It sounds like the system is corrupted. What I would do is to get your instal disk to boot up holding down the c key on your keyboard. Once you have booted up go to the file menu and run disk utility to verify and repair the hard drive. Then go to the instal menu and instal a fresh system remembering to preserve the users data so you do not wipe anything. Hopefully this will work.

While uploading some documents from my firelite it started making a repetitive bleeping noise and the blue led light is continuously flashing. Can you explain what this means please? The uploading process...


Your FireLite device is "dying". Copy the files that you can, and burn some CD/DVD disks.
Then, either exercise the warranty to get it replaced, or just buy another FireFly.

Cannot install Windows XP Pro using the setup disk. I can delete the old partition and reformat the hard disk using NTFS, but when setup starts copying files it fails to copy a file (never the same file)...


It's possible that your disk-drive is "failing", and it's about to "die".

Buy a new disk-drive, connect it, and try to install to it.

Other possibilities:
* bad RAM in your computer is messing-up the file-copy operations, and the CD-reading operations
* dying motherboard is malfunctioning,
* scratched Windows CD-ROM media
* malfunctioning CD-reader device.

My mother board has power but no ms dos bleeps when i boot .... it gives power to every device like hard disk and floppy and so on but no ms dos bleep ?


check whether motherboard has inbuilt speaker or speaker connected externally.
Externally means check the proper connection is given for the speaker.
If speaker is connected externally in proper manner still no beep means problem is in the external spaeker

I can't seem to open my external acomdata hard drives. My computer doesn't recognize them and when they do open they will close in a few minutes.


Either the power-supply for the external drive is dying,
or the disk-drive inside the external case is dying.

Quick, make a "backup" of all the files on your ACOMDATA, before it totally "dies".

If it still is under warranty, exercise the warranty, and replace it.

I have Amilo L1300.It will not power on.dc plug and charger have been checked both ok.It was working ok then tried to power on nothing at all no bleeps nothing.I have tried to get hold off a repair manual...


Try taking out battery and plug in power. If it works, battery is faulty. If not,
Try taking out your hard disk plug in power, if it works, hard disk is faulty. If not,
Try taking out memory card, if there's a sound, memory card faulty. If no sound, it's your motherboard that is causing the error.

Note: If machine is under warranty no need to pay for the repairs.

My PS3's hard disk file system is corrupted


There is an alternate way to restore your HDD. Turn off your system and when u see the red light, hold the power button in front until you hear a total of 4 beeps (1 alone, 1 alone, 2 together). It usually works on second try. it should show a screen and say hook up controller with a usb cord. Then it should show i think 6 options. Choose the restore option. it should work.

Hope it works and wish you all the best!
P.S.- I just got the 80010514 error on my ps3 and my ps3 games dont work anymore :(

New Mobo & Processor but no Bleeps etc


Could be the power supply is not strong enough to power the system. Replace the power supply with one that is between 350 - 450 watts. This should provide ample power to the system.

Wont switch on


Hi,

Did you try to reset the phone.

Normal Reset (*#7780#) : Restores ini files from rom but preserves user data (photos, 3rd party apps etc)

Deep Reset (*#7370#) : This reformats completely the C: drive. All applications and files stored on this drive will be lost and clean default files will be rewritten.

Hard reset
Press Call + 3 + * simultaneously during the bootup phase, forces the N95 to do a complete wipe of internal memory.
This will reset the phone back to 100% standard factory configuration.
