Question about R.A.M. Computers IX PACIUP4240 15'' LCD TV / DVD / PC CIU Combo (2.4 GHz and 256MB RAM ) (PACIUP4240L) PC Desktop
I was given a PACCO Group IX PACIUP4240-L 15'' LCD computer that was escribed as "inoperative". Came with XP Home, 256 MB DDR memory and 80GB HD and zero documentation. Upon switching on the first couple of times I would get the black and white screen saying Windows did not start successfully last time, what did I want to do? I tried "normal start", "safe mode", "last known good configuration". None of these would produce a boot. Then, and ever sense all I get is a brief error message stating "CABLE NO INSERT" in a blue box center screen, then blackness. No beeps, no other sounds (such as the 3 1/2" drive cycling as it did initially.)Thinking it might be cable connection problem from long-time disuse, I opened the case, and removed/burnished all visible cable/plug sets. While at it I added 256 MB memory and replaced the broken CPU socket plastic base that mates with the heat sink down pressure spring. Upon restart I still get only the CABLE NO INSERT message, and no "power on" LED (to left of power button) or HD activity LED (to right of power button) although both did light during the first few boot attempts. I realize this beast is really only good for a doorstop but I have a menial task I would like to use a dedicated computer for and the form factor is ideal for it. Suggestions? TIA
The error message "CABLE NO INSERT" refers to the lack of video signal to the LCD. To fix it you have to use a short VGA cable that connects VGA output of motherboard to VGA input of LCD. Only then you are going to see video output on LCD screen. Your other option is to connect external monitor to VGA output on motherboard. Either way you are going to see motherboard's video.

Just open your system and see the CMOS clear jumper just beside the HDD port there should be three pin just change the jumper If jumper is seted into 1-2 then you put it 2-3 now system start by default It will go into CMOS then go to advance setup set the boot prority as first boot device HDD0 and pree F10 to save it then see & post again
