If you can feel it spinning up that does mean the drive motor is getting power, drives a generally quite resilient and will usually survive a short fall. However the enclosures are not so tough in a lot of cases.

Your best bet is to take the whole thing to your local computer store and ask them to move the drive into another enclosure to test it. Most of the time, with these symptoms it will work fine in the new enclosure. If it doesn't work in a new enclosure, you will likely need the help of a pro.

Try the above suggestion and if it doesn't work let me know by commenting back here. Include your country in the comments and I will recommend a suitable firm if you require assistance recovering data off a damaged drive.

I have a Gateway 310 XL H desk top PC. After the storm, Isaac, It won't power on. The red and green lights come on, the red goes off after a short time. The monitor flashes a manfacture logo then

The system is powered up if green light on, the hard disk is powered up if red-light on for a few seconds then goes off, but I assume it's not loading up after that. You have no output to video.

Try holding f2 or f4 to load default bios when turning on. If that doesnt work then That would point to me that there is a problem with either:

1) processor burnt out, or needs refitting following a knock to the case causing a bad connection.

2) ram burnt out or not correctly installed. Try refitting the ram or using a different combination of ram.

3. Bios chip burnt out. Sometimes you can literally see the chip is slightly melted.

4. Other motherboard fault, look for melted chip or damaged component.

5. Psu faulty or not connected properly. Check connections, or bench test with another psu.

Have you moved the pc recently? Sometimes dust builds up under processor or along ram, and when moving pc giving it a slight knock can cause bad connection. If dusty, remove clean and re install.

Hope it helps.

Hi Linda. Sometimes if there is a blown fuse or faulty connector on the battery leads, the charger thinks the batteries are charged as the voltage coming out of the charger rises to the high level. Some chargers will cut out if this happens. It is probably not the charger.
Make sure the batteries are plugged in correctly, sometimes during transport they will get knocked and become disconnected.
Also make sure that the battery terminals are not loose where the wires connect to the batteries.
Good luck. Neil.

Atwood Model # GC6AA-10E. When I try to start unit on gas it tries to start 3 times and red warning light comes on. When I try electrical the red warning light comes on. Have cleaned the contacts on...

Normally the red light stays on for hydro operation, so within 1/2 hr or so you should have hot water. Red light on gas means problem lighting. A few things to check. Make sure switch at back of water heater is on as well as breaker in panel, for hydro operation.
As far as gas side goes, try going outside and drop cover down, and pull the connectors of and on a couple of times at the spark module, just to make sure you have clean contact, and have someone try switch after, and let me know if it's at least trying to spark. If still not working, there should be a thermal cut-off switch in the brown wire running to center area of water heater to the thermostat, and ECO. ( where square piece of black foam covers them) That thermal cut-off has a clear plastic sleeve over it. Take that out of the circuit. Simply pull it apart at both ends, and then connect wire from spark module directly to THERM/ECO, where it was before.( your just eliminating that piece, and going direct.) See if it lights now, and let me know. Do you have a 12 volt test light, or multimeter? Also, with it turned off, take your finger and push in between spade connectors on the THERM, and ECO, and make sure there isn't a little reset in center that has tripped.

Ran into wall with ranger wheelchair now green light comes on and flashes then goes to red and cuts off chair will not go at all please help!

Sounds like you've knocked the joystick off-center in its gymbal mount. This is a pretty common problem since the joystick usually takes the first hit into walls, doorframes, and also happens a lot when the chairs get run under table and counters. The power control module has a "prevent" circuit which will not allow the chair to boot-up if the joystick is not top-dead-center, otherwise, the chair could be turned on while pushing the joysitck full-speed forward, etc. and you could inadvertantly run over someone or drive off a cliff!

There's nothing you can do to repair this yourself. If the chair's under warranty, call your provider for a replacement. If not, call your banker as the new joystick is about $1,000.00. There's a company I found that advertises it can repair these but I have never used them. It'd be worth a try to save all the money. Here's the link.

Good luck

Sounds like you knocked the vacuum pipe off at the pump cap when you had it apart. Take it apart again and check the vacuum pipe for connection, blockages and being trapped between cases when you reassembled it.
