White screen after about 20 minutes of operation

old old , 1710s, most are now dead, you know that right?
all have CCFL tubes in it.(problematic for sure)
and had a sleep mode inside, (problem 2) sure.

so with PC turned on, the push the menu key
and turn off the sleep timer, keep it off for ever.
it is not compatible with NEWER PCs at all.

the Monitor is bad,

if cable and pc are ok, the monitor is bad.

The dryer itself works fine, the timer goes too fast, if I set it to 150 mins it will be back at zero in about 10 mins probably less, this has only just started happening, I have always used 30-45 min

This is a mechanical timer that has an old fashioned timer spring inside. The spring is corroded or broken. If you want to save a buck, With the breaker supplying power turned off, Open the panel and look for an opening in the actual switch and, using the narrow tube that comes with CRC or WD40 spray and lubricate it. Then exercise the switch while the power is off. Second choice...order the part from the manufacturer!

I have a 6 station orbit timer and I have problem with station 2 odd days coming on again after station 4 odd days the time is set to come on at 6 am and run for 60 min an10 min after it shuts off to start...

I am somewhat confused about your station numbers. How many stations do you have? What is Ihappening with stations 1, 3, 5, 6?
Regardless, this is probably what is happening.
No matter how many stations you have, YOU ONLY PUT IN ONE START TIME. That one start time begins the cycle that starts with station 1 and proceeds to the other stations based on your station RUN times.
If you have one start time of 6:00 am, and a run time of 60 minutes for each zone, then
At 6:00 am station 1 starts.
at 7:00, station 1 shuts off & station 2 starts.
at 8:00, station 2 shuts and station 3 starts, etc.
You are not programming the individual start times for each station.
If you put in more than one start time, the timer remembers and will run all stations then go back and begin again and if there is a third start time, it will begin a third time.

Put my washing on at a 60 degree wash for 1 hour 40 mins. Went back to machine several hours later, there was tiny amount of water on floor and machine had water in it but the wash had not progressed any...

Sounds like a blockage perhaps the filter needs cleaning or pump blades jammed...If its a Hotpoint then filter is middle of sump hose connected to the drum....

TIMER PROBLEM??? I have a Kenmore Elite Mod# 110.63932101. You can set the timer for 60 min's and watch it spin all the way down, beep & shut off in about 5 min's. Everything seems to be operating fine...

The operating thermostat controls the timer and should open and close the circuit as it senses heat during the dry cycle. If it fails to open it will just keep the timer 'energized all the time and run straight through and go off. Change the 'operating thermostat'

What is the formula to convert the time of 4:15 to 4.25 hours? I'm trying to add up the number of hours I do child care.

If you calculate 0.1hr as 6mins, you can get what you ask for.. This is just 1/10th of an hr.. to put it more easy, the time which you get, convert it into mins.. (1hr=60mins) and then divide by 60.. For eg:

3hrs = 180mins -> 180/60 = 3hrs
3hrs 20mins = 180+20mins -> 200/60 = 3.33hrs
4hrs 30mins = 240+30mins -> 270/60 = 45.hrs..

Simple math, isn't it??

Refigerator leaked water slightly then stoped cooling

Yes try to turn with a screw driver if possible. If it start working replace timer. If not it can be low on freon you would see frosting but no cooling.
