Computer freezes after about 30 minutes

Have changed out mouse, keyboard, surge protector and still the computer will lock up after about 15 to 30 minutes.
Is it a hardware or software problem?
I have tried many methods to solve and check troubleshooting in my computer. Everything says okay.

Hi, what happened that made it start behaving this way? check that the bios settings are correct, also after post hold down the f5 key-this will give you the option to get in safe mode, from there you can troubleshoot much better. try and remember what caused the problem. you can try a system restore.there are many reasons why the condition of lock up will happen, sounds like a power management issue, or overheat, or just a software issue. does it lock up while it is in use or just sitting with the screen saver? also check and see if it runs hot. if you need further assistance reply. good luck!

Does it look up or reset? does it give an error? if no error what i would do is as your computer is the bios startup hold down f8, it will bring up a startup option menu, choose disable automatic restart on system failure.

Freeze up of Keyboard & Mouse?


Your issue is not uncommon. The drivers for the equipment have failed. There is no nice way to put it that would make you happy, but the items need to be replaced. They have come to the end of their life span and can no longer be used. Sorry for the bad news.

On model f1de108c, what does error code E7 mean? Yes I'm a newbe.


If you have this KVM device hooked up to a master surge or surge protector:

  • Power it down
  • Unplug the all kvm cables
  • Unplug power cable
  • Check the DIP switches and make sure they are all set to OFF position
  • Re-connect the power cable only
  • Press and hold the + and - buttons together for 30 seconds
The Bank Display should read, "15".
If it does not, then check to see if you are using converters or adapters on the KVM and/or Server End.
If you are, you'll need to remove them.

Next
  • Unplug the power cable
  • Set all the DIP switches to ON
  • Re-connect the power cable
  • Press and hold the + and - buttons for 30 seconds again.
  • Bank Display should be set to "00".
  • Unplug the power cable
  • Connect your VGA, Kybrd, and mouse cable
You should now check and see the OSD coming up on the screen.
To get into the On-Screen Display (OSD) menu, press SCROLL LOCK, SCROLL LOCK,
SPACEBAR on your keyboard.

You should be able to see your master or server computer on the list.

Well the adapters are the main cause, its not that they do not work, but most of the times it causes the KVM to malfunction, hence not recommended. Apart from that if the KVM is connected to a surge master it causes the error.
But not to worry, now that we have reset the KVM it should not be a problem.
The + and - buttons actually releases the static current from the KVM.

Have a great day!

My wireless mouse stop working. I've replace the batteries.


There should be a small place on the mouse to push in using the end of a straightened paper clip. this should reset the mouse to find the wireless emitter that goes with the mouse/keyboard.

The wireless emitter would have to be plugged to an electrical outlet or a surge protector.

Nothing works on my dell optiplex gx 270


First, are you sure the power supply is coming on? Check by placing your hand at the back of the computer where the power cord plugs in, turn on the computer and see if you feel air blowing. It sounds like your power supply died.

If you're not using a quality surge protector, you may have fried the PS. Wal-Mart sells a cheapie one that goes bad quickly. If you spend less that $39.95 on a surge protector, you're basically wasting your money.

If the power supply doesn't come on, replace it, but you'll have to purchase it from Dell because they use proprietary PS - so generic won't work.

Compag presario will not start


Try the following possible solutions:
1. Unplug the power from your computer for 15 minutes.
2. If your computer is plugged in via a surge protector, plug your computer into the power outlet directly, maybe you are dealing with a faulty surge protector.
3. Near the plug where the power plugs into the back of your computer, there is a little switch where you can choose between 120 volts (USA) and 220 Volts (Europe) as input. Make your this did not inadvertently get changed to 220 Volts.

If neither one of these solves your problem, please let me know so I can assist you further. Also, how old is this computer?

Thanks for using the fixya forums!

Switching keyboard and mouse


Mice and keyboard are the two most basic input devices for the modern computer. Not much is needed to change them out.

Turn your computer off. Remove the old keyboard and mouse. Connect the new keyboard and mouse into an available usb port. Restart your computer.

You may have to wait anywhere from 30 seconds to a few minutes, depending on your computer, before the operating system recognizes the new hardware, but once it does, it will start responding.

Tv won't turn on


I suggest you unplug the set for about 15 minutes and then plug it in and try again. Sounds like you may have had a power surge/bump in the middle of the night. Althoguh you are using a surge protector, doesn'r mean the devise hooked to it can't lock up during a power surge.( Surge Protectors are an insurance policy only, not a garrentee ). If unplugging the set and waiting doesn't fix it, it will need to have the power supply section of the board repaired. Good Luck

Keyboard/Mouse Freezes System Sporadically


Wireless routers generally are 2.4 Ghz, as well as the wireless keyboard and mouse. I think there is interference from the router that causes the keyboard and mouse to hang. I had the same problem with my 2.4 Ghz cordless telephones and my new wireless router. Went to 5.8 Ghz telephone and the problem stopped. I'm not sure yet how to work around the keyboard/mouse issue.
