T6528 beeps twice wont boot

Suggest you remove the Ram Memory modules, ('Stick'), and clean the gold plated contact pins. Then reinstall.

The beeps you hear are BIOS Beep Codes. The computer's way of telling you something is wrong, and an area to look into for it.
2 short beeps indicate a memory problem.

The eMachines T6528 uses an MSI MS-7207 motherboard.
(Micro Star International)
Otherwise known as the MSI K8NGM2-FID /IL / L,

Uses DDR Sdram ram memory.

(Either 266MegaHertz, 333MHz, or 400MHz. Which is
PC-2100, PC-2700, and PC3200; respectively)

Handle the Ram Memory by the BODY. The Body is everywhere on the ram memory module, Except the gold plated contact pins at the Bottom.
The Body is coated with a see-through protective plastic.

Use a pencil eraser to clean the gold plated contact pins.

If you are using an eraser on the end of a pencil, and not a solid eraser; refrain from letting the metal band touch, the gold plated contact pins.

Rub across all contact pins, (BOTH sides), and up, and down on them. You don't have to use too much pressure.
Once finished use air to remove the eraser dust.

You can use a can of compressed air for computers, if available; or air pressure from your mouth will be sufficient.
(Humans can deliver up to 20 pounds of air pressure)


BEFORE you reach inside your computer, FOLLOW Anti-Static Precautions.

Your body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit), the delicate hardware components inside a computer.
Relieve your body of Static.

Computer ON a table, computer unplugged from power, computer case open;
TOUCH an unpainted surface, of the metal frame of the open computer case.
This action will relieve your body of Static.

IF you leave your computer in the middle of working on it, be SURE to Touch the metal frame again upon your return.

Use a can, or two of compressed air for computers. You may wish to wear a dust mask also.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

How do i install mud flaps 12wx22h inches on my 2011 ram 1500 thanks in advance

That depends on the design of the mud flaps. Typically they have holes in the top for sheet metal screws. Look for any existing sheet metal screws in the fender wheel behind the wheel that match with the holes in the flaps - you can just remove those, put the mud flap up and put the screw back in if it is long enough (if the mud flap doesn't have a metal strip across the mounting edge, you'll need a large washer under the screw head to distribute stress across the material or it will crack).
If you don't have matching holes, you'll have to drill them. If you are going into steel, use a bit sized for the shank of the sheet metal screw, or just drill the screw in directly. After you get the screw in, take it out and fill the hole with rust-protecting sealant, then put the screw back in. If your mounting hole is on fiberglass or plastic, use a nut and bolt with fender washers under both the screw head and the nut. I recommend either stainless steel or cadmium plated hardware for corrosion protection; this is a harsh environment.
If you don't have a straight surface for mounting the mud flap, you may have to bend a heavy galvanized steel strap with holes in it (perhaps a pipe hanger) to make a mounting bracket. Attach one end to the vehicle as described in the previous paragraph, and attach the mud flap to it.
I would expect a new mud flap set would include the necessary hardware to adapt it to different vehicles. If you've already purchased a new set without any of this material, you can look at some of the other sets on the market for ideas on mounting brackets. The exact method you use is not critical, so long as it holds the flap without breaking anything (consider the stresses from flapping back and forth and try to envision where the greatest stresses and material fatigue would be), and is reasonably protected from corrosion.

Ok so ive changed the oil im about to get inside and hopefully unstick the clutches any advice on were to get a diagram or any advice ive never done this so im trying to be very carefull also will deep...

Got to Click OEM parts and look up your bike. They've got great exploded views of every part of the bike. I wouldn't use the penetrating oil. Now, what you might can do is put the transmission in top gear, hold the clutch lever in, and rock the bike back and forth. Sometimes that will break the clutch loose but it can also tear the friction material off the metal backing disc. The best thing is take the clutch apart.

When you get the clutch plates out, wash them in gasoline. Do not smoke while doing this and be very careful of static electricity. Gasoline is the only thing I've found that would break the glaze otherwise I'd say use something else, Just be careful when using it. Once you washed all the plates off, lay a piece of medium grit emory cloth on a flat surface. Lay the friction plates on the emory cloth and lightly sand them using a figure "8" pattern. Just lightly. Put the clutch back together by installing a friction disc, a metal disc, a friction disc, and so on.
You'll do fine. Just remember, don't force anything. If something is supposed to come off but doesn't seem to want to, look for another bolt that you may have overlooked.

Good Luck

Reglue the rear view mirror. How do I remove the metal disc to glue on the window? Every other one I've done their was a set screw. When you remove the screw the small metal seat slides out. This one is...

They changed it. You have to slide the mounting bracket out the bottom of the mirror case.It's a tight fit but the mirror assembly will slide off, toward the roof. Once you have it off you will see a small slot on the bottom of the mounting bracket. Slide a small screwdriver in the slot and push toward the mounting plate (windshield). The plate that goes on the windshield should pop off. Hope this helps.

Cannot install RAM in OKI 5300 Laser printer

Open top lid.
On right hand side you'll see a thumb screw.
Undo this and carefully remove or place ajar the side cover.
The top slot should be free if you have say 64MB RAM in the machine already.

I never got the cover completely off but had to slide it upwards and pull it out slightly from the back - this gave enough room to isntall the DIMM without any extra dismantling - it seems the front plate with LCD screen & buttons hinders total panel removal.
