Question about Dell Inspiron 530 Desktop Computer

1 Answer

Not able to access programs or shutoff correctly

This happens only when the computer has been on for a number of hours. When I try to open most programs, a red sign comes on saying I do not have "correct permissions." Then when I try to reboot or to shut off, the computer gets stuck in one of the phases, and I have to push and hold the start button to force a shutoff. When I turn it on again (even if immediately), a screen says the computer didn't shut down normally. But then I tell it to "open windows normally" and it does, and everything is fine..all programs work, shutoff works, no problems....for a few hours.
This happens every day, even when the programs which I have been using during the day are different from those of the preceding day. Help.

Have you opened the computer case and cleaned out all of the dirt and lent lately? The way you discribe it happening after a period of time leads me to think the CPU is overheating .

How do I set coffee maker to shut off in 2 hrs and how to use clean cycle


Not knowing which model you have, here are the instructions for my model. Perhaps yours is the same.

"The Automatic Shutoff
Time can be programmed anywhere from immediate shutoff after completion of the brew cycle up to four hours. When the coffeemaker shuts itself off, two tones will sound. Two hours is the default time. The 0:00 setting shuts the unit off immediately after brewing is complete.
To check the current setting, press and hold the On/Off button and the Automatic Shutoff Time will be displayed.
To change the preset time, press and hold the On/Off button until the red power light and LCD display begin to flash. This signals that you have entered the Set Automatic Shutoff mode.
Press the Hours and Min buttons to scroll forward through the digits until desired time appears. The first setting which appears is preset at 2:00. When it's at 4:00, the next press key of Hour will roll back to 0:00, since four hours is the maximum Automatic Shutoff setting. Pressing and holding either button will allow you to scroll continuously, slowly at first, and then to accelerate to the rate of about three digits per second. As the desired time setting approaches, release the button and then press repeatedly to advance one digit at a time. The Automatic Shutoff Time (ASO) may be 8 9 programmed either before or during coffee brewing. You may also re-program the ASO time when brewing has been completed. If you do so, the Grind & Brew™ will automatically account for any time that has already elapsed after brewing. For example, if you set the ASO for 40 minutes and 25 minutes have already elapsed, the Grind & Brew™ will shut off automatically after 15 minutes (40 minutes minus the 25 elapsed equals 15 minutes)."

Mine doesn't have a specific clean cycle, but to decalcify the unit, add 1/2 vinegar to 2/3 water in a full cafree and run it through. If it's really calcified, turn off about 1/2 way through and let it set for an hour. Then turn it on and finish, Remember to run a pot of clean water through the wash out the vinegar taste.

Nextbook8 on charger 8 hours. An only 60% charged this time?


Good evening
This happened to my iPad. When I discovered that there were many programs open, I closed them and it charged.
hope this works for you as it did for me. Some one told me that it was a good idea to plug the tablet to a computer and charge it that way.

Assuming that you are correct about being malware free, my next best guess is that the machine is overheating. Overheating can cause a PC to slow down. A simple way to help with an overheating PC is to clean all dust from it, especially dust stuck in the fans and on the CPU heatsink.

My problem! is when i want to open a file my pc


this is happening when the file association with the program is not made...either the program for that file to be open with is not present...or the file was transferred into the computer and you never had this kinda files before and first time you have to choose a program to open the file with...
in this 2 cases you have to know the type (format ) of the file and browse...choose my computer ..than C drive .../program file...and there choose the suitable program for the file...
and from then on ...the files of that kind will be opened with that program...
if you do not know what program to choose...let me know the file type...(look at the properties by right click on the file and choose properties..there will be at least the abbreviation of the file type..)
and with the name of the file format ..I will look for a program or ..tell you what program to choose for it ..
Another thing that might been happening .(in case that the computer makes this request for all files when yo are trying to open them ) ..is that you been hit by a virus that affected the file association feature ...and you will probably need to reinstall the operation system to be sure that this is removed for good..(format the C partition during the install)....
Or ...if your computer remember the program just as long it is running and after restart is doing the same ...in this case the Bios Battery is dead or not making the correct contact ...and the computer do not remember the associations choices and it need to be changed....this can be easy recognized cause a side effect is the clock will not be on time...but get to the bios manufacturing date..and 0 hour each time you open it ..in this case change the bios battery ..and it will remember the settings...all you have to do is to re-associate the file one more time after changing it .. accurate ..

No instructions on programming auto shut-off time (feature listed on box).


You have to use the "Auto-Off" feature, which is located on the same button as on/off:
The automatic shutoff time (ASO) can be
programmed to shut off immediately after
brewing (0:00) or up to 4 hours later. The
default shutoff time is 2 hours.
Press and hold the On/Off button to display
current shutoff time. To change the preset
time, press and hold the On/Off button until
the red power light and LCD display begin to
flash. This signals that you have entered the
Set automatic shutoff mode. Set the time
you want coffee to begin brewing by
following the instructions in “Entering Time
Set Mode.”
When the coffeemaker shuts itself off, two
tones will sound.
NOTE: Automatic shutoff may be
programmed either before or during coffee
brewing. If you program the auto shutoff
time after brewing is completed the unit
will automatically account for elapsed time.
For example, if you set the auto shutoff for
40 minutes and 25 minutes have already
elapsed, the unit will shut off automatically
after 15 minutes (40 minutes minus the 25
elapsed equals 15 minutes).
