SOURCE: advent 9912 wont turn on

remove the ac adapter
take the battery out
be sure nothing is connected with your laptop
then press and hold the power button for 60 secs to drain static as it is the most probable reason laptops stops working.
then connect the ac adapter only and without the battery try powering on the system
if it powers on
you can again shut it down
insert the battery
it should surely power on

This is a NO POST scenario
How to troubleshoot No POST
1. Check wall socket whether power is working fine
2. Check PSU (Power Supply Unit) fan whether it is rotating or not.
3. Change power socket.
4. Change the the main power cable from the wall socket to the PSU.
5. Check whether the lights on the keyboard flash when you turn on the power.
6. Check the voltage selector swicth at the back of the PSU ( Ideally should be 115v for US region and 220v for Asia ).
7. Check all peripherals like keyboard, mouse, video cable whether they are connected properly or not.
8. Open Chassis >> Check RAM connected properly.
9. Remove add-on cards like graphic cards, modem card, PCMCIA card slots, LAN card etc.
10. Take out main power connector (grey-black) or brown, green cable from front board panel of cabinet from where you turn on the power for CPU. and also take it out from the motherboard,
11. Check I/O cable which comes from power button on cabinet whether it is firmly connected nor not.

FLASHING A BIOS:
A couple of items are really important if you decide to flash. First. Make sure the updated bios addresses the issue you are trying to solve. eg many motherboard makers update their bios's for many different reasons. A reason may simply be to get a certain big name brand of pc to work correctly with a new cd writer big brand pc is selling.
So you really have to read the docs so see if the upgrade addresses your specific niggle or concern. Secondly, try your motherboard maker first to see if they have the files you need. Bios's upgrades are best had, if available, from the company that made your motherboard or pc. In most cases these are free.
Thirdly, READ THE DOCS CAREFULLY AND FOLLOW THEM TO THE LETTER. Dont skip any steps, especially the backup option if available. Fourth, if the upgrade calls for a clean bootdisk, use one. The disk I made especially for bios flashing is the one you can download above. It's a DrDOS bootdisk with NO drivers loading up in config.sys or autoexec.bat which is very important. My bios flash bootdisk is recommended by the most popular motherboad makers.
If you dont have a 1.44 drive I also created a utility to use to flash from a CD which you can add the new bios and flash utility to and then burn it.
It should have room to add your new bios, the flash utility, and also have room for the backup. If not one can always use another disk for the info. Always use BRAND NEW MEDIA when dealing with flashes.
In order to locate the correct bios upgrade for your motherboard you need to know who made it AND you need to know the model number. If your PC was made locally perhaps you have the manual. If not, then you need to find out the maker and model. Or, and very common with major brands, your computer maker will/may have the updated bios's on their website.
I have one windows and three dos utils that find your motherboard maker and model number. One of them should work for you. The DOS utils are on my DOStools Page under Diagnostics, and are called CTbios, MBID, and HW iNFO. The windows utility is called BIOS Agent and is on my Utilities Page under Hardware .
Once you ID your motherboard and model go the the manufacturers website and see what they have available. Note that some upgrades will come with their own bootdisk/utility so you may not need the disk I made.
Again, note that even tho many people flash their bios regularly to get the latest features and never have a problem, I still recommend it as a last resort as a flash gone bad will make your pc unusable if the backup doesn't work. Look at it this way, suppose I have a used 80 gig drive I want to resuse and my old P400 cant even detect it so I have an unusable pc. This is the best, and most common reason to flash.
On the other hand, if you have a more modern pc that cant see lets say a 180 gig drive and but all else is working properly then you may want to consider a PCI hard drive controller card which has an onboard bios that will see your new large hard drive and also come with 2 more IDE channels you can use in addition to the 2 channels you already have. This is safer than flashing the bios.

Hello. Where is that ETACS box located under the dash on a 2001 hyundai santa fe? I have the fuse box panel off but cannot find the etacs box to sitch to off for remote programming.


I live in Australia so mine is a right-hand-drive Santa Fe 2001. I wonder if this is why so many people seem to have so much trouble locating this box. On a left-hand-drive the box may be more over the footwell instead of near the side wall. In my car it is actually behind the fuse box near the right-hand side-wall. The switch is actually not visible as it is located on the right hand side of the ETACS box (near the side-wall). I had to locate it by feel. Once thought I had located the switch I held my finger pressed up against it for a while, to litterally get an imprint of the switch. The position towards the driver appears to be the "off" position, and the position towards the front of the car the "set" position. I turned the ignition key on (2 clicks), flicked the switch to the "set" position, pressed the lock button (I watched the flash on the remote, but heard nothing from the car), turned the ignition key to "off" and pressed the remote lock button again, then reset the switch on the ETACS box back to it's original position. That's it. My remote is working now. Hope this helps someone else...

Hello Sir,

Make sure that the fuse or the relay of the supply unit is intact and in working condition. If not that there is some trouble in the power supply unit.

Security light will not work


You must have a three function wall switch. This means in addition to a button that opens and closes the door there are two other buttons on the same wall switch. One is marked LIGHT and the other is marked LOCK.

To have your lights come on automatically when you walk into an open garage you must START with the lights ON. To turn the feature on, turn the lights on manually with the wall switch, then press and hold the LIGHT button for about 10 seconds until the motor unit light bulbs flash. Now, if the light bulbs are on, manually turn them out and then walk out through the open door. The light bulbs should come on.

To disable this feature, start with the light bulbs OFF and everything else is the same.

Tried to use my powerprep pluss cuisinart food processor and nothing happens. The on button lights up but nothing happens when i press the pulse button.


Remove the work bowl from the base of the food processor, and separate the bowl, lid, and pusher sleeve.
Plug the base into the wall outlet, turn the food processor ON, and then use a pen to press in the dark grey or black button on top of the base of the food processor - if you hear some kind of noise, then your motor is still good.
Put the work bowl on first, with the handle facing the front of the food processor.
Put the lid on, with the lid lined up with the handle of the work bowl.
Put the pusher sleeve in the lid, with the metal piece facing the front of the processor.
Your processor should now turn on.

If it doesn't call Cuisinart and see if you are still in-warranty (3-year warranty).

Good luck!

No power to my ICN 520


Have you tried the reset hole? make sure there is nothing stuck in there that could be pressing on the button. When you press and hold the reset button the screen stays blank.

If you press the reset button does the unit turn on? Mine turns on when I press the reset button even after I turn the battery off then back on.

Hope this suggestion might help you restore functionality.
