Could be the cooling fan has stopped working, or is running slow due to dust blocking the fan and vents on the case.

    Could be the heatsink that sits on the processor which has come loose and not making good contact. You would have to strip it down though to find out.

  • How to Set Dial Indiglo Watches

    • 1Pinch the winding knob on the right side of the watch between your thumb and forefinger.

    • 2 Pull the knob out from the watch slowly until it clicks into the first position.

    • 3Turn the knob to move the hour and minute hand to set the time. Move the knob clockwise to move the settings forward and counterclockwise to move them backwards.

    • 4 Pull the knob out further until it clicks into the second position. In the second position (the one furthest from the face), turn the knob to set the calendar, if your Indiglo has one. Turn the knob clockwise to move the settings forward and counterclockwise to move them backward. Push the knob back in to the watch face when you are done.
    How to Set Digital Indigo Watches

    • 1 Press the button on the lower right side of your Indiglo watch to unlock the mode function of the watch.

    • 2 Press the button on the lower left side to move through the modes. Each time you are in a mode, the digital display will flash. For example, when the time display begins to flash, you are in the correct mode to set the time.

    • 3 Change the time (or date) by pressing the button on the upper right side to advance the numbers or the button on the left side to move the numbers down. When you do this, you will be changing the first set of numbers (the hour or month, for instance); to change the minutes, press the button on the right side of the face until the second set of numbers is flashing and begin the process again.

    • 4 Press the button on the lower left side of the watch to save your settings. The button on the upper left side of the watch is not used in this process--it is the switch to turn on your Indiglo light.

    I was watching a video online when my laptop just shut down and turned off without warning. When I attempted to turn my laptop back on, it began making a high pitched noise! I turned off my laptop and...

    To avoid this when watching a movie or lots of video's prop up your laptop with pencil or something else small and slender under the back. Just so the laptop isn't flush with the table or desk. You want airflow under the laptop. It shut down because of overheating to protect itself. Watch videos/movies can be very cpu/video card intensive driving up the temperature.

    My pioneer avh p5700 won't display movies what should I do

    this is a security feature integrated in the player, when u are moving(handbrake is off) u shouldnt be able to watch movies, well unless u have the ability to drive SAFELY and watch a moie, witch i do doubt about. green wire should be connected to the hand brake sensor. or just make a small switch(not more than a couple of pounds or just brake any unusfull appliance that has an on/off switch and use it :-)) ( one end connect to the wire and on the other side to any metal part of the chassi - do NOT connect with positive!!) put it on a easy location and every time u start ur car have to turn the switch off and then back on this way the player thinks u are not moving and the hand brake is on.
