Fast & Furious Drift multiple problems
« on: June 10, 2021, 09:17:42 PM »
I have a buddy with a dedicated HUO F&F Drift that constantly reboots and has no picture.  The Chassis has a green light I know it is getting power and the cpu is sending a signal (hooked it up to a monitor), possible neck glow.

 I think he was running .43 Firmware I didn't see Dell anywhere so my guess is it's the Microtel CPU and it has the serial/IO port dongle. In the CMOS I think all of the Voltages were close to where they should be one was a little low.


Any thoughts?

Was also wondering if there was a way to upgrade his software in this day and age?

Thanks in advance

your brother is more famous. :)

post voltages, but if you have +12 and +5, you should be good enough to boot. the chassis green light doesn't help.

no picture, lets get a good boot first, even on an external LCD.

ignore cmos voltages, take them at the board, or at least, at the power supply.

you may need a new flash drive (hard drive update), but not enough info given yet. welcome to the village.

Thanks, I will get better info next time I'm looking at it.
At least I have a starting point now.

The game actually does boot, it calibrates the wheel and hangs at the "freeplay"  "press start" screen.  Then reboots.
If you quickly press start it will let you select options and then reboots around race start.

You had one good song in 93 on Swing Batta Swing album! :D

We worked through some stuff via PM over on KLOV and it looks like a software reload might be the next step. I'd replace the HD with an SSD since they're so cheap and it's only a couple of settings to verify.

I've got software for the game if you want to try a reload.

Sounds like a good idea.  I'm not sure when I will be back over there but I will definitely keep that in mind and appreciate the offer! I would be willing to bet the computer is going to need maintenance or possibly replaced.
Thanks again

We've got you covered on both accounts. I think I might have the right Dell around here already setup for that series.

Thanks for all the suggestions and especially thanks to WhiskeyTangoFoxtrot for holding my hand through several back and forths.  He helped me out immensely and had no motivation to do so other than being a good guy and supporting the community.
Mad props and rep to him!!!

Ended up being a bad video card.  Got it up and running again with upgraded software and i'm going try to build out an Optiplex to be ready for the next Microtel breakdown.

Still have a dead monitor to deal with if anyone knows of CRT service in greater Orlando area?

 :D :D :D
