When hot my clio cuts out and sometimes after 5 or 10 minutes it start again for a while then cut out again


The computer is doing this to protect the processor and RAM. depending on how long the computer will run for after it has cut out you may need to replace the Processor and RAM. If the computer will run for 2 days without a problem after cutting out than you simply need to shut the computer down more often after you are finished with it.

If the computer will run for 4 hours without a problem after cutting out, than it is the graphics card that is causing the problem, 1st make sure the graphics card is in the socket and any cables are securely attached, than try it again if the same problem occurs replace the graphics card.

If the computer will run for an hour without a problem after cutting out than it is a problem with the Processor and Ram, without another computer with an identical processor socket you can not test this and have to replace both. If you do have another computer with a motherboard that has an identical processor socket, you can test the processor simply by swapping them around and running it in your other computer. If the problem occurs again swap the processors back and than swap the RAM cards one at a time. If after doing this you still have a problem The solution is to replace the Power supply.

If the computer will run for less than 30 minutes with out a problem after cutting out than the problem is with the cooling and heat dissipation in your computer. Try upgrading the CPU heat sink and CPU Fan, you might also want to try adding some RAM Heat sinks to your RAM cards, and maybe a Graphics Card Heat sink. But most definitely upgrade the number of fans and if possible the size of a case fan in your computer. Try running your computer in a cooler environment.

If you still have problems after upgrading the cooling than the Problem is the Power Supply you need to replace this. If you want to go back to the old cooling system you were using most computer shops will give you a refund as long as components are not damaged and are clean, and in there boxes with the receipt. But at the price of desktop cooling components these days you would be bettor off keeping them in my opinion as they come in useful for all sorts of things. 4 cpu fans glued together correctly and you have a room fan lol
Good luck.

Emachines W5243, two years old, cuts off during wake-up


Possible solution
If this is an i/o problem then i would suggest that you clean the computer out. Go to the computer store and buy yourself one or two cans of compressed air. When you get them you are going to want to shut down your computer and disconnect the power from everything since the next step involves opening the computer case up. Remove the screws on thew back of the unit that hold the cover on, you will be able to see which screws do what. Open the cover up and take a look, the cpu cooler plugged with dust etc. Take the air can and styart blowing the dust and dirt out of the computer, also make sure that you clean out the poiwer supply as well. This will be the place where the plugin connects to the computer. There are fans and other things in the computer as well that you should blow out. If this problem is i/o this may just fix it for you.
Hope this helps

How to install cut and paste on my computer? The last time that my computer was rebooted it was ''lost''


Right mouse clicks should show you the options from the drag down menu. You can try using the keyboard: CTRL+X for cut and CTRL+V for paste. Alternatively, you can key in the "right click" key (usually between the ALT and CTRL keys on the right side of your keyboard) followed by T for cut and P for paste.

How do I download my computer files onto a Kingston DataTraveler 110


Look for the DataTraveller in My Computer and then just copy and paste or cut and paste any files you want straight to the DataTraveler.
Right click on the file, select copy or cut (cut will move the file permanently, copy will just make a copy of it)
Right click the DataTraveler and paste.
