Battery holder has a lock clip on one side.
This clip is eased to the Outside edge, in order to release the CR2032 CMOS Battery. (A type of watch battery)

Suggest use a stiff plastic object to release lock clip.
Most however, use a small Jewelers flat tipped screwdriver.

You want to JUST press on the Lock Clip itself.

The battery should just pop-up a little. Then a fingernail is used to lift that side up, to access the battery.

When reinstalling remember the Positive ( + ) side ALWAYS goes UP.

After locking the new battery in, make sure no cables were accidentally pulled loose.
Also just for ease of mind, try to push the Ram Memory module/s in ('Stick') more. Make sure the Locks on both ends are locked in place.

A lot of times the Ram Memory modules get bumped loose, accidentally.

Close the computer case. Plug computer back into power.
WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer on.

Go to the taskbar at the bottom of the Windows screen, and to the right.
-> Right-click on the Time.
Now reset the Date/Time to what it should be.
Need guidance on that post back in a Comment.

It sounds as if your on-board graphics has stopped working. If you have a graphics card to try installing it. That may solve your problem. If not you will have to contact Dell about a motherboard replacement. the last time I looked at a Dell XPS system you can't install a retail motherboard in it.

It does not start, gives one long beep (about 2-3 seconds) silence and beep again

Switching DDR cards solved the problem. I was getting long beeps every 2 seconds. No short beeps. Just one long beep every 2 seconds. Thanks Josh Whitehead.

Still will not boot

5~6 seconds of real time OR your estimate? perhaps you need to be more patient and let the motherboard current drain out sufficiently before trying to POST...

10 minutes is overkill I know but go off and do something else and then come back, a watched pot never boils eh?

Canoscan lide 60 drive cord problem

Drive cable is attached in two places. One at the hinge end of the scanner. The other at the control panel end. The hinge end connection is a simple ball-end that slips into the slot. The control end fixing is more complicated. The wire cable at this end has a spring attached. This is fixed to a plastic fitting which clips into place. Look carefully the plastic fitting. Fit the spring over the small peg and take the cable round the radiused part of the plastic fitting. And refit the plastic clip to the scanner body.
c21b280.jpgFiddlly but doable.
The cable often comes loose when someone investigates how to take the scanner to pieces. Underneath they see a round pin with a small rectangle on each side. They press the round pin in slide the piece of plastic in the rectangle and hey presto they'll undone the cable. Oooops!!!!!!!!

Tyan motherboard

No replacement is available, and none is needed, the RAM should work without it. Just make sure you push in the RAM all the way, so it's properly seated; usually, the clip will pop into the notch on its own, when its fully seated. If the RAM isn't in all the way, the computer wont recognize it, or may not boot up. There's a few exceptions, when the clip is needed to hold the RAM down, e.g. in laptops and certain server motherboards, where the RAM folds in against the motherboard.

Thread keeps coming unthreaded in the machine

the green thread needs to go under the brown thread between the clip and the brown needle. I had this problem too.
