UMB upper limit segment address: DC00

Hi,

I have a x41-tablet thinkpad since a couple of years. One morning it does not boot up. It turns on and starts the initintialisation of the Phoenix BIOS:

I can see the Thinkpad icon and the massage comes up "To interrupt normal start up press the blue button".  But the computer doesnt comes up. If I press F1 the bios comes not up. I I press ESC I can see the Bios version and the memory  counting but then after some massages:

#UMB upper limit segment address: DC00

#Mouse initialisation.

again nothing happens.

There is no IBM Error code on the sceen.

I have removed the BIOS battery, the main battery and the power supply a couple of hours. no change.

I have no warentry and in wirst case I need a new Mainboard(how much would it cost?). Or could it be an option just cange the bios chip, or someting else?

 

Thanks.

Welcome to the forum!

 

That does sound like a motherrboard problem, and I doubt that you could get it fixed by replacing a single chip. 

 

New boards can be sourced online in U.S. for around $300, I'm certain that the prices are higher in Europe.

 

Good luck and let us know. 

Cheers,

George

Hi, thanks for your answer.

 

just because answer I was interested, how much a new mainboard would cost, I had made a call to the support. And suprise I have still warranty (3 years). So they will change the mainboard.

Problem solved for me...

 

Thanks, Jonas Bergel
