Play system for 30-45 minutes and turns off randomly

This may be a problem with overheating. When the system overheats, it shuts off automatically in order to prevent hardware damage. When your system crashes, try feeling it to see if it is warm or very hot. If this is the case, you may want to move it to a more open area or try putting a fan onto it to reduce the heat. If it doesn't feel hot, then it may be a problem with your fan. If you do not hear a fan running or can't feel the air while playing the game, your internal fan may be busted. I suggest going to a repair store (such as Best Buy) and checking out the issue if it does turn out to be an internal issue.

Dvd driver does not play or burn blank dvds compaq r4000 but it will play dvds & cd its got dvdrw/r rw dvd+r dl n the driver

Try another DVD-RW drive because it sounds like the laser is going bad. Burning requires alot of power from the laser. Playing DVD or playing cd's doesn't require much so thats why it would play those.

Fan clutch pulley is making alot of noise, I was able to move the fan and it did give to a wiggle back and forth, it makes noises when the car is on, I am at a lost : any advice, comments, or answers will...

Problem could be either the fan clutch or the water pump, neither part should have any play in it. If the noise is like a jet engine, it is likely the fan clutch.

When i play crysis 2 on my ps3 it goes well, but when i try to play la noire it shuts off and blinks red. whats the problem?

LA Noire has been causing PS3s to overheat. Make sure the PS3 is up to date, then maybe try putting in spot where it can get more air.

The fan pulley is loose in my 2005 Trailblazer.

this is hard to say, not knowing whats wrong, it may be a bad waterpump or bad fan clutch,the fan clutch is the most common problem on these type of trucks,but could be the pump,to drive 25 miles i dont know,tell you what, open the hood with the engine off, grab the fan and try to spin it,if it binds up then its okay to drive, but if you grab it and move it back and fourth and theres alot of play then its a gamble but a would think it would be okay just keep an eye on the temp gauge, if it starts to overheat then shut it down and tow it the rest of the way,hope this helps,

Compaq Evo N610C will not play DVDs

I hate to ask silly questions but are you sure you have a DVD drive installed? This model cames with 4 options for optical drives and 2 of the options did not support DVDs.
Look on the door of the drive an make sure it imprinted with DVD somewhere.

Crackling from surrond sound

I have a SONY home theater4.gif system, HT-C800DP, there is a crackling sound when playing DVDs - it is almost as if the unit overheats. Is there any solution to this? Sometimes I cannot even finish a DVD as the noise gets very loud.
