SOURCE: 99 Jeep Cherokee Sport, 4.0L -won't start

you need to have it connected to an OBD2 machine and watch if you are missing the cam sensor showing RPMs
or if your missing crank sensors RPMs,
it could be a wiring problem or computer if your seeing the RPMs from both sensors,and the last thing i would check is hooking up a fuel gauge to the reed valve and watch what fuel pressure you have while cranking,if the cam sensor is the culprit it will turn the fuel off after the cranking.

SOURCE: Hp laptop... black screen... caps lock flashes 5

When the Caps Lock flashes, it is then being used in a diagnostic mode. 5 times flashing means a problem with the System Board.

Motherboard.

I don't doubt it.

Two common problems, all based on one issue.
Overheating.

1) Problem One;

Primer;
The Processor, and the GPU are the two hardware components that produce the most heat.

[ GPU = Graphics Processing Unit. Slang? Graphics chipset,

Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integrated_circuit

GPU,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GPU ]

It could be something as simple as foam has melted, and melted down onto the motherboard, near the Processor socket. Removal puts the laptop back into service again.

It could be much more complicated, and follow an issue that has beleaguered the HP Pavilion dv2000 series, dv6000 series, and dv9000 series.

The cooling system for the GPU is inefficient. Allows the GPU to overheat.
Constant overheating partially melts the solder connections of the GPU to the motherboard.

The graphics chipset (GPU) is mounted to the motherboard with a BGA surface mount.
Ball Grid Array,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ball_grid_array

To explain the BGA surface mount;
Compare to an older Intel Pentium 4 processor, and it's Socket 478 processor socket,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_478

The processor has contact pins on the bottom. (478 of 'em) These line up with matching socket holes in the Socket 478 processor socket. (478)

With a BGA surface mount there are no contact pins, nor socket holes.
Solder Balls take the place of the contact pins, and Copper Pads take the place of the socket holes.

The graphics chipset's Solder Balls, are lined up with the matching Copper Pads on the motherboard.
Heat is then applied at a specific temperature, and length of time.

This procedure melts the Solder Balls, and solders the graphics chipset to the Copper Pads.
(Motherboard)

With constant overheating the solder connections that were created, start to melt. This creates a poor connection.

The professional method to repair this problem, is to use a BGA Rework Machine, to Properly re-solder the connections.

Due to the location of repair shops that have a BGA Rework Machine, and the C-O-S-T, many are attempting to perform the procedure with a non-professional method.

A thin metal shield is cutout in the middle, for the graphics chipset. This shield is set over the graphics chipset, and lays on the motherboard. Heat is then kept just to the graphics chipset, and the other components on the motherboard are protected.

Heat is applied with a propane torch, or a hot air gun, (Not hair dryer), in a circular (Spiral), pattern to the graphics chipset. With a more proper method used, the tip of a thermometer that can read this heat range, is laid on the chipset, and is used to keep the chipset at a specific temperature.

(Too much heat will burn up the chipset. Too little will not properly remelt the solder connections. A Cold Solder joint, or joints, will result)

The heat from the heating instrument, (Propane Torch/Hot Air Gun), is rotated around in a spiral pattern on the chipset. Constant moving around to distribute the heat evenly.
(You do not want a 'hot spot')

When the specific heat range is met, the heating instrument is slowly moved away from the chipset.

Move up an inch or so, keep spiraling. Then move up another inch or so, and keep spiraling the heat source. Slowly move up in increments while spiraling. S-L-O-W-L-Y back away. Method is used so that the chipset slowly cools down. Otherwise a cold solder joint, or joints, could result.
(Right back to where you started)

This link is to a video that shows one style of the procedure. It is not an advertisement for the video, just linked for the procedure information,

Elite book 2640 blue light light on,yellow light flashing,screen blank


yellow light sounds like charge indication.If you press the power botton the fan should spin and you should be able to open the DVD by pressing the button on the tray.These are 1st steps to check motherboard function.If there is RAM installed remove battery after turning off power supply.Open memory door and reseat RAM.Replace cover then battery - power on.Any picture?Try an LCD monitor - no picture? Try different RAM or 1 stick at a time,remember to remove battery or RAM will be damaged.Still no picture - remove battery and try with AC adapter only.Still no picture - remove AC hold down power button for 30-sec plug in AC only and press power button.Still no picture - check CMOS battery if it uses a CR2032 button cell it may be flat.This can cause a no boot situation.If the CMOS has a plug or is soldered to the board that should be OK.The button cell may be hidden in the chassis anyway and to change it will require disassembly.So replace it when doing the cleaning.Still no picture - GPU is faulty.The unit should be disassembled and a reflow of GPU done,as well as cleaning all dust and fluff from the fan and other cooling system components.Airflow restriction of the cooling system is the cause of overheating and GPU issues.Google disassembly for your laptop and reflow method for GPU.If you have no experience with disassembly a step by step guide is crucial.Breaking parts is easy so extreme care is very important.

Temp, fuel, speed, RPM, Mileage guages are not working, Check engine light,abslight and alarm set lights are on. What is the problem and solution?


I had the exact same problem. The next thing you'll experience is immediate engine stall/quit right after startup.
Found the solution on another site: the fix is an easy do-it-yourself project: the solder used to connect the multi-function wiring plugs to the instrument panel has become brittle. (widely known to Chrysler and many repair shops. Their suggested fix is to replace the entire instrument cluster for 2-300 dollars (parts only; add several hours for labor).
For an hour of your time and a small battery-powered soldering pencil, you can simply re-solder each of the pin connections to the circuit board. Use new flux-core solder; it will make a lasting repair.
There's a You-Tube video out there showing the entire dash area disassembly and cluster removal. I did it twice; the first time, I only re-soldered one of the plug sockets. Disassembly took an hour- reassembly took 15 minutes. I should've re-soldered both. Second time, disassembly and reassembly each took 15 minutes. The actual soldering took about five minutes.
While apart, you can replace any burned-out dashboard illumination lightbulbs, too.

My msi ex465 wont start up on battery mode only the power lead on , while on ac it does but i need to unplug for several times before it will do,,, i have done reformatting it for several times...hope...


If the laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced. Rechargeable batteries will fail if stored in a discharged state for long periods.

Acer 4745g black screen problem


So, if you can hear startup sound then motherboard, RAM and HDD is OK! Try to connect it with external monitor, if it's working on it, then problem in LCD, LCD light or LCD cable. If not working with external monitor then it is video card problem, if card is integrated then you need to reball or change at all south bridge on the motherboard, if video is as module card then just replace it with compatible one.
If LCD cable - disassemble laptop to get LCD cable and test each wire with any multimetr with sound beep and replace it if needed.
If LCD light - try to take LCD screen under good lamp then power on laptop and carefully look to dark screen if you see very dark Windows boot screen then you need to disassemble LCD housing, disassemble LCD, remove and replace LCD lamp with working one.
If all this cant help, then you need to replace LCD at all.

Three long beeps may signify a keyboard error, and 3 short may refer to memory error. These are best guesses, because MSI uses several BIOS manufactures. Test your RAM one chip at a time to help isolate bad dimm.

It has not got a complicated power supply. I don't understand why it would take 5 weeks to repair. Parts are available from Mouser/Farnell/RS etc.
Repairs would not be expensive. Replacement is another story but a competent engineer will repair the faulty unit.

I have 2 512 cards installed and the computer only shows that I have only 512 installed and it should be 1 gig?? What would be the cause of this?


There could be many reasons,
1 Either the RAM slot is not working
2 or the RAM card(s) are not OK
3 or the RAMs are not compatable(not of the same specs)

Solution
1 Remove both the RAM cards, clean the metal joints in both the RAMs and the RAM slots
2 Remove power, remove all power source, remove power cables including all the battery
3 Keep presssing the power switch ON for a few mins, Do....ON... OFF, ON... OFF WITHOUT any POWER
4 Replace battery, power adaptor, power cables etc
5 Insert one of the RAMs in 1st RAM slot, power on, check if it's OK, Switch OFF, remove the RAM
6 Do the above process for the other RAM, now check if that works, use the same RAM slot
7 Now do the above two steps for the 2nd RAM slot

It will give you a rough idea of where is the issue.....either RAMs are not OK or the slots have issues or there is a compatibility issue among the RAM cards.....

Pls reply back and leave a feedback

Electric current does not get through from the adapter to the laptop. the led light does not turn on but the adapter's led light does.


DC Jack diagnosis:
1. Test power adapter for output voltage. Bend the power cable in various directions while doing this to be sure that there is no broken conductors in the cable.
2. If power adapter is Ok, connect it & see if the power LED on the laptop will glow when you jiggle the power connector in various directions. If yes, then the DC jack might be loose or damaged, & need to be either re-soldered or replaced.
3. If not, then disassemble the laptop. Remove any components that attach to the laptop's motherboard first (e.g. battery, hard drive, RAM, wireless card, optical drive, ... etc.)
4. Next, remove the keyboard & the LCD screen.
5. Finally, unscrew all screws that hold the upper cover & lower cover together so that you could gain access to the motherboard.
6. Inspect the solder points connecting the DC jack to the motherboard. Make sure that none of them is loose. If any, re-solder them.
7. Inspect the center pin in the DC jack. Make sure that it is not broken or loose. If it is, then you might need to replace the DC jack.
8. When you are done, re-assemble back the laptop.
