Assuming that you are not doing anything with the computer and leaving it idle (not running any programs besides background programs such as anti-virus) you may want to check your power connections. Usually when a computer freeze like that is caused by a power flux somewhere. It could be the power supply that is turning faulty due to a bad capacitor. May want to try it out with a good surge protector or a different outlet first before looking into the power supply.

Picture has a yellow tint. It's from an old video game that ran over 12 hours a day. Has new bulb. Except for the yellow, works fine.


Hello there:
The best way to describe this is what is called screen burn in.
this is very common on screns that have games or pictures that arre displayed for long periods of time without being shut down just like on a computer screen when a screen saver is not used .
there is nothing wrong with the bulb.
the yellow that you are seeing is actually burned into the glass part of the projector and the lense
so if you can and feel like you can dissasemble the projector dissassemble it and locate the glass and see if you can get the yellow tint that will be on the glass and the lense off by using some rubbing alcohol and a cottomn swab
But if it wont come off you will have to replace the lense and the glass ok
Hope this is very helpful for you
Best regards Michael

Blue screen - kmode exception not handled - ntoskrnl.exe


Did you install anything on your computer right before this happend to you??? Usually when this Dreaded Blue Screen comes up its a hardware issue, You may have installed Memory, USB, ECT... check that out and remove some of your memory first and see if that helps you out any. try also a F`12 or F8 start. see if that helps you out any, Get back to me if you have any other Questions Thanks Bear001

Acer Aspire 9300-3655: Shuts Downs When Idle


It sounds like you are getting a blue screen error.
Most of the time these are resolved by manually running CHKDSK /R

To check for a blue screen error, right click on "My Computer"
Go to properties, click on the "advanced" tab, Click on the "Startup and Recovery" settings button.
Under "System Failure" uncheck "Automatically Restart"

Now if your computer is restarting do to an error then you will see the blue screen.
The important information to give back is the 0x000000** part which is displayed.

TV shuts off and red standby/timer lights blinks red until I power the set off. When it shuts down it does so with a very loud snap. When I turn it back on the screen is blue and has light blue...


The most common cause for what you are seeing is a shorted gun in the picture tube. When 2 elements (heater and cathode) of one of the guns inside the neck of the picture tube touch, that gun goes full on and overloads the flyback (high voltage) transformer. If it is in the blue gun, the screen will go bright blue with light blue "retrace" lines in it. The computer senses the overload and shuts the set off. At 2 years old the tech most likely tried removing the short by arcing between the elements. This works sometimes but the short often comes back a few months later. Another attempt at removing the short could be tried, and it might work this time, but it may or may not work for long. The ony other solution is to replace the picture tube but that would cost much more than the set is worth. A qualified tech will be able to tell you if this is the problem in your set.
