Remove battery and power lead - press and hold the power ket for 60 seconds. put in power lead and it may start.
If you are getting beeps or lights flashing then you have a Power On Start up Test (POST) error. This means you have a hardware failure in the system. The actual error depends on the motherboard and the error beeps. Solutions vary depending on the error, can be from replace memory to motherboard is shot. Please let me know if you are getting beep codes, this may need professional repair.
Does not start and no beep codes, then the power or the motherboard has failed, this will need professional repair.
Hi. It refers to two symptoms. No power just means the machine is dead and nothing happens when you press the power button on the computer. POST stands for Power On Self Test. This is what happens just after you press the power button - the computer checks devices connected to it then starts to load Windows or whatever operating system you have. If the computer is dead, then it is often caused by a faulty power supply (metal box where the power cord goes in. If it won't POST then an error may be displayed to tell you where it stopped during POST, or error beeps may sound to tell the technician which part of POST has failed. Sometimes, you may hear the fans and hard disk, but the monitor stays dead. This is usually caused by the RAM coming loose in it's socket or the video card coming loose/ failing.
my automatic cleaning setting in my oven will not heat up. I set "clean" on both dials and put the lock on, the fan comes on but no heat. Is there a certain system to turning it all on and the timer so it will work?
You could try re-seating your ram and your video card if applicable. 2 beeps generally upon post depending on the bios is video or unstable ram. Depending on how many sticks you have on the board try re-seating them if that doesn't work diagnose the faulty stick by putting them in 1 at a time. Hope this helps
The beep pattern is a beep code and is how the motherboard communicates errors during the early booting process otherwise known as the POST (Power On Self-Test). List restart the computer and listen for the pattern of short and long beeps. Soltek does not list the beep codes in their manual, instead they refer to Phoenix who manufacturers the AwardBIOS on your motherboard. There are only two POST beep codes; a single long beep followed by two short beeps (Video error) and anything else. Apparently anything else you hear *probably* refers to RAM problems.
Since you?ve already tested both one of the remaining options is to install a *POST* card (about $30 to $50), boot the PC and read the hexadecimal error code for a more detailed clue to what failed. If you ask around you might find someone who has one and may be willing to loan it to you.
Another option is to write off the motherboard since the cost of the test equipment it about 1/3 the cost of a new board.
