One bad/faulty lead can cause a computer with lots of problems
replace all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA and the ones that attach from your motherboard to hard drive
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they are probably old and faulty ?
hope this helps

Washer will not spin r drain model whirlpool la7680xmwo


Sounds most likely a broken/defective lid switch. The lid switch on a top-load washer is a safety switch that detects whether the top-load washer lid is closed. The lid must be closed when the basket spins; some top-load models require that the washer lid be closed before the washer drive motor runs (thus no draining). If the lid switch isn't properly detecting whether the lid is closed replace the switch.

Spin not working on final cycle


drainage blocked {water is detected as taking too long to drain so motor wont spin}
or brushes on the drive motor are worn {will adgitate but not spin as error is detected or just not a good contact}
they are easily replaced out for new ones

The PC will not detect a drive that is not spinning. Make sure the power plug is seated properly.

Whirlpool washer dryer not spinning one item


In fact there are sensors that can detect higher vibration and there by control the speed. It must be seen if this is available on your model. Please check the capacitor to the motor, couple a similar one and see if the speed improves. Also check for free movement with your hand , if not you need to reset the drive assembly.
finally check on the motor, check the drive.

Hard disk not detected


Check to see if hard drive is fully plugged in/reseat cables/harddrive. see if this fixes the problem
if not listen to see if the drive spins up, if it fails to spin up then the hard drive is bad
if hard drive spins up but clicks at regular intervals, it is bad
Try a different drive cable
Try to replace with a known good hard drive, if it still is not detected check the bios to see if the drive controller is enabled.

If the controller is enabled and cannot detect a hard drive the controller may have failed.

Boot device not found Please instal l an operating sistem on your hard disk. Hard Disk - (3FO) F2 Sistem Diagnostics Foe more information, please visit: www.hp.com/go/techcenter/startup


please go to the bios setup by pressing F2. then check your sata hardisk if detected. if not, remove the sata hardisk and use it as external by using external sata case adapter. then plug to the other pc and check if spinning or detected by another pc. once not detected or spinning change your sata hardisk. but if detected, there is a problem on your dv6000Z notebook.

I have a KENMORE WASHER MODEL 11020894990.The slow spin comes on and works fine but when it stops to begin the faster spin it makes a klunk klunk noise and will not spin.


Well the klunk-klunk is the Break grabbing, to stop it, as it is detecting, what it thinks, is some sort of Unbalance or Overload, or detecting a motor fault, etc, real or not, and is shutting itself down because of this.
