During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS you can load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults ,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart then
once you have your computer running try uninstalling a few unnecessary programs then click start run type cmd then type chkdsk/r/f this task will schedule when computer restarts which will scan for and attempt to fix any bad sectors and automatically fix any corrupt files on your hard drive do nothing while the chkdsk utility ani input may damage your computer then defragment your hard drive then you might

Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty test all leads that are attached from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) or just replace them there probably old and faulty
you can do any of these options at any time
hope this helps

Display screen flashes "CHK" repeatedly


Hello.

From FixYa Support: The "ERR" message reportedly means a memory error.

Please NOTE: This solution will wipe out the memory.

Press the STOP and DISP/MENU buttons at the same time for about 2 seconds, and then the display should show "FOR". It will supposedly erase the whole memory, but will at least make the device usable again.

Hope this helps.

Screen shows ERR. I changed batteries and tried


You're right..This happens often when one changes the battery.Here's what to do :
The ERR message can only be corrected by holding in the DISP/MENU and STOP buttons for two seconds, which results in ALL the material on the recorder being erased. It will say (FOR) for a few minutes while it is erasing everything, then will work again.

My Olympus VN-3100 voice recorder has suddenly stopped working! When I switch it on it flashes CHK for a couple of minutes then says ERR


I had the same problem with my Olympus VN-5000. I found a solution, which appears to reformat the memory (ERR means memory error). Try to press the STOP and DISP/MENU buttons at the same time for about 2 seconds, and then the display should show "FOR". It will supposedly erase the whole memory, but will at least make the device usable again! I hope this solution works for your model.

ERR


Solution is very simple - just press DISP/MENU and STOP simultaneously for 2-3 seconds. There will start the FOR blinking on the screen of recorder (ERR will disappear) and the red "eye" on the switchboard. Wait for few minutes and your recorder is back to work :)

Warnning: This means FULL restart and you will lose ALL your recorded data! But I did not find any other solutions...

"chk" error on screen olympus vn-4100 pc


I had a similar sounding problem my Olympus VN-5000. I would turn it on, it would show "CHK" for a few seconds, and then "ERR." This persisted despite fresh batteries. The "ERR" message reportedly means a memory error. I found a solution, which appears to reformat the memory. Try to press the STOP and DISP/MENU buttons at the same time for about 2 seconds, and then the display should show "FOR". It will supposedly erase the whole memory, but will at least make the device usable again! I hope this solution works for your model...

Olympus VN-3100PC Voice Recorder Problem


I fought with this machine for more than 9 months. And after playing with it today FINALLY got it working.

This is what I did:

Unscrew the faceplate. (Three screws. One is under the batteries).

Put the batteries back on.

Have the HOLD button on the normal position (down)

Press and hold the MENU/FOLDER button together with the STOP button

Press and hold the MENU/FOLDER button together with the DISPLAY button

You will see a GREEN light, then a RED light then a "FOR" message will appear

Press the DISPLAY button and after a few moments it will reset and ask you to enter the time.

GOOD LUCK. Let me know if it works for you.

HAVE A NICE DAY.
