I had this happen sometimes after a windows update/reboot.
If the computer is on, hold down the power button until it cuts off.
Unplug the power cord. Wait for a couple of minutes.
Plug the cord back in, and turn on system.

Why doesn't my fan rotate anymore?


definitely sounds mechanical. try prying open the motor area and see if anything happens when you turn it on. i'm guessing it might be a short somewhere that's making the other parts have to compensate

also check into servos, relays, and whatnot

Cooling fans on radiator will not come on. what can i do?


Hi kattrinahawk, If your cooling fans do not work, take a second to understand the system: 1)Fans will cycle on and off depending on engine temperature. 2)Fans will come on when Air Conditioning system is On. 3)Fans will come on if certain malfunctions in engine electrical systems. Fans are controlled via the ECM/PCM or sub computer. Fans usually have separate fuses and or relays/resistors. Ok so lets check a few things: 1)Check your engine coolant level, fan operation is depending on correct/full level 2)Turn your A/c on max settings and wait a few seconds see if fans cycle. 3)Check for obstructions or loose wiring around/on fans. 4)Inspect fuses per owners manual locations identification.

My daugher has a 2008 prius, had a flat tire and now has the spare tire on. What is the maximum distance and speed she should drive


I do not know the maximum distance, but there should be a wear indicator on the tire. Usually the max speed on doughnut tires is around 50 mph but the owners manual will clarify. Usually the spare will have a max speed posted on it somewhere with a sticker.
Please let me know if I can further assist you.

I have a Jazzy Select model. Fairly new. It


It could be that the acceleration is set to low. This setting adjusts the time it takes for the chair to reach maximum speed that you have selected on the joystick. With a low setting, it takes it a few seconds to get to maximum. Reprogramming the acceleration to a higher setting decreases the amount of time for the chair to hit max speed. You will need a PP1 handheld programmer from P&G drives technology to change the settings, or take it to a local DME specialist who will usually have a programmer to reset the joystick.

I cant get the fans to turn on!!!!!!!!!!!


Call up the 'Integration Menu" - the fans can be switched between 'auto' and 'full speed'.

To do this switch the display into standby. If the standby light flashes 4 times it is indicating a fault in the Thermal Sensor Assembly which will explain why your fans aren't working. With the display in standby press the menu button and within 3 seconds press the power button. The display will turn on with the integration menu. Select the option tab and scroll down until you see 'fan control' - press 'set' to toggle between 'auto' and 'max'. When you select 'max' the fans will run at full speed within a few seconds. The fans are a bit noisey at full speed so you may want to look into replacing the sensor eventually.

Computer goes on but does not boot


When you start up the PC, do you get any kind of beep sound? If not, I would reckon the RAM modules are faulty and would need to be replaced first. That is the usual cause for this kind of issue. Also when replacing the modules, make sure they are the type supported by your motherboard, ie DDR, DDR2, etc. You will have to consult your m/b manual for this..

If the problem is not with the RAM, ie you hear a beep, but nothing else, I would guess that the MBR of your operating system is dysfunctional, which would mean that you would have to reinstall the operating system.

Hope that helps...

Cheers!
