    Computers have always been good at making their own heat, and that's the reason there are fans inside. So what you say surprises me. Maybe knowing the make and model of the computer, and about how old, would help us to help you?

The approach to upgrading depends on many things. The motherboard and bios capabilities, and the processor socket type being the most signifigant. The 400 Mhz PIII processor does meet the minimum requirements for running XP, albeit rather slow. I suspect you may have some really strange hardware failure, either in the motherboard or the power supply. I myself would look into getting a new or different computer, but you could easily try a new ATX power supply. Of course, I don't know what files you may have stored, but you will probably have at least some things you would want to save to a new computer if you went that way. I did see a similar situation once, the 120/230 switch was set on 230. Another thing to check is the line voltage in the power strip your computer monitor etc. are plugged into. Maybe the heater makes a signifigant change there when it's on?

Will I still have water running to the water heater if I shut off the bypass valve?


Bypass valve is to bypass the water heater. No bypass valve and always water in tank. Put a bypass valve and shut it up it is like no bypass valve.Open the bypass and shut up the input (cold water) and output hot water) no running water in heater tank but still have cold water in the rest of the house even in the hot side of the faucet.

Lets try this again. Computer just shut off near the end of my explanation. Once more, these computer operated engines in vehicles now are just plain finicky. No signal from a faulty sensor will not change the situation. When first start, the computer puts it in cold start mode, putting more fuel into the engine so it will start and keep running. If the faulty temperature sensor is not sending a warmed up signal to the computer, it stays in cold start mode, dumping excess fuel into the engine when warm and it won't run right. First thing I'd do is check and change the temperature sending unit. Ya gotta be smarter than the computer to figure these things out. Mainly just some common sense works too. I still haven't figured out why my computer shut down a few minutes ago. Like I'd pushed the off button. It's a computer, garbage in, garbage out.

Intermitant temperature


Check to make sure your thermostat works right by monitoring the warming up of your engine. With a completely cold engine, start and run the engine for a few minutes, then put your hand on the top radiator hose to monitor if and when it gets warm as the thermostat opens more and more and note the gauge reading( if it works) the top radiator hose should be unbearably hot within 5-8 minutes. If the therm. opens right it should close right aswell, staying open a little while eventhough the radiator may have cooled may be what you are experiencing causing the rapid cooling and is nothing to worry about. The Hose should not get warm very soon after starting the engine. Regarding you gauge, lets take one step at a time, verify proper op. or the therm.
