If the error still remains:
External CD-ROM/DVD-ROM Drive Check
Do the following to isolate the problem to a controller, drive, or CD-ROM/DVD-ROM. Make sure that the CDROM does not have any label attached to it. The label can cause damage to the drive or can cause the drive to fail. Do the following to select the test device: 1. Insert an audio CD into the CD/DVD drive. If the CD/DVD drive can read the data from the audio CD. The drive does not have problem, then go to next step. If the CD/DVD LED on the front panel does not emit light as it read the data from the audio CD, then go to next step. However, if the CD/DVD drive can not read data from the audio CD, you may need to clean the CD/DVD drive with a CD/DVD drive cleaning disk. Make sure that the appropriate driver has been installed on the computer for the CD/DVD drive. Boot from the diagnostics diskette and start the diagnostics program See if CD-ROM Test is passed when the program runs to CD-ROM/DVD-ROM Test. Follow the instructions in the message window. Reconnect the CD-ROM/DVD-ROM module. Replace the CD-ROM/DVD-ROM module. Replace the main board.
2. 3. 4. 5. 1. 2. 3.
If an error occurs, reconnect the connector on the main board. If the error still remains:
Keyboard or Auxiliary Input Device Check
Remove the external keyboard if the internal keyboard is to be tested. If the internal keyboard does not work or an unexpected character appears, make sure that the flexible cable extending from the keyboard is correctly seated in the connector on the main board. If the keyboard cable connection is correct, run the Keyboard Test. If the tests detect a keyboard problem, do the following one at a time to correct the problem. Do not replace a non-defective FRU: 1. 2. 3. Reconnect the keyboard cables. Replace the keyboard. Replace the main board.
The following auxiliary input devices are supported by this computer: Embedded Numeric Keypad External keyboard If any of these devices do not work, reconnect the cable connector and repeat the failing operation.
Memory errors might stop system operations, show error messages on the screen, or hang the system. Currently, we do not provide memory test program. However, if you need to check memory but have no testing program or diagonositc utility at hand, please go to http://www.passmark.com to download the shareware BurnIn Test V.3.0. You may test the memory with this program under Window XP environment. NOTE: Make sure that the DIMM is fully installed into the connector. A loose connection can cause an error.
Power System Check
To verify the symptom of the problem, power on the computer using each of the following power sources: 1. 2. 3. Remove the battery pack. Connect the power adapter and check that power is supplied. Disconnect the power adapter and install the charged battery pack; then check that power is supplied by the battery pack. Check the Power Adapter Check the Battery Pack
If you suspect a power problem, see the appropriate power supply check in the following list:
Check the Power Adapter
Unplug the power adapter cable from the computer and measure the output voltage at the plug of the power adapter cable. See the following figure
Pin 1: 19V Pin 2: 0V, Ground
If the voltage is not correct, replace the power adapter. If the voltage is within the range, do the following: Replace the main board. If the problem is not corrected, see Undetermined Problems.
If the voltage is not correct, go to the next step. NOTE: An audible noise from the power adapter does not always indicate a defect. 3. 4. If the DC-IN indicator does not light up, check the power cord of the power adapter for correct continuity and installation. If the operational charge does not work, see Check the Power Adapter.
Check the Battery Pack
To check the battery pack, do the following: From Software: 1. 2. 3. 4. 1. 2. 3. 4. Check out the Power Options in control Panel In Power Meter, confirm that if the parameters shown in the screen for Current Power Source and Total Battery Power Remaining are correct. Repeat the steps 1 and 2, for both battery and adapter. This helps you identify first the problem is on recharging or discharging. Power off the computer. Remove the battery pack and measure the voltage between battery terminals 1(+) and 6(ground). If the voltage is still less than 7.5 Vdc after recharging, replace the battery. If the voltage is within the normal range, run the diagnostic program.
To check the battery charge operation, use a discharged battery pack or a battery pack that has less than 50% of the total power remaining when installed in the computer. If the battery status indicator does not light up, remove the battery pack and let it return to room temperature. Re-install the battery pack. If the charge indicator still does not emit, replace the battery pack. If the charge indicator still does not light up, replace the DC/DC charger board.
If the touchpad doesnt work, do the following actions one at a time to correct the problem. Do not replace a non-defective FRU: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. After rebooting, run Touch pad/PS2 Mode Driver. Run utility with the PS/2 mouse function and check if the mouse is working. If the PS/2 mouse does not work, then check if the main board to switch board FPC is connected well. If the main board to switch board FPC is connected well, then check if the touch pad FPC connects to the main board properly. If there is still an error after you have connected the touch pad FPC to the main board properly, then replace the touch pad or touch pad FPC. The touch pad or touch pad FPC may be damaged. Replace switch board. If the touch pad still does not work, then replace the FPC on Track Pad PCB.
After you use the touchpad, the pointer drifts on the screen for a short time. This self-acting pointer movement can occur when a slight, steady pressure is applied to the touchpad pointer. This symptom is not a hardware problem. No service actions are necessary if the pointer movement stops in a short period of time.
