Well..the updates might has confused the memory allocation settings, and the beeping is telling you that the memory is not happy. Try reseating memory, and swapping it's locations. Can't hurt.

I would replace parts. It still is cheaper than a new unit. So get the new control panel and do it yourself and save money. The average life of a dyer is dependant only on when the owner gives up. I just serviced on last week that was 25 years old.

Hello, When i start the computer its starts a


Oh geez, you have some work ahead of you.

I would somehow acquire another video card (ask a friend :)). Put that in and see if your computer boots up. If that still doesn't work its either the CPU, or the Motherboard.

I would take apart the heatsink, remove the CPU, reseat it and see if it works.

Let me know! ill help

How do I change the time on my TIMEX T307S clock?


Hello
To adjust time follow this.

Auto-Set Time and Date Settings

This model is equipped with the Auto-Set feature, meaning that the time and date have been programmed at the factory

and will already be set when you first plug the model in. Auto-Set will automatically adjust the time and date settings for

daylight-saving time and leap years. Auto-Set is programmed for Eastern Standard Time; if you do not live in this time zone,

you can easily switch the setting to one of six other time zones.

1. To change your time zone setting, press and hold the 8 Time Zone Button. The current Auto-Set Time Zone in the

lower-right-hand corner of the display will flash for approximately ten seconds, after which the display will revert to the

standard clock display.

2. While the Auto-Set Time Zone is flashing, press the 1 Reverse and 6 Forward Buttons to select your time zone.

The display will show each zone's current time setting. There are seven zones to choose from:

Auto-Set Time Zones

Z-01 Atlantic Standard Time

Z-02 Eastern Standard Time

Z-03 Central Standard Time

Z-04 Mountain Standard Time

Z-05 Pacific Standard Time

Z-06 Alaskan Standard Time

Z-07 Hawaiian Standard Time

3. Find your time zone, then press the 4 Enter Button or wait about ten seconds for the clock to beep twice and the

setting to lock into place.

Manual Time and Date Settings

1. To change your time setting, press and hold the J Time Set Button so that the clock display begins flashing.

2. While the display flashes, press the 1 Reverse and 6 Forward Buttons to set the time. Hold a button for a few

seconds to set the time rapidly. Be sure to set the correct AM/PM time, shown by the PM Indicator.

3. After setting the time, press the 4 Enter Button or wait about ten seconds for the clock to beep twice and the setting

to lock into place.

4. To change the calendar, press and hold the 9 Date/7-5-2 Button until the display shows the flashing year.

5. Press the 1 Reverse and 6 Forward Buttons to set the current year. When you have selected the year, press the

4 Enter Button, then use the 1 Reverse and 6 Forward Buttons to set the month/day.
6. After you have set the date, press the 4 Enter Button or wait for the display to beep twice and lock into place.

Bios problem


Sounds like the wrong BIOS programme has been installed. Not a lot can be done about that apart from removing the BIOS chip and reprogramming it with an EEprom Programmer. Purchase a new motherboard is the answer.

2 year old turned tv on/off several times - TV doesn't turn on


The main power supply is in the protect mode. Usually this is caused by the high voltage section, scan amplifiers, and or the main power supply failing. Many times, when there are failures in the scan amplifier output sections, the main power supply can also be damaged.

On rare occastions, the CRT electron-gun can have a short, and cause this type of failure condition.

An experienced TV tech should be able to service this for you.

Hi im Joan Hall.I have a suggestion.Please check your IDE Cables.When u reboot your computer it should say detecting IDE Cables.If it beeps that usally means that your computer has an error.See if its not the IDE Cables because they will cause your computer to beep and not boot up right.
