Possible reason for it shutting down after running for a while could be faulty memory. If you can download Ultimate Boot CD from the internet you will be able to run a few diagnostic tests. Try some of the memory diagnostic tools and also check the hard drive. Another possibility is that it is something to do with the Lifebook power supply. If all fails, take it to a technician to get it checked out.

Could me many things. Let's think. I installed an antivirus once that would get stuck scanning some file, the CPU-- the main processor in the latop-- would go to 100% and would get so hot that the fans would go crazy cooling it down. It could easily shut down if left on all day from heat.

Another laptop I had- I read on the support boards (it would get hot and the fans would be very loud) that the thermal last between the CPU fan and the CPU would degrade, causing the heat dissipation to decrease-- the heat of teh CPU was not being wicked away through the paste to the CPU fan. Boom- the laptops would shut down from too much heat.

Did you install any new software lately? If no, it could be a hardware problem like I mentioned above.

Third, a friend of mine had a gateway laptop that would get very hot-- he could hardly use it. It was a loose/faulty graphics card that would get very got, causing teh fans to go on, and then the computer to **** down.

Many of these hardware problems are tough to solve over email like this because you need technical knowledge. Further, most of these require the unit to be sent in to fix, really, especially in the case of laptops which are tougher even to get at than desktops.

Call the manufacturer, as they might be able to talk you through a fix or sending it in. Even if it costs $130 bucks, it's still not the 500-600 you need for a new computer...

Good luck!

Can you upgrade cpu in dell 15 i5559-4682slv to i7 ?


It is almost impossible to upgrade proprietary makes like Dell and HP. The are big enough to have motherboards made for them manufactured on price point. This means that they are not built with upgrade in mind. Also the cases are made to fit their motherboard and theirs only.

Go to a computer builder and get a good case, buy a good quality motherboard and equip it with what you can afford. In two years you can upgrade as processors have moved on. Two years after that, you can swap out the motherboard, processor and memory.

Are 2002 Aztec computers compatible


I am assuming you are discussing the 2002 Pontiac Aztec, the early crossover with the rather distinctive look. I would assume that since they were made by the same manufacturer and they used the same parts that their computers should be compatible. I can't say so for certain as you haven't provided much information, but, unless one of the Aztec owner swapped out the original computer and replaced it with an updated device, the computers should be compatible.

If you are thinking of trying to swap computer chips, I would advise you to wait and let a professional do it at an independent shop. The reason I suggest this is simple, unless you know how to access the computer chip correctly, you risk accidentally ruining it. If you handle the replacement chip incorrectly it is entirely possible that for a stray static charge to ruin the chip by blowing out a trace. Also, if you damaged the socket from which the original chip was removed then it is possible that you will not be able to reinsert the new device without bending any leads on the bottom. If the leads are damaged, then the new computer won't work.

Even if the new computer chip and the original chip were already installed in installable cases (the way most desktop computer chips are installed), it is possible that when you removed the computer, you might have damaged the receiving socket which means that when you go to insert the new computer carrier it won't work correctly because a few or many of the pins on the bottom of the board won't sit correctly.

Burning movies on the computer , playback fine on two computeers , will not play on ONN portable player used DVD-R


Burning dvd\'s is always a crapshoot when you have multiple machines. Computer drives are more tolerant on playback - the problem lies with your other, independent playback units. That is why in your main viewing area it is important that you have a few units so that if disk does not play in one machine, it will play on another. Has to do with the individual differences and calibrations of the machines involved. Store bought dvd\'s have less problems because their laser reflectivity is always higher than disks you burn, and therefore, easier to read properly. Price of the unit has no reflection on ability to properly read the disk. Sometimes and often, a cheaper machine will work better with copies - you never know.

How do i reset my computer to an earlier date?


Most computers have a RTC or "real time clock" in the BIOS. BIOS (or "Basic Input Output System") controls how data gets into and out from the processor (via keyboard, disk, etc.). Be careful making changes. The BIOS is normally only accessable when the computer is powered on or reset, and then only while performing the POST (or "Power On Self Test"). At this time your screen may display text describing memory, drives, controllers, etc. Some machine have a "silent boot" enabled which displays a manufacturer's graphic or logo instead of this data. It is during this time the the BIOS may be accessed. Depending on the manufacturer of your computer, a key (Delete, Escape, F1 or some other) or key combination (ALT + F1, ALT + S, or some other) will be needed. It is required to press the key or key combination prior to the Operating System loading message(s). This can be done be repeatedly pressing the key (or key combination) once every second (or two) during the POST. Holding the key(s) down the entire time - or pressing them too often will result in an error, and require starting over again.

Once the BIOS screen is presented, you will have to scroll the entire page(s) to find the clock. Most BIOS brands have more than just a single page of settings. Using the the up, down, left, right, PgUp, PgDn & Enter keys - navigate to the clock hours and minutes and adjust as needed. Make sure that you SAVE changes before exiting the BIOS screen. Upon exit, the computer will reboot with your settings.

Your Operating System may also provide a way for you to change the system time (and date) as well. Try clicking on the time / date to see if it will bring up a dialog box that allows you to make the change.

I hope this helps and good luck! If my answer was helpful, please rate it "4 thumbs up" Thanks!

How to install Anti virus on my desktop


Following the steps to install antivirus on you pc.

Compare antivirus software. Look at the features and benefits of each. Read reviews from authoritative editors from magazines such as "PC World," "Smart Computing" and "PC Magazine." Editors who write for these magazines typically test antivirus software as an unbiased outsider and write about both the good and bad sides of antivirus software. For example, the editors at "PC World" recommended Avira AntiVir, Avast Antivirus and Panda Cloud Antivirus in an August 2009 article. Visit the websites of each antivirus program to view screen shots and descriptions of how the program works. Make a final decision about which antivirus program you want to install.

Navigate to the website of the antivirus program you've chosen. Go to the "Downloads" section of the site if you're obtaining a free antivirus software. Click on the "Purchase" section or "Buy" button if you have chosen licensed software; pay for and complete the transaction. Click the "Download" button or link for the antivirus program. Save the file to your computer desktop or to a computer directory or folder which you can easily remember.

Find the antivirus program file you downloaded on your computer. Double-click the ".exe" file (which is an executable file that will install the antivirus program). Once you double-click the ".exe" file, the installation process will automatically begin. Click "Continue" or "Next" on each screen to complete the installation process. Enter your name and contact details if registration is required. Follow any other on-screen prompts to complete the antivirus program installation. Restart your computer if necessary.
