Took my car to mechanic because car was knocking ang cv boot was ripped with no ball showing. He says its not a cv joint problem but that my ball joints need replacing. Is this possible even though I...


hi there,
yes it is possible that the ball joint could be making that noise,a cv joint although does not always make a noise just becuse the boot is split.
A cv joint generaly makes a clicking sound on turns,i would maybe get a second opinion if that would make you happy.
I hope that sheds some light on the subject for you.

Boot Problems... Complicated...


The IBM Netfinity 5600 is a complicated beast for sure. You really need to get a copy of the Netfinity Manual from IBM (not on the web site fyi.). It's as big as the machine unfortunately. In section 3, p.124 it lists 3-3-3 beep code as "No memory has been detected in the system" solution is "Reseat mem modules or install mem modules. If prob persists get machine serviced." On the previous page, 3 short beeps (only) on POST indicate "system mem error. combo only occurs when video bios cannot display error msg. replace the failing mem module." You might also want to check the light-path diagnostics inside the machine. A little light will be illuminated right beside the bad DIMM.
