You need to listen to your C400 as it boots for further hints as to wether your problem is hardware or software.

At power on a number of events occur,then if the POST (power on self test) completes you get a single beep. If you are getting more than one beep it is important to note how many.

This will aid in figuring out what hardware is involved.

After POST your system starts operating system input.

If you get to the point that it starts to load your OS then if you get a succesful load I would go back and figure out when did the problem start, (Have you loaded new software) if so you might have a restore point you can go back to.

( To access the System Retsore Wizard, click Start, and then click Help and Support. Click Performance and Maintenance, click Using System Restore to undo changes, and then click Run the System Restore Wizard.)

If you fail before the operating system loading screen then consider you might have loose memory chips (you did say it was a laptop and could have be jostled) Loose memory might affect the first 64 MB of Ram used for the load instructions.

If you get the blue screen after you OS loads you might want to reload your OS, but I would do Scan disk / Defrag First in that order. Scan disk will identify bad hard drive sectors and attempt repair. Defrag will consolidate your software. These two should be run monthly especially if you delete any files regularly.

Spa Pools, setting up spa pool with chemicals etc


Hi curlyall,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your problem is: You have just brought a secound hand spa, you are woundering what sort of chemicals etc are required, there are no instuctions with it

If your spa is the type that you fill once, then you must treat it just like a swiming pool. Go to the local pool supplies store. They will be happy to set you up. Don't forget PH testing kit! Test it every day. And I prefer non chlorine chemicals. It's also helpfull to have a small submersible pump in case you need to replace the water sometime. Happy soaking!

Feel free contact me again!

Dell C400 will not boot using LCD screen when cold


I have seen this problem before, after booting to the external monitor go into the display settings and try setting the resolution to 1024 X 768 and the color settng to 16 bit or preferably 32 bit. If you can do this, then shut down the laptop remove the external monitor and try booting on the LCD display. BPCS
