    my son ran memtest+

    after 15 minutes it froze, which leads me to believe its either the RAM or the Mobo.



    any other idea's that may help narrow it down?

You can download an .iso file called memtest+ that you burn onto a disk and run when you reboot your computer. you'll have to make sure you have cd-rom as the first boot device in your bios though.
you can also download the same program to boot from your USB key, if you have one, and just make that the priority boot device in bios for that method.
here's the download link, download whichever one suits you best..

    i had a memory problem before where i took out the ram in the first slot and put the ram from the second slot into the first slot. i just ran a test with only one stick of ram in and it finished fine. all i could tell from that was that there was a problem with the first stick of ram. i'm not sure how comfortable you would feel about opening the machine up, but it worked for me. i never did resolve what the problem was with the dodgy stick of ram, but at least it isolated the problem and it stopped my computer from crashing.

    that's all the ideas i got mate.

    if you do decide to bite the bullet and buy a new stick of ram, make sure the stick with the largest amount of memory is in the first slot before you boot up.i don't know exactly why, but i've read that this is extremely important.

Toyota heater no warm air for 15mins


Sounds like an air lock!
To Check....
With engine cold set heater to hot position.
ID return pipe from heater under the hood. Remove the return pipe at one end to check if coolant is there ( it should run from heater pipe) if no coolant you have an air lock.
To remove air lock top up coolant header when engine is cold. Leave heater in cold position replace pipe and start engine. Allow it to come to working temp then set heater to hottest position. Allow a few seconds and check if the pipe you first removed is hot. If no then ease the securing clip and carefully allow air to escape while engine is running... place a cloth over this area to prevent hot coolant spraying out. When coolant appears re-tighten pipe.
"PLEASE BE VERY CAREFUL DOING THIS AS COOLANT WILL BE EXTREMELY HOT".
If you're not confident enough to do this ask a qualified mechanic to do it for you.
Again please be careful.

15mins after i turn it on, it freezes.


The most common reason is memory. Power off your system. Test one memory module at a time to determine the bad module.

If not memory, then probably Malware or Spyware. Download, install, and run MalwareBytes and Spybot.

Hope this helps.

My dell wouldnt post,


It sounds like the motherboard is damaged. Did you try to start with a boot cd? Or will it just not get to the bios setup screen?

Mobo reads less ram than windows


possible that you have incompatible mem installed, the archictecture of the mem could be 32mb x 64bit could mean that the "BIOS" may only be able to see 32Mb x 8 which to me suggests that this is not the correct mem for this Motherboard, is this mem recovered from another system or an old board. Try Kingston.com and use their memory configurator to find the correct mem for your motherboard (enter the MB manuf and model)

Does not read memory card


Casio only tested 3 cards with the camera. Sandisc, Toshiba, Panasonic. First: Format the internal memory of camera and then reset camera. In rec mode press menu go to setup tab go up to format press right arrow highlight format press set. Follow same steps for resetting. Then insert mem card and format mem card. If that still doesn't work I would say there is something wrong with the camera itself and would need to be sent in.
