BIOS POST Test Card Combo
DUO Cards analyze the POST Beeps for the exact POST error
code and can tell you exactly why a computer is failing to boot!
Excellent value, universal Bios POST
set, comprising the PCI card and the Laptop card, between them they can analyze POST beep codes
and diagnose start up or boot
problems in just about any type of IBM PC/AT
compatible PC hardware.
DUO cards fit either
PCI or ISA Slots in desktop computers, or a Mini PCI slot or LPT printer port
on laptop and notebooks, to troubleshoot hardware boot problems.
Used in conjunction
with the comprehensive manual containing the BIOS manufacturer
POST fault codes, DUO cards can pinpoint the exact cause of the most obscure
problems in non-booting computer hardware..
When a pc fails to boot up the symptoms
are: repeated beeping with a blank screen or the pc will
appear completely dead. The cards are passive POST Diagnostic Code
Readers. Used with the technical manual and BIOS
manufacturers diagnostic codes, this product can help a you quickly and easily diagnose faults in ANY IBM or compatible PC
hardware failing to boot up.
EASY TO USE - There are NO jumpers or switches to set.
Simply plug the card into a free PCI or ISA slot on desktops or a Mini PCI slot or the LPT Printer
Port on laptops & notebooks, on the
non-booting PC and switch on power.
At power-on the PC's BIOS performs a Power On
Self-Test (POST) of all Motherboard components. For
every test the BIOS sends an identifier code (POST Code) to the
system speaker (these are the beep codes). The card intercepts these
signals, translates them into numbers and displays the code on the hexadecimal digital displays on the
card. If a test fails, the display
will halt at the failing test identifier code.
Universal designed to quickly and easily
troubleshoot dead Desktop, Laptop and Notebook PC's in a matter of minutes in 3 easy steps:
Insert the card into a spare PCI or
ISA slot on desktops, or Mini PCI or LPT Printer Port on laptops
Power the system
on. Watch the LEDs and digital display for failure symptoms.
After a few moments, will display one (or more) error codes
or an LED will not light up correctly
Simply look the code up in the comprehensive manual under the correct BIOS and
in a minute or two,
you'll know exactly why the computer isn't booting!
COMPATIBILITY - The POST diagnostic cards have
universal meaning they will work
with virtually all IBM/AT compatible computer hardware..
MANUAL - 's detailed and comprehensive manual covers POST
codes for all major BIOS manufacturers. Simply
reference the manual with the failure code and find the exact
cause of the boot problem and/or the component that failed.
to PCI bus, will work without input from PCI clock
POST80 code from 80 HEX
Design: is less bulky than most POST
LED'S - LED lights monitor power supply voltages, Reset, Oscillator, BIOS,
Clock, Run Status.
PCI FUNCTIONS - Initiator
Ready, Frame, Device Select etc.
PLUG n PLAY - DETECTS CARD LOCKUP'S - is the only
diagnostic card in its class to provide a true solution to ISA and PCI signal
problems, important because bus transactions can be locked
by faulty a faulty PnP 'handshake' signal, causing freezing in mid
a boot failure. monitors PnP transactions
flagging up handshake problems. Particularly useful when installing
add-on cards and adapters or troubleshooting PCs and
LED FAULT CODE DISPLAYS -
cards have multiple 4 digit
hexadecimal displays that read out Bios POST codes. One is mounted on each side of the cards
for easy viewing from either side and the Desktop version has a
3rd additional display for remote viewing. All segments light during Reset.
MULTIPLE FAULT DETECTION:
cards can identify multiple faults.
With you can 'cycle' the displays through
multiple fault codes.
