How do I fix

Try removing the wall plug for 30 seconds and then plug it back in. This will often reset the logic board. If it doesn't, you need a service engineer, as yours is a strange fault.

Here are some samples of common PC problems.

1. Computer has performance has slowed.

This is the number one complaint from most users. There are several reason why this has occurred. However, most can attributed to lack of maintenance. Fragmented data, corrupted registry, spyware, and load of unnecessary programs and services running can all eat away at your PC speed and performance. With us managing your programs and cleaning your drives would easily award you a 30% gain in performance speed.

2. Lockup, freezes, and blue screens of *****.

This is a another common computer problem. However, this particular issue is a bit more serious; therefore, it needs a few diagnostic steps. In most cases this problems are caused by corrupt Windows, driver installation or possibly just spyware. To avoid this problem update your anti-spyware program daily. Having the most up to date signatures will help you avoid having a serious spyware problem. However, if you have concluded that your PC is spyware free. You should update your hardware drivers. The computer cannot communicate with various hardware components without an up to date driver. When it cannot find a driver, the CPU locks up. Also, increasing your virtual memory can also help to avoid freezes. Virtual Memory will allow to you get more use out your computer's RAM. Let us repair your Windows and update your drivers for you.

3. The computer spontaneously reboots or turn itself off.

This computer problem can be usually attributed to a hardware issue. Usually its the power supply is dying or in most cases a dirty or defective cooling fan. The computer trying to cool itself by automatically switching off. So, if you feel a bit of extra heat coming out the computer. Let us clean the fan and make sure it running properly. If your fan is functional, we'll check your power supply. Also, you will be surprised how many people fail to make sure the cables are attached tightly.

4. Strange noises and vibrations.

This is almost totally a hardware issue. You computer is made up of thousands of parts. Its not unheard of that one of them can become unhinged. Overheating can cause expansion of wires and melt something sensitive. High pitch noises such as squealing or whining sounds can be cause electronic components. Whatever the reason, we can conduct a small investigation. Remove the case and run the computer to discover the origin of the computer problem. If its not a simple matter such as a loose wire or fan issue, it may be something more sinister.

5. Your home page, default search engine, or web browser has changed itself.

This is also known as "hack". Spyware has been installed on your computer via almost anything. This action has allowed spyware to install a java script into your web browser. The spyware then sends a message to your browser to change your user settings. For example change your home page to another web page.

It is also a side effect from viruses. See our viruses section for more info.

What is the appropriate fix for front load dryer that turns on and begins to run, but at any moment it stops, beeps over and over and lights all flash. The only way to stop the beeping/flashing is to

Thanks for the make and model of dryer. It is likely the thermistor is faulty. This tells the dryer how hot it is getting. If dryer is ok to start with (cold) and then starts doing strange things once it heats up, then this is what one would suspect. The control board problem would show up in strange ways including not being able to start the drying cycle. For location of thermistor see the drawing on this site. The model may not be exactly same as yours but gives an idea.

My Milee dishwasher indicated that I should add salt to the salt reservoire. I did this and then started to run a quick wash. However, the machine started to make a strange grinding noise. I turned it...

If noise occurs within first minute of starting program, then the is most likely something in the drain pump. Remove filter, On left of sump you will see a non return valve with a metal clip keeping it in place push clip ti centre of sump. remove non return valve and rotate impeller. Start a program, after 60 sec stop program, (debris will have been thrown out of pump.) re-assemble and test. More in depth instructions are in user manual under problem solving

The machine made a slight squeek noise each time it slowed down and then started up again (durring the wash cycle) We also noticed a strange odor. It was almost a asbestos burning type of smell. Then later...

It probably mean the spin brake has failed. If everything else is functioning OK and it is not making anymore strange noises it will be OK however when you open the lid(during spin) if it takes more than 10 seconds to stop then the brake should be replaced. If you need anything else please let me know.

Washer making a weird noise

forgot to include the most important step! We got the dimes out after wadding up a small piece of duct tape, sticky side out, and using locking forceps to grip the tape while fishing out the dimes from the drain pump.
