How do i turn on my protege pc link and does it require a battery
I have had this thing for quite some time and just dusted the dust off it last nite and tried to install the software...i think i did it right? not for certain if i did but how in the world do you turn this thing on? does it take battery? help old school person trying to step up to the new times (a little at a time)
the product is a Protege PC Link
Re: how do i turn on my protege pc link and does it...
Jean, yes this does take 2 "cr2025 lithium" batteries, which are pretty easy to find anywhere that sells watch batteries.
However, when I purchased mine it had a plastic tab sticking out of the back of it, from under the battery access cover, which was blocking the batteries from making contact to prevent them from draining before first use, so you might want to check if there's a piece of clear plastic sticking out of the back and if so, just pull it out.
If that's not the case, then odds are the batteries did drain while sitting and you'll need to replace them.
Hope this helps, Scott

i thing that not monitor is dead but Ovegheated and Resolded of GPU. it can couse the dusts... when the last time u cleaned dust from pc inside cooler?? if realy u need to resold in gpu processor.. then you will be hapy.. how to do that.. i can tell you but it is wery dangerous if u never done something like that... to fix u need special air gun..
NO it does not require ceramic brakes. The ceramic brakes are just a different option to the type of brake pads available out on the market.
The ceramic brakes uses ceramic which helps keep the wheels cleaner. Ceramic brakes has less brake dust then conventional brake pads like the Semi metallic brake pads which leave more brake dust on the the wheels.
Note though that ceramic brake pads are harder and last longer with less brake fade then the conventional brake pads. The only thing about the ceramic is that they don't work as good as the conventional brake pads till the heat up during hard braking.
In short the difference between the two, ceramic last longer but you go through replacing your rotor every time you replace your brake pads and there is no brake fade but weak till they heat up.
Semi Metallic brake pads almost last as long, and leave more coating of brake dust on your wheels. Your rotor will last longer and great brakes and will have a slight brake fade when over heated from hard stopping from hight speeds.
Thank you for using fixya and be safe.
Yeah.Here is cheap way that works at about 85% of the time.ABS sensor has been made to last quite a while.The most common reason that light comes on is because sensors get dirty from brake dust.Ok.If you got Air compressor and blower gun,remove the each wheel at the time,you will see sensor on the back of the barke disc.Blow the air all around it,clean that debris and dust.After you clean everything remove battery cable for about 15 minutes and hook the battery up again.This should solve your problem in 85-90% of time.Hope I could help.
Hmmmm, I'm thinking DUST has clogged your fan and the CPU is overheating and shutting down your computer. Find a way to blow some air through the vents in the case. This may loosen up any dust and if your lucky it'll blow out. Only other thing I can think of is to open the case and take a look.... if you are confident enough. If not don't.
Hi there. The reason you can smell burning plastic and why its shutting down after a short time is because its overheating. This can be caused by a build up of dust on the CPU fan, overtime with dust build up computers struggle to keep themselves cool and tend to shut down unexpectedly, chances are this is the problem with your machine, my advice would be to remove the power cord, open the side panel of the computer and clean all the dust away from inside the tower, do this with a soft, clean paintbrush making sure you remove the dust carefully and gently, also make sure the CPU fan and the heat sync behind it is completely free of dust or any other foreign objects. Once you are happy that its clear of dust, close or return the side panel, plug in the power cord and turn the PC on, you may find that the PC will stay on for longer with the smell dramatically reduced.
Please post back with the results and thanks for using FixYa!!
There could be three (3) reasons why the low battery indicator is activated: 1. weak/undercharge/discharge batteries; 2. dirty/corroded/loose battery contacts/terminals; and/or 3. internal fault with the electronic sensing for battery level/state.
Corrective measures would require: a. replace/recharge batteries. The new rechargeable batteries need at least 16 hours of charging time; b. clean, scrape, tighten (need to bend a little more towards the battery terminals) the spring/contacts of the battery holder; c.
(on the internal fault) your best bet might be to seek the services of
a professional electronic technician since this would need familiarity
with electronic components, their circuitry and diagnosis, perhaps a
bit of soldering and the use of a DVM.
Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

I have a toshiba laptop which was unexpectedly switching off. The laptop was 2 years old. I did lots of searching online to discover this is a VERY COMMON ISSUE.
The problem is, dust blocks the heatsink. When I took my computer to pieces, I found a strip of dust half an inch (1cm) thick covering the back of the heatsink which prevented air flow. If your laptop is a couple of years old, this could be the problem. When I removed this dust, the problem disappeared.
If you are computer savvy, then try the following - if not, take it down to a computer shop!
1) Remove the 5 screws holding down the heat sink cover and processor cover. These are on the bottom of the laptop, in the centre, at the back.
2) Remove the 3 screws which hold in the heat sink in place.
3) Remove the heatsink
4) Take the dust out
a note: be careful not to get dust in the thermal paste on the cpu - unless you have replacement paste.
