Question about HP Computers & Internet

(1) How do I turn off the computer fan from surging?

The surging is sporaic but once it starts it continues for 10+ minutes or more. Not sure what causes it to start or stop.

Other concern is that the computer appears to be constantgly running. How do I figure out what is running and limit these actions?

As far as the fan issue goes, especially if it's a laptop, blow out the fan exhaust area. Use compressed air to blow out the ventilation area in the opposite direction that air flows through it normally. You'll be amazed how much dust comes out. You can try one of those crappy over-priced ridiculously low pressure canned air deals but to really get it clean, find someone with an air compressor. A mechanic friend or someone in construction that uses an air nailer maybe? If it's a desktop, try blowing out the processor heat sink preferably with the fan removed. Be careful, start at lower pressure and slowly work your way up. Also, if you take the fan off of the heat sink, be careful not to knock the heat sink off of the processor or you will need to clean both surfaces (heat sink and processor), reapply a thin layer of heat sink grease, and reinstall the heat sink and fan assembly. I'll leave the second half of you question open incase both issues are one-in-the-same.

Replace the fan! The bearings are starting to dry out and that's when it will surge.

The other concern is a little more difficult from your explanation. Try this, open the task manager byt pressing ctrl+alt+del. When the window pops up, left click on Task Manager. Click on the Processes tab at the top of the window. Now click twice on the CPU column to sort the processes so that the highest number is at the top. That will show you which processes are using the most of the CPU time.

Hope this helps.

Check code engine po171


I'd be more concerned at looking into the fact that it takes a while to cool off in order to start up again. P0171/174 codes mean a lean condition. I'd suspect that you may have a problem with Vapor lock on the one bank, which is causing air to form in the fuel rail on that side. Since air compresses, the fuel pressure doesn't necessarily come up enough to restart the engine until the fuel has cooled down enough to stop boiling. Did this start happening once the weather in your area started getting warmer?

Maytag Neptune Dryer runs for about 10 minutes and then stops. If we hit the start button it will run for another 10 minutes. It heats up fine while it is running. When this started we smelled something...


Check for lint buildup on the "Hi Limit Themostat" located above the heating element. There is a thermostat kit that you can get and replace all three at once. This will make sure your dryer runs safe and up to its required operational limits. The lint buildup may cause the thermostats to get out of the tolerance. Here is a link to the thermostat kit.

Dryer starts with heat. After 10-15 minutes, when dryer calls for more heat, here a metal clicking noise, flame does not ignite. When it's clicking, I can look down the back from the top and see a glow....


Your gas valve coils are defective. Part #694539 and 694540 are required. Once the coils get hot they collapse internally and the gas valve shuts off. This is a common problem when valve coils get weak from use.

Trans shifts very hard after 5 minutes of stop and go traffic


A reason for hard shifting could be a problem with many things with various degrees of seriousness. It could be your ATF( automatic transmission fluid) is low or broken down and old. This would cause the hardness and the reason for stop and go traffic effecting it. Another possibility is your transmission is just shot, and the timing gears inside are worn and not properly shifting at the correct RPM causing a **** during shifting.

Some possibilties, not all!

Frigidaire Tumble Action Washer - lights flash, beeps, does nothing else...


If you have had a lightning storm or power surge it may have fried the electronics panel. That is what happened to mine. Once it is fixed you should put a surge suppressor on it that is rated for major appliances.
