Try resetting the BIOS. Maybe some of the settings were lost if the motherboard's BIOS battery died.

On boot up on my Dimension 3100C I receive the following error message: Drive 1 not found:Parallel ATA, PATA-0 (PRI IDE Master) Alert! chipset heat sink not detected System halted!


first off your going to ewant to hit f2 or f12 to get into setup and you are going to want to change boot oder to your hard drive. i then would open the comoputer up by taking the side of the case off and checking your cpu. u are going to wanna make sure there is a heatsink or fan securly on your cpu. if not this could over heat and burn your cpu up. heat sinks look like thisbadboy616.png

Have emachines T6528 graphics problem


if it doesn't boot at all .( this is the reason that you see that message on the screen it means that no video signal came out from the computer ) ..try to change the cable that leads from the pc to the monitor first ...and if the problem its still on ...it have to be something related with the Ram memory or the CPU ....cause these 2 are the only things that can make a system to do not boot at all ...if any other device will not work ..the pc will still boot to bios ..or will still show the devices it finds on start ...even if is not able to succeed with the operating system boot...
so ...either it boots and you can not see anything cause the cable its damaged...( very possible cause this is the case it shows that message ...when the cable its shorted ..or unplugged ) or it doesn't starts at all cause of the memory or CPU ...

Dell logo appears and message appears INSERT BOOT DISKETTE...


A couple of things can cause this.

1] having the 'boot order' set up so that the computer looks to a removable device that has non-bootable media in it.
2] somehow the 'boot' device has lost it's 'boot' properties.

Best way to troubleshoot:
1] find the boot CD
2] re-strat the machine and enter the "BIOS setup" mode <f10>, or <DEL>; I think::verify the boot order
this should likely be: C: ; CD ; A:

allow machine to start with CD and check to see if anything on the wanted 'boot' device has been lost; sometimes it will get smashed.

Let us know what you get after this point, because I would rather give you an answer based on knowledge from this part of the exercise.

I boot my cpu but the monitor doesnt show anything


Hi again.
The beep codes you describe are memory issues or failure, take the system memory out, clean the contacts and the slots with a clean, soft, dry paintbrush. Re-seat the memory firmly and try boot the PC again.
please post back with the results

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!

Cpu is unworkable or has been change check soft menu


What is the model number of the board?

If you were able to boot, then you defiantly got the CPU in properly. Sounds like you just need some tweaking in the bios.
