FS40 boot problem

I've had the system for three years with no problem and I haven't changed or added anything to the system in two years. Last week it shut down sudenly. After it shut down I could not get it to boot from the hard drive, disk or cd. I can get to the bios but after I exit it keeps cycling back to the screen that allows me to press F2 to enter setup but won't go any further. The power supply checks out ok. A local computer repair person tried to flash the bios with no luck. He said the problem was on the motherboard and tried to sell me another system. I'd rather get the FS40 working. Anyone got any sugestions on how to identify what has failed on the motherboard?

If he has flashed the bios, then you may not know yourself if he has corrupted the bios doing the flash or not. The usual symptom of a continual re boot is as simple as a cmos CR2032 disc shaped battery on the motherboard that need replacing, as that is why you need to keep reseting the date and time because it loses the memory. If this doesnt stop the process the problem is knowing if your repairer suceeded in flashing the bios or not; and rendered it useless, if it is useless and does not boot up windows then the motherboard will need replacing.

I wouldn,t say that your lower seal is bad. I will ask you if you've changed your oil, and maybe not tightened the plug. Now it is possible that you haven't changed your oil and for some reason your oil plug has loosened enough for your oil loss or completely unscrewed and fallen out. In either case tighen if there, or replace with new one if not there fill with oiland see if it's OK. GOOD LUCK.

I've been running mine for 2 years without checking anything other than the free chlorine level and it's always crystal clear without adding NO CHEMICALS. Make sure you have the correct salt level and start the unit. Take a water sample at the discharge after the chlorinating light comes on and check to see if it measures chlorine. Should be slightly yellow color. If so, your unit is producing free chlorine.
