Question about Shuttle ST61G4 (811686000310) Barebone

1 Answer

Power up on ST61G4

When powering up my Shuttle it just locks with the power light and the hard drive activity lights full on. The message "NO SIGNAL" appears on my screen. Constant switching on and off with the button on the front of the machine eventually resolves the problem and it then is ok.

Any ideas anybody

Hi,

The "No Signal" display is an indication that there is no video output from your PC going towards the monitor. Cycling the power on/off a few times before the unit will start indicates there is a problem with the PC basic configuration. This may include:
1. Defective, dirty, loose memory sticks - clean or replace;
2. Defective, dirty, loose video card - clean or replace;
3. BIOS/CMOS settings too aggressive or not stable - set to default;

You can also try resetting the CMOS/BIOS to default settings by moving the reset jumper from its original position to the opposite end (1-2, then make it 2-3) temporarily. The reset jumper is normally very near the Lithium back-up battery. Alternately, removing the battery for an hour would also do the same, reset.

In some instances, it is the CPU fan blower that does not startup causing the system to halt. If so, it needs to be removed, cleaned, lubricated and re-installed.

At other times it can be cause by devices nearing end of its life. These may include the HD and the CD.

Still, this could also be caused by external devices which cannot be accessed/read at the startup such as a flashdrive.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

I have problems in sarting up my EI System laptop ,the power light is on but no display on screen


The power light will only show whether power is reaching the machine. The important light is the hard drive activity light and perhaps the wireless activity light.

If the power light is all you have you should take your laptop to the computer doctor but if the hard drive light shows activity it would be worth connecting it to a separate monitor and if it then produces a display you might be able to figure out what has happened.

What do the activity lights on the keyboard of the Dell Laptop C640 represent?


To the right of the power button and below the Dell AccessDirect button are three lights. These have a lock synbol below them. The first one from left to right is signified by a number 9, this light is turned on when the numberical keypad is enables. The center light is signified by a letter A, it is on when the uppercase letter function (Caps Lock) is enabled. the third one, far right, signified by a down arrow, is on when the scroll lock function is enabled.

The device status lights on the far right side near the front of the laptop case. The top light is the power status light, the middle light is the Hard drive activity light, the bottom light is the status light for power management, battery, AC etc.

Wont post led 3 flashes


if its the red flashing light on the tower, its the hard drive activity light.

when the monitor goes on stand by, does the tower retain power? (green light on and flashing red light sometimes?) Does your keyboard's scroll lock/num lock/caps lock keys and keyboard lights work?

Computer will not turn on


  • Blinking Amber/yellow: Initial state of LED at power up.
    Indicates system has power, but the POWER_GOOD signal is not yet active.
    If the hard drive LED is off, it is probable that the power supply needs to be replaced.
    If the hard drive LED is on, it is probable that an onboard regulator or VRM has failed.

Gateway laptop will not power on


Sounds like to me, that you do have power going to your computer(other wise your lights wouldnt be on), but that your hard drive is dead.

You can take it to a computer shop and have them replace your hard drive.

Response to MSI question


I would assume you have double checked all the connections to the motherboard from the power supply, and all other wire connections as well.

How many watts is the power supply? Perhaps there is too much for it to handle?

Try connecting only the HDD and the motherboard/cpu/fan and graphics card and see if it boots up, If it does, your PSU is being overworked.

I will continue to think up some more things...
