Evesham Quest 610 Plus Cmos reset

I have been trying to install a SoDimm which was supplied by an internet supplier.

The machine will not boot with the 1gb stick in place but works fine with the current 512mb and 256mb sticks.

The supplier has asked me to reset the Cmos which I believe involves shorting out a link on the Motherboard which is a MAM2070 series 5 ?.
The guy who owns the laptop did not get any documentation with it and Evesham went belly up a few days later.

    Hi thanks for the input , however most motherboards have a specific set of contacts to use for this purpose.

    It is just a case of finding out where they are so that if possible you do not take half of the laptop to bits to to do the reset .



    I understand that to remove the battery you need to take out the keyboard etc.



    I am now not sure if the Evesham Quest was in fact an Evesham machine , someone has told me that it was a badged Medion



    Onward and Upward !!!

    It transpires that the Evesham 610 will only accept Samsung memory which is made for Samsung by a dedicated company

    Machine is now running on 1.5Gig of Ram

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.

Laptop not working. says disk read error occurred. tried ctrl+alt+delete but saus phoenix secure core (tm) set up itility and enter pass word. I dont know the psss word.


What you have seems top be one of two issues, plus the password problem. Either the hard drive has malfunctioned in the laptop and the OS cannot read the disk to boot up, or possibly the BIOS/CMOS has "forgotten" where the boot device is. This can happen if there is a low CMOS battery event. In either case the laptop will revert to the BIOS/CMOS to allow the user to check settings and determine if the hard drive is being detected by the system. Unfortunately, it appears that someone has placed a BIOS password on your machine. These are not easy to get around. The only sure way to remove it is to disconnect the power cord, remove the battery, access the interior of the laptop, and remove (or unplug) the CMOS battery. Once you have done that, press and release the POWER ON button several times. This will discharge all power in the CMOS circuit and the CMOS will reset to factory defaults (no password). Then plug in or reinsert the CMOS battery, close the case, replace the battery and plug in the device and restart the system. You should then be able to access the CMOS. If the CMOS detects the hard drive on the main page, check the boot device and boot sequence menus to be sure that the HDD is the first device for bootup. If the HDD is not detected, or if the HDD is detected and all settings are correct and you still cannot boot to the drive due to the read error, you may need to replace the hard drive. If you have the recovery disc or an original OS install disk, you may be able to boot to it and attempt a repair install, where the system will try to fix whatever happened to the OS. If there is simply a corrupt file, the repair install may fix the issue, If the error in a physical one in the system area of the hard drive, you may be out of luck.

No display on monotor and not booting properly


This mother board requires an additional 12 volt 4 pin supply connection.
This connection is a reference voltage for your video and if the connection is not made or the supply is not supplying the correct voltage, you will experience the symptoms you have.
Either way, you should disconnect the board from the supply and check all caps for possible crowning or leakage.
While disconnected, the supply is called a switching supply and may reset.
Remove your memory, CPU and CMOS battery.
In the time you have the board out for inspection, you should have cleared any BIOS and CMOS setting being held in memory.
Blow the board out and re-install all you removed units, trying the motherboard 1 component at a time.
Good luck, hope it was just a simple reset.

I have a voyager with a battery problem. Who now owns Evesham Micros and where do I get spares?


You may not need to go to Evesham direct. Your battery will be made by another supplier (such as Mitac), who will probably provide a generic OEM part number. Soem of the old Eveshams used to be based on IPC machines from Germany.

Evesham quest a240 looses the clock settings when switched off


Needs a new bios battery. Mine lasted 6 months before giving up. However you can leave the laptop plugged into the mains power when computer is switched off and the date/time will be kept. Otherwise change the bios battery or reset the time each time you use it. I phone Evesham and they said that the bios battery is soldered to the chassis on this model and so would need to be returned to the factory for this to be replaced. Since Evesham are now defunct you would need to get a PC repair shop to replace the battery. Is easy to do.

Memory upgrade for laptop


Older laptops can be VERY fussy about the memory ... you have to have the exact same 'speed' .. I had a similar problem after trying to upgrade an old machine that took slow memory (PC100) with a FASTER (PC133) module ...

NB> Some VERY old machines would not take 'double sided' modules ... check the manufacturers specs ..

Memeory does not show up


sure.

step one...same or different maker(not that important, but nice to know)

step two..speed of the memory(usually in nanoseconds) these need to be within 25% of each other, max. Same is the best

step three..i don't see the processor compatibility speed on the second set you installed. First one is 266MHz..what's the second set rated at?

I know it fits mechanically, but that's only the basics with memory swapping.
