Archerr, what did u try?, I don't know, I can't help u! as per 3.5 floppy, check how u connected the ribbon cable.Pin#1 on mother board to red or colored wire on ribbon(pin#1) the pin#1 [red or colored] that goes to the floppy is usually connected FACING towards the power connector [usually 4 pins in line, almost always on the left side of floppy. the connection to h/d(hard drive)on the board looks the same.Usually h/d#1 & h/d#2 are side by side and the floppy connector usually is a distance away by itself.
Get a bootable 3.5"[with ANY operating system] and boot up with the floppy, you'll will know when it works.Then get back with" Tried that still nothing..."

Can a failed bios update be recovered?


Do you have a floppy drive in this PC? From what I've found you you *may* be able to fix it, but it will more than likely require a floppy drive and a disk. Also, you would need another computer to be able to get the files prepared for the floppy disk, and that computer also would need a floppy drive.

In a nutshell, you would use the 2nd PC to make yourself a boot disk, then put the boot disk in the broke PC and turn it on. In theory, if all goes will, it will read the disk and restore the BIOS.
But you may have to change some files on the disk so it will boot to the BIOS recovery program.

If you do have a floppy drive in the dead PC, turn it on and see if the floppy drive light comes on at all. If it does, then the computer is trying to access the floppy drive, which may allow it to read a disk. You will stand a better chance of getting any recovery to work.

Bose 321 II dvd drawer won't open, fixes here & elsewhere not working. I put in a recorded dvd. It tried to read it, & never gave me the not supported msg as I started trying to eject it...


Hi Donna,

Please do be frustated.

Your lovely Bose has problem with its mechanism that cause load / unload totally out of order. If you hear some noise while you turn on the bose or when you hit some buttons, it is telling us the motor still work. Now we need to check the broken gears ( or other mechanism linkage).
If you able assemble this Bose, go ahead to find and fix it mehanism ( you may need some parts replacement.

Note : Be carefully with its laser lens while power on ( avoid direct contact to your eyes).

Best luck,

Jay

My Fujitsu AMILO M3438G will not startup. I,ve changed the cmos battery but it still says that the bios is wrong. I've tried pressing the F2 key but then the monitor displays a "wait" page...


The lines on the screen point to a failing graphics chip, faulty VGA lead or more probably, the screen itself beginning to fail.
The bios problem is most likely due to a damaged bios chip, this is usually caused by attempting to upgrade the bios by flashing and the flash process going wrong, resulting in a series of instructions on the bios chip being incorrect. Changing the Cmos battery will have no effect.

You need to reflash the bios with a stable version, this can be done via floppy drive or USB stick, but you will need to obtain a usb floppy drive (I THINK the bios on the laptop supports this). On the floppy drive, you will need to install a windows 98 type boot disc
http://www.bootdisk.com/

and obtain the bios and flash file for this laptop
http://ts.fujitsu.com/support/downloads.html ( dos version)

On another computer, copy both to separate floppies, boot to the floppy drive, let it load the OS then swap floppies and load the bios flash from floppy

I believe that you can also get the ISO (cd image) which, as long as the laptop can read the cd drive, will be a better option.

If you cannot even get the bios to recognise the floppy or cd, then the problem will need a replacement bios chip installing to sort it out

The keypad 3, 6 and 9 of my sonyericcson k750i are not functioning....


If you feel confident and competent enough, try taking your phone apart and giving the internals a good clean, take the white keypad PCB out and clean both it's contacts and the contacts on the phone's mainboard, and clear out any dust. Put the phone back together and see if that's solved the problem. It could also simply be that the keypad connector has worked loose




Key Pressed : Key presses phone appears to see
:
3 : 3 then left soft key
6 : 6 then right soft key
9 : 9 then back
c : c then #
left soft key : 3 then left soft key
right soft key : 6 then right soft key

(All the other keys worked correctly)

As I didn’t know what was causing this I attempted to move all data stored on the phone to the memorystick so I could master reset and possibly reflash, although after this I returned to the homescreen to find all keys had started functioning correctly again,
