    well, the MP3 is brand new and i changed the battery just a minute after it went flat. I actually just read on your website a similar case and it's obviously not supposed to happen. So I guess i will just change it for a new one if it happens again. Thx for your help anyway and keep helping us! =)

If you leave the battery out, or dead, for an extended amount of time, it will reset. if you replace batteries as soon as they start going weak, you shoul dbe fine.

97 blazer lost coolant, stopped immediately due to loss of power. Now won't turn over?

Can you see where the coolant is coming from or were it's going? This vehicles are notorious for the lower intake gasket leaking and at times it could mix with the oil. Check your oil level if higher than normal or a milky appearance you may need to chance the gasket and change the oil.

2001 Mustang GT. Motor shut down on quick acceleration. Won't restart. Traction control light lights up "Off" Making clicking noise. Doesn't reset when ignition switched off or battery...

Hello and welcome to FixYa!

You may just have system failure. As a first course of action, I strongly suggest that you remove the positive battery connector and let it sit for at least 5mins. before reconnecting it. This will reset the system and can get your vehicle back to it's normal operation.

This thing really happens and reconnecting the positive battery connector serves like a jumpstart to the vehicle's PCM (powertrain control module).

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

My laptop is making a taping sound continusly

Turn it off immediately and take the device in for service. It could be a fan malfunctioning, which could lead to overheating problems. It could also be your hard drive failing, which leaving it on would only further increase the chance of that happening which would cause a loss of the data you have on the drive.

Shut it down and take the battery out for good measure. It isn't worth risking damage to your hardware or catastrophic data loss.

Tascam 2488 locked up/frozen

This will reinitialize it to the factory settings. All data (music) will be lost.
With the 2488 turned OFF
Simultaneouly, hold down the Quick Routing, Shift, Send and Shut Down buttons.
With all buttons pressed .... turn the 2488 ON.

It shoulld go through the normal boot up screens, including a screen that states ' partitioning drive', etc. When finished it will show ' Factory Settings Reinitialized - Reboot (or something like that) and you are done.

I have the original 2488 as well, and tried everything recommended to address the HDD lockups.
I think I know why Tascam eliminated the Tone Generator (Drums) on the MKII and Neo versions.
Too much for the processor to handle?? Hope this helps.

I own a Acer Extensa 5620 notebook, was running fine, it was plugged in and with a full battery until I got up to take a break and came back to it shut-off. I tried to re-start it and it would attempt to...

Ouch..don't mean to preach but that is why you are supposed to back up once a month, week or whatever your needs are...normally sudden shut down and not being able to reboot means it got overheated, the CPU has an internal survival tool that causes it to shut off before any damage is done. so consequently the shutdown and the won't boot symptons..sometimes this also happens with bad RAM which also could have been caused by overheating..I don't see any reason you would have any data loss.. the hard drive problems happen after it boots then can't load the operating system but all the lights are on just not the operating system. It gets overheated if the fan suddenly quits working like its suppose too. So you should be ok. Hope this helps. Please rate this solution before logging off.

USB card memory drop & files lost

Your card is showing signs of improper removal or virus infestation. I would run a virus scan on it at once, back up any remaining data (after scanning of course), then follow the instructions when you remove the card from your computer. Not shutting down the card before removing is similar to turning off your computer without shutting down first. Usually it's ok, but it can cause data loss.

Good luck.

Psp turned off while playing game and I lost all saved data.

Hey there, may have received a "short" in your PSP. What I would reccomend firstly is this...Go ahead and take the battery out of your PSP and then reseat it. Unfortunately, if your PSP is turning on right now, but you have no saved data, the memory stick may have been wiped...unless of course you have other data and just not the data of the game your playing. Data is stored in the onboard memory of the PSP and unfortunately when the game recieves a shock like you've said it lets go of the memory, much like someone pushing you in the hallway and you lose your books. I hope this gave you ideas, and/or solved your problem.

In order to return the memory to normal (allowing further input and editing of data), you must perform the RESET OPERATION to clear the memory of all data-Make sure you have backed up or taken a hardcopy of this information before Resetting or it will be gone and there is nothing you can do to get it back.Once you have RESET you can re-input the data you have written down.
