Question about Computers & Internet
My siemens dryer model#wtxd8300us serial#85409008291600889 i am having a problem.when i start aload and put the switch on extra dry/very dry etc. it works out the cycle but most time the clothes are not dry and i have to split the load. i have great difficulty starting again. i have to wait until it cools down or keep my fingers on the star button or play around with the select button then it might start. i am told this could be the mother board . is this true? if yes , what is the cost of a mother board? where can i purchase this?
Yes, it is true. A Siemens dealer will have one and the price will depend on where you buy it from.

SOURCE: CPU does not start
Hi, have you tried removing all the cards (video, lan etc) and all power connectors to drives? Run only your mb. If problem persists then it is possible that there is a short in the mb since the psu auto protects and shutoff. You can also try removing the retaining screws of the mb and try running it completely off the back panel. Care should be taken to ensure that the back of the mb does not touch any metal part of the casing. You can try sliding in between a plastic folder or something. If psu still shuts off, then you it is most likely the mb is fried. Please let me know if this works out for you. Regards

SOURCE: MoBo Replacement
did you go into the new bios and check to make sure you have the hard drive setting on auto, then check your boot order that the drive is first to boot., if that doesnt work create a floppy boot disk (google it) and see if you see the hard drive when you do that.

SOURCE: x3500 could not start (power on)
Suggest you change the power supply unit. 'Sounds' like a faulty power supply.
Suggest Electrolytic Capacitors have gone bad, in the power supply unit.
Check the link below, to see what Electrolytic Capacitors look like, and what they look like when they have failed. These capacitors don't Always show the visual signs when they fail, but most of the time they do.
I do not suggest you open the power supply unit chassis to observe closer though, as the capacitors can hold a charge for a L-O-N-G time. Sometimes weeks, or months. (Sometimes up to a year)
These capacitors are designed to slowly build a charge, then release it all at once. Should your fingers contact the terminals, of any of the larger capacitors, they could discharge their charge to You!
These could result in a bad shock or worse. (Even if your fingers contact a circuit that the capacitors are in, if your fingers complete the circuit, you'll be the recipient of the released charge)
Power supply unit unplugged from power, you can take a flashlight, and look through the ventilation holes, or slots. See if you do observe any bulging, or leaking capacitors. When they leak, there is a yellowish, or brownish ooze that comes out. It may come out of the top, or bottom of the capacitor.
At the top of the capacitor is an X, or this -> lK. It this is split open, you have a bad capacitor.
