Question about Dell XPS 600 PC Desktop

Will not turn on

My xps 600 computer will not turn on. It has been suddenly turning off, and when i check the back it feels really hot (the upper vent). I suspect that this is because i put a video card in it. whenever it does shut down, the power button blinks with a yellow color and i am not able to turn it back on until the back feels cooler, or i unplug the computer from the wall. However, even when i do this now it continues to blink yellow regardless of how many times i unplug it.

You will need to replace your power supply! One with 250-350 watts.. Its not putting out enough air for your motherboard. This has happen to a few desktops at my company that I had to replace...

Dyer really hot, not drying clothes

Is the dryer tumbling? If not, you may have a broken belt or some other drive assembly issue.

Also, turn the dryer on and go outside to the vent discharge - you should feel air coming out at a pretty good clip. If not, the vent line is obstructed and will need to be cleaned out.

My daughter's sony vaio vgn-cr420e turns off suddenly and randomly while in windows. battery is currently not in and no overheating is present, which i understand could cause such a problem. however,...

It is very hard to tell when the processor is overheating. The laptop may not feel hot at all. If it is an overheating problem, there could be two different causes. One, the fan may be failing or completely failed. Two, there could be dust buildup on the heatsink which you would not be able to see by looking in the vents. The laptop would need to be disassembled to check the heatsink for the buildup. An easy way to check to see if the fan is working is to turn the computer on, let it run for just a few minutes and if the fan is not blowing hard enough for you to feel it with your hand, try holding the vents up near your face to see if you can feel any air flow.

My dryer is really hot when it is running, but is taking a really long time to dry the clothes

Make sure you check your exhaust hose. It shuld be clear of any lint , and properly exhausted to outside of the home . Try turning on the druer with no load and no heat , find your outside vent and check for air flow . If none is felt you suhld move your dryer away from wall ( if aplicable ) and disconnect the hose and check for any blockage , You can even try the above step with the vent hose disconnected to make sure that the dryer it self is properly venting ( feel for ALOT of air coming out of exhaust port ) . If only a miniscule amount of air ( or none at all ) is coming out of the back of the unit you may have to call a technician to come in and clear out the internal duct work .

Eon 15-g2 upper part of my jbl is getting hot

The tweeter is not the problem. The Eons use the vents below the tweeter to cool the amp and woofer. Sounds to me like you have a power supply problem in the amp, possibly a bad capacitor or diode. You have to check the amp for proper operation.

Frigidaire dryer problem

The vent duct length's sound fine.

Have you confirmed that the heater element is working? You don't mention whether the unit get's hot.

If it get's hot, then suspect the thermostat, or the overtemp stat.

Also, be suspect that users are overloading the dryer.

Also make sure that you feel a strong blast of hot air discharging at the vent end, with the washer/dryer in place.

Check that the vent grills inside of the dryer are clear.

Reply back and I can help you further.

Why does my computer suddenly shut down during use?

remove the side panel and have a look if your cpu fan is turning.... you may need to blow the dust and dirt out of it as well... if the tower even feels remotely warm that's likely the issue... also check the fan on the power supply. either way it will likely need to be cleaned
