Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Nothing on screen

After short periods, sometimes as little as 2 minutes, it comes up with a message that windows has to shut down. It seams to be getting hotter than usual underneath as well. Now it will not start up at all. The power light comes on and the fan seems to be running very slow but there is nothing on the screen.

I have a toastmaster model 2517 space heater. it comes on for a few minutes and then shuts off and then in a few minutes then comes back on. is that normal for that model? if not,how do I fix it?

it sounds like it is turning off when it reaches the temperature setting you have it at. turn it a little higher and see if it stays on longer.

Tablet goes to sleep within just a 'few' minutes of nonuse i would like to know how to change this to make it just go to screensaver and not to go to sleep or hybernate so soon after i walk away...


Yes the Forced Shut Downs are very harmful to the Power Management System of the laptop, its Batteries, the Hard Drive and the integrity of the Operating System. I strongly advise you to desist from doing this.

If your Laptop goes into Power Save Screen Shut Down, the Hard Drive is unaffected and remains active typically after a short period of User inactivity), A sweep of the Touch Pad or touch of the Space Bar should instantly re-illuminate the Screen. Longer periods of User inactivity, however, can cause Hibernation Mode to set in, during which both Screen and Hard Drive go into Power Save Shut Down.

To Resume Operation from Hibernation Mode press and hold the Power Button for just 1 second, then release it. The Laptop's Login Page or Screen Saver should then appear on the screen after a moment or two, This is the correct procedure. Pressing and holding down the Power Button until the computer shuts down is called a Forced Shut Down and is reserved for emergencies such Screen Freezes, Serious Crashes, Rapid Termination of an Uninterruptible Virus Download, System Failure and other similarly urgent scenarios and only.

You do not say which Operating System you're using or mention the make or model number of your laptop, to enable me to make an informed guess, so I offer you a generalised Windows Solution, which can be extrapolated to other Operating Systems or refined by further clarification, if required.

Right Click on an empty space on the Taskbar > Properties > Notification Area > tick Power if it is not already ticked > Apply > OK > right click on the Battery Icon, bottom right of screen, near the clock > Power Options > Select a Power Plan > tick High Performance > Change Plan Settings > use 4 Drop Menus to select your preferred option in time ranges from as short as 1 minute up to as londg as Never for each of the 4 functions (2 for use under battery power and 2 for battery-less, direct mains powered use) > Save Settings > Restart computer > Test your satisfaction level and Reset again if necessary.

If the above Step-By-Step Guide does not tally with your Operating System, please feel free to Add a Comment/Clarification Request to this Question, identifying your Laptop's Brand Name and Model Number and your Operating System and I will happily do my best to offer you further guidance.

I hope this helps.

On my everex impact pc window was updated , while windows was starting and now i receive the following error message when booting up "the computer restarted unexpectedly or encountered error. windows...

If I undrestand this correctly, this was a windows update? In some caese after a windows update, a restart is required and during shutdown and restart it configures that update. If the computer is shut down, "unexpectedly" or shut down before update is finished, then the update won't complete. If this is what happened, shut down computer by pressing power button on front of tower. Start system back up using on/off button. When screen comes up with options to start mormally or..., arrow up to "start in safe mode". Wait a couple of minutes and a window will come up "what is safe mode". Scroll down in that window until you see "what is safe mode", highlighted in different color, and click on that. It will take a couple of minutes, and another window will come up where you can scroll down to "start safe mode", click on this. This will take a couple of minutes and a window will come up with a suggested restart time and you will see a box "next". Click on the box. You should see the update in the list of things that come up. Click on the process just prior to the update and click "start or next". This will take a little time and will restart your system. When it comes up, let it think until you see a message "system restore complete", click on ok. Now you can click on start, find control panel and click on to open. In your list find "windows udate". Right click on and open. At the top left of screen you will see "check for updates" and click on that. It should recommend the update you just removed. If it it "important" check box, and install. Restart when update is finished and give it the time to do it's configurations.
If I misunderstood your problem you can let me know at "add a comment" or try reposting. Make sure you clarify between a "windows update" or a "windows upgrade".

My laptop worked fine on night then in the morning i started having problems. These are the problem that i am having my with my HP Pavillion 6910us Laptop. 1. My laptop comes on but cuts off after 5 to 6...

At some point if you can get the computer to stay up for a while, you should go into control panel and check your
POWER settings. The other thing you should try if you haven't already is to shut the computer off and pull out the battery. Then after a minute re-install the battery and see
if that helps.

Good Luck
ps: If I come up with any ideas I will post.

Possible overheating

The PS3 has an automatic feature to shut down the system once it acquires overheating. The fans installed vary on how much heat is being generated by the system to cool it down. If the screen freezes occassionally try to set the resolution to a lower setting, say downscale from 1080p to 720p as it will make the system's work a little bit lighter and generate lesser heat. Hope it works.

Microwave keeps shutting off

The magnetron is overheating, tripping the thermostat, which shuts off all power until it cools down.

This is usually caused by a blocked air vent, failed internal cooling fan, or failing magnetron.

If it's out of warranty, I'm sure you'll find it's uneconomical to repair, even if you could get parts for this brand.

Good luck.
