    I have exactly the same problem! I did get two flash back tries that I can see the setup. Once I even got into it! But it soon goes halt afterward. I've tried swapping in and out stuff and only had floppy left in. Still nothing. Since it didn't even pass the POST, the OS (XP) shouldn't matter. Any suggestion?

    Excact same probs: Removed everything one by one. And all I can guess it has something to do with dimm slot 2.

    memtest86+ 2.10 passes both memorys in slot one. But with two mems in it can be played hours of game or with out prroblems and total reboot in just web browsing. Or not even entering to bios. the stupid shutle logo prevents me to see what is in happening in "long boot" option. I can see some white dots jumping lower part of the screen but no idea what happens.

    Do you hear any beeps when you turn it on?

    Could be a bad ram chip. My customers have had similar problems and the solution was to replace the ram.

    what operating system are u using? and did you recently install any new software or updates. Is there anything that appears on the screen?

Update from my immediate post today: I've looked at other post that is suggesting memory or battery problem. To my surprise, after removing one memory from bank2 of DIMM, the PC came back to life! Whenever the second bank has either memory stick in it, it will stuck. So I ends up with half the memory, but get my system back. Not sure how long this will last though.

I Had similar history as the initial post: runs OK, and started random shut down 2 days before final stall. I am putting back my HDD and system, should be working, for now at least.

I dropped the feed dogs and they won't come back up.

Ignore all the other comments, they are wrong.
The feed dogs are driven by the feed driver mechanism, turn the hand-wheel forward and the feed dogs will come up. (Providing you have the feed dog switch to the up position).

My Sony Vaio PCG-61611L won't power on, the battery is fully charged and AC adapter is working (green light goes on). Please help!

OverheatingWhen the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermaloverload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is theproblem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make surethe vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed airto do this.

My GE electric dreyer, DHDSR46EGWW, is making squeaking noise and a grinding noise. My husband took is apart last night and put back together. When he started it the noises came back and he said it...

It could be the rear bearing or if not it have your honey take it apart again and inspect the rear rollers, if they turn freely then inspect the front bearing assy it is on the the door and if it looks worn down then it is allowing excessive pressure on the rest of the unit .

Kitchen aid dry motor noise

Try taking it apart again and try to turn the motor by hand. It should spin freely. If it does you've probably got a bad motor. If it is stiff or doesn't turn at all, then you might have missed something putting it back together. I wouldn't think you can overtighten the blower, it is probably something else, and with it apart it should be easy to see.
