Casio WK-3500 How to save keyboards/tones


Yes there's a way. Use Registration Memory (I shorten it to: RM) ..
RM have 8 banks and 4 bank numbers. For changing banks, press BANK several times.
Example :
  • choose tone (eg:500)
  • press BANK where you want to store. (eg:1)
  • while holding down STORE button,press registration number where you want to store (eg:3) Release store button. Finish.
Next :
  • choose tone (eg:038)
  • press BANK where you want to store. (eg:1)
  • while holding down STORE button,press registration number where you want to store (eg:4) Release store button. Finish.
Anytime you press RM bank 1 number 3 (one key), the sound is 500
Anytime you press RM bank 1 number 4 (one key), the sound is 038.

Notes:
  • RM not only can save tone, but can store style,overall setting live performance,etc.
  • RM functions are disabled while you are using the SMF player, song memory or demo.
  • RM are also disabled while you are using the floppy disk drive.

What is 3-3-2 beep tone meaning


System doeIf there is one DIMM in the system the memory row/bank may be disabled when there is a memory failure. The system will not boot because it has no memory to use. If the DIMM is replaced with one of the exact same type and size, then the system will continue not to boot. BIOS cannot tell when a DIMM has been replaced with one of the exact type and size, therefore BIOS believes it is still the bad DIMM and will not use it.

Here are two possible workarounds:

1. After replacing the defective DIMM, continue to reboot the system until you hear the "no memory" post beep sequence (3-3-3) during POST (no video display). After three (3) incomplete boots, a "062 three consecutive boot failure. Using default CMOS configuration caches are off" error will occur. At this point BIOS will go back to the default settings and begin to use the new DIMM. However, if you have disabled the 3 boot fail count (this setting may not be available in all servers) in Setup, then BIOS will not turn the DIMM row/bank back on.
-=OR=

2. Remove the DIMM. Power on the system until the "no memory" post beep sequence (3-3-3) is heard. The memory row/bank will now be marked as being empty. Power off the system and put a good DIMM back into the system. The memory DIMM row/bank is re-enabled and the system boots normally.

NOTE: If more than one DIMM (or more than one DIMM set) is installed in the server and one memory (or one memory set) row/bank is disabled due to a memory failure then, the user must go into setup and re-enable the row/bank after replacing the bad DIMM.

Where to find serial number of laptop in bios


Only a few brands of laptop put the serial number in bios. If you are able to get into Windows, there are a number of freeware programs that are able to get the serial numbers. Search Google for "Freeware serial number finder".

I want to update my bios


Oh?

Kvpsy,

The information tells me;

1) Operating System: Windows XP Pro with Service Pack 3 (SP/3)

2) Processor: (CPU) Intel Pentium 4, 3.06GHz,
(Or also stated as 3.066MegaHertz) {3.066MHz}
Uses an LGA775 processor socket.

Front Side Bus = 133MHz.
(Intel processors are 'Quad Pumped'. 133MHz is the Internal Clock. 533MHz is the External Clock.
4 x 133 = 532. Number is rounded up to 533)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Pentium_4_microprocessors#Prescott_.2890.C2.A0nm.29_2

Scroll down.
Prescott Core, 90nm architecture.
Pentium 4 HT model 524.
sSpec number on top of the Processor, (Heatsink removed), is either
SL8ZZ, or SL9CA

3) Motherboard manufacturer name, and model number:
Intel D101GGC
Version AAD357

3) Motherboard chipset:
ATI Radeon Xpress RC410 = Northbridge chip

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_ATI_chipsets#Comparison_of_Northbridges_2

IXP450/SB450 = Southbridge chip

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_ATI_chipsets#Comparison_of_Southbridges_2

4) GPU: (Graphics Processing Unit, or slang = graphics chipset)
Built into the motherboard chipset; ATI Radeon 200 series with 256MB's of graphics ram memory.
(? Really? I would think more like 64MB for Integrated Graphics.
Are you running a graphics card, in the PCI-Express slot on the motherboard? Got one in one of the PCI slots?)

5) Ram Memory:
2 Ram memory slots
DDR Sdram at 400MegaHertz. Also known as PC3200.

Maximum TOTAL amount is 2048MB. (2GB)
Amount of ram memory that installed now, 1024MegaByte. (Or also stated as 1GigaByte)
960MB is what shows.
(64MB's of ram memory is being borrowed)

32MB DRAM modules. Memory module/s ('Stick') use 5 Volts (DC)
60nanosecond to 70ns, Cas Latency of 3. (CL3)

6) Harddrive:
IDE
Western Digital WD1600AABS
150GB

7) Optical Drive:
IDE (EIDE really)
Manufacturer = LG Electronics
Model number = GH22NP21
DVD burner drive

8) C-Media CMI8738 audio (Sound) chipset

9) RTL 8139 Ethernet chipset

10) Basic Input/Output System (BIOS) manufacturer = Phoenix/Award.
Version = 6.00PG
Release date = 04/20/2006
BIOS String ID = GC11010N.86A.0311.2006.0420.1525

NOW, the message you received is -

SUGGESTION: Are you looking for a BIOS upgrade?

System BIOS is more than 2 years old. (WELL NO KIDDING!!)

Video BIOS is more than 2 years old. (Yeah? AND?)

A) AS SOON as you purchase a motherboard, the BIOS program is ALREADY out of date.

BIOS upgrades are made about 2 weeks, after the motherboard hits the market.

TWO WEEKS!!

What does this mean?

It means LEAVE IT ALONE.

If everything is working OK, DO NOT perform a BIOS upgrade.

Why?

Because for;
1) IF, the power goes out to your house/business, when you are downloading, the BIOS upgrade WILL NOT be completed.
What does that mean?
Take the motherboard out of your computer, and use it for a Frisbee.

2) IF, the BIOS upgrade is too new, and/or NOT compatible, AND if you do not save the old BIOS version, take the motherboard out of your computer, and use it for a Frisbee.

IS there a cure for ruining the BIOS program in your BIOS chipset, on your motherboard, and downloading, and installing the original one?

SURE!

Take it to a PRO, who will download the ORIGINAL BIOS, to a Floppy Disk, (Or disks), using an internal Floppy Disk drive, connected with a floppy disk ribbon cable, to your floppy drive connection on your motherboard, and put it on your motherboard.

MAYBE.

(Not shouting. Illustrating a point)

OR, if the BIOS chipset is removable, (It is soldered on the motherboard), perhaps another BIOS chipset is available, for a PRO to solder the good one back on the motherboard.

You HAVE been advised.

HOW TO ENABLE 289 DIMM D01 is disabled in server 2008.


terrible question; please add more detail

if your system has a dual CPU socket, perhaps you don't have a second cpu (where more memory banks usually require that second cpu socket to be populated in order to use the dimm slots); doubtful, but there could also be a jumper on your mobo

or maybe look in your BIOS; that's where things are enabled/disabled (i.e. server 2008, afik, doesn't have a way to specifically disable a dimm slot)

the mobo (or system) manual may have guidance for memory installation; e.g. sometimes there's a size or slot population type table (or compatibility; i.e. maybe the memory you are installing is dual rank and the system only takes single, thus it appears that the slot is disabled)

USB ports do not work


1.) Check your CMOS/Bios settings to see if any USB ports are disabled.

2.) If not, check to see that USB ports show in your operating system's device manager or settings. Enable them if they are disabled. Otherwise, you may need to reinstall the drivers that came with your model of notebook computer.

If using Windows XP, for example, go to Control Panel, System, Hardware, Device Manager, Universal Serial Bus Controllers. If the latter is not present and you have USB enabled in CMOS/Bios, you will need to install the drivers. If "Universal Serial Bus Controllers" is present, look within to see if they are all enabled and working properly.
If not, re-install the drivers.

3.) If the above does not work, you may have bad USB ports that will require service by an authorized repair service for your notebook computer.

Asus M2N-MX Motherboard 4gb Ram wont work


I had the same problem and ASUS tech support was of no help. I did however find the culpret in the BIOS setup. Go to Advanced, Chipset, NorthBridge Chipset, and Memory Configuration. Set the Bank Interleaving to Disabled and save the settings. Check these settings also while you are there:
Channel Interleaving = Auto
Enable clock to all DIMMS = Disabled
Memory Tristate = Disabled
Memory Hole = Enabled
Unganged Mode = Enabled
Power Down Enable = Enabled
Power Down Mode = Channel

Memory upgrade


I like all the information you gave. However the information you are looking for is in the manufactures web site. goto search engine and enter your computers manufactures name followed by the word "support" find the site and then look up the details for your computer. The reason I say this is because each slot can only control a certain amount of memory. The manufacture will tell you what each slot can control and also the type of memory supported by your motherboard. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT> never mix memory. Make sure of speed and capacity. If you mix diffrent speed and capacities the results could end in total failure.
