Question about Sony VAIO PCV-W600G PC Desktop

1 Answer

Computer shutsdown unexpectedly

My computer just suddenly shutsdown without any warning and the power button does not turn it on, i have to unplug it and wait at least 10 seconds before putting it back in, when i boot, it asks me to go into power settings, I have tried loading the default settings and booting but it takes me back to the same screen. At first i thought it was overheating so I left it unplugged for a night and let it cool down, when i boot up, i logged into windows and tried to make a recovery disk but it shut down halfway through. I tried turning it on again and it just shutdown while I was on the power settings.
I think its a hardware problem.

It sounds like it is overheating. Take the side off the case and see if your CPU fan works. Replace any fans that do not work or feel loose. And while you are at it, take a can of air and blow the dirt out of it.
Leaving it off overnight will not prevent it from overheating. A computer can overheat in a matter of seconds under the right circumstances.

How do i reset the bios without a picture


Unplug the computer from power. Press the Power On button in, and hold it in for a count of 10 seconds. (1001,..1002,..1003,..) Let go. Do this 2 more times. If the Power On LED light blinks after the 3rd time, perform again until it doesn't. WAIT 20 seconds. Plug the computer back into power. WAIT 60 seconds, turn the computer on. What you are doing is clearing CMOS Error Codes, and resetting BIOS Setup back to the factory default settings.

How to reboot computer


Sarcastically: Turn it off, then turn it on again

Seriously: If the computer does not have a button specifically for reseting power then hold the power button in for about 5-10 seconds. That is the average amount of time for the newer computers to turn off while holding the button in.

If for some reason the pc does not shut down after holding the power button in for about 5-10 seconds then simply unplug the power cord, wait 30 seconds and then plug the power cord back in.
NOTE: This is not the recommended method for rebooting a computer and can cause damage to your PC. The damage that can be caused includes, but is not limited to: Loss of data on any re-writable media in use, permanent damage to motherboard/power supply/etc.

My psp was working before but now it suddenly hanged up..i cant use it now..how can i reformat my psp?? do you know some ways???


Hello :

  1. Remove the battery from the left side of the PSP while it is still on. The unit will power down instantly. Wait ten seconds and then replace the battery.
  2. Press both clear shoulder buttons at the top of the PSP and keep them held while the PSP reboots. A "Recovery" mode will be initiated.
  3. Press down on the control pad to locate a "recovery" folder. This will contain all of your PSP content, including games, music, videos and podcasts that are saved on the device. Highlight this folder and press the "X" button to begin reinstalling your content.

Warnings
  • If you would like to reset your PSP while it is working normally, you can do so by going to the Settings menu and selecting "System Reset." This will get rid of all your content and restore the PSP to factory settings (and subsequently remove all of your content.)

Or try this for hard resetting :

  1. Locate your Power button on your PSP. Push the power button up for 10 seconds.
  2. The PSP will and should shut off. Leave the PSP off for 30 seconds.
  3. Turn your PSP back on by flicking the power button up very quickly. If it doesn't turn on, try pushing the power button forward very quickly again. (sometimes you have to do it 2-3 times)
  4. Your PSP should be working now. If not, then you may have a firmware problem.
Warning:
  • Do not have your PSP plugged into a power supply.
  • If your PSP doesn't turn off after 10 seconds (of power button being help up) then remove your battery and wait 30 seconds, and then replace
good luck .

rate please !

Cannon printer quit working suddenly.


Is it possible that the cord came unplugged from the transformer itself instead of the printer or wall plug?
A power outage shouldn't affect it, but a power surge can. Please use surge protection circuits on your computer equipment. It's so much cheaper than repairing or replacing them.
Take it from someone who learned the hard way....
You can try a printer reset. Turn the printer off, unplug the power and data cables from the machine. Wait at least ten minutes to allow the printer cache to be purged.(Canon's recommendation)
Then plug back in and turn on.
I hope this works for you! Good luck!

Unit Keeps Powering Off...Will not stay on


The first thing you need to try is unpluging the unit from the wall totally then wait for about 5 minutes then plug it back in and try again,if you get the same results the cassete is probably stuck in the vcr and that is why the it unit shutsdown.It will continuo to do this until thye cassete is taken out without being force.The unit will need to be service by a professional.
