SYSTEM SLOW TO LOAD, OVERHEATING AND CANT GET DRIVER

This is Toba from Nigeria en Engineer.

I was given this system to attend to.

the problem of this system is that when i switch it on, it will just display the white screen for 5 seconds and later dark screen for so long time, before attempting to load the operating system.

It can with Mac but i was told someone installed xp on it and can not find the sound and display driver.

Then i can not enter to the bios setup because i have not been attending to this apple product before.

Please help me out, i have nothing less than 24 hours more on this system else it will be given to another engineer.

You can hold down the option key while you start up the computer. It will give you a grey screen and give you choices of startup systems... Choose the Mac OS and see if the start up is quicker. Sounds like the windows xp setup isn't working properly. I'd think elimination of the existing pc partition on the hard drive while running in mac mode and then running Boot Camp according to apple's instructions. Boot camp is on the Leopard OS disc and will get your computer ready to instal windows xp with an authorized xp disc. After it's up and running in windows xp, you can reinsert the mac os disc while running windows and the drivers will be installed for you...it works great... Plus you can download a copy of apple's bonjuer software and it will help you set up your printers to work on your mac as well.... Good luck and let me know if you need more help... KEN

Daf 45 1992 overheating


If the over heating is occurring at idle at lights , long slow pulls under load, slow moving traffic, I would be investigating the fan drive system. If it is a viscous fan hub I would have it replaced. If it is a horton fan clutch ( air controlled ) system I would be looking at the clutch and control for the air. Other than that, pressure test for coolant leaks, check for over fuelling ( turbo not working properly) and a compression test to check for gaskets and cracked head

I know the Peak Power Handling is 100 Watt but if i was to put some more drivers to the amp, or 1 driver what is Total power of amp can i put a 150watt driver or 200watt in place of the 4


I'd recommend against any experimentation with this unit unless you are a somewhat qualified electrical (audio) engineer. You can do some serious damage to an amp or the speakers if you don't understand the implications of modifying the load, especially in a downward direction.

At 100 watts 'peak' with a sub-4" woofer this is a modest speaker system at best and probably has very limited potential improvement.

Lucent Partner 18D cant fully reboot itself


That one doesn't sound too good.
You could perform a reset through programming which should clear the scratch pad.
Thats done by entering programming on either ext. 10 or 11
Press feature 00 then the left hand intercom twice.
Next enter # 728, the display should say reset save all then reboot the system.If the problem is still there, then the processor is malfunctioning and will need to be replaced.

Hi, im using a brand new acer asprire x1800 desktop..and i can HARDLY connect to the internet using SUN BROADBAND (lan connection already disabled). i have been using the broadband for a few months now....


There could be several possibilities for your internet connection to slow, or stop functioning. Here is a small list of things to check:

1) Run Spybot Search & destroy:
This is a program that will help you find, and eliminate malware, it's free from Here. It also helps speed your PC up by removing unwanted malware that can drain your system's resources.

2) Check your scheduled tasks to determine nothing is set to run during these " down " times.

3) Check to make sure any wireless connections are secured using WEP or other such wifi security. It's a little known fact that people will " pigy-back " on someone's wifi connection to use the internet and download. this can cause internet instability.

4) Call your Internet Service Provider. Your ISP can usually help you determine if the problem is with your computer or their connection.

5) Check your network settings. Your ISP can help you determine the best settings for your connection, as well you may check to see if the network device has an updated driver from the manufacturer.

6) If all else fails, you may wish to take your PC to a licensed technician, or replace the network device if you feel it is faulty.

In my experience most internet instability that happens on a regular basis during a set amount of time is due to malware, or scheduled downloads.
