if the hard drive is over 5 years old

I live in a mobile home park. I do all the electrical and plumbing and everything else. You can put an ordinary toilet in. So long as there is a flange. If there is not one you can put one in anywhere you choose. Then underneath you can run the 3 inch line to the main trunk going to the sewer. Don't worry about it freezing being below the insulation. Keep the angle so that it empties fast so there is nothing inside to build up and freeze. If where the toilet used to be has some bad plywood cut out a square to put in a square of new plywood. Measure where the old one was beforehand and mark where you want to put the new 3 1/2 inch hole (usually 12 inches from the framing to center), cut your hole using screws with large heads (maybe even stainless steel) screw down the flange. Using solvent glue the new section to the old section etc.

Shows colors-lines-then freezes???

I have this problem with my 60 gig, I think its due to overheating, I took it apart and put some Artic Silver Thermal paste on the CPU and GPU and it played for about 6-7 hours but then started again. Could be due to overheating or possibly the GPU is going bad

I have a aspire 4520 acer laptop that sometimes freezes up with a white screen and what looks like an equal sign types of lines going through it. kind of in a pattern from one corner to another. it also...


the freezes and lines is most likely the video card failing, or overheating, or damage from overheating.

Its a common problem with the acer aspires, what can you do about it? Vacuum the dust out form the fan or use canned air to blow it out, there will be a lot of it.

Try one of those cooling pads that goes under it.

depending on how bad the problem is with the video card which in most of these laptops can't be user replaced. Got warranty? It might help or might not help at all. That is generally caused by poor cooling and dust in the fan heat sinks so the air doesn't flow and too much heat being generated by the board and its components eventually damaging the video card or the motherboard.

About the 2nd problem, its mainly caused because of your hand touching the touch-pad try a news paper on top of the touch pad or a usb keyboard and see if that problem goes away.

My playstation3 keeps freezing and wont let me play some of my g

It is freezing because your playstation is to close to the tv and its getting to is due to overheating you are having this problem ... so try moving it to another must take care to keep it properly vented.......
The system is prone to overheating, particularly if you happened to have bought older stock.
One way to deal with this is to stand it vertical, and put a small desk fan behind it.Turn on the fan when you turn on the game. I know it's an annoyance but it is a very simple and effective way to work around the problem.
DO NOT use an intercooler fan or any cooling device that gets power from the playstation. It just makes it worse.

when thermal compound fails it gets overheated so you need to look into this too ...replacing the thermal compound on the heat syncs and it should only cost about $5.00 to fix your playstation.

Try standing it up instead of laying it down and make sure it isn't in a coner. The most common reason for freezing is overheating so put it in a cool (NOT COLD!) place in the open. Don't stack things on it or store a bunch of stuff around it. Hope that helps.
