Pa2548 won't boot up (with beeps)

Postby teepean » Mon Jan 10, 2011 4:10 pm

Hello!

I have a Pa2548 with Phoenix bios which won't boot up. The beep code is BEEP (pause) BEEP-BEEP (total three beeps). I've tried resetting the machine (remove battery and power, press power button for 10 - 30 seconds) but without any luck. What might be the problem?

Hi,

did you try searching for the meaning of the code?
It may be the keyboard, you could try to reconnect it (or connect an external keyboard).

The Phoenix bios beeps seem to be in series of threes, at least on the guides I've found. The machine in question had coffee spilled on it about a year ago, so I'll try with an external one first. Thanks!

Didn't work with external usb keyboard and the machine doesn't have PS2 port. I tried cleaning the keyboard connector.

Here's a video showing what happens:

Hi there.

I have the very same problem with my Pa 2548.

Have you solved it?
Some forums say it is a graphic card problem :( What can I do if this is the problem?

I have no idea what was the cause and I sold the machine as spare parts.

Hi!

I have the same problem too with pa2548. :(
Sometimes it starts up, but about 1 time from 100 tryings.
I think the motherboard is the problem because sometimes
just 1 led working, but sometimes all of the leds are working.

If someone solved the problem or know solution please let me know.
It's really important for me because I can't work without this machine. :(
Thx.
Have a nice day. :wink:
