SOURCE: MSI P6NGM won't BOOT

You should only hear 1 beep. That 1 beep is power on self test, known as P.O.S.T.
That loud flat line sound (And I'm pretty sure about this), was you're CPU. Just because you ran & passed the stressed test is nothing compared to running the system under load? That's why when you put in you other memory nothing changed. If you hadn’t mentioned you clocked up the FSB I would have come to the same conclusion hearing the loud flat line statement.
Can you test the CPU in another board? That is about the only way to be sure it's not the CPU. Memory does not make that kind of sound. Memory makes short & long beeps.
You can try clearing the cmos/bios by going to pg. 2-18 in you're user manual. This will reset the bios back to default settings & cross you're fingers!

If I can be of more service, just post back & let me know how thing go.

Good Luck!

I don't see how removing the battery would help but tried for the same problem and it did in fact do nothing.
The fan races but the system never makes it to the Bios and never displays anything on the monitor. I suspect a chip is fried on the MoBo.

Maxum52, please post the solution if you found one.

SOURCE: Gateway GT5228 booting problem

"Also after I try to turn it on after a couple of unsuccessful tries, it actually boots and the machine works fine". This maybe cause by the hardware problem. And it usually caused by the motherboard. Changing the motherboard unit may solve the problem. But make sure you've already done the basic test on all of your hardware before changing it with a new one.

hi kathy,

there are a few things you can try, reseting the cmos, with the jumper usually located near the battery. if you cant find that, try removing the battery for 30 mins and then popping it back in. if no luck from there, you could try another cpu, if that dont work then it may just be the mobo! good luck!

hope it helps!

LFFU14F5HWL how do I know if the control panel is bad I hear a beep and a small red light but will not turn omn


Hello Dan, I am happy to assist you!

Did your refrigerator previously experience a power loss? If the temperature of food rises to an unsafe level, the buzzer will sound and the red light, if equipped, will also glow. First, deactivate the alarm to your appliance by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker. Wait approximately ten minutes and then turn on your appliance. After deactivating the alarm and your refrigerator has run approximately four hours, the red light/alarm should go off on its own. If the red light/alarm continues to stay on, your freezer may possibly have a communication problem with the control board, temperature control or a wiring harness. If this is the case, I would recommend connecting with an experienced technician to determine the underlying cause.

Precision T7400 power supply sounding an alarm


Did you open the case on your computer? It may have an open case alarm which is a small switch typically located near the edge of the cover you removed. Make sure the case cover is completely installed, then see if the alarm goes off.

Since yesterday, my xps m 1330 is not working properly....i press the power button, it starts, it gets tothe loading of the OS(vista, by the way), then, suddenly it turns black, even the light shuts down,...


it sounds like a clash between drivers. If what you describe is accurate, than there may be a problem with the driver of the screen. It can be caused by other drivers as well. However, what you described sounds like the display driver.

Did you install anything during the last days? maybe even the OS update can cause this. Try to boot to safe-mode, in most computers you can boot using the F8 or F12, depends on the manufacturer (I think Dell's F8, not sure). If the OS is uploading as usual (it won't look like the normal OS, but it's okay, don't worry) then you should check the drivers (right click on "My Computer" should get you there).

Please inform me of any developments or questions you may have

Ford transit 1998 turbo diesel red light


this sound like you fuel injector pump stop solenoid is faulty it has an elec wire attached to it that with ign turned on it opens (clicks ) then clicks off/closes the fuel supply to the pump so engine stops ok? however the seal on the valve may have parted from the operating piston valve on solenoid and although it is free to allow fuel enough for start and running will also restrict fuel flow for more revs resulting in power loss as you mention ? also when ign is turned off the valve will operate but seal being not attached to piston ? fuel can still flow/seep thro to f i p and allow engine to continue to run ? hope you understand ?? this solenoid valve is a screw in type normally on top of f i p with a single wire to energize it looks like a larger type of temp sender unit ?

First take off my hard drive on the 360. Then plug it to the tv not with HDTV (use the red, yellow and white make sure it is on tv not HDTV) because it will not work for HDTV setting . then plugit into the wall with the 360 laying down not up and down and turned it on. (no picture but sound) with the 360 on take 1 towel fold it long ways and wraped it around 360 from back to front (make sure you cover the fans in the back to make it over heat.) leave your 360 on until it red rings (you can hear the 360 quit down. it takes about 15-30 mins depending on how fast it over heats. once this happens unwrap the 360 and turn it off wait 5 secs and power it back on and there you go you should have picture and sound again. if you still have problem you can now can send it to get repaired since there is a 3 year warrenty for red ringed 360's.

Dell XPS M140 laptop shuts off after powering on


Most laptops that I have worked on that power off that quickly turned out to be an overheating problem. Is the cooling fan running for the brief period that you can hear the hard drive before it powers off ? If the fan is running another potential resolution might be to remove the processor and apply new thermal paste.

Philips whirlpool AFG 027 freezer


The orange button is the "turbo boost" - for reduzing the temperature the fast way. Mostly used when first time use or you put in a lot of unfrozen things at once. When reaching optimal temperture it goes off automatically. The red one is the alert button. Not sure about the green one. Under normal conditions none of the lights is on.
