Check you CPU central processing unit make sure its securely seated and has thermal paste it might be getting to hot the thermal paste will help disperse the heat Thermal compound is a sticky paste that is placed directly onto the CPU. http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/Thermal-Compound-Roundup-February-2012/1490 Allowing for a more direct heat transfer between the CPU and HEAT SINK and preventing air gaps from forming between the CPU and heat sink. Remove the memory modules from their slots. Take the opportunity to clean the slots on the motherboards and the memory module connectors. Use compressed air to blow dust away and clean contacts with a soft cloth. Do not use a metallic vacuum cleaner if it touches any component it may create a short and cause damage to the motherboard or other components. Do not use solvent that may attract dust and never poke things like cotton buds in to slots. lightly rub an alcohol on a cloth not to hard let the alcohol do the work on the copper gold or silver tabs and r Allow the pins to dry. They will air dry in a matter of minutes If reseating the memory did not resolve the issue try swapping the location of the memory. If you have only one stick of memory in the computer try moving it to another slot and then boot the computer. Check the memory module and memory slot contacts. They are either copper tin or gold. The colour will tell you which they are. Mixing tin and gold can result in corrosion that prevents proper contact. Look for any sign of physical damage to the memory module, memory slots or the motherboard.
Reseat the memory modules. You should hear an audible click when they are in place. Do not use too much force to reseat the memory module in to the slot this can cause damage to the module, slot or motherboard. The hardware that you are trying to access is damaged or failing.



There is a connection problem such as a bad cable for internal hard drives
Test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive SATA
the leads from your MOTHERBOARD TO THE HARD DRIVE make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty. Make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd and floppy (If Applicable) have secure connections and are not faulty.
Computers need Power and Data to travel through every working device and continue an uninterrupted cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error.

Hope this helps.

If you are testing the motherboard by removing items plugged into it, remember to leave the CPU Heatsink on if the CPU is still in the socket otherwise the CPU will overheat in seconds or minutes and could be damaged.

If you power on the system, do the fans spin? such as the CPU heatsink fan? If no fans are spinning that are connected to the motherboard, see if the fan is spinning inside the power supply using a flashlight if needed. If not, try a known good power outlet or different plug on your surge bar or a new surge bar.
Even if the power supply fan is spinning, the power supply could be faulty. Borrow or buy one that matches the current wattage written on the side (ie: "output 350W")

Post back here with more info or if anything of this sounds like the issue you are having.

IE code was displayed once. washer will not stop filling or spinning, clock freezes one minute past start up for wash cycle and while washer fills fast and in less than 5 minutes the washer does not stop...


The fault you have is a faulty inlet valve or possibly an electronic controller fault, you need to check with a multi meter if the inlet solenoid is always getting power or if there is constant power, (take care as this is mains power, if in doubt pay a professional to test) if the power stops but the water keeps flowing this is a relatively easy fix with a replacement inlet solenoid, if they fail the water pressure can hold them open and the machine will keep filling.
If there is always power to the solenoid then you have a faulty electronic control board.

Cpu fan spin and stop


1) Computer unplugged from power, computer case open, Anti-Static Precautions FOLLOWED;

Use a flashlight, and inspect the Electrolytic Capacitors.

Close examination reveals no bad 'caps', then test the Power Supply's 3 main voltages;
3.3 Volts
5 Volts
12 Volts
All are DC Voltage

Or use a KNOWN to be good, Compatible power supply for a temporary test unit.

MY SAMSUNG P35 LAPTOP STOP ITSELF ON BATERY AND AC POWER


This maybe heat problem.
When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermaloverload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is theproblem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make surethe vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed airto do this.

Computer keeps shutting down.


Do the fan's spin when you power the PC on? All of the fans should spin up for at least a second upon initial boot. The CPU fan and video fan (if you have an external card) will spin the entire time the PC is on and vary in speed depending on temperature.

Try booting the PC with the side of the case off and note and fans that aren't spinning. The temperature to shut off the CPU is really high. If the temperature is getting hot enough to do this, you should notice a failure in a fan right away.

Computer will only work for 5 or so minutes before it freezes.


It is probably tired :-)

Seriously - open the lid and check that the CPU fan spins when you turn it on. If not try spinning it to start it.
You may need a new CPU fan.

you may have less fans than possible readings. That 0 rpm fan may be absent and so it is not the problem.

Cpu fan noise problem


You should check and make sure the inside of your computer isn't dusty. Dust will wreak havok on fans and shorten their life. Plus it likes to build up between the fan and heatsink which will overheat your processor. Take the fan off and spin it with your fingers. I like to open the little sticker on the bottom and put some 3 in 1 oil to lubricate it. A smooth spinning fan is a happy computer. It also reduces noise that a dirty fan makes. Hope this helps you.
