DIMM0 is one of the ram slots. I would suspect that this is the culprit.
Try booting it up off the restore disk. If that doesn't boot either, replace the ram. If it does boot fine, them I'm wrong.
I hate re-installing the OS out of hand. Try the Disk Utility on the restore CD first, or some hard drive recovery tool like DiskWarrior before you re-install the OS.

Sounds like a kernel panic code. You may be missing a piece of the OS code due to a Hard Drive error from a power issue or whatever. You may need to reinstall your OS. Start up from the cd and save all your data you can to a flash drive or external hard drive and then do a clean install.

Best Answer:you need the anti-theft code to reactivate the stereo. there are a few ways to get it

1) if you have the paperwork that came with the car, there should be a white credit card sized piece of plastic with the owners manual that has the code on it.

2) if you can't find the card, look on the inside walls of the glove box for a white sticker. That sticker should have a 5 digit code. that is your anti-theft code for the radio.

3) if you can't find either, then follow this procedure
with the key in the igintion turned "ON" but the radio turned off, hold in the radio preset station buttons numbered 1 & 6 at the same time. Then, while holding them in, turn the radio ON. You will see a set of 5 numbers and letters come up on the display starting with the letter U. release the station buttons. A second set of numbers and letter will come up starting with the letter L.

write both sets of those numbers down. that is the serial number for the radio. then, call any Honda dealer service department and ask them to look up the code for you. it takes about a minute.

if you bought the car new, call the dealer you bought it from as they may have the code on file without having to go through looking it up

hope that helps

Remove the hard drive and reseat (reconnect). Check BIOS by pressing an F key during boot. Look on the screen for correct Function key. Might be F2 key. Verify BIOS recognizes the drive. It must be listed! There is no going forward if it's not. Check boot order and make internal hard drive first. Save and restart.

My Mac looks like a Negative but almost like a sketch- there is still color but you can hardly see writing etc. I went to the black/white mode and white/black mode- and that did not help it any.

failing that, try booting in other user accounts try plugging the monitor in after its booted up try booting it in safe mode does it still occur?
failing all of that try resetting the PRAM/NVRAM

Just bought a 2002 ford explorer need to know how to get the door lock code.

there is one in the owners manual printed on a card, otherwise you will have to write down your vin number and contact the dealer for this. It's the only way.

Error message 5100 on Canon i560 printer

Hi You can Try
Same old errors
Error Code 5100
Solution 1:
Clean the timing strip.

Solution 2:
The purge cap (the white sliding mechanism that the print head parks to when it's not in use) may be not lubricated well enough .

Lubricate the sliders with some white grease (don't get it on the small wipers or the black caps); this repair probably require to remove the right panel off of the printer to gain access to the purge mechanism.

All The Best: Pineworks
